I like that Home will have a national dex, and online trading to complete it. Hopefully, this is a step towards having a national dex in the next games, possibly the next Let's Go games, or the Gen 4 remakes

You are talking as if the national dex is some amazing new feature that they are working towards. Maybe you are new to the franchise, but Pokemon has had the national dex since gen 1. Also they've had the capability to transfer Pokemon to the next gen since gen 3 (it was only for technical reasons that it was not since gen 1) and GST has been there since gen 4 (which also was the first generation were this was technically possible). It's only in SwSh that they removed those features, bumped up the price of what remains by 50%, and then sell the features back to the players for $16/year.

Hopefully this is a step towards even coming close to meeting the standards that the Pokemon core games met during their first 20 years.
