Pokemon Go players can now transfer their Pokemon creatures to another game with Pokemon Home connectivity. This feature allows players to send the Pokemon they have collected in the popular mobile AR game to the cloud-based service Pokemon Home, which connects to other Pokemon games. In essence, on the Nintendo Switch, players can send their creatures to Pokemon Home from where they can be used in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. However, it is a one-way transfer and you cannot get your Pokemon back.
Like on the official Pokemon support site, Pokemon Go and Pokemon Home can be linked together. Players will need the mobile version and the Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Home, both of which must be linked to the same Nintendo account in order to transfer creatures to Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield on the Switch. You will also need a paid Nintendo Switch Online membership to transfer Pokemon.
Transferring Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Home is done with the Go Transporter in the game that uses Transporter Energy. This means you have to wait for the Go Transporter to fully charge over time and then start transferring Pokemon. Each Pokémon costs energy to transfer, depending on its class. According to a Reddit post Office In TheSilphRoad subreddit, the transfer of a normal Pokemon costs 10 energy, a normal Shiny Pokemon costs 1,990 energy, a legendary basic Pokemon costs 1,000, while a legendary Shiny Pokemon costs 9,000 energy.
The Go Transporter can store up to 10,000 energy at a time, and players must be level 40 to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Home.
Once you have transferred the Pokemon you like to Pokemon Home, they can now be transferred from Pokemon Home to Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield. However, the species must be registered in your Pokedex. This is also an easy transfer. Once the Pokemon has been sent to Pokemon Home, it cannot be returned to Pokemon Go.
To start transferring Pokemon, tap the Poke Ball in Pokemon Go, select Settings, select Pokemon Home, and sign in to your Nintendo account to link your Pokemon Go app to it. Next, select Send Pokemon, check the Go Transporter’s power, select the Pokemon you want to transfer and tap Next. Once you’ve made sure everything is as it should be, click Submit. Once you’re done, you can head over to the mobile or Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Home to get it.
