Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME Transfer

In 2020, Pokémon HOME was released as a storage platform for Pokémon in the main series Pokémon games. Having first connected to the main games with Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee!, Pokémon GO connectivity to Pokémon HOME was released towards the end of 2020.

This transfer is only one way from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME so make sure that you select Pokémon you definitely want to transfer.

Certain Pokémon and Pokémon Costumes/Forms cannot be transferred. Mega Evolved Pokémon and Shadow Pokémon cannot be transferred.

After you have sent a Pokémon to HOME, they will need to be accepted into Pokémon HOME in the Pokémon HOME app where they will then be placed in the first available position in your boxes.

Once transferred, the Pokémon's stats in the main series are calculated as they were in Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee! transfer. Click here for full details
