Pokémon Bank

Versions: Nintendo Switch, Mobile
Subscriptions: Premium

Pokémon HOME can connect with Pokémon Bank in either the Nintendo Switch or Mobile versions. This can be done in two different ways:

The first has you create a passcode in Pokémon HOME and then enter the code in Pokémon Bank. When you do, the games will then be linked and you can transfer a Box at a time from Pokémon Bank into Pokémon HOME.

Alternatively, if the Nintendo Network ID the Pokémon Bank is set up to is connected to the Nintendo Account used for Pokémon HOME, then you will receive the option to transfer the Pokémon entirely from Pokémon Bank to Pokémon HOME.

Once a Pokémon has been sent from Pokémon Bank into Pokémon HOME it cannot return to Pokémon Bank. Pokémon Bank transfer requires a Pokémon HOME Premium Subscription.
