Pokémon HOME – Pokémon GO Connectivity Is Now Live, It’s Just Not Available To Everyone Yet


Good news trainers (well, kind of), Pokémon HOME is finally able to be connected with Niantic’s augmented-reality smartphone game Pokémon GO. This means you can now transfer pocket monsters from GO to your Pokémon games on the Switch.

The catch, according to Serebii.net, is that it’s currently limited to Level 40 GO trainers. To transfer a pocket monster, you’ll have to link GO to your Nintendo account under the settings option and then access HOME Transporter in order to send Pokémon across.

Every time you transfer a Pokémon Transporter Energy is used, which recovers over time. You can read more about this in our previous post. Apparently, a Shiny Legendary will use up all the energy. If you do transfer a monster, you’ll receive a one-time Mystery Gift for a special Level 100 Melmetal which is capable of Gigantamaxing.

There are no details about when this feature will become available to lower level GO trainers just yet, but if we hear anything, we’ll be sure to let you know. Are you able to make use of this transfer feature between Pokémon HOME and Pokémon GO yet? Tell us down below.
