You Will Soon Be Able To Transfer Pokemon From Go To Sword And Shield

The Pokemon Company shared some new details about Sword and Shield’s next DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra, during this week’s livestream, but that wasn’t all that was discussed during the broadcast. Near the end of the presentation, the company also confirmed that Pokemon Go compatibility will be added to Pokemon Home before the year is up.

The Pokemon Company didn’t pin down exactly when this compatibility will go live, but it did reconfirm that it’s coming before the end of 2020. Once it’s added, you’ll be able to transfer Pokemon you’ve caught in Pokemon Go directly to Pokemon Home, which means you can then bring them over into Sword or Shield (if that Pokemon appears in the Galar Pokedex).

The Pokemon Company hasn’t detailed how this transfer process will work, but there are a few caveats. First, the company notes that “certain special Pokemon” aren’t transferrable. This presumably applies to the costumed Pokemon that appear during events and other such monsters. Each transfer only works one way as well; any Pokemon brought from Go into Home cannot be returned to its original game.

There may be another wrinkle to the process. Serebii reports that the Japanese Pokemon support site mentions that transferring Pokemon from Go may cost PokeCoins. It appears that there will be a cooldown period after players transfer a Pokemon from Go to Home, and this period can be shortened by spending PokeCoins. It’s not yet clear how many PokeCoins this will cost.

If you do transfer a pocket monster over from the mobile game to Home, you’ll receive a few bonuses. First, you’ll get the Mystery Box in Pokemon Go. When this is opened, the Mythical Pokemon Meltan will spawn in the wild for a limited time, letting you catch it. You can read more about how
