Pokemon Home first launched in February 2020, and now after a long wait, it will finally allow players to transfer their Pokemon from Pokemon Go to their Pokemon Sword and Shield games. Some players are finding the limitations on transfers too extreme, however, with the service only available to Level 40 Pokemon Go players, along with extensive wait times for transfers.
While previously select Pokemon were able to be transferred from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Home using the Pokemon Let’s Go! games as an in-between, now transfers can be made directly to Home. Pokemon can’t be transferred back to Pokemon Go, however, so be careful with what you transfer.
According to Serebii.net, the transfer option is currently only available to players at Level 40, and works on an ‘energy’ basis. The Go Transporter slowly recharges energy for transfers, with a maximum of 10,000 energy stored. To recharge the maximum, players will either have to wait 6 days and 23 hours, or pay 1000 PokeCoins for a full charge.
