Pok√©mon GO to Home transfers coming “within the year”

Finally, it’s happening. Soon, all your shiny Pok√©mon¬†will have a new Home.

During the Pok√©mon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass news tonight, The Pok√©mon Company revealed that a long-awaited feature is finally on the horizon. Soon, you’ll be able to transfer your Pok√©mon from Pok√©mon GO into Pok√©mon HOME, and then onto Pok√©mon Sword and Shield.

Much like GO’s connectivity with Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, transferring Pok√©mon to HOME will allow you to open the Mystery Box in Pok√©mon GO, letting you catch a bunch of Meltan in that game. In addition to this, you’ll also receive a special Meltmetal in HOME to transfer over to Sword and Shield, which can Gigantamax ‚ÄĒ a terribly kept secret, but very cool nonetheless.

Unfortunately, there’s no real set date for the update yet. While the second Expansion Pass DLC ‚ÄĒ The Crown Tundra ‚ÄĒ launches in a few weeks, the only timeline given for GO to HOME transfers is “by the end of 2020.”

We’ll be sure to update you as more information becomes available.
