Months ago, Niantic confirmed that Pokémon HOME, the Pokémon storage service, would be compatible with Pokémon GO before the end of 2020 and today, surprisingly, the application is already enabled, but only for certain players.
As reported by Serebii, on the afternoon of November 10, the connectivity of Pokémon HOME and Pokémon GO was enabled. The application was already available on Nintendo Switch and mobile phones, but it was not yet compatible with Pokémon GO.
However, this has changed for Level 40 Pokémon GO Trainers, as they can now bring creatures into service. With this, the details of how the Pokémon transfer will work have been revealed and it was confirmed that the number of transfers will be limited.
Before the rest, we inform you that it will be possible to transfer creatures from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME, but not vice versa, so once you send your companions to Pokémon HOME, it will not be possible to play with them again in Pokémon GO . This is because, upon reaching Pokémon HOME, creatures will receive their statistics for the main games (such as moves, IV, etc.), which will be determined according to the character’s statistics in Pokémon GO.
What catches your attention is that it was confirmed that transfer power will be required to transport Pokémon to Pokémon HOME. The meter will be 10,000 units and each transfer will cost energy, depending on the level of the Pokémon, if it is legendary, singular or shiny (variocolor).
This range will go from 10 energy points (basic Pokémon that is not shiny and does not exceed 1000 CP) to 10,000 energy points (shiny singular Pokémon). You can see the full table Serebii shared on this page.
If you run out of energy, you will have to wait, as energy will recover over time, but at a very slow rate. Every minute 1 unit of energy will be regenerated, which means that you will have to wait up to almost 7 days for an empty bar to be completely refilled.
Alternatively, you can buy power if you want the meter to fill up instantly. Each Pokécoin will provide 10 energy units, so it will be necessary to spend 1000 Pokécoins to fill an empty bar. To put the above into context, we tell you that on Apple devices a package of 100 Pokécoins is sold for $ 19 MXN, so it would be necessary to spend $ 190 MXN to completely fill an empty meter.
An important restriction is that Pokémon HOME will not support creatures in unusual forms or states, but will transform to their normal form after transfer. Within this group are Castform, Cherrim, Giratina, Darmanitan, Meloetta and Genesect.
On the other hand, there will be other characters that will definitely not be able to transfer due to being modified characters, such as Armored Mewtwo, all Pokémon with accessories, clones, and special editions, such as Flying Pikachu. Spinda will also not be transferable, as it has various coloring patterns.
Additionally, we remind you that a level 100 Melmetal is being distributed that can transform into its Gigamax state. To claim it, you will first have to transfer a creature from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME and then through the Pokémon HOME mobile application you can accept the distribution event and thus obtain the special Melmetal.

Pokémon HOME is available on Nintendo Switch and mobile and has direct compatibility with Pokémon Sword & Shield, Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! and Pokémon GO. You can find more news related to him if you visit this page.
