Original (9/29):

During today’s Pokemon Sword/Shield presentation for The Crown Tundra, The Pokemon Company provided an update on Pokemon Home. It was announced that the app will be receiving support for Pokemon GO by the end of 2020. However, the transfer process may have more involved than initially thought.

The Japanese Pokemon support site seems to suggest that you’ll need PokeCoins if you want to transfer anything over from Pokemon GO to Pokemon Home. It unfortunately doesn’t elaborate on the details. No additional information is provided on how many PokeCoins would be required, and whether they would be needed each time a transfer is performed.

With October just around the corner, Niantic has detailed what it has in store for Pokemon GO events next month. Players can expect a fashion-themed event, Legendary Raid Bosses, and more.

Here’s the full rundown:

The Mega Buddy Challenge event is available from now until September 28th. Various Timed Research will need to be fulfilled by players and their friends. If players complete the Timed Research, they will gain access to the Timed Research during Halloween to get Mega Gengar. Notably, Shiny Doduo and Dodrio will now be available in game as well.
