Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO and Pokemon Home have updated with new functionality, allowing the two apps to connect.

Players can set up a link with their Nintendo Account in the settings area. Once that’s complete, Pokemon can be sent with the Home Transporter. Keep in mind that Transporter Energy is needed to move Pokemon from GO to Home.

If you transfer a Pokemon, you’ll receive a Melmetal that can Gigantamax, and it can be used in Pokemon Sword/Shield.
