How to move Pokemon from Go to Home is a bit more complicated than it looks.

After the launch of Pokemon Home last Feb. 12, trainers have been moving their Pokemon all over the place. Previously separate games are becoming more and more intermingled with the ability to swap Pokemon from different generations and titles. While console and handheld players have rejoiced at this change, Pokemon GO mobile players are wondering exactly where they fit into this.

How to Move Pokemon from Go to Home

While trainers might not be able to send Pokemon directly from Pokemon GO into Pokemon Home just yet, there is a sneaky work around they can take advantage of. To do this, trainers must have an active Pokemon GO account, Pokemon Home, and a copy of either Let's Go title for their switch.

Note that this works for first generation Pokemon only. Anything beyond the original 150 will not be available to be moved. Additionally, once removed from GO, the transferred Pokemon cannot be returned to GO.

First, trainers need to find and unlock access to the GO Park Complex in Let's Go. They should have the option to bring Pokemon from GO into Let's Go via the park where they then need to catch them. Once caught and placed in their inventory—not party—they can move on to the next step.

Next, trainers should open Pokemon Home and connect their previously played Let's Go title to the service. The process is straightforward from here—transfer the Pokemon from your Let's GO inventory box into the Home box.
