Back in 2020, Pokemon Home was released that acted as a storage platform for Pokemon in the main series Pokemon games. Pokemon Home first connected to the two main series game titles Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee!

Towards the end of 2020, Pokemon Home finally allowed connectivity to Pokemon Go. That being said, there are certain exceptions, as well a list of Pokemon that cannot be transferred into Pokemon Go, which we will discuss in this article below.

Keep in mind that the transfer is only one way from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Home. If you are transferring your Pokemon, double check your Pokemon, as well as your priorities!

Once you have sent a Pokemon to Home, they will need to be accepted in Pokemon Home in the Pokemon Home app, after which they will then be placed in the first position available in your boxes.

Once the Pokemon are transferred, the stats of the Pokemon in the main series are calculated just as they were in Pokemon Let’s Go games’ transfer.

List of Pokemon Who Revert Forms on Transfer

There are a list of Pokemon that revert to an earlier form when they are transferred into Pokemon Home. They are:

  • Castform (Sunny Form) – Neutral Castform
