Now that Pokemon Home is out, you’ll probably want to transfer Pokemon from your Game Boy, DS, 3DS, Switch, Pokemon Go, and Pokemon Bank to the new service. Well, it’s just as complicated to bring old Pokemon to Pokemon Home as it was to transfer them to the Pokemon Bank when it came out. You’ll still have to have a flowchart and use workarounds to get all your Pokemon to Pokemon Home.

Yes, you can transfer all your Pokemon to Pokemon Home from as far back as the Game Boy Advance games. However, this isn’t very easy because you can’t just bring them directly into the app. There are also two versions of Pokemon Home, the Switch app, and the mobile app that each have different capabilities.

Which games can transfer Pokemon to Pokemon Home?
You can transfer Pokemon from the Pokemon Bank easily. You just need to make sure your Nintendo Network ID from the 3DS console your bank is located on is linked to the Nintendo Account you’re logged into your Switch or the phone app with.

On the Switch Pokemon Home app, the process is simple. Just follow the prompts, and your Pokemon will transfer from the bank to Home.
On mobile the option is a bit hidden:Tap the hamburger menu icon on the bottom of the screenSelect “Options”Tap “Move Pokemon”
You’ll get the selection here to either use a 3DS or select “No Nintendo 3DS.” I found it easier to go with the “No Nintendo 3DS” option. It will just automatically transfer any Pokemon stored on the Pokemon Bank of the Nintendo Network ID you have linked to your Nintendo Account. The process can take a bit, depending on how many Pokemon you have in the bank. When it’s complete, all your Pokemon will be moved to Pokemon Home, and you’re good to go!
