Link your games to claim special Pokémon
If you deposit a Pokémon from Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl into the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME, you will receive Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup with Hidden Abilities as a Mystery Gift in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME. If you deposit a Pokémon from Pokémon Legends: Arceus into the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME, you will receive Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott with maximum effort levels as a Mystery Gift in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.
A New Home for Your Pokémon
Pokémon™ HOME is a cloud service for the Nintendo Switch™ system and compatible mobile devices designed as a place where all Pokémon can gather. By linking the same Nintendo Account to both the Nintendo Switch version and mobile version of Pokémon HOME, you’ll be able to access the same Pokémon Boxes on both versions. With Pokémon HOME you can move Pokémon between compatible games, trade Pokémon on the go, and more! You can also purchase a subscription to the Pokémon HOME Premium Plan for more features.
With Pokémon HOME, you can manage your collection of Pokémon across multiple games. Gathering your Pokémon is just the beginning—you can trade with friends or with anyone around the world directly using the Pokémon HOME mobile app. A subscription to the Premium Plan gives the ability to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Bank, expands the number of Pokémon that can be deposited from 30 to 6,000, expands the number of Pokémon that can be placed in the Wonder Box and GTS at one time (mobile version only), allows you to host your own Room Trades (mobile version only), and gives you the Judge function right within Pokémon HOME.
* Certain special Pokémon can't be transferred. Changes to moves may occur when transferring to or from certain games. For more information, please visit https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/49104
