You'll Soon Be Able To Bring Pokemon From Go To Sword And Shield
The Pokemon Company shared some new details about Sword and Shield’s next DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra, during today’s livestream, but that wasn’t the only information we got during the broadcast. The company also confirmed that Pokemon Go compatibility will be added to Pokemon Home before the year is up.
The Pokemon Company didn’t pin down exactly when this compatibility will go live, but it did reconfirm that it’s coming before the end of 2020. Once it’s added, you’ll be able to transfer Pokemon you’ve caught in Pokemon Go directly to Pokemon Home, which means you can then bring them over into Sword or Shield.
What’s more, you’ll receive a few bonuses if you transfer a pocket monster over from the mobile game to Home. First, you’ll receive the Mystery Box in Pokemon Go. When this is opened, the Mythical Pokemon Meltan will spawn in the wild for a limited time, letting you catch it. You can read more about how that process works in our Meltan guide.
On top of that, you’ll get a special Mystery Gift in Pokemon Home: Melmetal, Meltan’s evolved form. This particular Melmetal is capable of Gigantamaxing, making it a very powerful addition to your collection. Gigantamax Melmetal’s G-Max Move is called G-Max Meltdown, a Steel-type attack that dishes out damage and prevents the opposing Pokemon from using the same move consecutively.
In the meantime, The Crown Tundra DLC launches October 22. This expansion takes you to the eponymous Crown Tundra, an arctic region where you’ll be appointed the head of an expedition team by a man named Peony. The Crown Tundra is also home to every Legendary Pokemon from previous games in the series, as well as a handful of new Legendaries like Galarian Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.
Finally, to celebrate the arrival of The Crown Tundra, The Pokemon Company is giving away a handful of special Pikachu wearing Ash’s different caps from the anime series. These Pikachu are being distributed via passwords across the different Pokemon social media channels. The first, Original Cap Pikachu, is available right now via the password P1KACHUGET.
