    • Pokémon that can be registered in the Pokédex in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield can be moved from Pokémon HOME to these games.

    • EXCEPTION: Please note that once a Pokémon has been moved to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, it cannot be transferred back to the Pokémon: Let’s Go titles from Pokémon HOME – even if that’s where the Pokémon came from originally.
