Pokémon GO X Pokémon HOME - Receive a special Melmetal in Pokémon HOME

The official Pokémon website has announced that players of Pokémon GO can now transfer Pokémon to Pokémon HOME. To celebrate this new feature, trainers who transfer a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME will receive the Mythical Pokémon Melmetal.

Connect Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME for a Melmetal That Can Gigantamax

Pokémon GO Trainers will soon be able to transfer Pokémon to Pokémon HOME, and can receive the Mythical Pokémon Melmetal after their first transfer.

Pokémon GO is now officially connected to Pokémon HOME, giving Trainers the opportunity to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME! This feature is rolling out incrementally to all Trainers based on their current Trainer level. Keep checking Pokémon GO for the opportunity to transfer your Pokémon to Pokémon HOME.

Trainers will use a new feature in Pokémon GO called the GO Transporter to transfer Pokémon to Pokémon HOME. Every time you transfer a Pokémon, some energy will be drained from the GO Transporter. The energy used by the GO Transporter recharges over time, but it can also be replenished with PokéCoins. The energy cost to use the GO Transporter to transfer Pokémon varies depending on the Pokémon.

To celebrate this development, Trainers who transfer a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME will receive the Mythical Pokémon Melmetal. This special Melmetal can Gigantamax in any battle in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield that allows it. This Melmetal can be received as a Mystery Gift in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME. Trainers can then use the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME to transfer this Melmetal to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield and add it to their team. This is the first time Gigantamax Melmetal has been made available to Trainers, so don't miss out on this chance to team up with the Mythical Steel-type Pokémon!

After transferring a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME, Trainers can open the Mystery Box in Pokémon GO, causing the rare Mythical Pokémon Meltan to appear on the map for a limited time. Trainers can evolve Meltan into Melmetal by gathering 400 Meltan Candy.

Receive a special Melmetal in Pokémon HOME

The first time you transfer Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME, you’ll receive the Mythical Pokémon Melmetal as a Mystery Gift in Pokémon HOME. This Melmetal is a special one that has never been obtainable until now. It is capable of Gigantamaxing under the right conditions, such as during Max Raid Battles in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games. You will not be able to feed Melmetal Max Soup, which is available in The Isle of Armor, the first round of content for the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. (Note: Full version of game required to use Expansion Pass for that game. Games and Expansion Passes sold separately or in special bundle packs.)

The Mystery Gifts feature is available only on the mobile device (iOS/Android) version of Pokémon HOME. Certain features may be unavailable depending on your device or OS version.

Linking with Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield is a feature available only on the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME.

Catch Meltan in Pokémon GO

If you send Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME, you’ll be able to open the Mystery Box, causing the Mythical Pokémon Meltan to appear on your map for a limited time. It is important to note that a set period of time must have passed since you last opened the Mystery Box in order to be able to open it again.

If a Trainer who does not have a Mystery Box sends a Pokémon to Pokémon HOME, they will obtain a Mystery Box.

Players of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield hit the one million Trainers defeating Zeraora target and as a result, a Shiny Zeraora will be distributed on Pokémon Home for one week from June 30th, 2020 until July 6th, 2020 at 23:59 UTC to players that qualify.

Earn a Shiny Zeraora and Armorite Ore in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield

If one million Trainers defeat Zeraora in a Max Raid Battle, players can receive a special Pokémon along with items that will be useful in The Isle of Armor.

The Isle of Armor, the first part of the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, has arrived! To celebrate the release of this new chapter in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield adventure, players of those games can participate in Max Raid Battles against the Mythical Pokémon Zeraora.

From Wednesday, June 17, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. PDT until Sunday, June 28, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, Zeraora will appear in Max Raid Battles, so gather your friends as you attempt to take down this Mythical Pokémon. Zeraora has the potential to appear in three-star Max Raid Battles or higher, and in five-star Max Raid Battles, there's a chance that you'll encounter an especially powerful Shiny Zeraora. You won't be able to catch Zeraora after it's defeated, but if at least one million Trainers manage to defeat Zeraora during this special event, a Shiny Zeraora will be available to everyone in Pokémon HOME.

In addition to Shiny Zeraora, every player who takes part in these Max Raid Battles will receive a piece of Armorite Ore for every hundred thousand Trainers that defeat Zeraora after the first million is reached (up to a maximum of 10 pieces). Armorite Ore can be used in the dojo on the Isle of Armor to have your Pokémon learn moves.

If the target numbers are reached, you'll be able to claim your Shiny Zeraora and Armorite Ore via the Mystery Gifts menu in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME from Monday, June 29, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. PDT until Monday, July 6, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Note that you don't have to have the Expansion Pass to encounter or receive Zeraora. In order to claim these gifts, you must also meet the following condition:

You must have deposited a Pokémon in Pokémon HOME or moved a Pokémon to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield from Pokémon HOME between Wednesday, June 17, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. PDT and Monday, July 6, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT.

Note: Linking with Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield is a feature available only in the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME. For more details, please visit the Pokémon HOME section of the Pokémon Support website.

Assemble your best team to battle this Electric-type Mythical Pokémon, and help players from all over the world reach one million victories! And be sure to check out The Isle of Armor, the first part of the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, available now!

Get a Shiny Zeraora and some Armorite Ore!

We hit our targets for the number of Trainers victorious in special Max Raid Battles!

We hit our targets for the number of Trainers to defeat Zeraora in special Max Raid Battles celebrating the release of The Isle of Armor, the first wave of content for the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. It looks like Trainers' skills were enough to impress Zeraora, because now a Shiny Zeraora will be joining your team! What's more, you'll also get some Armorite Ore, which will come in handy on the Isle of Armor.

You can receive all these gifts from the Gift Box in the Mystery Gifts menu in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.

Eligibility Conditions
In order to be eligible to receive the gifts, you must have moved Pokémon between Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield and Pokémon HOME from 15:00 UTC on June 17 to 23:59 UTC on July 6.

Note: You'll need to have linked the same Nintendo Account to both the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME and the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME in order to claim your gifts.

Note: The Pokémon displayed in the Gift Box will appear to have its regular coloring, even if it's a Shiny Pokémon.

Note: It may take some time for gifts received via code to appear after the code is used.
