You can transfer Pokemon from GO to Home if you have a Nintendo Account. Link your Pokemon GO to your Nintendo Account, this should be the same account that is linked to your Pokemon Home. Assuming you have already linked it follow the steps below to get started with the transferring process.

  1. Launch Pokemon GO.
  2. Tap on the Poke ball button at the bottom center of the screen.
  3. Here, tap on Settings on the top right corner of the screen.
  4. Scroll down to the very end and tap on Pokemon Home.
  5. Sign in to your Nintendo Account. If you already have then you should see the Send Pokemon button, tap on it.
  6. The new screen will show you GO Transporter Energy. You should be fine if you are transferring for the first time as it will be full. After that depending on the Pokemon that you wish to transfer, you might have to wait or recharge it.
  7. Now, choose the Pokemon that you want to transfer. You can select multiple Pokemon at once (again check energy to see if you can transfer them or need to wait for it to charge).
  8. Finally, confirm the Pokemon that you are transferring and tap on the Transport button.
  9. You will get candies for transferring the Pokemon, and a screen that tells you to finish moving your Pokemon to the box in Pokemon Home.
