The app, which currently lets players transfer Pokémon between games on Nintendo Switch and with past titles through Pokémon Bank, will soon allow monsters to be traded from Pokémon GO. A new chart showing how all of the games can connect was shown during today’s Pokémon presentation.
Interestingly, by transferring a monster from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME, players will receive a Mystery Gift for a special Melmetal which can Gigantamax. No such Melmetal has ever been released before.
Weight: ????.? lbs.
Ability: Iron Fist
While Gigantamaxed, the Mythical Pokémon Melmetal can use its flexible and elastic liquid-metal body to land punches even when opponents keep their distance. Steel-type attacks used by Gigantamax Melmetal will change to G-Max Meltdown, a powerful move that slams opponents with shock waves and swirling liquid metal. This move doesn’t only deal damage to opponents—it also prevents them from using the same move consecutively.
If a solid release date for Pokémon HOME’s GO connectivity is revealed, or should the service go live before we get an announcement, we’ll be sure to let you know.
