You can now transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Go to Pokémon Home, and vice versa. For those who have been waiting to share their shiny Pokémon, now’s your chance. But you won’t be able to do it on a whim, and there are various restrictions that you need to keep in mind. You also need to be able to use the Transporter to send your Pokémon over, and it requires you to use Go Transporter Energy. The Transporter requires a certain amount of energy for every Pokémon you send over.

Here’s the break down.

Standard PokémonLegendary PokémonMythical Pokémon
Base 10 EnergyBase – 1,000 EnergyBase – 2,000 Energy
Shiny – 1,990 EnergyShiny – 9,000 EnergyShiny – 8,000 Energy
CP (1,100 to 2,000) – 100 EnergyCP (1,001 to 2,000) – 300 EnergyCP (1,001 to 2,000) – 500 Energy
CP above 2,001 – 300 EnergyCP 2,001 – 500 EnergyCP 2,001 – 700

This is the basic breakdown you can expect. The energy levels vary for the Pokémon, especially for those in the specific ranges. For example, a standard Pokémon that is 1,500 is likely to be above 1,990 energy. The same goes for a legendary shiny Pokémon. Those are the expected energy costs you need to deal with.

Every trainer receives 10,000 energy, and you receive 60 energy every hour. Knowing how much energy you have and how much time it takes to charge up, you want to make sure you’re careful with how many Pokémon you send over to Pokémon Home.
