Trainers can now transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Go to Pokémon HOME, but there are more restrictions on what Pokémon can’t be sent over than many players originally predicted. 

The main bulk of non-transferrable Pokémon is made up of special event Pokémon with unique designs, such as costumes, hats, or other accessories. 

From the incredible Armored Mewtwo all the way to the dozens of various event Pikachu, most of your Go exclusive event Pokémon won’t be able to make the journey to HOME. There are a few notable exceptions, such as most of the Ash Cap Pikachu, but outside of that, you won’t have much luck. 

Here are all of the Pokémon confirmed to be non-transferrable between Go and HOME, broken down into event Pokémon and normal Pokémon that were also included on the list for various reasons.
