You will be able to bring Gimmighoul (Roaming Form) from Pokémon GO into Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet via Pokémon HOME.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield can link to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME. Once the games are linked, you can deposit or retrieve Pokémon that can be obtained using those games.
Once you’ve linked them, you’ll be able to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME and, from there, bring them to either the Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield game to join your adventure!
You don’t need to be enrolled in a paid Premium Plan for Pokémon HOME in order to link Pokémon GO and Pokémon HOME. All Trainers will eventually be able to link Pokémon HOME and Pokémon GO. This feature will be made available to Trainers over the coming days, starting with those who have higher Trainer levels in Pokémon GO.

In order to bring certain Pokémon caught in Pokémon GO and transferred to Pokémon HOME into Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, you must either have registered that Pokémon’s species to your Pokédex or have obtained a Pokémon of that species at any point in that game.
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! can link to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME. You can move Pokémon back and forth between Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! or into Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
Once a Pokémon from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! is moved to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, it cannot be returned to its original game!
If you are enrolled in a Premium Plan (paid), you’ll be able to move Pokémon from Nintendo 3DS Pokémon titles to Pokémon HOME using Pokémon Bank.
