Regardless of which device you started on, the same Pokémon UNITE save data can be accessed from a Nintendo Switch™ system or a mobile device by linking the correct Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account.
Transfer access to existing Nintendo Switch save data to a new mobile device
Launch Pokémon UNITE on your mobile device, then on the title screen select Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club -whichever you previously linked when you started on the Nintendo Switch version.
- If you input the correct Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account, then the associated save data can be accessed via both Nintendo Switch and Smartphone devices.
Transfer access to existing mobile device save data to the Nintendo Switch
Before launching the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon UNITE, go to Settings in the mobile version and link a Nintendo Account or a Pokémon Trainer Club account. Note that the Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account that you link to both the mobile device and Nintendo Switch versions must be the same. Additionally, once an account has been linked, it cannot be unlinked.
If you previously linked a Nintendo Account, your mobile version save data will automatically be synced with the Nintendo Switch version if the Nintendo Account used is the same. If you previously linked a Pokémon Trainer Club account, your mobile version save data can be synced with the Nintendo Switch version by linking the same Pokémon Trainer Club Account when choosing a log-in platform during the initial launch process.
- If you launch the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon UNITE before linking the associated user’s Nintendo Account to the mobile device version of Pokémon UNITE, that user’s Nintendo Account can no longer be synced with the existing mobile version save data.
- If your existing mobile version save data is not synced before starting the Nintendo Switch version, you will need to prepare a separate Nintendo Switch user that is linked to the correct Nintendo Account in order to access the same save data on both devices.
Transfer access to existing mobile device save data to a new mobile device
Open Pokémon UNITE on your previous device and make sure that one of the following log-in platforms has been linked to your Pokémon UNITE save data. Note that the availability of log-in platforms may not be the same for all users.
Pokémon Trainer Club account
Apple (only when the new device is also iOS)
- Download Pokémon UNITE on your new mobile device, open the app, and select the log-in platform that corresponds to the save data on your previous device in order to sync with the new device.
Please note: If you start the mobile version without initially selecting the log-in platform corresponding to your existing data in the setup process, it will not be possible to sync your data with the mobile version save data from your previous device. If this occurs, you will need to delete and reinstall the application to start again.
