Managing your Pokemon storage and your items is something that most players will need to deal with in Pokemon Go. But you may be wondering how to transfer more than one legendary Pokemon at a time in Pokemon Go if you aren’t able to do so.
For a while it has been possible to transfer multiple Pokemon in Pokemon Go by tapping and holding on one Pokemon in your storage, then selecting the others.
But this did not apply to legendary or mythical Pokemon, so you had to do those one at a time.
This was likely an inclusion so that players wouldn’t accidentally transfer these powerful and rare Pokemon, but many players have acquired multiples of them through raids, and have been looking for a way to transfer them.
Fortunately, this is now possible on newer versions of the Pokemon Go app, but you need to enable a setting before you can do it.
Our guide below will show you how to transfer more than one legendary or mythical Pokemon at a time in Pokemon Go.
