How To Transfer Data & Saves - Switch & Mobile

What You Need First

  • Nintendo Switch with a Pokemon Unite account
  • Mobile Phone (iOS or Android)
  • Nintendo Account or Pokemon Trainer Club account
  • Internet connection

In order to seamlessly transfer data from your Nintendo Switch to you mobile phone or vice-versa, you need to have the above ready. As you need to link both of the devices together, having the username and the passwords memorized can make this process faster and smoother.

Transfer Is Between Accounts

Switch to mobile data transfer

If you have a Nintendo Account, use that account for both your mobile and your Nintendo Switch to transfer your saves. A Pokemon Trainer Club account works the same way. These are the only 2 accounts that can be used to transfer save data.

Why Transfer Your Data?

Better Flexibility

Depends on your preference

With both accounts connected, you can either play on your mobile device or your Nintendo Switch. This can give you the flexibility as both devices have their own strengths and weaknesses. In a way, it also allows you to use the existing features of both systems to your liking.

Mobile vs Switch Version

Progress Is Shared

Should one of your devices fail, you still have the option to continue playing without worrying about your save data. Make progress on one device and you can immediately continue with another device. Note that you have to use either a Nintendo Account or Pokemon Trainer Club to enjoy this benefit.
