One of the most interesting aspects of Pokémon: Let's Go launched today with the Nintendo Switch, is that it is associated with the mobile game Pokémon Go . All those creatures you've recorded on your phone? You can now bring them to the console game. Well, at least some of them. Fortunately, synchronizing the two games is a painless process, but there are a few issues to keep in mind. Follow these steps:
The first step is to sync your devices. For the switch, just go to the main menu in Let's Go and select "Open Pokémon Go ". If you have done that, the game will look for your account of Pokémon Go . Open Pokémon Go and go to the Settings menu. (Tap the big poke ball in the middle of the screen first, and then touch "Settings" in the top right corner.) Scrolling all the way down will bring up a list of devices with the Nintendo Switch enabled at the top. Tap "Connect to Nintendo Switch" and you will receive notification about the switch that an account Pokémon Go was found. Choose "Yes" to sync and you're done.
Once you're done with Fuchsia City, the transfer process is very simple. All you have to do is select the Nintendo Switch option on your phone, select the Pokémon you want to send, and then go to the front desk in the park to pick it up.
However, there are some important things to keep in mind Once you transfer a Pokémon to the Switch game, you will not be able to return it to Pokémon Go . So be sure of your decision. You also can not transfer every Pokémon. Let's Go is a remake of the original Game Boy title Yellow which means that you can only transfer first generation Pokémon.
There are a few exceptions. It appears that you can not transfer Mew, which is included in the optional Poké Ball Plus peripheral in this version of the game. Also special event Pokémon like Pikachu with sunglasses or Santa hat can not be transferred. That is, there is a brand new monster – a strange metallic creature called Meltan – that is new to Pokémon Go but can be transferred to Let's Go . In its advanced form, it looks pretty intimidating when you walk around in the switch game.
