One of the most interesting aspects of Pokémon: Let's Go which launches today at Nintendo Switch, is that it connects to the mobile game Pokémon Go . All of these creatures you've taken on your phone? You can now bring them to the console game. Well, some of them, at least. Fortunately, it is a rather painful process to synchronize the two matches, but there are some chinches to be aware of. Here's how to get started.
The first step is to sync your devices. For Switch, all you need to do is on the main menu. Let's go and select "Open Pokémon Go ". When you do, the game starts searching for your Pokémon Go account. While it's up, open Pokémon Go and go to the setup menu. (First press the big poker ball in the center of the screen and then "Settings" in the top right.) If you roll all the way down to the bottom, there will be a list of devices with the Nintendo Switch at the very best. Touch "Connect to Nintendo Switch" and you will receive a notification on the Switch that a Pokémon Go account has been found.
If you just downloaded Let's go you're probably happy to strengthen your pokemon party with creatures you've already captured in Pokémon Go . Sorry, you can not start sending directly. To access the transfer function, you must go to Go Park Complex in the game, located in Fuchsia City. This is quite far into the game ̵1; Fuchsia City is home to fifth of the game's eight gym – so it will be at least a few hours before you can make any transfers, even if you rush through.
When you first get to Fuchsia City, the transfer process is very simple. You only select the Nintendo Switch option on your phone, select the poker magnet you want to send and then go to the receptionist in the park to pick them up.
However, there are some important things to keep in mind. First of all, when you transfer a poker game to the Switch game, you can not return it to Pokémon Go so be sure of your decision. You can also not transfer any poker monkey. Let's go is a recreation of the original Game Boy title Yellow which means you can only transfer the first-generation poker monkey.
There are few exceptions. It seems that you can not transfer Mew, as in this version of the game comes in the Poké Ball Plus periphery. Special Pokémon, like Pikachu wearing sunglasses or a hat, can not be transferred. It is said that there is a whole new monster – a remarkable metallic creature called Meltan – which is new to Pokémon Go but can be transferred to Let's Go . In its developed form, it looks quite scary after you in the Switch game.
