It's finally November 16 and the latest addition to "Pokemon" franchise, "Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee," has been released on Nintendo Switch, all across the globe. One of the best, and unique things, about this new game, is that it takes your progress from the hit augmented reality game, "Pokemon GO," and syncs it with the console. Which means that you can transfer your "Pokemon GO" creature collection from your smartphone into this new game. It's a good segway to the reminding readers that the first "Detective Pokemon" trailer has been released.

Syncing smartphone with console

The whole process isn't that hard, but for some people, it might be a bit confusing. So, in order to transfer the Pocket Monsters, the first thing you'll have to do is to start the "Let's Go" game on Switch and go to the main menu. Once you're at the menu, choose “Open Pokémon GO settings.”

After that, the game will start searching for your "Pokemon GO" account, and while that happens, open the "Pokemon GO" app on your smartphone and go to the settings menu.

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom, there will be a list of devices, with the Nintendo Switch at the very top. Choose the “connect to Nintendo Switch” option and then on Switch, you'll be notified that an account has been found. Just press "Yes" to sync all the content and that's it, you've successfully connected your account with the console. I also want to mention, that the new "Pokemon GO" event offers many advantages [VIDEO].

Transferring Pokemon

If you haven't progressed much in the game yet, unfortunately, you won't be able to transfer just yet. In order to transfer your Pokemon, you have to reach the Go Park Complex which is located in Fuchsia City. The fifth gym battle takes place in this city, so you need to play the game a few hours before you can start transferring the Pokemon from your Android/iOS device.

Once you reach the Go Park Complex, all you have to do is to select the Nintendo Switch option on "Pokemon GO," select the monsters that you want to transfer to the game and then head to the receptionist on the left side to complete the transfer.

Although keep in mind that once the Pokemon are transferred to the game, you cannot send them back to "Pokemon GO", so be careful when you choose Pokemon. One more thing is that you cannot transfer every Pokemon, only the first-generation Pokemon can be transferred because "Let's Go" is the remake of classic Game Boy title "Yellow."

According to The Verge, you can’t transfer Mew, because it comes with the optional Poke Ball Plus peripheral, although the new monster called "Meltan" can be transferred to the game.
