Here’s How to Connect Pokemon Go with Pokemon Let’s Go!

    Pokemon: Let’s Go is finally here, and that means we can live out our dreams of catching ’em all in our living rooms.

    Whether you’ve picked up Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! you’re in for an adventure, and one that’s made even more rewarding if you’ve put in the hours on mobile game Pokemon Go.

    That’s because you can connect the two games up and transfer Pokemon you’ve captured when out and about over to the Switch.

    It’s important to know that Pokemon won’t go straight into your collection, but instead will enter a sort of safari park, where you can keep an eye on them as well as try to recapture them for your party.

    That means you can’t just transfer across your most powerful Pokemon and beat the new game in a day. Instead you’ll have to level up to a point where you’re strong enough to capture the Pokemon within the park.

    Additionally, once you’ve transferred a Pokemon over to Pokemon: Let’s Go, you won’t be able to transfer it back, and certain Pokemon cannot be transferred over at all, such as most mythical Pokemon. So choose wisely!

    We’ve also included a guide on the best places in the world to find rare Pokemon, so you can increase your roster while you’re on holiday!
