Transferring Pokémon

Earn Candy by transferring Pokémon to the Professor

As you catch more Pokémon, you may transfer some of them to Professor Willow to free up your Pokémon storage. You’ll receive Candy in exchange for transferring a Pokémon. Be careful - you can’t get your Pokémon back after you’ve transferred it away.

To transfer a Pokémon:

  1. In Map View, touch the Main Menu button.
  2. Touch the Pokémon button.
  3. Select a Pokémon from your list.
  4. Touch the Menu and select Transfer.

To transfer multiple Pokémon at once:

  1. In Map View, touch the Main Menu button.
  2. Touch the Pokémon button. 
  3. Locate a Pokémon you’d like to transfer. Touch and hold until the Pokémon becomes selected. 
  4. Touch any other Pokémon you’d like to transfer.
  5. To transfer the selected Pokémon, touch the Transfer button.

 

 Note: You cannot transfer your buddy Pokémon, favorite Pokémon, or Pokémon assigned to Gyms.
