Non-transferable Pokemon in Pokemon Let’s Go are Pokemon you can’t transfer from Pokemon Go. In Pokemon Let’s Go, you can basically send Pokemon from your Pokemon Go account, if you connect it with the game on your Switch. In fact, this is necessary to catch certain Pokemon. Unfortunately, you can’t transfer all Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let’s Go. Our Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee Non-Transferable Pokemon guide will show you which Pokemon can’t be transferred from Pokemon Go.
Which Pokemon Are Not Transferable Between Pokemon Let’s Go & Pokemon Go?
As it turns out, some Pokemon are not transferable between Pokemon Go and Pokemon Let’s Go. In case you didn’t know, you can indeed transfer Pokemon between these two games, after connecting your Pokemon Go account with Pokemon Let’s Go. We’ve covered it in detail in our How to Connect & Transfer from Pokemon Go guide, if you need instructions. In fact, for Pokemon like Meltan and Melmetal, this is the only way to obtain them. But, sadly, this doesn’t work with all of them.
So, which Pokemon aren’t transferable between Pokemon Go and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee? Well, first off, the event Pokemon. This means that you can’t transfer any Pikachu or Raichu special hat variants from Go to Let’s Go. And I do mean none of them: the Santa version, the Ash version, the Party Hat version; no special Pikachus or Raichus. Same goes for the Sunglasses variants of Squirtle, Wartortle, and / or Blastoise.
Last, but not least, you can’t transfer mythical Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let’s Go. Makes sense, because that’d allow many players to have mew right from the get-go. The exception to this rule are Meltan and Melmetal, because, again, you can only get them by transferring back and forth. For more info on that, check out the links provided above.
