Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee: How to Trade Pokemon

Let’s Go Trade!

Before starting to trade, it is essential to note you must first deliver the parcel to Professor Oak (which is very early on in the game), and you must have at least two more Pokemon in your party aside from your Pikachu or Eevee (a total of three Pokemon in your party).

In Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee, you have the option to trade locally if the other player is in the same room as you or online if the other player is far away.

To trade locally in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee, this is what both players should do:

  1. Press the X button to open the menu.
  2. Then, select Communicate.
  3. Then, you’ll have two options: Mystery Gift and Play With Others. Select Play With Others.
  4. After that, select Nearby Player (Local Wireless Communication).
  5. Then, you will have three options: Link Trade, Single Battle, or Double Battle. Select Link Trade.
  6. After that, you will be asked to set a Link Code of three Pokemon from ten different Pokemon. It can be whatever you like just as long as the other player inputs the same Pokemon. For example, the Link Code you set is a Pikachu, another Pikachu, and a Bulbasaur, the other player must also input a Pikachu, another Pikachu and a Bulbasaur.
  7. Then, the system will look for another player nearby with the same Link Code.
  8. After finding the other player, you can then choose the Pokemon you want to trade. Select the Pokemon you want to trade and select Offer as a trade on the prompt.
  9. Next, you will see the Pokemon you are about to trade and the Pokemon the other player is about to trade. You have the option to check your own Pokemon or check the other player’s offered Pokemon. Once you are good to go, select Trade Pokemon.
  10. Then, the trade will start and just like that you have traded with another trainer!

On the other hand, to trade with your friend online or through the internet, it is essential to note that a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is required before you can do that.

To trade online in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee, this is what both players should do:

  1. Press the X button to open the menu.
  2. Then, select Communicate.
  3. Then, select Play With Others.
  4. After that, select Faraway Player (Internet).
  5. Then, select Link Trade.
  6. After that, you will be asked to set a Link Code of three Pokemon from ten different Pokemon. Again, it can be whatever you like just as long as the other player inputs the same set of Pokemon. It is worth mentioning, however, that the Link Code you set should be as unique as possible. This is because you are connected to the internet and the odds of people also setting three Pikachus or three Eevees as a Link Code are very high. Your Link Code should be as unique as possible to ensure a definite and secure connection with the other player. Then, the system will look for another player online with the same Link Code.
  7. After finding the other player, select the Pokemon you want to trade and select Offer as a trade on the prompt.
  8. Next, you will see the Pokemon you are about to trade and the Pokemon the other player is about to trade. You have the option to check your own Pokemon or check the other player’s offered Pokemon. Once you are good to go, select Trade Pokemon.
  9. Then, the trade will start and just like that you have traded with another trainer through the internet!

There is also a feature from previous Pokemon games called Wonder Trading, where you can trade with random trainers. This is a missing feature for Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu, and Eevee. However, we can simulate a Wonder Trade in the game. It is important to note that this method also requires you to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription as it involves using the internet.

To simulate Wonder Trade in Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu, and Eevee, this is what you must do:

  1. Press the X button to open the menu.
  2. Then, select Communicate.
  3. Then, select Play With Others.
  4. After that, select Faraway Player (Internet).
  5. Then, select Link Trade.
  6. After that, you will be asked to set a Link Code three Pokemon from ten different Pokemon. To simulate a Wonder Trade, set common Link Codes like three Pikachus or three Eevees (based on experience, three Pikachus is the most common Link Code). For sure there are other people in the world who have set those as Link Codes.Then, the system will look for another player online with the same Link Code.
  7. After finding the other player, select the Pokemon you want to trade and select Offer as a trade on the prompt.
  8. Next, you will see the Pokemon you are about to trade and the Pokemon the other player is about to trade. You have the option to check your own Pokemon or check the other player’s offered Pokemon. Once you are good to go, select Trade Pokemon.
  9. Then, the trade will start and just like that you have traded with another trainer!

With these methods, there is no more excuse not to complete your Pokedex! You (or your friends) are now one step closer to catching ‘em all!
