Hello trainers! Today the Japanese site for Let’s GO has been updated with details on how to connect Let’s GO and Pokémon GO, along with information on what can and can’t be transferred along with the restrictions caused by transferring.

As we know, in Pokémon Let’s GO: Pikachu! and Let’s GO: Eevee! once you get to Fuchsia City, you will unlock GO Park, which allows you to transfer Pokémon to the games from Pokémon GO. There are 20 Parks, and each can hold 50 Pokémon. That makes it to where you can have 1000 Pokémon in GO Park at any given time! The GO Park complex in the games will be where the Safari Zone was in Pokémon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow, which is in the northern area of the city, it’s gonna be hard to miss.
