The games are compatible with any number of [[Pokémon GO]] accounts through {{wp|Bluetooth Low Energy|Bluetooth LE}}. Players can send [[Generation I]] {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and their [[Regional variant|Alola Forms]], as well as {{p|Meltan}} and {{p|Melmetal}}, from their phone to the games where they will appear in [[GO Park]]. Pokémon that are one-time or event-only in GO cannot be transferred, such as {{p|Mew}}, {{p|Pikachu}} with various event hats, and {{p|Squirtle}} with sunglasses.
Each time a Pokémon is transferred from Pokémon GO to the Nintendo Switch, the Pokémon GO account will be awarded 100 [[Trainer level|experience]] and one [[candy]] corresponding to each Pokémon transferred. Transferring a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to the Switch for the first time also gives the GO account a [[Mystery Box]], which can be opened once every three (originally seven) days to spawn wild {{p|Meltan}}. Each time before the box can be opened, a Pokémon transfer must be made from Pokémon GO to the Nintendo Switch.
The games are incompatible with [[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon]].
