If you tap on one of your Pokemon in the inventory a wild menu appears! Swipe the page to go to the bottom to find that there's a "transfer" button. Tapping it yields a menu with the following text,

You can't take it back after it's transferred to the professor. Do you really want to transfer [pokemon species you tapped on] to the Professor?"

What's the point of this?

  • Unlke in regular pokemon games (where you level up and evolve pokemon through battle) in pokemon go you use species-specific candy which you get primerally from catching duplicates. Transferring to the professor lets you clean up the heap of duplicate pokemon and get a little more candy. Jul 30, 2016 at 5:38
