I would like to know how to evolve Pokémon via trade, such as Machoke into Machamp on Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.

Currently, I have 2 Nintendo Switches, a digital copy of both games on the same Nintendo log in account.

How do I trade and evolve Pokémon?

You cannot use 2 digital copies of the game to trade!

You will not be able to log into your account on 2 digital copies at the same time. I needed to purchase an additional physical copy of Let's Go: Pikachu. However, I am able to use a the digital copy of Let's Go: Eevee.

Equipment used:

  • Nintendo Switch x2 (I used an OLED and a lite)
  • Digital copy of Let's Go: Eevee and physical copy of Let's Go: Pikachu


You can do this on local link between both consoles.

On both games, do the following:

  • Go to the main menu and press the communicate icon
  • Press play with others
  • Press "Nearby Player"
  • Press "Link Trade"
  • Click the same 3 Pokémon on the link code page
  • Select the Pokémon you want to offer as a trade
  • Then trade them

If you want to trade the Pokémon back, just follow a subsection of the above steps to trade them back.
