Pokemon GO allows you to transfer Pokemon to Professor Willow. This can be useful when your inventory gets full of Pokemon and you need a little more space. Here’s what transferring a Pokemon does, and what you can get from it.
Ultimately, transferring a Pokemon to Professor Willow just means that you’ll no longer have the Pokemon. This doesn’t get you a different Pokemon in return and the Professor doesn’t have his own inventory for you to go ahead and trade back with at a later point, either. Once you transfer a Pokemon over to him, he keeps it forever and lord knows what happens to it.
On the flip side, he does offer you some pretty handy items in return for doing so. Things like Stardust and Candy can be gathered pretty quickly this way, which are helpful for powering up and evolving your Pokemon. If you keep coming across Ratata’s, Pidgey’s or Weedle’s, don’t just ignore them. Take the time to capture them and send them over to the Professor. You may have to use a Pokeball to capture them, but the rewards are worth the trade off.
