In Pokémon go, players have the option of transferring Pokémon to the Professor. This option can be accessed by following the steps below:
#1. Select Pokémon in your Main Menu.
#2. Select the individual Pokémon you would like to transfer.
#3. Select the Dropdown list and Transfer will be an option.
#4. Select Transfer and the following message will then appear: "You can't take it back after it's transferred to the Professor. Do you really want to transfer "Pokémon Name" to the Professor?
Selecting 'Yes' will result in the following:
#1. Your Transferred Pokémon will be gone forever.
#2. You will receive +1 Candy for the Pokémon you have Transferred.
This feature is useful for getting rid of Pokémon you have a lot of (Eg. Pidgeys), especially because each player can only hold a limited number of Pokémon at any given time.
