    Old Phones Won't Connect

    Just thought I'd let people know, older or cheaper phones won't be able to connect to the Switch, so transferring Pokémon and catching Meltan become nigh impossible unless a friend is willing to help you. It's the only big disappointment I've had about the game so far, because nothing was said about this beforehand and I've been locked out of a feature of the game. :'(

    Not that I know of (or a list of compatible phones for that matter), apparently it's something to do with the type of Bluetooth though; apparently there's different versions of it, and the Switch is only compatible with the most recent one. :(

    It appears the Switch supports Bluetooth 4.1, which was released in December 2013. If your phone was made before then, I guess it won't work, although there's still a chance it won't work if your phone was made after December 2013.

    I'd recommend everyone check their phone specs, then. To be fair though, it's more of the Switch's fault then Let's Go's.
