This page explains how to trade from Pokémon Sun to Pokémon Sun.
What You Need
Each player needs a system from the Nintendo 3DS family such as 3DS, 2DS, and New Nintendo 3DS. Additionally, if you want to trade with a player who is far away, your Nintendo 3DS needs to be set up to connect to the Internet.
Before you can trade from Pokémon Sun to Pokémon Sun, you need to visit the Pokémon Center in Hau'oli City Shopping District. Afterward, you can use Quick Link from the X-button menu to trade with nearby players, or use Festival Plaza to trade with players who are far away.
How to Trade
If you want to trade with a player who is far away, make sure both players can connect to the Internet. If you want to trade with a player who is nearby, make sure that both players have wireless turned on.
If trading with a player who is nearby, both players should press X to open the menu, then choose Quick Link. Both players should hold the A button or keep the stylus on the touch screen until you connect.
If trading with a player who is far away, press X to open the menu, then choose Festival Plaza. Tap the Internet button in the bottom-right corner to connect to the Internet. After you are connected, tap Trade, and choose Link Trade. You can choose a player from your Guest List to trade with. Press X if you want to update the Guest List.
