Delete Gmail Contacts from Phone

So I just got the Pixel XL and in my Contacts app, I see my Gmail contacts with only their email addresses and I am wondering how I can delete or disable this? Or is there a setting to only see the contacts with phone numbers? Thanks again!

In the Contacts app, you will see all of your contacts - that's exactly what it's for. A contact is a contact whether it has a phone number, email address, both, or neither, and all of those show up in the Contacts app. The only way to get them to not show up is to delete the contact from your google account - but then you delete their email address, too. You can go into the Settings (click the hamburger menu up top) and filter based on account if you are signed in to multiple accounts on the phone

In the Phone app, however, you can hide contacts without a phone number, by going into the Settings and enabling the "Hide contacts without numbers" option (or something similar, depending on which version of Android you have). When you view your contacts from the Phone app, then, it will only show those with at least one phone number defined. Pretty sure it also only searches those contacts for suggestions when you start dialing.

from your Contacts, hit the three dots to bring up the menu>Contacts to display> Select "Phone"

That'll change it to whoever you have stored in your phone instead of your Gmail contacts list. Personally, i updated my Gmail contacts list to hold all of my contacts and just created sub groups so i can select which ones i want in my phone (Select "customized list" instead of "phone").
