Description

    Bundle includes Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! game with one Poké Ball Plus controller.


    Return to the Kanto region and experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! These two titles were created by GAME FREAK, the developers of the Pokémon core RPG titles. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! introduce a new play style that anyone can enjoy, combined with the fun of collecting Pokémon.

    Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are based on Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, which first launched in Japan in 1998. These updated versions have been reimagined to make the most of the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch. The games also capture the fun of Pokémon GO and its intuitive Pokémon-catching mechanic.


    Catch Pokémon Like Never Before!

    The Poké Ball Plus is a Poké Ball-shaped device that can be used to play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! in place of your Joy-Con. You’ll be able to throw Poké Balls in-game with a flick of your wrist! In addition to motion controls, the device lights up with a variety of colors, vibrates, and plays sounds.

    With the Poké Ball Plus, you can also take one of your favorite Pokémon from these games for a stroll as you go about your daily life in the real world. The Poké Ball Plus even works as a Pokémon GO Plus when playing Pokémon GO.

    Use with Pokémon™: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon™: Let’s Go, Eevee!

    Catch Pokémon

    Poké Ball Plus has motion control capability, so when a wild Pokémon appears, ready a Poké Ball and try to catch the Pokémon by moving your Poké Ball Plus like you’re throwing it.

    Lights, sounds, action!

    When you catch a Pokémon, your Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate in your hand, and you’ll hear the Pokémon let out its unique cry—you’ll think there’s really a Pokémon inside!

    Take your Pokémon wherever you go

    Take your Pokémon for a stroll in your Poké Ball Plus out in the real world.

    When you’re out and about, you can gently shake your Poké Ball Plus and the Pokémon inside will make a sound* and the Poké Ball Plus will vibrate.

    Use with Pokémon™ GO

    Search for Pokémon without looking at your smartphone

    Just like with Pokémon GO Plus, you can use your Poké Ball Plus when playing Pokémon GO** on a compatible smartphone to help you search for Pokémon.

    Play Pokémon GO without checking your smartphone screen. When a Pokémon appears nearby, Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate. A simple button press lets you throw a virtual Poké Ball, and different LED light patterns will let you know if you’ve caught the Pokémon.

    As long as your Poké Ball Plus is connected to your smartphone and the Pokémon GO app, it will also count your steps so you can hatch Eggs and get Candy for your Buddy Pokémon.


    *The Pokémon sounds can be muted.
    **Using as a Pokémon GO Plus requires installation of the Pokémon GO application on a compatible smartphone. See pokemongo.com for details.
