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 colours, vibrates, and plays sounds. With the Poké Ball Plus, you can also take one of your favourite 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.
- *The Poké Ball Plus will only be compatible with Pokémon Go, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and will not be compatible with any other Nintendo Switch software.
The Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controller can be used in a variety of ways to accommodate one or two players either at home or on the go. At home, the switch will sit in a docking station connected to your television. The two Joy-Con can then be removed, and can be attached to the Joy-Con Shell - which brings them together into the size and shape of a standard controller or held sideways by two separate players for multiplayer games.
