The Poke Ball Plus is a Poke Ball shaped device that can be used when playing Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee! We discuss how this enhances Pokemon Let’s Go and what features the Poke Ball Plus brings.

Poke Ball Plus Details

The Poke Ball Plus’ primary function is to allow you to catch Pokemon using a Poke Ball as opposed to Nintendo Switch joy-cons. The motion controls within the Poke Ball Plus allow you to throw the ball to catch Pokemon on Pokemon Let’s Go. 

Rather than throwing the Poke Ball Plus it is probably wiser to just flick your wrist however. There is of course a strap which attaches the Poke Ball to your wrist!


Poke Ball Plus Controller

That’s not all, the Poke Ball Plus can be used as a controller to play through the entirety of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee. The button on the Poke Ball can be used to click and can move in different directions to navigate your way through the game.

Pokemon games have come along way from the black and white pixel lines on the original Gameboy to playing in HD with an actual Poke Ball! Pokemon Let’s Go marks the first time a Pokemon RPG can be played in HD.


The Poke Ball Plus can be used as a controller in Pokemon Let’s Go…

Mew Pokemon Let’s Go

All Pokemon trainers want the mythical Pokemon Mew. Well, in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee the only way to get Mew is with the Poke Ball Plus. That’s because Mew is within the Poke Ball Plus! 

Once obtained, you can transfer Mew into Pokemon Let’s Go and use it as a member of your Pokemon squad. The 151st Pokemon, Mew, can only be obtained via the Poke Ball Plus making it your one and only way to capture them all!

Mew is available in Pokemon Let’s Go only with the Poke Ball Plus…

Pokemon Go Poke Ball Plus

Not only does the Poke Ball Plus affect the way you play Pokemon Let’s Go but it also affects Pokemon Go! Spinning all those photo discs at Pokestops and gyms can get repetitive. 


Well, the Poke Ball Plus does all that automatically every time you go past a Pokestop or gym when it is connected to Pokemon Go!

Poke Ball Plus Pre Order

The Poke Ball Plus will be released at the same time as Pokemon Let’s Go, November 16. Some retailers already have it listed as unavailable but if you can find it, the price is around $60.
