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.

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.

A Pokemon player made waves on social media after faithfully recreating a Pokemon Center in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Animal Crossing’s latest outing, New Horizons, was the breakout hit of 2020. Since its debut in March, the lovable Nintendo title has taken over social media as players around the world share their unique creations.

One Pokemon fan used the the game’s new editing tools to accurately build a Pokecenter in the social simulation title. Their stunning recreation of the iconic RPG location is one of the best things you will see all week.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Pokemon fans praised the creator’s work, such as one user who exclaimed, “This is so cool!!! You did an amazing job on these.” Another player agreed and wrote, “Wow! I heard the music in my head as soon as I saw the pic! Great Job!”

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
