Poké Ball Plus: THE Must-Have Gadget For Nintendo Switch's Pokémon Let's Go

New Controller for the Nintendo Switch

OK so you already know we are extremely excited about Pokémon and Nintendo's latest announcement and now there has been even more developments.


Alongside the release of the awesome Nintendo Switch's Pokémon: Let's Go series, Pokémon are also set to release the Poké Ball Plus.

So, what's Inside?

Acting as the first ever Nintendo Switch joy-con alternative, the Poké Ball Plus will come complete with a high definition rumble, LED lights and of course a speaker to enable the user to hear noises the Pokémon is making inside. 

In collaboration with Game Freak, Nintendo developed the Poké Ball Plus to allow the user an increasingly authentic game play experience, and there is no denying that this is pretty cool!

With the Poké Ball being so incredibly iconic, every single generation will be able to recognize and appreciate this awesome gaming accessory - and there is no doubt that Nintendo Switch have been extremely clever developing and releasing this addition and the new games simultaneously.
