The Pokemon Company has revealed their brand new controller for the Nintendo Switch – the Poke Ball Plus!
Apparently it works much like a Joy-Con, with an analog stick in the center of the Poke Ball. The controller will launch alongside Pokemon Let’s Go and Eevee on November 16.
It’s not yet confirmed if it will have the full feature of a joy-con but you will be able to ‘throw’ it to catch pokemon in the Let’s Go games. It will light up, vibrate and emit sounds. It’s also compatible with Pokemon Go and can take the place of the Pokemon Go Plus.
You can also earn special rewards by ‘storing’ Pokemon inside it and taking them with you, pretty damn interactive!
In addition to this news, The Pokemon Company has announced Pokemon Quest, a spin-off game that is out now on Nintendo Switch. The company also confirmed that the Switch Pokemon game teased during Nintendo’s E3 2017 press conference is set to release in the latter half of 2019.
