E3 2018: Every Poke Ball Plus Comes With Legendary Pokemon Mew

Adjust Comment Print

The mythical Pokemon Mew will come exclusive with every Poke Ball Plus accessory, and can join players on their adventure in Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee, Nintendo announced during the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct.

The new controller has more than one function.

Mew comes pre-installed on the PokeBall Plus accessory.

It's official! The first deep dive into the world on the Nintendo Switch has a release date, and that date is November 16.

Interested parties can pick up the accessory in a Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu or Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee bundle for $99.99 or the regional equivalent.

For those unfamiliar, the Poke Ball Plus is an accessory that has been created to look like a Poke Ball. When playing in handheld mode, however, you'll have to use the gyroscopic controls within the Switch console to perfectly line up your Poke Ball to successfully catch the Pokemon.

You can play Pokemon GO without actually checking your phone.

Masuda also revealed that your partner Pokemon, which follows you outside its Poke Ball as you traverse the world, will wag its tail when an item is nearby. Preorders for the Let's Go Pikachu Poke Ball Plus bundle and Let's Go Eevee bundle are now up on Best Buy. Thus far, Nintendo has suggested that transfers are a one-way street, meaning that you'll only be able to move monsters from Pokemon GO to Let's Go and not the other way around. We've emailed The Pokemon Company for clarification, and we'll update if we hear back.
