Grab a Poké Ball and begin your journey. Every great Trainer needs a Poké Ball to catch and store their Pokémon. With Poké Ball Plus, you can bring your Pokémon adventure into the real world with an accessory that fits in the palm of your hand.
Poké Ball Plus works like a Joy-Con controller with the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games for Nintendo Switch. Move, battle, navigate menus—you can do it all with your Poké Ball Plus.
Poké Ball Plus has motion control capability, so when a wild Pokémon appears, ready a Poké Ball and try to catch the Pokémon by moving your Poké Ball Plus like you’re throwing it.
Lights, sounds, action!
When you catch a Pokémon, your Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate in your hand, and you’ll hear the Pokémon let out its unique cry—you’ll think there’s really a Pokémon inside!
Take your Pokémon wherever you go!
Take your Pokémon for a stroll in your Poké Ball Plus out in the real world. When you’re out and about, you can gently shake your Poké Ball Plus and the Pokémon inside will make a sound* and the Poké Ball Plus will vibrate.
Just like with Pokémon GO Plus, you can use your Poké Ball Plus when playing Pokémon GO** on a compatible smartphone to help you search for Pokémon.
Search for Pokémon without looking at your smartphone
Play Pokémon GO without checking your smartphone screen. When a Pokémon appears nearby, Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate. A simple button press lets you throw a virtual Poké Ball, and different LED light patterns will let you know if you’ve caught the Pokémon.
As long as your Poké Ball Plus is connected to your smartphone and the Pokémon GO app, it will also count your steps so you can hatch Eggs and get Candy for your Buddy Pokémon.
