Poke Ball Plus Will Include Rare Pokemon Mew

Poke Ball Plus Will Include Rare Pokemon Mew

Pokemon director, producer, and composer Junichi Masuda shared new details about Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee during Nintendo's Treehouse Live stream today at E3 2018.

The new controller has more than one function.

It will be usable with Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!, both of which are now set for a release later this year.

For those who need a bit of a refresher, the Poke Ball Plus is essentially an improved version of the PokeWalker accessory that shipped with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver back in the day. It's basically a Joy-Con shaped like a Poke Ball, and you can use it to play the entire game thanks to its built in joystick, accelerometer and more.

Pompeo: US hopes for 'major' North Korea nuclear disarmament by 2020
As a fully paid-up member of the Fraternal Order of Very Serious Foreign Policy Folks, I know I have to opine about this event. North Korea's state-run media on Wednesday reported in detail about what Kim and Trump discussed and agreed on in Singapore .

Nintendo also announced a $100 Dollars bundle that includes a copy of either Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee and the Poke Ball Plus.

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. Depending on your stance, the angle you throw the Poke Ball and how quickly the Pokemon is moving, it may take several attempts to catch some creatures.

It sounds like this will be the only way to get Mew in Pokemon Let's Go as well. The captured Pokemon can then be taken with players on the go and interacted with through hand motions.

PokeBall Plus will also work with Pokemon GO and will be sold seperatley from the games. The Poke Ball Plus can be purchased on its own or in a bundle deal with a copy of the game.
