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.


How it works

Poké Ball Plus + Nintendo Switch
Use with Pokémon™: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon™: Let’s Go, Eevee!

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.

Catch Pokémon

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.

Bring Mew along on your adventure!

Every Poké Ball Plus contains your very own Mythical Pokémon Mew, a special Pokémon that cannot be obtained by normal gameplay in any of the main Pokémon series games.

Poké Ball Plus + Smartphone
Use with Pokémon™ GO

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.

To see if your smart device is compatible with Pokémon GO, check out the official website.
