Alongside Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee, Nintendo will release Poke Ball Plus. Both games can be played entirely with the accessory alone. You’ll get the same functionality as you would from a standard controller, and perhaps a bit more.

According to Pokemon: Let’s Go producer Junichi Masuda, who appeared during a play session event in Japan, the Poke Ball Plus’ is superior to that of the Joy-Con – HD Rumble and all. This is due to what’s included inside the device, allowing for stronger vibration.

You’ll be able to pick up the Poke Ball Plus when Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee launch on November 16.
