Nintendo was in full Pokemon mode last night when it was announced not one, but three new Pokemon games all heading to Switch. The first is the free-to-start Pokemon Quest, which you can already play on and switch to Android and iOS in late June. But the more interesting announcement is a pair of Switch-exclusive titles called Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Lets' Go, Eevee!
The Pokemon: Let's Go titles Pokemon games. What's more, they can be controlled with a real Poke Ball instead of Nunchuk.
As Polygon explains, Pokemon: Let's Go on Pokemon Yellow released back in 1998/9. It will contain the original 151 Pokemon along with some Alolan variants taken from Pokemon Sun and Moon. The big difference comes from Nintendo deciding to go down the Pokemon. Go track and embracing its capture. The battles look like Pokemon Go battles, albeit using some nice, new, crisp graphics, suitable for a Pokemon between Pokemon Go and Let's Play.
Nintendo is encouraging family members to play together , which sees the second Nunchuk. However, we should still expect a story arc, gym, and trainer battles. This is, after all, a game. Nintendo intends to charge full price for on release.

It weighs 65 grams, includes a 220mAh rechargeable battery, accelerometer, gyro sensor, and can emit audio, vibrations, and lights up. It's a drop-in replacement for a Nunchuk when playing Pokemon: Let's Go, but comes with the added bonus of simulating a real Pokemon capture. Shaking the Poke Ball gently will make the Pokemon inside emit sounds and vibrate as if it's reacting and trying to get out. We do not know the price yet, but the battery life is a quite poor three hours.
The Poke Ball Plus is also compatible with Pokemon Go. It allows you to leave your phone in the pocket and instead of the Poke ball will light up and vibrate when a Pokemon appears nearby. Poke Ball and then wait to see if you were successful. A different light pattern on the ball will inform you either way. The Poke Ball Plus is a step-by-step, which feeds back into the Pokemon Go to the Pokemon game, and if you're determined to wait for a “real” Pokemon game on Switch , then that is happening and not until some point in 2019. We've got plenty of Pokemon to enjoy until then, even if it means picking up a 3DS and a copy of the Ultra Moon or Ultra Sun.
