It's become clear that Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! for the Nintendo Switch are going to be a lot more fun if you also have the Poke Ball Plus controller (it's also compatible with Pokemon Go). It works like a Joy-Con, but it also simulates the feel of physically catching and throwing Pokemon complete with flashing lights and sounds. You can even take your Pokemon out for a stroll in the real world to earn bonuses. Plus, it is the only way that you can add Mew to your PokeDex.

That having been said, if you are definitely going in for the Poke Ball Plus controller you have two options to save a little money. If you're not an Amazon Prime member, the cheapest way to own both the game and the Poke Ball Plus is to get one of the the $100 bundles - a savings of $10 over the individual list price. Amazon has pre-orders for both the Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! Pokeball Plus Bundle, and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! Pokeball Plus Bundle up and running while supplies last. For Prime members, the best option is to pre-order one of the games individually on Amazon with a 20% discount then pick up the Poke Ball Plus controller separately. With the Prime discount, owning the game and the controller will set you back $98.

Hey, two bucks is two bucks - and it's highly unlikely that Amazon will discount any of the bundles between now and the November 16th release date. Either way, you'll be covered with the Amazon pre-order guarantee, so you won't be charged until it ships and you'll get any additional discounts that occur.

You can learn more about what the Poke Ball Plus controller can do via the official description below.

Grab a Pok Ball and begin your journey. Every great Trainer needs a Pok Ball to catch and store their Pokmon. With Pok Ball Plus, you can bring your Pokmon adventure into the real world with an accessory that fits in the palm of your hand.

Use with Pokmon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokmon: Let's Go, Eevee!
Pok Ball Plus works like a Joy-Con controller with the Pokmon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokmon: Let's Go, Eevee! games for Nintendo Switch. Move, battle, navigate menus - you can do it all with your Pok Ball Plus.

Catch Pokmon
Pok Ball Plus has motion control capability, so when a wild Pokmon appears, ready a Pok Ball and try to catch the Pokmon by moving your Pok Ball Plus like you're throwing it.

Lights, sounds, action!
When you catch a Pokmon, your Pok Ball Plus will light up and vibrate in your hand, and you'll hear the Pokmon let out its unique cry - you'll think there's really a Pokmon inside!

Take your Pokmon wherever you go
Take your Pokmon for a stroll in your Pok Ball Plus out in the real world.
When you're out and about, you can gently shake your Pok Ball Plus and the Pokmon inside will make a sound* and the Pok Ball Plus will vibrate.

Use with Pokmon GO
Just like with Pokmon GO Plus, you can use your Pok Ball Plus when playing Pokmon GO** on a compatible smartphone to help you search for Pokmon.

Search for Pokmon without looking at your smartphone
Play Pokmon GO without checking your smartphone screen. When a Pokmon appears nearby, Pok Ball Plus will light up and vibrate. A simple button press lets you throw a virtual Pok Ball, and different LED light patterns will let you know if you've caught the Pokmon.

As long as your Pok Ball Plus is connected to your smartphone and the Pokmon GO app, it will also count your steps so you can hatch Eggs and get Candy for your Buddy Pokmon.

Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! will be released on November 16, 2018.

This is super cool, but for $100 that's pretty crazy. Especially from Nintendo.

This is awesome, I've always loved Pokmon.

Especially Pikachu, however I unfortunately gave up on playing Pokmon games.
