Poke Ball Plus Comes With an Exclusive Pre-Caught Mew for Pokemon Let's Go

Now you can be the very best as soon as you take the game out of the box.

News by Nadia Oxford, .

Hey, Pokémon trainers. If you buy the Poké Ball Plus controller accessory releasing alongside Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee for the Nintendo Switch this Fall, you'll receive the legendary 151st Pokémon: Mew.

Mew, the pale pink psychic Pokémon, comes pre-stuffed into the Poké Ball controller. When you free her, she enters your Pokémon Let's Go game. This is the only way to bring Mew into Let's Go: You can't transfer her from Pokémon Go to Pokémon Let's Go (though you can transfer every other Kanto Pokémon from Go into Let's Go), and you're definitely not going to find her under that truck parked near the SS Anne. Stop spamming "STRENGTH."

[Muffled cries for help]

The Poké Ball accessory can be purchased separately from Pokémon Let's Go, or it can be bought as part of a bundle. In either case, you'll only find Mew inside the ball for a limited amount of time. Hey, if you were one of the most powerful Pokémon ever born, would you let yourself be contained in a ball forever?

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee come to the Nintendo Switch on November 16. Our guide to Pokémon Let's Go contains everything you need to know about this unique adventure.

    I'm always torn when they offer free strong Pokémon for you to start with, since it tends to make the game much easier. Then again, I've played through Kanto so many times and this entry's difficulty will likely be beginner-friendly, so... maybe I should just chill and enjoy a casual stroll through Kanto and not worry about difficulty.

    Also, kids today don't know how easy they've got it with this pre-caught Mew. I remember trekking to Toys 'R Us to stand in line for the chance to hook up game link cables with the poor employees they made sit there for hours transferring Mew to all of us. New mission, Game Freak: challenge today's youth. They need it ;-)
