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

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.

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.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
