The Pokeball Plus is the fancy new controller that can be acquired in the premium editions of Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee / Pikachu, or bought separately. As Let’s Go can be played with one joy-con, the Pokeball is a fine replacement and can be used for the entirety of the game.
When you first crack open Pokemon Let’s Go, you are given the options for which controller setup you would like to use. Alternatively, this can be accessed in the Controller Settings menu at any time in the game. Hit any button on the Pokeball Plus controller to select it as your preferred method, and you’re in business.
You may have noticed the Pokeball Plus has fewer buttons than a standard joycon.
Luckily, with the built-in gyro feature, shaking the Pokeball also works as pressing X. Though, it may be a little bit easier to use a joycon when trying to manage your boxes, for ease.
Mew is one of the special benefits of having a Pokeball Plus controller and is currently the only way to acquire her.
On Pokemon Let’s Go, head to the Communicate option in the menu, and then Mystery Gifts.
Select the “Get with Poke Ball Plus” option, and you’ll receive your very own Mew!
