Pokemon Let’s Go will be the first core Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo added tons of new features that many Pokemon fans both new and old will surely love. Check out the things we got to try from the event about the game:

Gotta cacth ‘em all with Pokeball plus – The Pokeball Plus is a pokeball shaped controller that doubles as the joycon, and will feature motion control when you are trying to catch cute critters.
- The Pokeball Plus will also contain a Pokemon of your own choosing, which means you can take your favorite Pokemon with you.
