It will act as a JoyCon allowing players to control the game, and it will also transfer Pokémon to it to allow trainers to carry their favorite Pocket Monsters around with them. The Pokéball Pro will retail at $50.
And finally, to those who are itching for a regular Pokémon game, The official Pokémon Twitter has stated that the game announced at last year’s E3 is still coming but will be released in the second half of 2019.
