The Poke Ball Plus that launched with Pokemon Let’s Go is going to be supported with the new Pokemon games! You’ll be able to use it to take a walk with your Pokemon, like the Pokewalker!
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use it as a controller like in Pokemon Let’s Go. Fortunately though, this would most likely allow for Pro Controller support in this game!
They also confirmed that there’ll be a water-type gym leader, which we can assume is the second gym leader named Nessa.
Stay tuned for more news about Pokemon Sword and Shield and Nintendo in general!
