Going on a new Pokémon adventure is great. But what if you could catch a monster with a real-life Poké Ball? With Pokémon Let’s Go and Poké Ball Plus, now you can!

You’re already pumped as heck for Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. It’s the first ever console Pokémon adventure, and more gorgeous than a Shiny Gyarados. The upcoming Switch game will take long-time fans back to the Kanto region, where the whole Pokémon phenomenon began.

But wait, there’s more. This edition of Pokémon Let’s Go comes with the Poké Ball Plus, a handheld recreation of the device used to capture Pocket Monsters. Not only does it look awesome, it actually does what a Poké Ball does. When you come across a wild Pokémon in-game, you can toss your ball towards the screen to capture them. Just like Ash Ketchum does in the opening theme to your favorite childhood anime.

When you have to deal with real-life, you can bring your Pokémon with you. Any Pokémon on your team will happily reside in your Poké Ball, and even interact with you when you’re getting McDonalds or clocking in some overtime at work.

Poké Ball Plus releases on November 16 along with Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. You can pre-order the Poké Ball Plus on Amazon for $49.99. Or, if you prefer, you can pre-order Pokemon Let’s Go + Poke Ball Plus for $99. This sweet deal includes your game version of choice plus the new, beautiful accessory.
