You really haven't played Pokémon: Let's Go! until you've thrown an actual Poké Ball at your screen to catch Pokémon. It's the nearest you'll ever get to being Ash Ketchum. Thankfully, this discount on the Poké Ball Plus (opens in new tab) controller makes it more affordable than ever to be the very best, like no one ever was, taking $30 off. At $19.99, it's down to its lowest price since its debut, though shipping times are already slipping so you want to lock this price in while you still can.

The Poké Ball Plus works as a fully-fledged controller for Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! (opens in new tab) and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! (opens in new tab) allowing you use it instead of touching the Joy-Cons at all. The best part is using it during a catch sequence where its built-in movement sensors allow you to throw it to entrap Pokémon. Just be sure to use the wrist strap to avoid damaging your TV. You can also transfer your favorite Pokémon to the Poké Ball Plus to take it for a walk and earn rewards. This functionality is also available in Pokémon Sword (opens in new tab) and Pokémon Shield (opens in new tab) that released late last year, too. It's the only way to get Mythical Pokémon Mew as well.

If you're a Pokémon GO player, you can replicate the functions of the Pokémon GO Plus (opens in new tab) with the Poké Ball Plus meaning it will spin Pokéstops and catch Pokémon for you while you're on the move.

The Poké Ball Plus charges via USB-C so you can simply plug it to in when the time comes, though there are also some super cool Poké Ball Plus charging docks if you want something to spend your savings on.
