Unboxing Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! with Pokeball Plus

Hi everyone,

In this post, I’ll be showing you the content of the Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! Nintendo Switch game with the Pokeball Plus adapter. Let’s Start!

Here’s the game in the box I received from Amazon:

And here’s the game box outside of the Amazon box:

Let’s take a look at the sides:

And the back:

Here’s the contents once we open the box:

Let’s start showing you the game. Here’s the actual game box:

And the back:

Once we open it, we can see the Kanto map. It simply looks beautiful and amazing! We can also see the game cart.

A closer look at the game cart:

Now, let’s take a look at the Pokeball Plus accessory. It’s the only thing left in the

And bottom:

When we open the box, we will first see a USB-A to USB-C cable to charge our Pokeball

Followed by the user manual:

Next we have the Pokeball adapter in a nice bubble wrap:

After taking the bubble wrap off, we can see the Pokeball. It looks and I suppose, feels like a real Pokeball. After all, The Pokémon Company knows how a real Pokeball feels:

We see the analog stick which is also a button (A) when it’s pressed. The Button B is at the top:

We have a solid white color at the bottom:

At the back, we have a cover which covers the USB-C port that allows us to charge it:

Here, I have unwrapped the USB-C cable:

And now, some catching fun! The Pokémon catching mechanism actually works really nice. You select the “Get ready” option and then you throw the Pokeball gently. This is what makes the Pokeball so special. It adds a lot of value to the gameplay. Catching Pokémon with it, feeling the rumbles and hearing the Pokémon cries makes this a great catching experience.

Here, I’ve thrown the Pokeball to catch a wild Pokémon:

It has a nice LED that glows different colors. When we are catching a Pokémon, it glows yellow while the Pokéball rumbles:

When we catch the Pokémon, it glows green, followed by the Pokémon cry:

If we fail to catch a Pokémon, it will turn red. However, in this case I caught it so it turned green.

The game is really nice in my opinion. I like the graphics and the orchestrated music. Also, as I mentioned, the Pokéball Plus controller adds a sense of realism to the game. I’m still playing it and I’ll share with you my gameplay videos which I’m streaming on YouTube soon.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
