Enter the World of Pokémon™
Take your Pokémon™ journey to the Kanto region with your energetic partner, Pikachu! Become the best Pokémon™ Trainer as you battle other Trainers, Gym Leaders, and the sinister Team Rocket. Catch Pokémon™ in the wild using a gentle throwing motion with either a Joy-Con™ controller or a Poké Ball™ Plus accessory (sold separately), which will light up, vibrate, and make sounds to bring your adventure to life. You can also use button controls in Handheld Mode. Share your adventure with family or friends using a second Joy-Con or Poké Ball™ Plus (sold separately). You can even connect to the Pokémon™ GO app* using a compatible smartphone to bring over Pokémon™ originally discovered in the Kanto region!
- Become a top Pokémon™ Trainer on an adventure with Pikachu!
- Explore the vibrant region of Kanto—home to beloved characters like Brock, Misty, and the nefarious trio Jessie, James, and Meowth!
- See the world in style by customizing Pikachu and your Trainer with a selection of outfits.
- True-to-size wild Pokémon™ roam around in the game—catch them like a real Pokémon™ Trainer by using timing and a well-placed Poké Ball™.

- Go on a stroll with your favorite Pokémon™ in your Poké Ball™ Plus to level them up, and to receive in-game rewards after returning them to the game.
