Found 6th Jun
Seems to be £5 cheaper from amazon than anywhere else.

Plus amazons pre-order price promise etc. Also amazon don’t take money till dispatch.

Apologies if already posted, i know £44.99 for this but its Pokémon after all

See, it's working already
£45 for one analogue stick?

They could have easily made this just a £10 plastic shell for a joycon to go inside it with one of the buttons poking out.

Oh dear, please stop Nintendo, I dont understand.

Pokemon is owned by the Pokemon company (50:50 JV with Nintendo and Game Freak). Nintendo don’t actually own Pokemon. People forget Nintendo didn’t invent Pokemon.....
Also it’s a choice, this add on isn’t needed to play the game. It makes the experience slightly better (maybe?).

I like the idea but can’t see the value it adds?

Now you can get them for around £20. Classic Nintendo fake shortages.
Jesus, it's still a ripoff

It does do a few other (super gimmicky) things tbf. It has motion sensors so you can 'throw' the pokeball to catch Pokémon and it will then light up etc (presumably in sync with the catching process in the game). It'll also make noises and vibrate and stuff if you 'put a Pokémon in it' and walk about with it - I gather separate from the switch.

Does it add much value to the experience? Up for debate (I'd argue not), but it is more than just one analogue stick.

Yes
Why is this up for preorder on Amazon but the actual games aren't?
Chances are this will be harder to get a hold of (at retail price) after release than the actual game so just pre ordering this and hoping to grab the game either a bit cheaper elsewhere or after release and yes it is a bit gimmicky but I'll enjoy it at least...although explaining to my colleagues why Pikachu noises are coming out of my bag, is going to be interesting

They need to do this to survive the wiiu almost ended them and now the current switch hardware is hacked it's going to cause them issues.

If you use the drop down on the amazon page it says Pikachu and Eevee, isn't that the game?

Don't forget to say "I choose you!" As your opening line.
It's a lovely idea, but at the current price it's not for me.
As quoted on the link:

"Please note: be aware of your surroundings while playing and attach the wrist strap included with the product to avoid injury or damage."

- yes, from people beating you up for looking so ridiculous!

Because people like you have that mentality! I am a Pokemon fan but am not going to be buying this over priced gimmick. The statement is still nonsense, you're essentially saying that because it's Pokemon they can do what they want. Its the way you're accepting the fact that, oh well it's pokemon they can do what they want. As gamers we should not be tolerating the attitude they can put whatever price they want on things, same as loot boxes. None of these benefit the gamer/consumer, the price points are far to high for the actual product/service.

Dam people of you don't like the price don't buy it! This is the price of gaming now your not being ripped off. You don't even need this to play the game. You can't have all the extra stuff without paying the extra price

That's not why they have done it. The Switch is doing incredibly well and the 'hacking' is yet to yield anything threatening. So what you're saying though is that because some people may pirate some games they are then going to put out over priced products to mitigate these, at the moment, theoretical losses thus making the honest loyal people compensate them Nintendo. Its a money grab.

It's the price of gaming because people accept it and buy the products. If people stopped buying things that were over priced they would have to change their tune. Just look at what happened with EA/Disney/Star wars

Exactly and then they can place it next to their £10 plastic joycons steering wheels.

It hardly almost ended them. They have insane amounts of reserves and the 3DS was/is still doing incredibly well. It'd take a lot more than a single failure to collapse them.

And with all the shady DLC practices we've got going on at the moment, microtansactions, loot boxes, pre-order content and overpriced collectors editions, I hardly think a gimmicky controller is something to be offended by. It will likely function in future Pokemon games, works with Go and has cute play functions. Build quality should be decent from Nintendo too and you're not being forced to use it.

Plus we'll get to watch lots of videos of people playing through complex games using only this one button controller!

Okay buddy get a grip pal, no one is asking you to buy it and if you cant afford it don’t buy it.

Do you have nothing better to do than try insult people on the internet You don’t need this to play the actual game so don’t worry yourself about other peoples spending

End of day i have pre ordered because i want one simple as that this is currently the best price from a decent retailer.

That's BS do you have any idea what goes into making games these days? And in all fairness the price of games hasn't gone up since the mega drive and snes days. I remember paying £40 for a 6 button MD pad for street fighter turbo

It’s not the same though to be fair, it’s a bit of plastic on a string.
