An all-new core Pokemon game is heading to Nintendo Switch in late 2019, but you don’t have to wait that long to catch the lovable critters on Switch. On November 16, 2018, you can get Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, a pair of games designed for newcomers to the franchise and for players who got their start with the mobile game Pokemon Go.

Developed by Game Freak, the makers of the core Pokemon titles, the Let’s Go games aren’t quite what you’re used to. Instead of battling the monsters to catch them, you’ll collect them by tossing Poke Balls at them, just like you do in Pokemon Go. You can even transfer your pocket monsters from Go to Let’s Go via Bluetooth. We also know that the first 150 Pokemon as well as their Alolan forms from Sun and Moon would appear in the Let’s Go titles.

We have a lot more information about these games in our article Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu And Eevee: Everything We Know So Far, so check that out to satisfy your curiosity. But if you’re ready to lock in your pre-order for one (or both) of these games, you’ll probably want to know where to find them, how much they’ll cost, and what–if any–extra goodies you can expect to come with them. We have you covered below.

Currently, there’s only one pre-order bonus available for Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, and it’s retailer-specific. If you buy the game from Pokemon Center (while supplies last), you’ll get a plush keychain featuring the corresponding Pokemon.

This version of the game comes with a Poke Ball Plus accessory bundled in. Poke Ball Plus is basically a variation of a Joy-Con that has a wrist strap on one end and an analog stick on the other. It also contains a motion sensor, so you can “throw” it at Pokemon in the game world.
