Ahead of E3 2018, Nintendo actually announced some new Pokemon games in the form of the new Pokemon: Let's Go series.

Mew comes pre-installed on the PokeBall Plus accessory.

Nintendo also announced a $100 Dollars bundle that includes a copy of either Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee and the Poke Ball Plus.

Another fun thing that Poke Ball plus has: as long as it is connected to your phone and the PoGO app, it will count your steps so you can hatch Eggs and get Candy for the Pokemon you've set as your buddy. Using the device, you can capture Pokemon with a flick of the wrist.

It will be usable with Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!, both of which are now set for a release later this year.

Additionally, the game will feature GO Park, which allows Kanto Pokemon from Pokemon GO to be transferred to Let's Go.

That's right, if you want a Mew then you're going to have to shell out extra.

In addition to being able to trade with other players, Let's Go will let you face off against your friends online or locally in Single and Double Battles. Preorders for the Let's Go Pikachu Poke Ball Plus bundle and Let's Go Eevee bundle are now up on Best Buy.

It was announced on today's Nintendo Direct that the Pokeball Go Plus will come with the 151st Pokemon, Mew, upon launch. We've emailed The Pokemon Company for clarification, and we'll update if we hear back.
