When Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! was released last November, a themed accessory line followed. Nintendo even launched a special edition Switch with appropriately-matched Joy-Cons. One thing the Japanese company did not add to this accessory line-up was a themed Pro Controller. This was presumably because the new entries in the Game Freak developed series are not compatible with this control method.
If you were still hoping for a Let’s Go Switch Pro Controller, third-party accessory manufacturer ShellPlus has released a replacement shell for your existing game pad over on Amazon. Instructions to replace the old shell with the new one are included, but you’ll also need to have the right Philips head screwdriver.
As can be seen in the above and below images, the controller draws inspiration from the themed Joy-Con – with one side of the leather grip yellow and the other side of it brown. There are also red, yellow, green and blue buttons included with the shell and a Pikachu and Poké Ball pattern on the front and back of the casing.
Customer reviews so far state how the shell feels both comfortable and durable, but many have also pointed out the fact that this still doesn’t make the Switch Pro Controller anymore compatible with the latest Pokémon games.
Would you be interested in this themed-shell, even if the Pro Controller isn’t compatible with the Let’s Go? Are you disappointed Nintendo didn’t add Pro Controller support to these games? Tell us in the comments.
