With all the excitement about Smash Bros dominating E3, it would have been easy to forget the upcoming Pokémon games. Reggie gave them a bit of play in the middle of the Direct presentation, announcing that Mew would be exclusive to the Pokéball controller that’s coming out. Details have been pretty slight about them… only the UK has gotten pricing, but based on that, it’s likely to run about $45 to $50 USD.

That being said, I saw this on Best Buy earlier today: a Bundle with Let’s Go games and the Pokéball controller, coming in at $99. Doing the math, that’s $60 for the game, $20 for the controller. If you’re lucky enough to have a Gamers Club Unlimited membership that’s still active (RIP, GCU), the 20% discount applies, bringing it down to $80.

While I tend to bag on pre-orders, there are times when they tend to be a good call… specifically when you expect the item to be in short demand or have a limited production run (in other words, when it’s a non-digital product, like, say, a controller). Nintendo stuff can take forever to restock, so if you want this (and Mew), plan to get your pre-orders in sooner rather than later. Especially since this will likely be one of the hotter titles and systems leading up to Christmas this year…
