The Wand Company has announced that they have begun pre-orders for the Pokémon Electronic Die-Cast Poké Ball Replica and it's available to purchase from selected retailers worldwide for shipping to you on Pokémon Day, February 27th, 2021.

Product Description

This high quality, accurate Poké Ball is the first officially-licensed premium collectible replica for Pokémon fans.

The Poké Ball’s engineered die cast metal shell has a deeply coloured surface that is sensitive to touch and proximity. With its brightly glowing button and lift-to-display illuminated presentation case, this Poké Ball is the long-awaited collectible for Pokémon fans and the start of an exciting Poké Ball collection.

Equipped with touch and proximity-sensing technology, the Poké Ball’s button glows when it senses motion and glows extra brightly when the ball is touched. Pressing the button starts a Pokémon-catching illumination sequence; double-clicking it changes the light colour from white to red and then green. These display-grade Poké Balls are ideal for collectors: each replica comes with its own presentation case – authenticated by a uniquely-numbered hologram – and a polished stainless steel ring so that you can display your Poké Ball exactly how you’d like to.

Lights in the display case automatically illuminate when it is opened, bathing the Poké Ball in a softly swirling glow. Adjust the colour of the light using the touch-sensitive name plaque on the front of the case to choose one of seven different hues.

Product Details

Quality materials: Display-grade replica with a finely detailed metal shell and a deeply coloured, high-gloss lacquer finish
Engaging: Beautifully brought to life with touch and proximity sensing
Immersive: Brightly glowing button and animated, multicolour case illumination
Display grade: Opening the presentation case lifts the Poké Ball for display
Seriously collectible: The first of a range of premium collectible Poké Balls, each one uniquely numbered and officially licensed by The Pokémon Company International
Hidden accessory: Highly polished stainless steel display ring

Poké Ball Description

This Poké Ball is the most iconic model and typically the first tool a Trainer receives to catch wild Pokémon poke ball on table

The Poké Ball is the hallmark of aspiring Trainers everywhere. This remarkable device is an essential part of a Trainer’s equipment, required first to catch a Pokémon and then as a place for it to reside in comfort when not helping its Trainer on their adventures.

While the advanced mechanics by which a Poké Ball captures and houses a Pokémon are mysterious and unknown to our technology, we know that they are activated by a button on the front of the ball.

What is the Poké Ball made from?
The Poké Ball is made from a mix of materials. The outer shell halves are precision-made die cast zinc which has been polished and then finished with a high-quality lacquer.

The Poké Ball weighs 297 g (10.5 oz).

The name plaque is aluminium and the Poké Ball support cup is made from silicone rubber. The polished metal Display Ring is made from stainless steel.

What does the proximity and touch sensing do?
The Poké Ball’s button light illuminates as your hand approaches the ball. The button light glows brighter as your hand gets nearer. If you touch both halves of the Poké Ball at the same time, the button light glows at its brightest. Please check the Poké Ball manual for further details of the functions and how to change the button light colour and play the catching Pokémon illumination sequence.

Which other versions will you release and when?
The Poké Ball will be released on Pokémon Day, 27th February 2021, then there’ll be a number of other balls released throughout 2021.

Are batteries included?

NEW MYTHICAL POKÉMON DISCOVERED

Dynamax Mewtwo’s Appearance in Max Raid Battles Also Announced

Zarude is a Dark- and Grass-type Pokémon that can grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will. The vines are strong and flexible and are useful for many different situations. They can be used to wrap around tree branches to move around and grab Berries from distant branches, and they even have healing properties.

Name: Zarude
Category: Rogue Monkey Pokémon
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 154.3 lb.
Type: Dark/Grass

This Mythical Pokémon lives in a pack deep in the dense forests of Galar. It treats anyone that isn’t part of its pack with immediate hostility. When fighting, Zarude swings around from tree branches, attacking relentlessly with its sharp claws. Its quick wit helps it excel in battles. Zarude is only available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and can’t be encountered in regular gameplay. Launched in November 2019, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are the latest titles in the core Pokémon video game series and are available on Nintendo Switch™ systems.

It was also announced that from Wednesday, February 26, at 4:00 p.m. PST until Sunday, March 1, at 3:59 p.m. PST, Dynamax Mewtwo may appear in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. While this Mewtwo is incredibly powerful and can’t be caught, Trainers will have a chance to receive rare items like Ability Capsules if they defeat Mewtwo. During the same time period, Trainers can also encounter Dynamax Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, Squirtle, and Wartortle in Max Raid Battles. Unlike Mewtwo, Trainers will have a chance to catch these Pokémon if they manage to defeat them.
