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.

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 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?
