Hori’s Split-Pad Pros – basically replacement Joy-Cons for the Nintendo Switch – have been redesigned with a cool new series of Pokemon aesthetics, and they’re currently available for pre-order right now.
Split Pad Pros are licensed Joy-Cons for the Switch built to be more comfortable to hold and reminiscent of a regular game controller, similar to the Switch Pro Controller, but split in half to function like the Joy-Cons do, slotting them into the sides of the Switch itself.
