If you’re holding out for a Pokémon-themed Nintendo Switch, your yellow ship has come in. The Pokémon Company has announced a special Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu (and Let’s Go, Eevee) Nintendo Switch Bundle. It’s arriving in stores on November 16.

The Switch bundle will include yellow and brown Joy-Con controllers, themed after Pikachu and Eevee, the two titular stars of the new Pokémon game. The Switch features Pikachu and Eevee silhouettes on the back. The bundle also includes a digital copy of either Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu OR Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee, as well as one Poké Ball Plus controller.

The Switch Pikachu and Eevee Edition retails for $399.99.

The Pokémon Company also revealed more details about Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. Secret Techniques are special skills used by the titular partner Pokémon to traverse through the world. These are familiar travel abilities such as chopping down trees, surfing on water, and flying from town to town.

The partner Pokémon can also use exclusive moves tied to their relationship with their trainer. Pikachu can use the moves Pika Papow and Splishy Splash, while Eevee can use Veevee Volley, Bouncy Bubble, Buzzy Buzz and Sizzly Slide. Trainers can improve their relationship with their partner Pokémon by petting and playing with them. In handheld mode, you can use the touch screen to interact with them.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee are compatible with Pokémon GO and use a similar capture system. It’s exclusive to Switch, rated E for Everyone, and launching on November 16.
