After recently unveiling the retro-inspired Pac-Man Edition of the popular Switch Split Pad Pro, Hori has revealed a pair of Pokemon-themed pads due for release in time for Christmas. 

Hori is well known in the third-party accessory market for making quality products, and these switch pads have even been given the official Nintendo seal of approval.  

The Hori Switch Split Pad Pro is designed to give a full-size controller experience, perfect for those who find Joy-Cons fiddly and uncomfortable to use. 

The Split Pad Pro has been released in a variety of designs and colours over the last few years, but these two Pokemon offerings have to be the most adorable ones so far.

Switch Split Pad Pro Pokemon Edition features

Offering you larger grips, button, triggers, analogue sticks and a bigger d-pad, this chunky accessory is ideal if you find Joy-Cons too small for your hands during longer play sessions.

Hori hasn’t added Pro to the name for no reason either, the inclusion of assignable rear triggers gives you an extra level of customisation compared to Nintendo’s official controllers.  

The Switch Split Pad Pro has been released in several different designs and colours, but we reckon these Pokemon efforts are among the best versions yet. 

There are two variations to choose from, a pastel Pikachu and Eevee design and a Black & Gold Pikachu version.
