During E3 2018, it was revealed that Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee would be bundled with the Pokeball Plus accessory, and it could be pre-ordered through a number of retailers, such as Best Buy and Amazon. However, the highly-valued bundle was set to retail for $99, yet Amazon had the Pikachu version listed at $50.
This obviously led to a surge in pre-orders of the bundled version of Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu, though those who had the cash to spare and wanted the Eevee version may have still opted for the full-priced version. As Amazon realized its mistake, however, the company began canceling the pre-ordered copies and not charging its customers.
Moreover, it seems that Amazon has also been issuing some customer’s credit for the confusion. Those who accidentally or even knowingly pre-ordered the undervalued edition and want to claim a credit for the matter may attempt to reach out to Amazon, though the time to claim such a promotion may have already passed. It’s worth noting that some Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu bundles were listed at the right price, and those orders have not be canceled.

One reason this bundle is so popular is that the legendary Psychic-type Mew is included with the purchase of a Pokeball Plus, so many may have sought to capitalize on this discounted mistake. Some, on the other hand, may not have noticed or known about the price difference.
Ever since Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee was first announced, many were interested to see how the Pokemon GO-related game would coincide with the Nintendo Switch, and for many more, this Pokeball Plus accessory may be a must-have. Luckily, there’s still time to get a copy before release, so those who have been affected by the Amazon cancellations or those who have yet to pre-order may very well wish to hop on the hype train.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee release on November 16 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
