Coop Throw Pokeball for Higher Capture Chance

Pokemon Let

With the Switch, it's possible for two people to work together to capture the Pokemon at the same time! Throwing the balls together in sync will greatly raise your chances of catching the Pokemon!

Dual Wield Switch Controllers to Perform Coop Captures

Players can also do the Coop Capture together if they want. It's as simple as holding one of each Switch controller in one hand and timing the flick of the controllers when throwing the Pokeball.

Coop Captures Use Twice the Pokeballs

The drawback to using the Coop to capture Pokemon is that you also use twice as many Pokeball than you usually do. This can easily burn through your supply of Pokeballs if you're not careful.

Use Items to Make Catching Pokemon Easier
