The Pokemon Company and The Wand Company are releasing a series of official Poke Ball replicas. The two companies announced a series of Die-Cast Poke Ball replicas, with plans to release replicas of the Poke Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, and Premier Ball starting in 2021. Each Poke Ball is made of metal and has a premium painted finish.
The replica Poke Balls come with proximity-sensing technology, causing the Poke Ball button to glow when it senses motion. Additionally, pressing the button will change the light color of the Poke Ball or start a Pokemon-catching illumination sequence. Each ball will also come with a special presentation case complete with a numbered hologram for authentication and multi-colored lights that shine whenever someone opens the display case. You can check out the announcement video above.

The Poke Ball replica costs $99.99, and contains a glass case, a stainless steel display ring, and a battery pack.
The Poke Ball replica is now eligible for pre-order on Zaavi and the listing is live here on Amazon (it does not seem to have been allowed at the time of writing-which is expected to improve soon)
