There’s plenty of merch out there if you want to show your love for Pokémon, but if you want to feel like a Pokémon trainer, you don’t have many options besides hiding in the bushes and capturing passing animals (not recommended).

In 2021, The Wand Company released its first Poké Ball replicas, which look and feel like the real thing — though we can’t stress enough how much you shouldn’t try to capture anything with them.

The 2021 series featured the original Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, Dusk Ball, Premier Ball, and a limited-edition Master Ball. Now, we’re getting a look at the 2022 Poké Ball lineup.

The first Poké Ball to launch in 2022 is the gorgeous Heal Ball.

In the world of Pokémon, Heal Balls will restore any critters you catch in them to full health, making them as useful as they are cute.

In the real world, they’re just cute, but we like to think that’s enough.

Like the first series, the new Poké Ball replicas come with a display case and feature light-up details with proximity and touch sensors.

The Wand Company’s Heal Ball launches in April 2022, with the rest of the line coming later this year. You can currently pre-order the Heal Ball on the Pokémon Center website for $99.99.

They don’t have release dates yet, but the rest of the 2022 series includes the Friend Ball, Quick Ball, and Cherish Ball.

If you’ve got your eye on one of the original set, all of the Wand Company Poké Balls released so far will also return to the Pokémon Center for a limited time later in 2022.
