NEW GUIDE: Pokémon Macro Ball for Nintendo Switch #Hacks #AdafruitLearningSystem @Adafruit

Check out this new guide from John Park, the Pokémon Macro Ball for Nintendo Switch

Ever get tired of spinning your JoyCon thumbstick endlessly to evolve Milcery into Alcremie in Pokémon Sword and Shield? Or get bored riding your Rotom bike in circles to speed up egg hatching? You can create a special Pokéball that is a programmable macro controller for your Nintendo Switch that’ll do it for you!

Anything from a simple turbo button mode to a complex macro with multiple buttons and precise timing is possible, thanks to a Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040 microcontroller (or our own KB2040 Kee Boar) and the excellent GP2040-CE firmware.

You’ll create your specific macro with the simple web-based editor, and trigger the action just by plugging the Pokéball into the Switch!

– The guide provides instructions on how to create a programmable macro controller for Nintendo Switch, housed in a Pokéball, to automate repetitive tasks in Pokémon games
– The guide explains how to use the GP2040-CE firmware to create a macro with the web-based editor and trigger the action by plugging the Pokéball into the Switch
– The guide also provides detailed steps on how to configure the controller settings, test the controller on the Nintendo Switch, and house the device in a Pokéball
