The Wii U Pro Controller.

The Wii U Pro Controller is a controller of the Wii U that can only be used in the Battle Dojo mode in Splatoon.

Description

The Wii U Pro Controller is an optional accessory for the Wii U that serves as an alternative to the Wii U GamePad. It replaces the Wii Classic Controller Pro, and was replaced by the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. It has the same overall button layout as the Wii U GamePad, in a more traditional controller layout, however it lacks motion control sensors, camera, NFC Pad, headphone jack and touchscreen.

Battle Dojo

In the Battle Dojo, one player can use the Wii U Pro Controller to play on the TV, to pop as many balloons as they can, against their opponent, using the Wii U GamePad. This is the only functionality available for this controller in Splatoon.

Pro Controller + Wii Remote Combo
  • Multiple Pro Controllers and a Wii U GamePad can be seen inside the Battle Dojo hanging on the wall. There are three white controllers,a black controller and a white GamePad on the left side and two black controllers on the right side.
  • Battle Dojo matches can also be played with a combination of Wii U Pro Controller and a Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote with a Wii MotionPlus accessory, which was hinted at in the 26th Sunken Scroll. (pictured below) This allows the player using the Wii U Pro controller to have motion controls. To perform this, the player must hold down on the Button1 DPad.png, hold down Button1 B.png, and press Button1 ZL.png and Button1 ZR.png as described on the Splatoon Tumblr, Live from Squid Research Lab.
