Pokémon Go Plus Finally To Be Released

Pokémon Go Plus Finally Releasing Next Week

Nintendo announced Thursday, That the Pokémon Go Plus will launch September 16th. The device connects via Bluetooth to your compatible device. The LED lights will flash when a Pokémon is near, and lets the player catch the Pokémon without having to open the app up on your device.

No price was mentioned Thursday, but Nintendo mentioned back at E3 in June that the device would cost 35 dollars. This announcement comes shortly after the big Apple Watch announcement. I am excited to try it. 35 dollars is a lot cheaper then the Apple Watch. However with all the features the apple watch had for the app, it got me hopeful that maybe an android version will come out on an android watches. Some android watches retail for half the cost of the apple watch.

Would anyone be interested in seeing us review the Pokémon Go Plus? I plan to be picking one up to try myself.

Pokémon Go Coming To Apple Watch

Photo: Apple

Niantic Labs announced today at Apple’s event, that Pokémon Go will soon be available on the Apple Watch. Cool features on the watch app will include; telling players how far they will have to walk to hatch an egg. Required experience points till the next level, and additional information about the player’s fitness. The Apple Watch app will also let players see when a Pokémon appears, and when a Pokéstop is nearby, without looking at their smartphones. Pokémon Go is set to be released on the Apple Watch sometime this year.

This announcement leaves me with some questions. Could the Apple Watch app replace any need for the Pokémon go plus? (If it ever hits shelves.) Will Niantic release the app on android watches? As an android user, this could convince me to invest in an apple watch. Being able to not constantly be looking at my phone while walking, and playing Pokémon Go would be a big plus. Let us know what you think of the announcement. Would you use it? Does it make you consider buying an Apple Watch?  Do you think the app will come to android watches? I guess we will have to wait and see how good the Pokemon Go Plus does at the much smaller price.
