Yesterday, through Twitter, Niantic reported that the version of Pokémon GO for Apple Watch is coming soon, so they have called fans to stay tuned.
Niantic continues to work on a Pokémon GO app for the Apple Watch and has also increased the number of Pokémon in rural areas.
Niantic’s announcement is related to a rumor that emerged yesterday by the site 9to5Mac, which suggested that Pokémon GO will not come to Apple Watch, as the development was canceled. Fortunately, the studio calmed the situation immediately and made it clear that the virtual reality title will still hit the smartwatch of Apple.
Pokémon Go for Apple Watch is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Pokémon GO for Apple Watch was announced in September, and we know that this version allows you to play without using the iPhone screen, it will send notifications when a Pokémon, PokéStop or gym is nearby. It will also provide other data, such as how much walking is missing for an egg to hatch.
At that time, Niantic announced that this version would be available before the end of the year, and taking into account recent statements from Nintendo, it may arrive in the coming weeks.
But there is also good news for all players who live in a rather rural area. Niantic has increased the number of Pokémon in these areas. Niantic is obviously trying to keep the remaining players in a good mood and win a few old players back.
Trainers, we’ve observed increased numbers of Pokémon sightings in parks and other outdoor locations in urban and rural areas.
