Pokémon GO Plus, the accessory created to accompany Pokémon GO, has a new release date, and will be available sooner than you think, because on September 16 it will be released, according to information by Nintendo via Twitter.
Thus, Niantic said in a recent post that Pokémon GO Plus will arrive on September 16 in “most countries”, except for some areas of South America, where it will be available later this year.
According to Niantic, the companion device is connected to the smartphones via Bluetooth and allows you to “keep your phone in your pocket and go about your day-to-day activities while still being able to collect valuable resources and capture even the most elusive Pokémon.”
To be more clear, the device will vibrate and it will illuminate when you are passing near a PokéStop and then you can click on the the center of it to collect various items. Likewise, it will warn you when a Pokémon is nearby and then you can capture it by pressing the same button.
This is not the only recent news related to the popular title of augmented reality, because during the Apple event, Nintendo commented that Pokémon GO will come to Apple Watch, with characteristics similar to Pokémon GO Plus, so it is not necessary to constantly use the phone.
Originally, Pokémon GO Plus planned to debut in July, but had to be delayed by Niantic to provide sufficient quality to meet the players.
