Besides the news of Pokemon Go joining Apple watches, Niantic also made another announcement regarding to the phone app.
Yesterday, Niantic (the company that help create the app) announced that the accessory device Pokemon Go Plus will be released “to the world” on September 16. South America players will also get this but in a later time. The price for it in American dollars is 34.99 and Japanese currency is 3,500 Yen.
Here is what Pokemon GO Plus can do:
The device allows players to capture nearby Pokémon without relying on their phones. Players can wear the accessory in their pockets or wear it as a wristband. The device will flash or vibrate to alert players of any Pokémon in the area. Pressing the white button in the center will toss a Pokéball at the Pokémon. The device will also alert users whenever a Pokéstop is in range; pressing the white button will be the equivalent of spinning the stop for items.
