Pokemon Go Plus is an add-on similar to a wrist watch that links you to the virtual Pokemon world without you using your Smartphone. The device alerts you whenever a Pokemon is close to you among other events happening in the Pokemon world.
The developers came up with the device to reduce the amount of time people spend on their phones so that they truly experience the real world while playing the game. Pokemon Go Plus is quite simple to use and will be a must have for all Pokemon trainers. It will most certainly be a trainer’s new best friend.
How Pokemon Go Plus Works
Pokemon Go Plus links to your phone via Bluetooth. The device is available in a white and red colour pattern, however, you can have the strap customized in your favorite color. To let you know when a Pokemon is nearby, the device will vibrate and a light will flash from the LED at the top.
The device can be worn on the wrist just like a watch or your ordinary bracelet. Alternatively, you can also clip it onto your shirt. If you are not comfortable walking around with it in plain sight and prefer it to be a little more concealed, you can clip it to your jacket’s inside pocket. You can remove the strap all together and carry it in your pocket.
Where to Get Pokemon Go Plus
Pokemon Go Plus can be pre-ordered on GameStop and Amazon. The retail price is around thirty-five dollars but there is a shortage because of the high demand for the devices. The price is expected to go down in the coming weeks once there are enough of them available in the market.
At the moment retailers are currently out of stock. There are still some available on eBay, but unfortunately, it will cost you more than thrice what you would normally pay. You would need at least a hundred dollars to stand a chance to get a Pokemon Go Plus on eBay. You can also wait until they’re in stock again, which should be really soon.
The Advantages of Pokemon Go Plus
You will never miss out on Poke stops and Pokemon if you have Pokemon Go Plus. To receive notifications on what’s going on in the virtual world, the Pokemon Go application needs to be running in the background. Otherwise, you will miss out on Pokemon you could have easily caught.
Running it in the background also uses up a lot of battery power and you won’t get notifications if the application is not active. This is where Pokemon Go Plus comes in handy. The device alerts you by vibrating whenever a Pokemon is in the vicinity. You will be able to catch every one of them.
