Today, the Pokémon Business has actually revealed that it is partnering with Nintendo and Alphabet-owned Niantic to produce a new upcoming mobile video game called Pokémon Go. This title will be available on both iOS and Android devices totally free. The main focus of the video game is collecting, training and fighting Pokémon characters versus other users based on their GPS place.

However, this new experience will certainly be supplemented by an optional wearable. Imagine a Pokémon smart watch of sorts.

This brand-new wearable is called Pokémon Go Plus. It links to your smartphone via Bluetooth and flashes its integrated LED light to inform you of nearby players in addition to virtual Pokémon you can capture. For example, say you’re on your early morning commute on the subway. Pokémon Go Pluswill ping your wrist to let you know that a virtual Charizard is carefully situated. After capturing, you’ll have the ability to train and battle with that new character.


The wearable isn’t really required to play the video game but it is a distinct add-on that bring another level to the experience. Make sure to look into the video above for a graph of how video game play works. Pokémon Go will be launched on iOS and Android in 2016 as a free download with in-app purchases. Prices has yet to be launched for the Pokémon Go Plus Wearable. The whole interview and announcement has been submitted to YouTube for viewing, also.
