Although the hype has died down, Pokémon Go is not going away anytime soon. There are still tons of players out there still hunting who will be happy to hear that the Pokémon Go Plus will soon be available on the market. Come see what this new offering from Nintendo entails.

The Pokémon Go phenomenon slowed down a bit but there are still plenty of hunters out there picking up Pokémon in backyards, parks and in the city. And now a wearable companion is being released called the Pokémon Go Plus.

This device eliminates the need for the AR or augmented reality feature in Pokémon Go. Normally, to play the game, you need to have your phone out to find Pokémon. But the Pokémon Go Plus alerts you with light or vibration and you can collect the items with just a click of a button.

The device will also track your footsteps even if the app is off, eliminating some problems other users have come across. It's compact and weighs only 13 grams. You can pre-order the Pokémon Go Plus on Nintendo's official site right now. Shipping will start on September 16 but this varies by region.

What do you think of the Pokémon Go Plus? Let us know in the comments.

    Seriously, is pokėmon still a thing? Are people (not kids) still playing this silly waste of time? But more importantly why are you still reporting it?
    This fad is surely over, surely grown people have got back to normal adult life and put this kids game down?
    Please let this be done.

    • Well looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

    • why are you so negative? you got banned when you tried a hack, or something?
      still a lot of young people and adults play it nearly daily. perhaps not as many as 2 months ago, but even if half of the amount from 2 months ago plays, it still means 50-150 million people ;) I'd say that's worth reporting it.
