Ever since Pokemon Go has been out and welcomed with arms wide open, Pokemon Go Plus is a device that every Pokemon Go trainer wishes and desires!
Pokemon Go Plus is wearable that vibrates and sends off different lights whenever you are approaching a Poke Stop or if there's a Pokemon nearby. With this device, Pokemon Go trainers don't need to have their Pokemon Go app open, they just need to strap it on and connect it to their iOS or Android smartphones.
Just yesterday, September 7, 2016, Niantic posted an official statement about the release of Pokemon Go Plus. The company stated that the device will be available "in much" of the world, next week September 16!
They have been testing out Pokemon Go Plus in a number of days now, Niantic said. They were able to do their normal days with family and friends without having to pull the smartphone to check if there's any Pokemon nearby.
You can now blend Pokemon GO even more seamlessly into family and fitness activities. Now you’ll be able to play and enjoy your walk, run, hike, park trips or visits to the library without having to look at your screen all the time.
Aside from saving precious smartphone battery, the Pokemon Go Plus' key selling point is you can catch precious Pokemon in just 1 press of a button! You can check your phone after or whenever you're available to see what Pokemon you caught. A real Pokemon Go trainer on the go gadget!

Pokemon Go Plus is going to be the most popular accessory there is! I won't be surprised if I'll see Pokemon Go Plus knock offs somewhere with the same bracelet plus a plastic Pokemon Go Plus gadget on top! But I am excited for the release. There have been rumors that it can be yours for just $35!
(For my Filipino Pokemon Go Trainers, get ready to spend a little more because of the tax from customs T__T)
