Pokémon Go Plus accessory won't arrive until September

Nintendo UK has announced that the Pokémon Go Plus accessory won't be arriving until September. The company confirmed the delay in a Twitter response, thanking trainers for their patience. The small device can be deployed by players for $34.99 to help them detect and catch Pokémon.

The accessory aids players in slinging Pokéballs at virtual Pokémon as they head out the front door and explore their surroundings.

The device itself connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth, which should help those playing to be alert when creatures are near without having to pull out their phone every few seconds to check.

  • I feel like that's too late and can't help but wonder if people will still be playing. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • People will definitely still be playing (not to mention there's updates coming along the way), but this "accessory" is a complete gimmick
  • Missed opportunity for big sales, will probably still sell well enough but the hype will have died down quite a bit.
  • Should be a feature for the Apple Watch. That would be great. Sent from the iMore App
