Pokémon Go Plus wearable hits Australia in September
Nintendo Australia has confirmed that the Pokémon Go Plus wearable will be available locally (and in New Zealand) this September. The app-centric Bluetooth accessory is designed to notify Pokémon Go when they're near either a Pokémon or Pokéstop, without the need to constantly keep their eyes on the phone.
Wearers will also be able to catch critters by clicking the Pokémon Go Plus' button, provided they've already caught that Pokémon before. The Pokémon Go Plus won't let users capture monsters they've yet to actually catch in the game.
The Pokémon Go Plus can be worn as a bracelet, or clipped on to a pocket.
Nintendo has yet to confirm where local customers will be able to the Pokémon Go Plus or how much it will cost. Internationally, the wearable has been priced at USD$34.99 (approximately AUD$47 before GST and "Australia Tax").
