What is Pokemon Go Plus+? How to use, Pre-Order, and more

A brand new Pokemon Go Plus device will hit the stores in the summer of 2023. The second to be released following the mixed receptions for the original in September 2016, the accessory has been remodelled into a hockey puck Pokeball. It still has the franchise-favourite colors of red and white, along with some extra features.

The new Pokemon Go Plus+ device will cost $54.99 in the United States of America after being released on July 14, 2023. A week later, it will be made available in Europe for the cost of £49.99. It is a must-have for players who are looking forward to downloading the Pokemon Sleep app. More on that later.

What is a Pokemon Go Plus Device?

The new version has a ‘Main Button’ and a ‘Top Button’ that are used to interact with the device. The pack includes a USB charging cable but the USB AC adapter is sold separately.

Features in the New Pokemon Go Plus+ Device

For more comfort, Pokemon Go Plus can be clipped into belts or worn as a bracelet. Its features include allowing trainers the option to choose which Pokeball to throw after alerting them about a nearby wild Pokemon via vibration.

Press the Main Button in the center to attempt a catch after choosing the Poke Ball variety. Three red blips indicate that the catch wasn’t successful.

The Pokemon Go Plus+ vibrates and glows blue to alert trainers of nearby Gyms and Pokestops. If the items are successfully collected, the indicator will light up. Auto Spin and Auto Catch features can be activated based on convenience.

The device also keeps track of the owner’s sleep and then transfers the data to the Pokemon Sleep app for rewards, besides using ‘Pikachu lullaby’ as an alarm for the sleep schedules.
