Niantic has announced that players of Pokémon GO will soon be able to pair the Pokémon GO Plus + to automatically throw Poké Balls at wild Pokémon, and automatically spin PokéStops to get items. A Special Research that allows you to encounter Snorlax wearing a nightcap will also be available.
Coming Soon: Pair with Pokémon GO Plus +!
You’ll soon be able to pair Pokémon GO with the Pokémon GO Plus + device slated to hit shelves in July!
Using Pokémon GO Plus + will let you play Pokémon GO without needing to keep your eyes on your phone. You’ll be able to automatically throw Poké Balls at wild Pokémon, and automatically spin PokéStops to get items. You’ll also be able to switch to throwing Great Balls or Ultra Balls with the press of a button.
When you pair Pokémon GO Plus + with your Pokémon GO game, you’ll be able to take on Special Research that allows you to encounter Snorlax wearing a nightcap! This Snorlax looks like it’ll snooze even more soundly than its regular counterparts—why not check it out for yourself?
You can also easily use Pokémon GO Plus + to track your sleep. Just press the center button and place it by your pillow.
Features that use your sleep data are planned to be added to Pokémon GO in the future. We hope you’ll pair with Pokémon GO Plus + and enjoy these features once they’re ready!
