Pokémon GO was recently updated, with brand new features as well as a real-money store to buy cosmetic items. Needless to say, it’s gotten people very excited about the game again. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of the most essential and best deals a die-hard Pokémon GO player will need.
Pokémon GO Plus
It may not be officially released or in stock yet, but the Pokémon GO Plus is a handy little device that clips onto your clothing, bag or person using the included wristband. It connects to your phone via bluetooth and will vibrate when you enter an area in the real world with nearby Pokémon. Sound cool? Definitely. In addition, Pokémon GO players can use the button on the Plus to interact with the game without using their phone. It’s due to be launched in late July 2016. We’ll update when it is, but in the meantime, the links below are where you’ll find it on Amazon when it does become available.
