Pokémon GO Plus can connect to your phone via Bluetooth, allowing you to walk around and catch Pokémon without having to look at your phone’s screen repeatedly. When a Pokémon pops up nearby, the device notifies you with vibrating and a blinking LED. Even to catch the Pokémon, you don’t need to take out your phone, just press the button on the device to throw the Pokéball, and if you’re successful, you’ll get another notification in the form of a flash and a vibration. You can’t catch new Pokémon using Pokémon GO Plus, though.
If you still haven’t jumped on the Pokémon GO bandwagon yet, here’s our guide to get you started. Gotta catch ’em all!
