Description

The Pokémon GO Plus accessory can be used with any compatible smart phone that has the Pokémon GO application installed. After the Pokémon GO Plus is paired via Bluetooth LE and a brief setup process is completed, players can encounter and catch Pokémon like never before. When the smart phone with Pokémon Go and the paired Pokémon GO Plus accessory are within range of each other, both will begin to vibrate when a Pokémon is close by. With the convenience of not having to look at your smart phone, simply press the button on the Pokémon GO Plus to attempt to catch a Pokémon while you are out and about.

Pokémon GO users will also encounter set locations called PokéStops, where you can collect items like Poké Balls, Berries and even Pokémon Eggs. Pokémon GO Plus is an easy and convenient way to collect Pokémon and items without having to look at your smart phone.

Features:

  • Accessory for the Pokémon GO application provides an easy and convenient way to catch Pokémon and collect items
  • Catch Pokémon in the wild with a simple click of a button
  • Collect Poké Balls, Berries, Pokémon Eggs and other items at set PokéStop locations without having to look at your smart phone

This device is overkill, I sold mine as there is no real point, you might as well have a web that collects mon and then you can sift through to see if you got anything good afterwards. Okay for the hardcore obsessed with leveling up but not at all necessary for the average casual player.

Is this relavant in 2018?

Firstly if you want to save a little power on your phone and not be looking at it 24/7 and enjoy exploring and seeing the area then get it. it tends to randomly disconnect but it lets you know when that happens. makes getting into shape easier since you save a fair amount of power on your phone and if you are hunting in an area or out with friends then this is great. bot good for high spawn spots tho. I`m loveing it

Very Nice

I've had the Go Plus for a month now. It gave me the battery low warning twice (with a little symbol on the phone) but after leaving it for a while the warning goes away. And the battery is still more than the 3V it should be. I use it for a minimum of 10 hours every day. Catching pokemon at level 25 had a 50/50 percent pass rate, but it's getting less as I progress. Pros: This little gadget makes it so easy to catch all the low CP on the way home or work and even while working I'm able to use it as it doesn't distract me at all like looking at my screen would. The gadget works even if you are in sleep mode or busy with something else on your phone and you can even catch a pokemon on your phone while catching another one with the gadget. It does require that you are always stocked up on normal pokeballs which in my case means I need to buy some each month. Cons: It tends to disconnect at will and it might warn you that it's disconnecting or it might not. Sometimes either the device or the phone thinks it's connected but it's not, and you then struggle to reconnect it. The bluetooth connection is flimsy, and sometimes I struggle a few hours a day to get the connection going, for it to be stable for the next few days, and then disconnect again which results in restarting the app, restarting your phone if that doesn't work, unpairing the device if that doesn't work, then struggling to get your phone to see the device again. Catching pokestops while driving (as a passenger!) is almost impossible as it only picks up the stop when you've passed it already. It's certainly not perfect, but it does relieve he drudgery of catching all the pokemon you've seen a thousand times already and building up much needed stardust. I would recommend you buy it only if you have the cash to spare. It's still very expensive for what it achieves.

Definitely for the more Serious Pokemon Go player!!!

So after a week of having the Pokemon Go Plus here are some pro's and con's in my opinion, but I do like the early warning and playing on the go.
Pro's:
You don't need to walk with you phone in you hand all the time, so it helps with battery and prevents a phone being lost, damaged or stolen easily.
It makes collecting items at a pokestop convenient and warns you when a pokemon is near, however, DO NOT use this to catch pokemon.
Playing pokemon go while driving is now possible as you just need to press a button and the rest happens by itself.
Con's:
It is useless when it comes to catching pokemon. I have seen some people say that you have a 50/50 chance of catching pokemon, but it is definitely far less than that. On average 4 out of every 5 pokemon will run away and you won't catch it. So use the warning to get to your phone and catch it the old fashioned way.
Unfortunately it comes with a normal replaceable battery and can't be charged. Will have to see how long a battery will last if used fairly regularly.

Getting your phone stolen while playing pokemon go is not fun -_- Atleast with the Pokemon go plus we have the ability to minimize that risk. It is truly a must have.

Could save lives

By having this 'early warning' system when coming close to a PokeStop area, the vibrating alerting system, and the ability to attempt catching a Pokemon with the touch of a button, this gadget could seriously save lives. I personally cannot wait to get this with the app!!
