Pokemon Go Plus Attachment Delayed Until September

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably addicted to walking around with your face buried in your phone as you try to catch that elusive rare pocket monster on Pokemon Go. The mobile game has become a global phenomenon in just a matter of weeks.

However, if you were planning to supplement your Pokemon training habits with the Pokemon Go Plus — a wearable bracelet that connects to your phone and uses vibrations and lights to inform players of nearby things of interest — then we have bad news. Nintendo announced on Wednesday via their Facebook page that the release of the accessory has been delayed until September.

“The Pokémon GO Plus accessory will now be released in September 2016 instead of the originally expected end of July launch date. Thanks for your patience, trainers.”

While people are downloading and enjoying the game in record numbers, Pokemon Go will need some additional features to keep people interested. The game is currently a little bare and becomes frustrating when you reach the very high levels. Adding trading, enhanced Pokestop features, and a more detailed gym battle system would all help. As would adding newer generation Pokemon, plus making the Pokemon Go Plus actually a useful addition.
