There has been some amazing news for Pokémon fans as Nintendo announced a new mobile game app. “Pokémon Go” uses augmented reality and geographic location to allow users to capture Pokémon in the real world. Users can also battle other players, trade with others and even participate in raids against other Pokémon.

While Pokemon Go, will be free to play, there’ll also be an optional device called Pokemon Go Plus, a wristwatch like device that will connect to your phone via Bluetooth and notify you of nearby Pokemon.. You can wear the device either clipped to your clothing or attached to your wrist as a bracelet. The small device will notify players when any critter is nearby with LED lights and a light rumble.
