How to Pre-Order Pokémon GO Plus in Canada, Sept. 16 Launch

Pokemon Go

The much awaited Pokémon GO Plus is finally available to pre-order in Canada. For those who aren’t aware, the accessory lets you enjoy Pokémon GO while you’re on the move and not looking at your smartphone. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth low energy and notifies you about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby, using an LED and vibration.

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.

The accessory is convenient for those who do not own an Apple Watch, as Pokemon GO support is coming later this fall.

Click here to pre-order the Pokémon GO Plus from Amazon.ca for $44.99 with free shipping in Canada. The accessory will also be available from EB Games and Toys R Us.

    What’s Pokemon go? Does anybody know? Is there a site that posts stories about it, so I can educate myself?

    Lol jk but seriously does anybody still play? Besides kids and stuff?

  • No haven’t touched the app since reaching level 5.

    Yeah, everyone I know seems to have stopped too. It’s strange how popular it was and how unpopular it seems now.

    I guess the world moves fast these days. I wonder why this died and Snapchat didn’t?

    Why do this, when the Apple Watch will do this but better. Lol

    Now if Nintendo was smart and didn’t delay this and released it when the mobile game was still at its peek (I don’t see many people play this game anymore), Nintendo would’ve seen profits.
