Pokémon Kill Plus is a peripheral device that connects your phone with Bluetooth and basically allows you to play Pokémon Go without being glued to your phone all the time. Niantic and nintendo said their goal with pokemon go plus is to encourage head-to-head play, which means they want people to go outside and look around, not just stare at their phone all the time, the goal of this game when they imagined and created for the first time. it was getting people go out and explore the world around them and i'm sure many of you have noticed that when people are playing pokemon go they usually seem to not pay attention to the world around them so pokemon go Plus aims to alleviate some of that issue so here's pretty small actually the wrist strap as well as having a clip right now obviously there's a wrist strap option plus sales retailers for $35, that's what I paid for it, but they're out of stock everywhere right now, so if you wanted to pick one up now, you'd probably have to pay over $75 for it to a reseller on eBay or on Amazon, so today one of my main goals is to decide if it's

worth

it or not, first of all I'm going to say right now that I don't think it's

worth

paying $75 right now, it's probably best to wait until Nintendo restock and ship more for po You might want to get one at retail but that's going to be one of the things that I go over is worth connecting you want to go to your settings and there should be a pokemon go plus option right here if you don't have it there just update the app they added in the most recent update and i don't have bluetooth on i turn it off when i lost my watch now with bluetooth on and you're on the pokemon go plus screen just press the button it turns on it lights up just press the button there's pokemon go plus touch it there it vibrates to let you know something happened press the go button more appears press go more nothing happens it vibrated this again there it's ok Pokemon go plus is finally connected with this connected I'm going to change the wristband clip just for the purpose of this video I think for For the most part, I'll probably use the clip, but to make it easier for the video, I'm going to put it on the wrist today to change that.

You really need a screwdriver. My little screwdriver is here. I was not here. I found that little screwdriver all set come on I'm him I'm in downtown Pasadena to test the pokemon go plus features and it really has two main functions it will notify you of pokey stops and it will notify you of pokemon when you are in range of a pokey stop, it will flash blue and vibrate like this, you can press the button to spin the pokey stop and it will flash rainbow colors and vibrate to let you know that you collected some items after spending the pokey stop, you can open your journal to see what i got it so i just spun it and i got a revived pokeball and a super potion when you are in range of a wild pokemon go plus vibrates and the light flashes green and you can press the button to throw a pokeball you cant choose what kind of ball it just throws a pokeball and you catch it or not so let's see what happens just like with pokey it stops the rainbow flashing lights means it was a catch successful if you want to see what caught you you have to go to your journal and there it will tell you pidgey exciting if go+ fails to catch a pokemon you will see a red light and i will check and see what i just missed ekans i also got a pikachu Before, it's nice to be able to try and catch Pokemon without taking your phone down, but as I scroll down my list, you see here Toros ran away doduo we ran away gravel ran away these are Pokemon you'll probably want to catch so you never know what you're going to get with go+ as I am I'm going to use it personally when I get that notification.

I'm going to pull out my phone to see what Pokemon is really there and decide if I want to try to catch it or if I want to use something better than a pokeball because I'd hate to. Look, Lapras got away, he's fine. I got my green light instead of pushing the button. I'm going to open the app and see what's going on. You can see there is a pokemon go plus icon and it points to where that pokemon is. it's tracking so i can see this is a manky if i were to press the button now you would have it throw a ball but i'm here i might as well try catching it with go plus that probably would have gotten away with go+ connected a Every time you try to catch a pokemon in the game, go plus disconnects and you have to press the little get button here and it will reconnect.

You have to do that every time you try to catch Pokemon in the game. You can still spend pokey stops and it won't disconnect, but if you catch Pokemon you have to reconnect every time, by far the best. about pokemon go plus is that it allows the app to run in the background, you don't need to have your screen on, you can put it in your pocket and it still tracks distance, so check it out right now. I have some eggs. I just started. these 2 kilometer eggs I have 3.6 in my 10k and with my friend right now we have 2.5 of 3 kilometers I'm going to lock the phone put it in my pocket and take a walk if you walk out of range a little stop before push the button, it will flash red and that will let you know it's e out of range you didn't take any items out of it in the car now i didn't take my phone out once during the hike and let's see what's going on drowsy you can see we finished the last three kilometers and we walked another kilometer that's 1.5 kilometers and the eggs show the same 1.5 kilometers walked with my phone locked in my pocket thanks to pokemon go plus now the question is is pokemon go plus worth it and i think for most people the answer is yes but it depends on your gaming style for me personally i love that go plus gives me the ability to play the game passively i can have the phone in my pocket and go plus notifies me It'll be when there's something I need to interact with I don't have to walk around like a Pokemon zombie and honestly I think just having the ability to run the game in the background while you're doing other things on your phone or while your phone is locked and saved it's worth the thirty five bucks but with that being said I don't think it's a feature we should have to pay for it's obviously possible so I don't know why Niantic and Nintendo decided you would need to buy an additional accessory to be able to do that they could have designed it so that the game runs in the background. and your phone will vibrate and give you a notification when there is a pokey stop or pokemon and scope if they really wanted to encourage head to head play that should have been a feature from the start they don't need to force you to buy a $35 accessory to do that and honestly they're probably making a lot more money from in app purchases than selling pokemon go plus even though this is distributed by nintendo so maybe they wanted their cut so they can spin the pokey stops with go plus it's great . trying to catch pokemon with it, on the other hand, isn't that great, it's really hit or miss and the fact that you can't see what pokemon you're trying to catch before you throw your one pokeball means that a lot of rare pokemon are probably going to get away from you.
So like I said, I really recommend waiting for that notification and then pulling out your phone to make sure you don't miss out on something you really want now that we know a Pokemon go Plus app is coming. Apple Watch and Android will most likely be using in the near future and has many of the same features as Pokemon Go, plus the only difference so far that we know is that with the watch versions you won't be able to test. to catch the wild pokemon but the notification you get tells you which wild pokemon shows up so you can decide from that notification whether or not you want to get your phone out and take the time to try and catch it so if you already have an apple or Android watch you probably don't need go+ right away and you guys know I'm in the market for a new watch so I'll definitely buy an Android device and download the Pokemon Go app as soon as it's released because what falls online more wit the way that i want to use it because it actually tells me what pokemon i'm running into so i can decide whether or not i need to try and catch it so again it's absolutely worth the retail price of $35 just because it allows you to run the game in the background since i got to home from Pasadena.
I had the go Plus still connected and I would just walk around the house and go pick up some food and come back. I hatched my 2 kilometer eggs without even realizing it without even trying. I didn't have my phone open I wasn't actively walking around with the intention of hatching those eggs it just happened passively so with go+ connected you will always build up distance for your friend and your eggs now please don't pay $75 to a reseller because I'm not sure it's worth that much plus it's just a shady practice and i wouldn't want to support it i hope nintendo can put out more and keep up with the demand because obviously a lot of people want this and for good reason for this it will definitely become a regular part of my daily pokemon go experience and i really recommend it to anyone who is undecided now, with that being said i am going to change this back to a clip and you will pretty much see it on me. all the time from now on i'll see you tomorrow it's a hidden ghost spy inside we're outside the Hotel del Coronado which apparently is haunted according to whoever says it's haunted and there's a Haunter in the sightings so I think it's quite appropriate that we try to find it right now yes we will find it this is very nice and definitely looks haunted
