Pokémon Go Plus + is a new accessory that is being launched by Nintendo and can be used to connect to both Pokémon Go and Pokémon Sleep. Pokémon Sleep is an upcoming game launching for both iOS and Android devices during this summer where players can earn rewards depending on the amount and nature of their sleep. The new accessory is also supposed to make playing Pokémon Go easier for players than ever before. Here’s all that one needs to know about it.

What is Pokémon Go Plus +

The Pokémon Go Plus + is an actual real-life device that is being manufactured by Nintendo Limited and can be bought by Pokémon fans to participate in the upcoming Pokémon Sleep game and the already existing Pokémon Go games. It is the successor of the previous Pokémon Go Plus device.

The device is on sale from July 14, 2023, in the US and will go on sale from July 21, 2023, in Europe. It looks similar to an actual Pokéball but instead of only a ball, it is flat and shaped like a button. Players can continue playing Pokémon Go without buying this accessory still without the additional benefits but it is necessary to get one if they want to play Pokémon Sleep.

Players need to use this accessory while playing Pokémon Sleep as it is the only way the game can track their sleep cycle. They need to click on the button in the middle of the device once they go to bed and then click on it once again when they wake up. Based on the sleep data, players will be able to progress in the real game. The game is available to be installed from the App Store while it is available for pre-registration on the Play Store as it will release in the summer of this year.

Unlike Pokémon Sleep, players don’t need to use the new accessory to play Pokémon Go. But if they have bought it already for Pokémon Sleep, they should also pair it with Pokémon Go when they are playing it to use the full potential of the device.
