Since Pokémon Go was first announced, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have been very quiet about its development process.  Today, Nintendo has just offered a massive trove of information about the upcoming smartphone game to kick off E3 Day 2!

A major component of Pokémon Go is the Pokémon Go Plus accessory. This is a Bluetooth Device that will interact directly with the Pokémon Go app on your smartphone to notify Pokémon Go Trainers without them needing to constantly check their phones.

When you are near a Pokémon, Pokémon Go Plus will vibrate and signal you with a specific color light. You can then push a button on the Plus to launch a Pokeball at the Pokémon. If the capture is successful, the Plus will flash a rainbow of several different colors, and a failed capture will be indicated by a solid red light.  You can then check your app at your leisure to see what you captured.

So how much will this cool device cost and when can we expect it?  Myamoto himself confirmed Pokémon Go Plus will be out at the end of July for a price of $34.99. This is great news, as this isn’t that far away and obviously the Pokémon Go app itself will need to be released before the accessory is!

Only the Pokémon from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue will be available at the app’s launch. This was an intentional decision due to it being the 20th anniversary of Pokémon.

Pokémon Go is coming to Android and iOS devices!
