It's nearly here!




The new Pokémon Go! Plus wearable is for sale Sept. 16th and though it's currently sold out on Amazon.com, you can keep an eye on it's availability here.


As for how it works,






At $35.99, the new wearable is cheaper than a new Apple watch and compatible with both Android and iOS devices. In the package, you should get both the device and an initial wrist strap, but you can also accessorize your Go Plus with Shield Skins and even a cool Power Bank to make your hunts longer.

Once it's released there should be a TON of third-party sites selling skins, alternative wrist straps, and accessories for it. From the looks of the pretty basic design, you can also probably pretty easily DIY your own wrist strap.





You can also just look super cool hanging it out of your shirt pocket--sans accessories--too:




So get out there and catch some Pokémon! Happy Hunting!

This morning's Pokémon direct announced the arrival of a new set of Pokémon games coming to 3DS later this year. The games will be available in Japanese, English, Italian, Korean, Spanish, French, German, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

The presentation also announced that the recently re-released Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow for 3DS will utilize the Pokémon Bank, allowing players to transfer their Gen 1 Pokémon into Sun and Moon.


Edit: an earlier version of this post identified Sun and Moon as generation 7, which has not been confirmed by the Pokémon Company, but it will definitely feature "a new world, new Pokémon, and new adventures" according to the official site.

After nine years of work by Pokémon Uranium's developers, and a reported 1.5 million downloads, the inspired fan-made game has officially been shut down by Nintendo---specifically, all the download links were removed before Nintendo could pursue them with any legal action.



Some truly saddening news, as Pokémon Uranium was definitely a game worth getting real excited about! Featured over 150 new Pokémon, a new type of 'nuclear' Pokémon, and dozens of hours of new content with a well-developed storyline. See the original trailer here:



This isn't the first time we've seen Nintendo bring down the ban hammer on a fan re-make: Nintendo gave the same treatment to "AM2R," a remake of the GameBoy classic Metroid II.

All hail shiny Charizard!

Starting on February 27th, an identical re-print of the original set of Pokémon trading cards will go on sale in Japan. The cards will come in a pack of sixty with a coin and player's manual for 1,300 yen. 

Unluckily for the rest of us, this release is so far only planned for Japan, as it coincides with the anniversary of the original card game's release in Japan in 1996.

It's practically a give at this point that your Pokémon GO! adventures will take you off the beaten path, and maybe even tempt you to go exploring your neighbors' properties with the utmost caution...naturally, this pisses the hell out of some folks who just want to be left alone like this chick...



Well, not Matthew Beaman. Beaman's been busy depositing 3D models of Pokémon for players at Poké Stops around Ikfracombe, Devon. He wanted to leave players souvenirs that'll last off their screens.



"I thought rather than leaving it just to chance I should let people have some fun with it.



"I've had people shouting thank you at me in the street."



Damn right. You are the MAN.
