The Pokémon Company has revealed the new Pokémon GO Plus+ accessory for both Pokémon GO and Pokémon Sleep. Here's when it releases.

As part of the February 2023 Pokémon Day Pokémon Presents presentation, fans were treated to a glimpse at upcoming content for both Pokémon GO and the long-awaited Pokémon Sleep. Alongside in-game content, a brand new accessory is in development — the Pokémon GO Plus+.

In its introduction video, the Pokémon GO Plus+ is shown to be used with Pokémon Sleep to help track a user's sleep patterns. Users press the button in the center when they go to sleep, triggering a short Pikachu sound, and then press it once again when they wake up in the morning. Sleep data is then measured and transferred over to the Pokémon Sleep app.

As for Pokémon GO, the Pokémon GO Plus+ allows players to automatically spin PokéStops and through Pokéballs at Pokémon without having to open up their smart phone. Players can choose to now only throw regular Pokéballs, but Great Balls and Ultra Balls too.

When Does the Pokémon GO Plus+ Release?

According to the recent Pokémon Presents, the Pokémon GO Plus+ device will be available from July 14, 2023. At the time of writing, players are able to pre-order the accessory via the Nintendo store for $54.99.

Those who link their Pokémon GO Plus+ to Pokémon GO will receive access to a Special Research task that will reward players with a Snorlax wearing a nightcap encounter in-game.
