It will be interesting to see how the Pokemon Go Plus can be used at a Pokemon nest. It should be rapid fire alerts. A nest would be real test for the catch rate that is reportedly very low.
The Pokemon Go Plus has been received with mixed reviews from users who already got their hands on the device. Some find it incredible useful others hate the fact that the catch rate of Pokemon withe Go Plus are that low.
Pokemon Go Plus works with the latest Pokemon Go app updates 0.37.0 (Android) and 1.7.0 (iOS). The Pokemon bracelet has been verified to work with the Pokemon Go app running in the background in locked mode. Egg and Buddy distances are recorded while the smartphone is in locked mode, saving valuable battery power.
Raiding PokeStop is extremely convenient with the Go Plus. After getting notified of the presence of a PokeStop, you just press the button and you collect all items. This works also great for lucky trainers that work or live next to a PokeStop. They can just every 5 minutes.
The Pokemon Go Plus wristband is also notifying you when there is a wild Pokemon. You can try to catch it by pushing the button to throw a ball. This is though less of a powerful feature. There is no guarantee that you catch the Pokemon. On top of that you do not know which Pokemon it is. You need to pull out your smartphone to check. If it is a rare Pokemon, you then can decide to use a more powerful ball.
The Pokemon Go Plus is compatible with iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, SE, 6, 6s, 6 Plus, 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices with iOS 8 or later installed.
The Pokemon Go accessory is compatible with Android devices that have 2GB RAM or more with Android Ver. 4.4–6.0 installed. Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Ver. 4.0 or higher) is required to use Pokemon Go Plus on Android.
Read the first Pokemon Go Plus review with more details on how the Pokemon Go Plus works. The main advantages of using Pokemon Go Plus is the raiding of PokeStops with a push of a button. The second advantage is the tracking of egg and buddy distance while the phone is locked. That saves battery and you do no have to hold your phone. The catching of Pokemon feature is controversial. First users of Pokemon Go Plus report a rather disappointing low 30% capture rate. On top of that no XP and star dust is earned with the capture of a Pokemon using Pokemon Go Plus.
