How to Find Pokemon Go Plus in December
 

The Pokemon Go Plus wearable is one of the hardest holiday gifts to find. Here are the best options to buy a Pokemon Go Plus in time for the Holidays.

Nintendo is drawing a lot of attention this Holiday season without even having a new flagship video game console on the market. The attention is not all positive as the Japanese video game company has extreme supply issues. The Nintendo NES Classic console is extremely hard to find and the Nintendo made  $34.99 Pokemon Go Plus has not been seen in stock online since November 10.

Some brick and mortar stores had sporadic inventory over the past weeks, but nothing that can be called a new wave of inventory. There is no announcement from Nintendo about restocking retailers with Pokemon Go Plus. The Pokemon Go Plus is available for about double of the MSRP from resellers on amazon.com.

The weird thing about the shortage of the Pokemon Go Plus is that it varies across the globe. We just have purchased three Pokemon Go Plus at the regular 44.99 Euro price in Germany. The German Nintendo company is selling Pokemon Go Plus through Amazon.de. They impose a limit of 1 per customer. We purchased two more at Europe's largest consumer electronics store MediaMarkt.de. There seems no purchasing limit in effect there. 

Why German retailers have Pokemon Go Plus readily available and American stores don't is unclear. The Pokemon Go Plus devices are the same world-wide. 

Americans with friends and family in Germany can ask to have it purchased for them and forwarded via mail. There is still enough time to get the Pokemon Go Plus shipped from Germany to the US in time for Christmas at reasonable shipping cost.

Another way to get a Pokemon Go Plus is through our new Pokemon Go Plus giveaway. That is right. We are giving away the three Pokemon Go Plus units our German office just bought. We already gave away Pokemon Go Plus in September. Our new Pokemon Go Plus give away in December will run until December 12, so we can ship the Pokemon Go Plus units in time for the Holidays to the three winners.

I4U News readers located in the United States and the UK can enter the I4U News Pokemon Go Plus Giveaway each day to increase their chances of winning. The more tasks participants perform the higher the number of entries will be.

Pokemon Go keeps on to be a popular game through out the Holiday season. The AR game ranks stil under the top 10 grossing apps on iTunes. The Pokemon Go community has solidified. Niantic has finally rolled out the nearby tracking to all of the continential United States and most parts of Europe as announced end of November.

The 3rd party developer community is still providing Pokemon Go scanners. Since the demise of FastPokeMap, many more apps and services have sprung up providing Pokemon Go trainers ways to find Pokemon effectively. There is a comprehensive list of available 3rd party Pokemon scanner on reddit
