Last year an official accessory for Pokemon GO was launched in the form of the Pokemon GO Plus. This is basically a tracker for your wrist that would alert you to Pokemon and other activities related to the game. The idea is that it will help you keep up to date with the game without your phone's display being on all the time, thus saving you some battery.
Now it looks like players who aren't too thrilled about the idea of a band will have another option they can check out, and this comes in the form of the Pokemon GO Plus Ring. As you can see in the photo to the right, this is basically the same Pokemon GO Plus accessory, except that it comes with a ring attachment where you could hook it onto your finger, or wear it around your neck with a string, or hook it onto your bag, and so on.
However for now it seems that this particular accessory is only being launched in Japan where it will retail for 400 yen, making it a pretty affordable accessory for gamers to get their hands on. We’re not sure if there are plans to eventually expand the ring’s availability to other parts of the world, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information. In the meantime Pokemon GO has recently received a pretty huge update in terms of a raid battle feature, and with more features expected to be added, such as Legendary Pokemon, perhaps these accessories are coming at a good time.
