Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!
Thanks to the latest post on the Topics section of Nintendo’s website, we now have some additional details about the Poké Ball Plus when it’s used along with Pokémon GO. It can be put in Pokémon GO Plus mode, with two additional “modes”:
- if you put a Pokémon in the Poké Ball Plus, then it will spin the Poké Stops automatically;
- if you don’t put a Pokémon in the Poké Ball Plus, you will simply be notified of nearby Poké Stops via vibrations.
And here’s some more screenshots for the game:
Finally, here’s some moer gameplay footage for the game, courtesy of CoroCoro magazine:
