Pokémon GO: New ring Accessory


Pokémon GO players in Japan will be able to wear their Pokémon GO Plus devices like a ring starting tomorrow.

Nintendo announced a new accessory for the Pokémon GO Plus that connects to the device’s back and allows players to hold it in the palm of their hand without fear of dropping it. The new ring will cost 400 yen (or about $3.50 in US dollars.)

The Pokémon GO Plus is a Bluetooth-enabled device that syncs up with a user’s Pokémon GO app to let them catch Pokémon and spin PokéStops without looking at their phone.

To promote the new ring accessory, Nintendo is offering a special set of free decals to anyone who buys a Pokémon GO Plus from a Pokémon Center store in Japan. The decals will make the Pokémon GO Plus look like a Great Ball, Ultra Ball, or Master Ball.

While the Master Ball decal is probably just a coincidence, we should note that the powerful PokéBall has not been unlocked in Pokémon GO yet even though it’s been in the game’s code since launch.

As of right now, Nintendo has not announced whether the new ring accessory will be coming to the United States.
