Pokémon GO Plus

The Nintendo UK Store has re-added the Pokémon GO Plus pre-order, but there is a previously un-seen note on the page. According to the Nintendo UK site, the Pokémon GO Plus, as of July 2016, is only compatible with iPhone 5/5c/5s/SE/6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus and operating systems iOS 8 – 9. It states that compatibility with Android devices is currently in development. It is not clear if this will be the case at launch, or if they will resolve the issues in time but having it listed separately indicates there may be issues. We'll bring more about this as it comes so keep checking back

Until Next Time, See Ya
