According to Nintendo of America’s Twitter page, the Pokemon Go Plus accessory, while originally slated for a release at the end of July, has been pushed back until September.


The watch-like peripheral, which communicates with your phone via Bluetooth, will allow players to catch Pokemon with the press of a button without having to look at their phones. With pre-orders for the device already sold out at most retailers, it seems Pokemon fans will have to wait just a bit longer to get their hands on the device.
