Pikachu Pleased On Your Wrist! Apple Agrees [Pokémon Go]

Pikachu is finally on your wrist, but you can’t do everything from your Apple Watch (Pokémon Go)

It was the question every Pokémon trainer with an Apple Watch asked on day one: “Why isn’t this game on my wrist?” Well, now it is — before the end of the year, Pokémon Go will have Apple Watch support with Pikachu right there beside you. Augmented Reality trainers will be able to track their steps, egg-hatching progress and collect items from Pokéstops directly from their wrist. The watch app will even notify you when you come across a wild pocket monster. Unfortunately, you’ll still need to take your iPhone out of your pocket to actually start the Augmented Reality game and catch it.

So, basically, Pokémon Go for Apple Watch can do everything except for Augmented reality or actually catching Pokémon. That may be a small disappointment although not surprising as you need a screen to look around. Meanwhile Nintendo built a $35 wearable for the exclusive right to catch monsters without your phone. If the Apple Watch did it for free, it could potentially undercut sales of the app’s hardware component. Still, between this and Nintendo’s announcement of Super Mario Run for iOS, it’s a good time to be an Apple-loving Nintendo fan.
