Pokemon Go Plus Release Delayed to September 2016

pokemon go plus 07-28-16-1

Nintendo has announced a delay for their Pokemon Go Plus device.

The bluetooth device was originally set to release sometime at the end of this month – now the end of July is upon us, and Nintendo has announced a delay for the unit, worldwide. Now, fans will have to wait until sometime in September to get their hands on the peripheral.

For those who haven’t been in on the entire craze or the premise of this device: it connects to your phone via bluetooth and notifies you with a vibration / LED light if there are Pokemon or PokeStop’s nearby.

Once an item is nearby, you can swipe or tap to have it added to your inventory – for Pokemon, you need to press the button to throw a Poke Ball. There’s a caveat here, you can only use this to catch Pokemon you’ve already caught.

Pre-orders for Pokemon Go Plus have been sold out for awhile, however once it launches (and is presumably available at some later point) it will cost $34.99.

    They need to create a Pokemon VR headset so that people can see the Pokemon all the time.

    Just imagine the death total rising due to idiots not seeing a speeding car through their peripheral. Darwinism at its finest.

    Yep, that’s the idea. I looked down on Pokemon Go based on the fact that it’s a mobile game, but it is doing a great service to the genetic pool.

    I must be the only person who doesn’t understand why Pokemon Go is so popular. The software is bloated and laggy, the servers are unstable, it sucks the life out of your phone, and if you’re in the wrong neighborhood, you might not even have many pokestops near you, and they’re how you’re supposed to get pokeballs and “advance” your progression in the game, so to say. The combat system is really nothing like traditional Pokemon and honestly seems quite uninspired.

    I get that it has some cool ingress-like concepts in it like using Geocaching for some things, but fuck me, why is this so popular? It seems like it brings people together just because… it’s Pokemon.

    I think you nailed it with your last sentence. Pokemon’s something a lot of us grew up playing and it’s bringing them all together in the real world so they can all walk and talk to each other. It’s really more popular for the social aspects it provides due to the common ground a lot of us have because it’s Pokemon rather than it being a good Pokemon game.

    Say what you like about Nintendo, they do a consistent job of ensuring certain members of every generation of gamers never get laid.

    I was more referring to the presence of a gaudy Pokewalker strapped to your wrist.
    Although I probably shouldn’t be surprised if that actually appeals to a certain demographic of basement strange.

    I think you need to open your eyes a little more, nerdy shit is now trendy, the whole “basement dweller” thing is a very outdated meme. being into nerdy shit can easily get you laid nowadays, as long as you’re like, a 6-7/10 appearance-wise.

    No dude you’re not the only who is baffled. All the things you can do on Go you can do in the games. Why not just download the original games if you want a rush of nostalgia? Hell the games offer more content for your money too. It just doesn’t make sense.

    Even thin-rimmed “nerd glasses” are considered ‘chic’ now a days, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Not to mention if this is too geeky for the average person to you, what do you make of Sesame Street hoodies?

    So poor smug is afraid of having sex with real persons (or any living being).

    And you even go as far as to comparing sex with commiting suicide. How cute

    Well I think I asked you a sensitive question sometime ago: “Have you ever had sex with anything?, without realizing you’ve problem trusting your own species, to say the least. So my apologies for that

    What is this autism? Even on Metacritic, the aggregator of all media pandering, this waste-of-time non-game only has a critic score in the 60s, literally nobody in the press is actually saying it’s good. It’s almost as if they don’t listen to critical reception, and instead respond to sales …

    Novelty. There’s something satisfying (I think?) about hunting pokemon in VR I suppose. After that, I’d say its the effect of having people walking to locations they previously wouldn’t go before (you’d surprised how little you know the nook and cranny of your own town unless you’re that adventurous or you live in a really small sub-urban area) and well…socializing with other people looking for similar pokemons.

    As for lack-luster gameplay; Hello, it’s the mobile game crowd. You can make an e-begging apps from the latest fads and you’ll drown in Benjamins.

    >not knowing about alimony, child custody, trap pregnancy, rape accusations, or even banned paternity tests in the case of my country (and other bullshit law(s) differencing from countries) making a relationship a real financial and mental risk
    >what is feminism in general

    Could say I was lucky enough to not have a mischievous woman long time ago but I wouldnt try my luck again these days

    I’d rather have 2D over dealing with a 3DPD relationship now.

    Yup fertility and std risk exist. But there are ways to minimize them to 0% ,within your own species, like vasectomy and condoms

    Also normal people won’t attempt a pregnancy traps, unless they be meantally ill. Learning basic psychology is enought to detect those flukes

    And if you don’t like your country laws, then, amass a crowd and start rioting. If my goverment woud ever dare to ban DNA sequencing I would, personally, burnt their seat of goverment with ClF3

    But yeah you can also take refuge in your comfy 2D simulated relationships.

    -I don’t disregard them. I minimize all of the risk associated with sex to 0%. Same as I neglect the risk of being struck by a lightning on a storm day by simply not carrying an electronic device

    -dunno about you, but where I live everyone is rational, except for the religious/mentally ill. Now I would comprehend you if you are from a muslim arab country.

    “No benefits”
    – Sex is simply the most efficient physical exercise.
    Vaginal/penile condomless sex maximizes the physical and mental health benefits associated with sex http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1743-6109.2009.01677.x/full
    That article even have a table listing all the benefits. including a 25+ years increase in life expectancy for regular male-female sex.
    Another interesting highligt of this article is the relationship with masturbation depression and suicide rates.

    So that is why I Train sex with my pet dog since that is simply the best way of keeping both of us fit and healthy. We can’t catch STD because our respective pathogens are incompatible with each other cellural biology. I can’t impregnate her because my sperm cells lack the enzymes required to pierce their ovums.

    Now all of this should be trivial if your country would’ve had a decent biology education. Where I live its and even so teens riot for an even better education all the time.

    Lastly My notion of reality go farther than humans society, Im connected with nature in a very deeply way. Hence, if science demonstrates that sex is healthy, then it supersedes any societal taboo/religious beliefs in such matters.

    I will keep having sex with female animals because its healthy and interspecies sex need to be thoroughly studied for the glory of al-mighty Science!

    you can keep masturbating and increase your chance of commit suicide as the article I cited in my previous post predicted

    Another one trying to make believe something as outlandish and counter-intuitive as:

    “Any Male penetrating Any Receptive Female, while using their respective sexual organs is, SOMEHOW, wrong.”

    This is what all animals do, Regardless of species And the including homo sapiens animals. All the time, and is the very definition of being Natural.

    So you better explain yourself what I doing wrong With my Phallus. Or just stop caring what other people on internet do with their genitalia.
