At The Pokémon Company event tonight, the arbiters of all things Pokémon revealed a new device for Pokémon Sleep, as well as Pokémon Go. The Pokémon Go Plus Plus, yes that is the actual name, is used to track sleep as well as do everything the Pokémon Go Plus does.
I’ll be honest, I’m mostly just in love with that name and can’t stop laughing about it. But it is interesting to note that, years ago, Nintendo was working on quality of life initiatives like heart tracking and sleep tracking that they eventually shelved. They could not figure out a way at the time to make these things fun and a decent bit of that was having to wear somewhat clinical-looking accessories. It does seem like Pokémon Go Plus Plus is a way around that idea.
The Pokémon Go Plus Plus will use bluetooth and transmit data to your phone that way.
