Truly a jolly season! Finally the Pokemon Go is available on iTunes stores for Apple Watch.
The game involves catching digital pocket monsters in an augmented-reality version of your surroundings. The Apple Watch version will let you discover nearby Pokemon and collect special items, such as potions, from nearby “PokeStops.” But once you encounter a Pokemon, you will need to use your iPhone to catch it.
Still, the Apple Watch should make it easier for players to log their steps (needed to advance in the game and to hatch new Pokemon out of eggs), and to avoid walking around with their phones held out to search for nearby monsters.
The game’s maker, Niantic, hasn’t announced any plans for Android Wear and Samsung Gear smartwatches.
The game was recently launched in India in partnership with Reliance Jio. The India launches and now the Apple Watch launch seem to have come a little too late for the Pokemon Go game.
