Viral rat-hunting cellular game Pokémon Go is currently about the Apple Watch. Starting today, you can find rats, a few of which now have Christmas hats, on your $270 wrist-bound iPhone.
September Fans expected Niantic to release an associated Pokémon Go app closer to, or in least, before the final end of the entire year. A rumor recently spread that the complete project was cancelled until mid-December when Niantic clarified via Twitter that Pokémon Go on the Apple View was still alive. The news release reads, “Apple Watch is specially well suited to Pokémon GO as it seamlessly combines gameplay and imagination with getting exercise and exploring the real world.”
On your Apple Watch, you’ll receive notifications about close by Pokémon and PokéStops, get items from PokéStops, hatch eggs and receive candy. Unlike the Pokémon wrist plus Go accessory, you can’t catch Pokémon on it. You’ll need to capture on your Mobile.
