Pokemon Go Apple Watch App Still Happening Despite Rumors
The website called 9to5Mac had reported earlier that they have “confirmed with a source with knowledge of the plans that the Apple Watch app has for now been shelved.”, speaking about the Pokemon Go app that was promised back in September. It seems their source was wrong, because soon after the Pokemon Go Twitter account was quick to squash those rumors with a simple, but effective tweet.
Pokémon Go for Apple Watch is coming soon. Stay tuned.

They confirmed not only that it is coming, but soon. This Apple Watch app won’t let you catch Pokemon unfortunately, but it will help you hatch your eggs and use Pokestops, very similar to the Pokemon Go Plus Accesory. Pokemon Go has become a worldwide phenomenon and was one of the most popular and profitable mobile games of 2016. It has been downloaded more than 500 million times worldwide and really introduced the world to the fun of augmented reality. The game has promoted physical activity, but there were also a lot of accidents caused by people not paying attention to their surroundings.
