You can customize your Pokémon Go Plus before you even get one

It was only a matter of time.

Pokémon Go Plus, the Bluetooth gadget that will complement gameplay, hasn’t even been released yet, but there are already accessory options popping up online.

If walking around with a pokéball on your wrist doesn’t suit your style, a company by the name of PokeWares is taking pre-orders for Pokémon Go Plus skins.


The skins are stylish wooden veneers that sticks on the Plus, making it look more like a watch than a kid’s toy. (I say “kid’s toy” lightly as a 28-year-old who got kicked out of a park by the police trying to catch a Dratini last night.) There are plain options, like ash, ebony, and walnut, or you can subtly show your team colors, and go with Instinct yellow, Mystic blue, or Valor red.

Pokémon Go Plus is supposed to be released at the end of July, and pre-orders have already sent companies scrambling to keep up.  The device is currently unavailable anywhere, but you can set a notification on Amazon so that you get an email the moment it’s available to purchase or pre-order.

PokeWares has an August 10 release date for the Plus skins. It looks like they’re giving early buyers a discount for the occasion too, because they’re normally priced at $20, but you can pre-order them for $12.99 right now. We’re sure other customizable options will pop up for the Plus, but these skins look far more chic than a pokéball.

Check it out here, trainers!
