Anyone planning to buy the Poké Ball Plus when it comes out? It's so much easier to play Pokemon GO with it.

The real question about this accessory: will it start connected to Pokemon Go for longer than one hour? Because that was super annoying with the Pokemon Go Plus...

I never used the Pokemon Go Plus, didn't know it had that problem. Not too sure if the battery will drain fast or if there'll be connectivity issues. It still seems great to use with the new Nintendo Switch games.

The real question is would you go out and play using the poke ball and risk people staring at you as if you are silly...I would love to throw a pokeball around to catch a pokemon, but I would probably be too embarrassed to do this in public lol
