The free-to-play game's release will be accompanied by the release of a physical accessory you can purchase. Pokemon Go Plus is a clip-on attachment that you can choose to wear as a wristband. It allows you to play without looking at your phone by pressing a button on it to capture a nearby Pokemon when it vibrates, but that privilege will cost you $35.
