We did bring you word on how Pokémon GO was about to make its debut on the Apple Watch platform just a few days ago, and here we are with word that the smartwatch platform from Apple is more than ready to pick up some Pokémon GO goodness. With Pokémon GO available on the Apple Watch, you can now explore as well as experience the whole gamut of Pokémon catching and training, right from the comfort of your own wrist, now how about that? It does not matter whether you are out there searching for a particular Pokémon or trying to hatch some of the Pokémon that were part of the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver games, the Apple Watch is the right platform to do so.
What advantages are there in playing Pokémon GO on the Apple Watch? For starters, it will certainly be a unique way to merge both gameplay as well as imagination onto a single device. Not only that, gamers will be able to enjoy getting a fair bit of exercise if they were to play the game without any hack -- as you explore the world around you through the wonders of Augmented Reality (AR). Interaction with Pokémon GO on the Apple Watch is a snap -- just issue quick taps, and you are able to discover nearby Pokémon as well as pick up items from PokéStops.
For instance, it would be best if your Apple Watch went with your iPhone. Each time you come across a Pokémon, use your iPhone to catch it. From there, there is an Apple Watch app that will be able to log your play sessions as a Workout. These Workouts will eventually count toward your personal Activity rings, in addition to keeping track of the distance required when it comes to hatching Pokémon Eggs. Apart from that, Pokémon GO on Apple Watch will let you obtain notifications about PokéStops nearby and collect items from them, as well as notifications as Eggs hatch and medals are awarded.
Pokémon GO celebrates the holiday season, too
The next fortnight will be an added bonus for Pokémon GO players, since you have all the more reason not to remain at home with boring relatives, but to “get some air outside”. That is but an excuse to enjoy more Pokémon GO on the move, since Niantic Labs will provide you with an increased opportunity to hatch a Togepi as well as other Pokémon from Christmas morning itself, all the way to the afternoon of January 3, 2017 (PST).
PokéStops will offer one single-use Incubator every single day once you have performed your first Photo Disc spin. Paying more visits to PokéStops during this time window will then increase the amount of chances in hunting down Eggs which will end up hatching the likes of Togepi, Pichu, and other kinds of recently discovered Pokémon, which can be located in the Johto region. Pikachu with festive hats on their heads will also be making their presence felt all the more this festive season.
Not only that, from the afternoon of December 30, 2016, all the way through the afternoon of January 8, 2017 (PST), the first partner Pokémon and their Evolutions will also have a higher degree of being discovered. If you would like to add Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard, Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise, to your collection, there is no better time period than the one mentioned. Lure Modules are also more effective then, working for 60 minutes as opposed to the regular 30 minutes.
