Although currently sold out at the US Nintendo store, you can place a Pokemon GO Plus + pre-order at Amazon with units available by third-party sellers. At Amazon UK, the Pokemon GO Plus + pre-orders are still readily available from Amazon directly ahead of its release on July 21.

Utilising low-energy Bluetooth technology, the Pokemon GO Plus + is designed to make playing Pokemon GO and Pokemon Sleep even easier with features exclusive to each app after linking with them.

When paired with the Pokemon Sleep app, the Pokemon GO Plus + enables you to start and stop measuring your sleep data with just a push of a button. All you need to do is press and hold the central button before placing the Pokemon GO Plus + on your pillow before sleeping.

What’s more, the Pikachu that’s apparently stored in the Pokeball-shaped hardware will also provide you with lullabies and alarm noises - to end and start your days with an adorable touch whilst tracking your sleep.

As with the original Pokemon GO Plus device when playing Pokemon GO, the Plus + allows you to automatically catch Pokemon and spin Pokestops whilst you’re playing the game out and about. What's more, you can do this hands-free without needing to push a button.

Along with getting to throw Great Balls and Ultra Balls as well as regular Poke Balls, connecting your Pokemon GO Plus + with Pokemon GO unlocks Special Research to let you catch a Snorlax wearing a nightcap. 

That’s all you need to know on how to place a Pokemon GO Plus + pre-order.
