It also will vibrate like a Joy-con. It can simulate that a Pokémon is inside the Pokéball Plus.

Like Pokémon Go plus, it offer the screen-free function which you can catch Pokémon without looking at your smartphone. When a Pokémon appears nearby, Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate. To catch press the button and it will auto catch the Pokémon (Not 100% catch tho).

The color of the LED light will indicate if you succeeded or failed in your catch.

The Poké Ball Plus connected to your smartphone Pokémon GO app, it will hatch Eggs and get Candy of your Buddy Pokémon.

In short, if you get this, this will replace your current Pokémon Go plus.

Smart way to get the money from  Pokémon Go players I must say.
