If having Mario on phones wasn’t surprising enough, then how about having Pokemon GO available for your Apple Watch? During the same Apple Keynote Event that happened earlier today, it was announced that a companion app for Pokemon GO will be released, in which you can check in on your stats, egg hatching, Pokemon encounters and a variety of other things. It’s less of the whole game being ported to the watch and more like getting a more convenient way to see all of your information. You’ll be able to see a demonstration of how it works in the video above, which also has my reaction to it as it happens.
This isn’t big enough for me to want to go out and buy an Apple Watch, but it’s a nice little convenient thing that can be useful for people that already own the device.
