Most of the world gets the device in a week, while some South America countries need to wait a while longer.

Question is will many people buy it, I haven't spoken to anyone who said they would consider buying it, it seems a bit useless to me because it doesn't count towards your step counter.

Is it really worth it now? A lot of people have stopped playing and a lot have already filled up their pokedex. Niantic left this too late.
Releasing it after the hype has somewhat died down will help rejuvenate Pokemon go, especially with gen 2 and new features coming up.

I was initially sure I would never get it, but with winter approaching I'm realizing that it's going to be very difficult to play, even as casually as I do now, on my phone.
Still not sure I'm gonna get it, but I'm at least considering the possibility now.
My hypothetical Galar team:
Spoiler:
Rillaboom, Toxtricity, Grimmsnarl, Coalossal, Polteageist, Frosmoth

Type combos I desire:
Grass / Fire
A real Grass / Electric
A proper Grass / Rock

yes i like grass type what of it

If it tracked steps for egg hatching I would buy one but looks like I will fall to temptation and go for the Apple Watch instead

Has anyone got the plus yet? apparantly early reports are saying that it tracks your egg distance and buddy candy despite niantic saying it wouldn't and they havent confirmed it yet

I read all the reddit info about how it works, and i'm not going to buy it right away.

it will only throw 1 regular ball at 1 mon. no 2nd chances. the mon auto runs if the ball fails.

no dust or exp. only candy. weak.

it will spin stops. i can't find if you get the exp from those spins though.

seems to be not worth it to me so far. i'll wait for more reviews. i'd rather buy incubators.

I bought it, got home reviewed it and I shouldn't have gotten it, I mean, just for it to tell me there is a pokemon or such near by and then to go to my phone to get it, what's the point? I could have already been on my phone to see it in the first place, I should have researched it a bit more before I threw that money away as I can't return it now.

So if you pass by a Pokémon you click a button, it throws a ball at the Pokémon, catches it, then later you can see which Pokémon it was on your phone?


But why would you want to catch a random Pokémon, I usually pick and choose which Pokémon I catch because I don't want to waste time and Poke balls catching Pidgey and Caterpie, which right now I'm only catching for the medals. But after that I'm done with them.


Also some Pokémon are high cp, or usually they flee. Does the game mention this? Does it catch them using a Poke ball since that's the default ball? Does it use Master Ball's when catching Pokémon ie it catches Pokémon no matter the cp or red/orange/green circle.


Also it's kind of a Pokeball wristband, I don't think I'd want to wear that in public.

sell it used on craigslist. there is still a market. it's still the new shiny. you can probably make some $$$ back.

i've read further on the internets, people seems to say you DO get the exp for spinning stops with it. i'll be picking one up (sooner or later) when i do car stop runs.

i WON'T be using it to catch any pokemon. stops only.

It will be hard to get, every one is listing them and saying they are sold out in stores every where.
