It looks like Nintendo and Pokemon have partnered once again to bring fans of the beloved pocket monsters a brand new interactive device.

The Pokemon Go Plus + will let players carry around their Pokemon and take them for a stroll just like the old device, but it will also allow them to take their favorite furry friend to bed for a virtual snuggle. 

According to today's livestreamed conference, when Pokemon Go Plus + is put on a bed and used in tandem with Pokemon Sleep it will track simple information while people sleep with its built-in accelerometer. That information will then be sent to a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth. Both companies are hoping to combine sleep tracking features and time spent walking into something more enriching for players everywhere. No more details were provided about the new device or when it would be available. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date with more breaking news from the Pokemon 2019 Press Conference.
