Pokémon Company CEO Hints At A New Pokémon GO Device That Will Keep Players Safer



    A new device may be in the works for Pokémon GO. In a recent interview with Nikkei, The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunakazu Ishihara addressed some concerns about safety with Pokémon GO, and revealed that, together with Nintendo, they are working to develop a new device that can help players play the game more safely.


    Here’s Ishihara’s full comment about safety and the possibility of a new device:


    “To avoid the danger, we also released “Pokemon Go Plus,” the smartphone-linked wearable device, so that “Pokemon Go” players do not have to always be looking down at their smartphone screens. Together with Nintendo, we are thinking of developing a new device that can be played more safely.”


    Though this possibility of a new device is interesting, it should be taken with a grain of salt since some information could be lost in translation. In addition, should such a device be in the works, it’s most likely still in the very early stages of planning.


    Pokémon GO is available for iOS and Android devices.
