After months of waiting, Pokémon GO players can finally get their hands on the Go Plus wearable accessory.

When Pokémon GO first zombified Australians back in July, the advertised Pokémon GO Plus accessory was noticeably absent. When Pokémon GO was first announced it was suggested players would be able to click a button in-app that would direct them to their closest GO Plus vendor. That never happened. Nearly two months on and EB Games has officially announced when Australians can preorder the Poké-peripheral and how much for.

As of 12PM on Monday 12 September, trainers can preorder the Go Plus accessory online at EB Games. Though, as EB Games stresses, stock is extremely limited  and preorders are restricted to one per customer. The Pokémon GO Plus will set you back $49.95 from EB Games, which is a bit strong considering it looks like something you'd find at the bottom of a cereal box.

The devices advertises a handful of features to help you on your hunt. It will flash when a wild Pokémon is nearby and vibrate when you pass a Pokéstop. Though, as Nintendo has pointed out in the past, you will only be able to catch Pokémon with GO Plus if you already have them in your Pokédex. There's also been some concern recently over just how useful the device will be considering the app has to be running in your pocket to take advantage of the GO Plus accessory, because as most know by now, Pokémon GO is a horrendous drain on your smartphone's batteryv.

The Pokémon Go Plus accessory is compatible with both iOS and Android. Also announced recently was the much more impressive (albeit more expensive), Pokémon GO app for Apple Watch.
