    Do anyone know what happened To the promised Pokémon Go app for Apple Watch? As far as I remember, it was supposed to launch late November, but no news from Apple?

    To be fair, shouldn't the news come from Nianti and not Apple?

    You are portably right about that, but since it was introduced at the keynote, I would guess that Apple has an interest in this as well!

    It'll come out right when Pokemon Go is no longer popular.

    Microsoft bought it just like they bought Bungie.

    (who here remembers that?)

    The lack of news coming from Niantic on all fronts, leads me to believe they are nowhere near ready to release a watch app or fix the current phone app for that matter.

    But hey Starbucks are now gyms! That you can never hold down

    That has already happened. Which is why they probably stopped development.

    Niantic said today that it's coming "soon"

    I'd definitely be interested in this app as a way to easily walk my buddy Pokémon. Doing 10km of walking a day without including exercise would go a long way to hatching those eggs and building those candy stores.

    But what impact would it have on battery life. The game still has a huge impact on the iPhone
