The game will be launched for iOS platform in December. The game will also have a "Toad Rally" mode that will allow players to take on friends and strangers in a ghost challenge mode. There will also be a selection of Mario-themed stickers for iMessage.

Since the launch, PokemonGo has been available on iOS platform but now the app makes its way to Apple Watch as well. Wondering how to game will look like on such a small screen? More important thing first - PokemonGo on Apple Watch will track the footsteps and calories burned in real time. This will be integrated in the PokemonGo game for hatching eggs (where you need to walk a certain distance). It will tap the wrist when you approach a PokeStop and even alert your about the a Pokemon appears around you. Apple Watch will even show the players how much they need to walk to hatch the eggs and allow them to take PokeStops as well.
