Pokemon Go Plus Via Amazon

Although the Pokemon Go Plus is included in the store's product page, it is currently listed as unavailable. According to Amazon, there is no definite time when the product will be back in stock. Customers are advised to click on the Email Me to receive notification when the device is back in stock.

Pokemon Go Plus Via eBay

According to reports, some eBay users have listed the devices they have pre-ordered on the sales site already. This means they promise a buyer to pass the item once they receive it, even if they do not have the item yet.  Buyers are also advised to be careful when making purchases on this site, as there are scammers that have been reportedly taking advantage of the platform.

Pokemon Go Plus is reportedly being offered at $109 on eBay, which is a high jump from its standard retail price of $34.99, Bustle reported. Watch Pokemon GO Plus Device: Everything you Need to Know video here.
