The Nintendo UK store has the Pokemon GO Plus device back in stock. Orders can be placed here. Just keep in mind that shipments won’t be going out until late March.

Niantic’s Pokémon GO never became available in China since its launch last summer and the reason for that is apparently the potential security risks that the Chinese state censor is foreseeing.

According to Reuters, Pokémon GO won’t be licensed in China until the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television evaluates the dangers of the augmented reality game in which players capture fictional creatures in the real world using a smartphone.

And they have reason to worry. Since Pokémon GO came out there has been a lot of news about car crashings, dead body findings and some types of crime related to it. Additionally, the censor is preoccupied about the implementation of Google Maps in order to track a player’s position, which is blocked in China.

When asked about this situation, a representative of Niantic told Kotaku that they are “focused elsewhere at the moment”. So it doesn’t seem like Niantic is obsessed about not being able to implement Pokémon GO in China.

Pokemon GO received a massive boost in the United States at the end of 2016. With Niantic promoting the game with a pair of events, it experienced its best single day on December 31 in terms of domestic gross revenue since July 18. Players spent roughly $4.9 million on that day, Sensor Tower reports. The week of December 26 was also Pokemon GO’s highest grossing in the U.S. since mid-July at roughly $22.1 million spent.

The end-of-year holiday events in Pokemon GO performed better than the Halloween and Thanksgiving events. It also outperformed the initial introduction of Gen 2 Pokemon in early December.

As we closed out the week that was 2016, Pokemon GO was the highest grossing app in the United States. It beat out Clash of Clans and Clash Royale during that period.
