We’ll be seeing Pokemon GO very, very soon. If all goes well, it’ll be out by the end of the month.

Pokemon GO will be compatible with iOS upon release, after you apply an update. With Android though, it’s less clear. Nintendo UK’s product page mentions that as of this month, compatibility with phones using Android “is under development.”

Here’s what the page says in full:

For use with the Pokémon GO app, by Niantic Inc. App update dedicated for Pokémon GO Plus required (planned for 2016). It will also require a compatible smartphone.*

* Compatible Smartphones:

Pokémon GO Plus will be compatible with iPhone 5/5c/5s/SE/6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus and operating systems iOS 8 – 9.

As of July 2016, the Pokémon GO Plus compatibility with phones using the Android operating system is under development.

A curious inclusion there! Will Pokemon GO Plus not be ready for Android at launch?
