Pokémon Go Plus Wristbands Are A Hot Commodity; Resale Prices Seen At $250

Pokémon Go Plus Wristbands Are A Hot Commodity; Resale Prices Seen At $250 - Amazon.com, Inc. NASDAQ:AMZN, eBay Inc. NASDAQ:EBAY

Investors and traders are fully aware that Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) NTDOY 0.4% has a winner in its new Pokémon Go game. The success of the augmented reality mobile game has resulted in a shortage of the game's $35 wrist-worn accessory called the Pokémon Go Plus.

The wearable wristband notifies users of nearby Pokémon characters that can be collected. The device vibrates and a user can tap a button on the wearable to throw a Poké ball and catch a Pokémon lurking nearby.

The game itself does not send push notifications to a user's locked screen, and the only way to be notified of a Pokémon's appearance is to make use of the battery saver mode and leave the app running.

The wearable could be bought on eBay Inc EBAY 1.09%, but sellers are asking for anywhere from $100 to $250 per unit.

Shares of Nintendo's ADR-listed issue were trading higher by more than 1 percent at $28.02 while the Tokyo-listed issue gained 12.73 percent to close at 22,840.00 yen during the Asian trading session.
