The Poke Ball Plus will be able to carry one of your Pokemon inside it to accompany you! Now, when you are walking and pass by a Pokestop, the Poke Ball Plus' autospin function will make your Pokemon spin the Pokestop for you!

Use This Function Right Out Of The Box

The Poke Ball Plus will automatically have Mew inside it when you take it out of the box. You can automatically use the function when you first turn it on to make Mew spin Pokestops for you!

Autospin Feature Exclusive To Poke Ball Plus
