Niantic says Pokémon GO app for Apple Watch is still coming

Niantic is still working on developing a Pokémon GO app for Apple Watch despite rumors that the company had scrapped it, TechCrunch reports. Niantic promised the Apple Watch version of Pokémon GO “by the end of the year,” but with the end of the year approaching, an alleged email from a Niantic customer service agent appeared on Reddit, claiming the “port for the Apple Watch has been shelved” due to low demand. But Niantic quickly debunked the rumor, confirming that the Reddit image was a fake and adding that, “Development on Pokémon GO continues, as it has since before the Apple announcement.” No firm date has been offered, but the Pokémon GO Twitter page says an Apple Watch app is “coming soon.”
