Pokémon GO is coming to the Apple Watch. Apple announced the news at an event on Wednesday with help from Niantic, the company behind the augmented reality mobile game.

Niantic says Pokémon GO for the Apple Watch will seamlessly blend the game with the fitness tracking capabilities offered by Apple’s wearable. The company also revealed a special watch face complication that can show how much longer you’ll need to walk before hatching an egg. The app can tell you when you’re close to a wild Pokémon, gym or Pokéstop.

Pokémon GO for the Apple Watch will ship before the end of the year according to Niantic. The company also said that its Pokémon Plus wearable will finally ship next month.
