Win: We've got five Pokémon Go Plus gadgets to give away

Catch one of 'em all.

Fancy some brand new Nintendo hardware? No, not NX. We have five Pokémon Go Plus gadgets to give away!

The wearable accessory syncs with your phone to give you Pokémon Go notifications without having to take your mobile out your pocket. You can even catch Pokémon and collect loot from PokéStops with a simple button press.

The Pokémon Go Plus launches this Friday, 16th September priced £34.99 - but you can nab one yourself for free.

Of course, it's not quite as simple as that. You'll have to get a little creative to win your prize.

To celebrate the launch of Pokémon Sun and Moon later this year, we'd like you to design a new tropical form for a classic Pokémon and explain its changes.

For example, we've already seen how Exeggutor have turned into a palm tree in Sun and Moon's Alolan region due to the warmer, sunnier climate. Slightly disturbingly, we've also seen how Rattata have turned into a darker, nocturnal version in response to the region's rat-munching predator.

As an example, here's Piña Colada Gengar.

He's adapted into a less scary, more chilled out form because he now likes Alolan piña coladas and getting caught in the rain.

And that's it. Put your creative skills to use in pen or on Photoshop then send us a pic of your design, and a note explaining it, to:

We'll judge entries on style, humour, and knowledge of Pokémon. The closing date is 8am UK time next Monday, 19th September. Best of luck!
