If you add the "batteries" widget to your widget drop down, you can see the battery percentage of the pencil, as well as the iPad. :)

When you pair your Apple Pencil with your iPad Pro, the battery status will be displayed with the iPad Pro's own battery widget. To pair the Apple Pencil with the iPad Pro, remove the cap and plug the Pencil's male Lightning connector into the iPad Pro's male Lightning port.

Connect the pencil to your iPad and swip down to see the notification which will show the pencil battery status, if you can not see it then you will need to add the battery status to the Notification Center by editing the notifications
