- After a firmware update via the app, it can function as a digital watch on the default screen
- Battery life is amazing! I just did an 8 hour event and the battery was only down to 60%. How do I know? ITS ON THE SCREEN!!!!
- Quicker auto catch. It doesn't go through the 3 shake ceremony like the other Go-tchas or the Go+
- Faster response time with auto-spinning stops when compared with previous models
- Looks more like a watch and less like a toy. I like playing Pokemon GO as stealth as possible.
- USB charging
- The vibration isn't as strong as previous models (probably to save on battery life) so when you're out of pokeballs or your inventory is full, you can't tell immediately because the vibration pattern is so faint.
- You have to update the firmware to sync the time. You can't just do that standalone or right out of the box.
- When shiny checking, it takes this model way longer to lock back onto a Pokemon after I see it's not a shiny.
- Silence watch alerts is pointless and confusing. If this is enabled, it negates whatever setting you have for vibration. Without any further developments to do more with this - beyond Pokemon GO - I wish i could permanently hide it.
- The color screen is neat, but it adds nothing in terms of experience or gameplay
- The band is difficult to remove to charge this thing, but that beats the unit popping out of the band and getting lost like the OG model.
(UPDATED) NEW android app specifically for this product.. works much better and updates.. also date and time now work and the device now has a watch face mode..
NOTE: to ENSURE this DEVICE STAYS CONNECTED and works to its fullest potential in the POKEMON GO app MAKE SURE BATTERY SAVER is OFF and adventure sync is turned on. Battery saver WILL disable Bluetooth through the app and cut your connection to the device, this is a Pokemon go thing not any fault of the device.
For those experienced with the prior Go-tcha devices, I can tell you that this device pair up with the app much more crisply
1] It works with Android & iOS
2] This device can be finicky. The entire line of Go-tcha devices share this in common.
Most of the negative reviews come from the finickiness of these devices. Once you've had some experience with the device, and have put in the patience of understanding its finickiness, you'll be fine and enjoy it.
3] Who/what is this device for in relation to the Pokemon Go game?
I would say this device is for:
>Brand new players (its actually GREAT for new players)
>Experienced players looking to mass catch common Pokemon for either Pokemon quality and/or for evolving (mostly) common Pokemon through mass catching and exchanging Pokemon for candy.
...Its also great for ANYONE that wants the process of spinning Pokemon stops to be automated.
My advice for established players, and function point notes about these devices :
> DO NOT allow the device to attempt to catch Pokemon that are new to you as Pokedex entries, or Pokemon thats success of catching is very important to you. This device has no strategy. It just lobs out a few balls in an effort to catch Pokemon until the Pokemon is either caught or runs. Higher CP and tougher over-all Pokemon, tend to be lost (aka they run) to this devices automated process. So hand catch any Pokemon that are important to you.
> This device can take a few seconds to register a Pokemon or PokeStop for capture or spinning, it does not react as fast as an observant player.
> When this device is set to catch only new Pokemon, the process is not rapid. It often takes a number of seconds to filter through all available Pokemon until it finds one it recognizes as new to your Pokedex.
> This device generally will prioritize spinning available Pokestops over catching Pokemon.
> This device can take a bit longer to spin Pokestops if a lot of Pokemon are surrounding it.
> This device will de-sync after a few minutes if your item bag is full and your Pokemon storage is full.
> If you are using the device for mass catching while driving or biking through heavily Pokemon inhabited areas, plan to go through a LOT of Pokeballs. To the tune of 50 - 70 balls an hour.
[ Android device start-up & re-sync guide ]
Step 1 : Charge the device for about 1.5 hours
a) This device plugs directly into a standard USB port (for charging), unlike all previous Go-tcha devices
b) This device will plug into your charging source (PC usb or cell phone wall adapter) FACE DOWN
Step 2 : Make sure your phones bluetooth is on
Step 3 : Download & install the Go-tcha Evolve app from the Android/Google Play Store.
Step 4 : Open the Go-tcha app, wait for the app to instruct you to activate the unit and then push the little red button on the Go-tcha device.
If the unit is working properly, it will inform you that its found the Go-tcha device, it will verify that the device is updated and lastly it will tell you that the device is ready.
Step 5 : After Step 4, you'll be presented with a feature options menu for the device. Set those options to your preference. If you are a NEW player, I recommend setting the device to all options on except vibrate & watch face.
Q: "Why no vibrate?"
A: The built quality of these device can be questionable, namely interior soldering. Vibrations only put durability stress on a device with questionable construction effort. The added bonus is that you'll get much better battery life from the device with vibrate off.
No watch face is for power savings and easier general use of the device.
After you've chosen your settings, give the phone and device a minute or so to synchronize your settings.
Step 6 : Close the Go-tcha app completely
Step 7 : Open the Go-tcha app, press the red button on the Go-tcha, and wait for the app & device to pair and the options menu to appear with your chosen settings listed. This ensures that the Go-tcha is updated and is functioning with the settings you've chosen
Step 8 :
Open Pokemon Go.
Hit the red/white menu ball icon.
Hit the Settings icon in the upper right-hand corner.
Scroll down to Pokemon GO Plus, and choose it.
While on the Pokemon GO Plus menu, push the little red button on the Go-tcha device. After a few seconds you should see the device appear under "Available Device", tap it when it appears and wait a minute or so. You might have to attempt this a few times. It should fully sync up, and you should be presented with some very basic easily skippable instruction pop-ups from Pokemon Go.
Return to your Pokemon Go home screen, and under the weather and compass icons on the top right of your game, you should now see the Pokeball icon with a green center and white radio waves emanating from it.
When the icon is fully colored and green, the device & Pokemon Go app are synchronized and active.
> Any time you want to change the settings of the Go-tcha within the Go-tcha app AFTER having paired and used it in Pokemon GO, unpair it with the Pokemon GO app:
Home screen > Settings > Pokemon Go Plus > Find the device entry > Tap the underlined upward pointing arrow icon beside the device listing. It should then vanish. Now the Go-tcha app can find and pair with the device again. Just re-follow Step 4+ in the original set-up guide to re-pair.
> Periodically the device can unpair. Usually within an hour of use. This is not an issue with these devices, its a setting on the Pokemon Go servers. When this happens, tap that Pokeball icon under weather and the compass on your Pokemon Go home screen. You should see it state that its searching for the device. Hit the red button on the device. After 20 seconds to a minute, they should re-pair. You're back up and running.
This device can have its offered features manually set absent use of the app if needed.
To turn a feature On or Off, get to the setting screen for that setting and long press the red button. After you've turned a feature on or off, just tap the red button to head to the next setting.
The features should appear in the following order:
1] Pedometer . Long pressing resets the step count
2] Clock Face
3] Auto catch KNOWN Pokemon
4] Auto catch unknown Pokemon
5] Auto spin Pokestops & Gyms
7] Silent Mode
8] Bluetooth pairing
Vibration is barely noticeable, you can more HEAR it than feel it. A tiny irritating mosquito-ish sounding buzz
You want to swap to another app while Pokemon Go runs in the background? Tough luck, the device will IMMEDIATELY disconnect itself. You have to have Pokemon go on the main screen at all times if you want the device to work
USB charge port is a wonderfully integrated idea....if it wasn't so cheap looking and VERY prone to damage and breakage from it's thin and bent design
It's twice as thick as the original gotcha, looks like a huge bulky wrist watch,
Some pros though
-I like the clock face
-Battery life indicator
-Comfortable to wear
-Looks discreet and more professional than the gotcha
But until they come out with an update to fix the issue of disconnecting the moment Pokemon Go is pushed to background running, STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS DEVICE. Returning immediately,
Top reviews from other countries
One of them is paired with my Samsung Galaxy A20 and the other on my A70 and they're great, connect first time and stay connected for an hour before you have to reconnect.
You can catch Pokemon and spin stops while the phone screen is off too so it saves battery life.
I've got the original gotcha and these are far superior.
It comes if a very small package with limited instructions just a card with a QR code on it to allow you to download the app that you need to configure the device. The first thing you have to do is charge it. There is no charge cable but it has a USB connector built into the device that is covered by the strap. You have to pull the strap off gently at 45 degree angle. It is quite stiff and feels counter intuitive like you are about to break it. So far no problems though. You need to plug it into a USB socket to charge and you need to put it in the right way up (it will fit both ways). When it is the right way up it will display a charging animation on the screen.
Once it is charged you need to configure it via the associated app which is easily downloaded. Run the app press the button on the front of the screen and it will pair and initially download a software update. Once this is done you can select the options that you want for the device these are; auto catch known Pokémon, auto catch unknown Pokémon, Auto spin Pokestops, enable vibrate, silent mode, enable watch face and dark theme. The app will also set the time which you can choose to display along with the number of steps you have taken.
Once the device is configured you need to close down the app before opening Pokémon Go. It does not seem to like having the Gotcha app and the Pokémon Go app running at the same time. Once in the Pokémon Go app it is very simple to setup go into settings and add a Pokémon Go Plus device. It will look for and should display Pokémon Go Plus as an available device. You might be asked to press the button on the front of the screen again to initiate the connection. Once you are connected it will get to work doing what you asked it to do when you configured the device. Once it is initially setup you will get a Pokémon Go Plus icon on the main screen of the Pokémon Go app and you only need to tap this in order to connect. Please note there seems to be a parameter in the Pokémon Go App itself that requires you to re-connect Go Plus devices every hour so if you are using it for longer than an hour expect to re-connect at least once.
So how does it work? Very well as soon as you connect the device sets about hoovering up any Pokémon in the vicinity and if selected it will auto spin Pokestops. The display shows when a Pokémon is nearby with a x2 logo if it is a known Pokémon and a ?? logo for unknowns. It will also show a Pokestop logo when it spins a stop and it will then tell you the number of items you have received from the stop.
Be aware of the following. Firstly it only deploys standard red Pokémon balls. It will not use great or ultra balls. I would have liked to see an option to allow you to use these ball types when you run out of standard balls but I can see why they would limit this. Secondly expect if you are using this device in a well populated area expect to burn 100-200 Pokeballs per hour. So you will need to have plenty of space in your item bag and plenty of available Pokémon storage. Thirdly. It seems to prioritise catching Pokémon’s over spinning stops so If you want to use the device just for filling up your item bag I would recommend turning off the auto catch options. Even when the auto catch functionality is off it will still alert you to the presence of Pokémon’s. Finally it does seem to be very good at spinning stops whilst driving.
All in all I am very satisfied with it at the moment. Time will tell if it is durable enough particularly the charge point. The pedometer function seems to be well off to me but I didn’t purchase it for this function so it doesn’t matter to me. There is room for improvement to the configuration app and the options if offers hence the 4* rating.
I returned the watch before the Pokemon Go latest update (October 2019) and since updating my Pokeball + does not connect properly, I am led to believe any connectivity issues are with Niantic
I do want a replacement of this watch however I feel it is over priced for the following reasons:
1) I've had this product maybe a week and yesterday I turned it on to find this green screen, I have really small wrists so I don't wear on my wrist and as I work from home, I use it to spin the stop at my house and collect Pokemon while I work so it's only been outside less than a handle of times
2) While it still works, it seems to forget it is still connected after a while, which is fine, but it doesn't tell you that the session had ended like the Pokeball +, so you have to manually disconnect and reconnect
3) The pedometer is inaccurate and pointless, there's no way to turn it off, it's the first screen you see and another step to getting to the settings you really want
4) No way to change the time, I'm guessing there will be the option when they release an app
5) The watch strap is incredibly hard to get off to charge, I imagine it would snap over time
