Why does the Gotcha fail to connect after a while? : TheSilphRoad

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/07

So I won’t forget the steps: [Wayback/] Why does the Gotcha fail to connect after a while? : TheSilphRoad

the usual tricks, including:
  • Unpair the device in bluetooth settings.
  • Pair the device in bluetooth settings, and then unpair it immediately after.
  • Disconnect the device in PoGo settings.
  • Restart Pokemon Go.
  • Quickly plug the Gotcha into the charger 10x.
  • Hold down the red circle on the device for 10 seconds whilst on the ‘Connection’ screen.
  • Restart mobile device.
  • Connect to Gotcha app and erase stats (not sure this actually does anything, but connecting to the app at least ensures the firmware is up to date).

User DJTernan advised clearing the game cache (Phone settings > Apps > Pokemon GO > Storage > Clear Cache (and also Clear Data)).

Gotcha is fully charged. I have reinstalled the app, restarted my phone, force closed app, cleared cache, unpaired / repaired / unpaired again, disconnected from PoGo settings, the lot.

“If you have connected your Go-tcha please ensure that you eject the Go-tcha from within the Pokémon Go application and ensure that it is forgotten within the Bluetooth setting (from all phones and devices).
Once the device has been disconnected please reset your Go-tcha by inserting and removing the Go-tcha from the charge cable in quick succession (10 times).
Once the device has reset please try to pair the Go-tcha within the Pokémon Go application.”
