pokemon gotcha review

With the Pokemon GO Gotcha device, there’s no need to even pick up your phone to play the game anymore. This little device, which looks like a Fitbit-style fitness tracker and costs less than the official Pokemon Go Plus, connects to your phone, recognizes your location, and can perform actions like catching Pokemon and spinning Pokestops automatically.

When paired with the Pokémon Go app, it shows on-screen color animation notifications and vibration alerts when there are nearby Pokemon or PokeStops to spin. The device also acts as a pedometer and can display your progress toward your daily steps goal.

To set it up, first plug the device into a power source via USB and then pair it to your smartphone. Once you have a good connection, it will show you your location on the map and notify you when Pokemon are close by. To make it even more convenient, you can select 'auto-catch' mode which will allow you to play without ever touching your phone!

Currently, the device can only capture Pokemon that are visible to your phone and will not attempt to catch any that aren’t. You will also need regular Pokeballs to use, not Great or Ultra balls, so you’ll want to be sure you have plenty on hand. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that Niantic could decide at any time to block third-party devices and ban players who use them, although this seems unlikely.
