Reset Your Pokemon Go Plus: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you trying to reset your Pokemon Go Plus but feeling stuck? Whether it’s been a while since you last used the device or something suddenly stopped working, I understand how frustrating this can be.

In this article, I’ll provide an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide on how to reset your Pokemon Go Plus. With my help, you will have it up and running again in no time!

Understanding the Need to Reset Pokemon Go Plus

Pokemon Go Plus is a wearable accessory for the popular augmented reality (AR) game, Pokemon Go. It allows players to catch Pokemon and collect items without needing to have their phone out all the time.

However, sometimes it can malfunction or not connect properly with the player’s phone. In these cases, resetting is necessary.

To reset Pokemon Go Plus, simply hold down the button on its face until it turns solid blue.

Then release and press again until it vibrates and flashes white light. The device should now be reset and ready to reconnect with the player’s phone.

One reason why resetting may be necessary is if there are connectivity issues between the accessory and the player’s phone.

This can happen when multiple devices are connected via Bluetooth or if there are software updates that need to be installed on either device.

Understanding how to reset Pokemon Go Plus is important for players who want uninterrupted gameplay.

By following these simple steps, players can ensure that their device functions properly so they can continue catching ’em all.

Troubleshooting Common Issues with Pokemon Go Plus

Firstly, ensure that your device has Bluetooth enabled and is properly connected to your phone.

If this fails to work, try restarting both devices or resetting the gadget by pressing and holding down on the button for five seconds until it vibrates.

Remember also always check if there are firmware updates available for both the app and Pokemon Go Plus.

Secondly, another issue can be that after connecting with your phone not all nearby Pokemon or Pokestops register when they should be in range while playing with PokΓ©mon GO Plus.

In this case, try moving closer to them as sometimes radio interference or low battery could cause connectivity problems.

Thirdly, oddly enough batteries have been known to ship faulty from time-to-time so it’s good advice to test new batteries before installing them within Pokemon Go Plus – especially if you’re experiencing connection troubles frequently.

Performing a Hard Reset on Your Pokemon Go Plus Device

To execute this process, start by locating the small button on the side of the device and pressing it for five seconds until it vibrates.

Next, release the button and press again for another five seconds until you feel two consecutive vibrations indicating that a reset has been initiated.

It’s important to note that during this procedure all saved settings will be erased including paired devices and notification preferences.

After resetting your Pokemon Go Plus device, one should pair it up with their smartphone following its standard pairing method. If done appropriately, your device should reconnect with your game app in no time.

Performing a hard reset is commonly used as a troubleshooting step recommended by Nintendo support when encountering any connectivity-related problems involving Pokemon Go Plus devices.

Resetting can also help improve performance by clearing out unnecessary data and network connections. Though it shouldn’t be the first thing you do, it can be worth performing a hard reset if you’re having ongoing inssues.
