Pokémon GO Plus+ connectivity failures spark refund demands

Trainers, if you’ve recently faced issues with your Pokémon GO Plus+ not connecting, know that you’re part of a growing number of players dealing with the same headache. Some are even saying that their devices have completely stopped working.

Just a few days ago, players started reporting that their Pokémon GO Plus and Plus+ devices are failing to link with their smartphones. They have attempted various solutions including game restart, device reboot, and cycling through known fixes, but none have worked.

There’s also some chatter suggesting that Niantic may be discontinuing support for these accessories. But let’s hold off on jumping to conclusions; it’s still just speculation at this point. There’s a chance that the issue is on Niantic’s end.

Players are clearly unhappy with the situation, and some are seeking refunds. If you’re among them, you’ll need to contact Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, or the store where you purchased the device. Neither Niantic nor Pokémon GO will assume responsibility for these connectivity issues. In fact, the official Pokémon GO Plus+ website explicitly states that not all smart devices will be compatible, even if they meet the minimum system requirements.

For those looking to make a warranty claim, your best bet is to head over to Nintendo’s support site for instructions. Pokémon GO Plus + is covered by Nintendo’s Limited Warranty.

So, while these devices are optional for enhancing your Pokémon GO experience, it’s understandable to expect them to work as advertised. We’ll keep an eye on the situation and update you as we learn more.

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. Mine stopped for a short time, wouldn’t even charge or come on. I pushed the tiny button on the back with a paper clip and it fixed the issues for me. I know turning on and connecting is two different things but won’t hurt to try.

  2. It’s so slow and haven’t even caught me a shiny yet. Right now I’m just gonna stick to my gotcha, which is still way better and faster.
