Go-tcha for Pokemon GO Review : An Alternative to Pokemon GO Plus

Ever Heard of Go-tcha? We are pretty sure you have by now, but if you haven’t or probably have and want to know much about it, you are in the right place.

A competitor to the Official Niantic Band to the game, Pokemon GO+, Gotcha has much more to offer than what the latter does.

What is Go-tcha??

Considered as a spin-off of Pokemon GO+, Gotcha is a based on a fitness tracker called the Fitgo Prime (or sometimes the Primefit). The Go-tcha wristband helps you enjoy Pokémon Go on the move without looking at your smartphone! Yes its true, it helps you Catch Pokémon and collect items on the go. It provides the trainers on-screen and vibrates alerts. working with a tap the screen to grab the items. And with the ‘Auto-Catch’ mode on the Go-tcha and you don’t even need to respond – Go-tcha does it all! Collect Pokéballs, Potions, Eggs and other items at Pokéstops without you having to check your smartphone.

2. Looks and Display

Go-tcha Look and Display

Go-tcha looks very similar to the Mi Fitness band, with the package containing a removable strap and the main unit. The strap provided feels like its made of some average or cheap material. but you always have the option to replace the strap with Mi Silicon strap which easily available in the market.

The device uses a touch-sensitive button which cycles through several options, the display shows each option with one colours icons

  • Pokemon Capture – shown in the form of a Pokeball
  • Pokestop Spinning – shown in the form of Pokestop
  • Pokemon Found – shown with a question in the box

FeelEach of this options has a box below it with an X option to turn it on or off. It also has an option in the cycle to turn on/off the vibration.

Having used Go-tcha for about a week now, we can affirm that it is useful.

3. Battery Life and Charging

Go-tcha Charging

We had the following results at the end of the week:

A full charge takes approx. 1 hour and lasts for approx. 12 hours with continuous use. Standby time is approx. 48 hours

We had to mention charging separately in the Head Point because this comes with a unique charger, so if it ever gets damaged, it won’t be an easy task to finds its replacement.

In case, you’re damaged you charging cable you can get the new one from here:

4. Connectivity

Connectivity

Go-Tcha shows up connected to Pokemon GO on a smartphone as if it were a real-deal Pokemon GO Plus device. As far as the game knows, the Go-Tcha is a Pokemon GO Plus device made by Niantic.

It had a 92% successful connection rate and it lasts a great deal longer than expected, even solving the Go plus connectivity issue.

5. Got-cha vs Pokemon Go Plus

Let’s talk the real deal now. How does Got-cha fare against the GO Plus??

Go-tcha vs Pokemon Go Plus

Fairly speaking both the bands have their own sets of Pros and Cons, but looking at the usability, efficiency and the costs. We feel the Gotcha outweighs the Go Plus by a margin.

6. Some FAQs

  • Will this lead to an Account Ban?

The chances of that are extremely, extremely thin. Slim to the extreme.

  1. Thanks for the review!

  2. I really enjoy mine. I don’t use the auto catch feature since I feel that goes against the spirt of the game and still feel it is worth it. I also turn the vibrate off because I find it very annoying. Better battery life that way, too.
    There are a number of quirks with it, however. For one, if I have Facebook Messenger (full) installed on my device, the GoTcha doesn’t like to connect. FB Messenger Lite, however, is fine.
    Connecting it is a process- I go to settings then Go+, open that screen and tap the button on the Go-Tcha. This should get it to connect, but I have found that it usually does not about 90% of the time. After tapping the button on the Go-Tcha, I have to go back to the previous screen, then return to the Go+ screen once again for the Go-Tcha to show up.
    Also, it will disconnect every hour or so, which is apparently what it is designed to do. I can often reconnect at least once for another hour, but then after that I have to go back into the settings menu and eject/unpair the Go-Tcha, restart the game, the repeat the process. If my game has to be shut off for any reason (game freezes, crashes, etc.) then when the game reboots I cannot reconnect the Go-Tcha without going into settings, ejecting/unpairing the Go-Tcha, restarting the game, then going through the whole process again.
    Still, it’s worth it.

    Just be careful not to lose the Go-Tcha as they can sometimes pop out of the wrist band.

  3. does the Gotcha also only throws 1 red ball and the pokemon escapes other wise?

  4. No, Tries till it catches

  5. I am playing the game without catching any Pokemon only hatching eggs and giving gifts. Will this device help with hatching eggs? I have a bet with the kids in my Scout Troop that I can level up without enslaving a single Pokemon just raising them from hatchlings.

  6. Hello. Very interesting article but it’s hard to find pokewreck.com in search results.
    You are out of google’s top 10, so you can’t expect big traffic.
    You need hi quality backlinks to rank in serps. And you can get them for free, just search in google: forbesden’s
    tools

  7. Will this device become useless if I run out of red balls, or it will use blue/yellow balls as well?

  8. Prioritizing Pokémon catch is a con. Spinning spends less time and is necessary for having enough Poké Balls, otherwise the game gets stuck with the Pokémon around even when there are Pokéstops nearby that could be spun to keep catching. If they fixed this, I would buy it.

  9. Does it also collect candy from your buddy?

  10. YouTube has a wonderful commenting system for users to
