We had a problem with a new Moto Z3 Play where after adding the Pokemon Go + (Gotcha in this case) to the Bluetooth menu, it would still not appear in the Pokemon Go Plus menu in Pokemon Go.
Well, the fix in this case was simple. Just REMOVE the PoGo+ device from your system Bluetooth menu on your android phone and go into the game. Suddenly the PoGo+ (Gotcha) appears!
Yup! That’s pretty silly! But it appears that if you already have it connected through the system menu on a Moto Z3 Play it won’t appear in game.
I don’t recall any such issue with my LG Q Stylo+ but maybe the low power bluetooth mode on the Z3 Play is different somehow.
