  3. Why does the pokeball plus stop spinning all of a sudden?

I have a Pokemon inside. I walk up just within distance of a gym. It spins it. I walk around sim more, catch Pokemon.

Then i return to the gym after 5 minutes but no auto spin this time. I get super close. Still nothing. I have to manually do it.

Anyone know why this happens?

I'm wondering if it's because i fast catch.

Is it sad to catch manually? Or is catching also turned on? If you manually catch while the Plus tries to catch the same Pokémon it freezes for a bit.

Otherwise, the 5 minutes weren't entirely done yet perhaps.

I have it set so only I catch manually, not the ball.

And the 5 minutes were definitely up. On both times i was able to spin the stop manually myself. The second time I tested it I walked up to the gym a bit longer than 5 minutes, and still no worky.

I think it's the fast catching that will make the ball unresponsive.

In my experience using the PB+, it takes a minute or 2 for it to start auto spin/catching after you play manually

It would be nice if the PB+ worked while you were also playing

Do you use fast catching?

Also, do you have it set to both catch and spin?

Yeah, I use fast catching, but even then the ball struggles

I have the ball set to auto catch and spin, sometimes one or the other depending on ball supply

If you have the ball set to catch Pokemon and you click on a Pokemon in the overworld, then sometimes that causes the Pokeball Plus to get laggy. Usually if the Pokemon you caught had already been detected by the Pokeball Plus.

Anywho, I find that fast catching works again with having the ball set to spin Pokestops.

Are you still having issues?

Not really, it's like the lag you describe, when you click on a mon it causes the Ball to stop momentarily but will start up again after you're back on the map

The ball catches automatically? I thought it only spins automatically.
The best way to avoid disappointment is to not expect anything from anyone.
