Say Goodbye to Pokémon GO on Apple Watch

Share This:

It’s been a great run, but the time has come to say goodbye to Pokémon GO on Apple Watch. On July 1st, 2019, Niantic will no longer be supporting the app on Apple Watch devices.

For all of you Apple Watch trainers out there who have enjoyed playing Pokémon GO on your device, we want to tank you for your dedication and enthusiasm for this game. It’s been a great experience having you onboard and participating in our game.

If you currently have Pokémon GO installed on your Apple Watch, we suggest that you take the necessary steps to disconnect it from the app before July 1st. To do this, go into the App Store and search for “Pokémon GO”. Once you have located it, scroll down until you see “Connected Apps”. Under this section click “Apple Health” and select “Disconnect from Pokémon Go” to make sure that the app is no longer linked with your Apple Watch device.

We understand that some of our players may be disappointed about this news but we hope that it will not stop them from enjoying Pokémon GO in other ways such as playing with friends or joining challenges through different platforms like Raid Battles or Field Research Quests. We are also constantly coming up with new updates and events so that our players can continue to enjoy their play experience even without an Apple Watch device!

Thank you again for all of your support over the years while using Pokémon GO on your Apple Devices. We wish you all the best in your future adventures!

Can Pokémon Go Be Played on Apple Watch?

No, you will no longer be able to play Pokémon GO on Apple Watch devices as of July 1, 2019. Niantic, the game’s developer, has officially ended support for the Apple Watch. After this date, trainers using Apple Watches will no longer be able to connect their device to the game.

Connecting an Apple Watch to Pokemon Go

To connect your Apple Watch to Pokémon Go, you need to first open the Apple Health app. Next, tap on your profile image in the right corner. Then, select Apps uner Privacy. Finally, make sure that Pokémon Go is listed as a connected application. If it is not listed there, you can scroll down and tap on the “Connect” button next to Pokémon Go to activate it. Once it is connected, you can start tracking your progress in-game with your Apple Watch!

Linking Pokemon to Apple Health

To link your Pokemon to Apple Health, start by opening the Apple Health app. Next, tap on Sources and ensure that Pokemon GO is listed as a connected source. If it is not listed, click on Add Data Source and select Pokemon GO from the list of available sources. Once you have selected Pokemon GO, the app will ask for permission to read and write data to your Apple Health account. Follow the prompts to complete the linking process, then you will be ready to go!

Using a Step Counter with Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go works with the built-in step counters and activity tracking services of both Apple Health on iPhone and Google Fit on Android. When enabled, these services allow your phone to track how many steps you take, how far you travel, and other pertinent metrics associated with physical activity. This data is then shared with Pokemon Go’s Adventure Sync feature, which alows you to earn rewards in the game based on the amount of physical activity you do.

Troubleshooting Adventure Sync in Pokemon Go

Adventure Sync is a feature in Pokemon Go that allows you to record your steps even when the game isn’t open. However, in order for it to work properly, you must have certain settings enabled on your device. Firstly, make sure that Location Services are enabled and set to High Accuracy mode. Then, ensure that Activity Detection is enabled in Google Fit (Android) or Health App (iOS). Finally, make sure that Background App Refresh is enabled in your device’s settings. If you have all of these settings configured correctly, then Adventure Sync shuld be able to turn on and be functional.
