Pokemon Might Get Away If Using Go Plus
Go Plus allows you to catch Pokemon without even having the app open, but it has the unfortunate drawback of only using regular Pokeballs. This means there's a chance the Pokemon might get away. If you'd rather play things safe, get Ultra Balls and catch Pokemon the old fashioned way!Check Out More About Pokemon Go Plus Here!
