How to Delete Pairing from a Nintendo Switch Console

Instructions on how to delete the Poké Ball Plus accessory pairing from the Nintendo Switch console.

Complete These Steps:

The controller pairing can be deleted in several ways:

From within System Settings.

  1. Attach the Joy-Con controllers to the Nintendo Switch console.
  2. From the HOME Menu, select “System Settings” > “Controllers and Sensors” > “Disconnect Controllers”.
  3. Hold down the “X” Button on the right Joy-Con until the blue circle is fully illuminated.
    • The attached Joy-Con controllers can be used with the console. All other controllers will need to be paired again.

From Poké Ball Plus directly.

  1. Ensure that Poké Ball Plus is not connected to another device, such as Nintendo Switch or Pokémon Go Plus.
    • If it is already paired to a Nintendo Switch console, turn off the console or put it into sleep mode during this process.
  2. While Poké Ball Plus is on standby (the LED is off), press and hold down for at least five seconds the Top Button and the control stick button.
    • The LED will flash green, yellow, or red depending on the remaining battery charge.
  3. While the LED is flashing, press the Top Button once. The LED will then turn solid blue.
  4. While in this state, press and hold down for at least five seconds the Top Button and the control stick button.
    • Poké Ball Plus will vibrate to indicate that the information has been deleted.
