After finding all of the clowns and picking up your shiny new Pocketch as a reward you will probably dig into the menu and see what fancy features it brings to the adventure. You will find that there isn’t a whole lot of use for this item at the moment and want to close it off, but wait, it won’t go away! Surely this is not going to be permanent?
Thankfully it is not. The Pocketch takes up a large portion of the screen and when you have no use for it, it does become quite annoying when it is getting in the way.
To dismiss the Pocketch, press and hold the R button. It takes a second or two but it will eventually dismiss the watch from the screen and you will have all of the space on the screen back to being dedicated to your explorations.
