There are a few conditions that you need to check:

  • Batteries fully charged or at full power
  • Wii remote is aligned properly.
If the batteries are dying, that might be a cause of the jumpiness because it'll have trouble maintaining a signal lock with the sensor.

Make sure you have the sensor in the right place (above or below the TV as you specify in the settings).

Make sure you have the Wii remote sensitivity settings correct too. All of these things are in the settings menu.

Something you may want to check - Do you only notice it at certain times? I had a problem with a remote performing erratically several years ago and it was driving me crazy. The remote would work perfectly sometimes and go crazy other times. I noticed that I only had problems at night, when I had my lamp turned on. When I turned the light off, everything worked fine. Turns out that I had replaced the incandescent bulbs in my fixtures with compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFL). The CFL was putting out a frequency that interferred with the signal from the remote. I think this is only a problem with certain types of CFL's (mostly older ones.) Maybe you have some CFL's that are interferring with the signal.

sounds like you need to go to your control panel and go to mouse and go to pointer options and check pointer precision, uncheck snap to or uncheck display pointer trails. Your problem will be in mouse and what you have checked or not checked.

Pokemon Battle REvolution rental can't start the game


it could be simply that the remotes are not turned on.or it could be that they are not pointing it at the motion sensor or they are standing too close.
I would advise to stand atleast 5 feet away from the screen
note that the blue pokeball is the wii remote pointer

My curser (Pointer)flickers


The battery could be dying, but since it works fine during the game, I am not sure.

It could be infrared interference from sunlight or other source.

Also different games seem to have different ways of handling input from the Wii remote.
