Wii U Pro Controller via USB Cable Raspberry Pi Model B

I have recently installed RetroPie on my Raspberry Pi B which is running Raspbian. I have started Emulation Station and have come to the screen where it welcomes me and says "no gamepads detected". I have connected my Wii U Pro Controller to the Pi with the USB cable that came with the Pro Controller. However, it is not detecting it. I have pressed the sync button but that doesn't do anything either. Help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

The USB port on the Wii U pro controller is just a charging port and doesn't do data. If you want to connect to the Pi via bluetooth you'll have to go into the bluetooth settings of the RetroPie. While you can get this to work, I highly suggest you get a PC wireless controller adapter. I tried hooking my Wii U controller to the Pi's bluetooth and it worked at first. But very soon I started experiencing ghosting to the point I couldn't even play the games. Using the adapter, I synced it very easily to my controller and Emulation Station recognized the controller very easily.
