i couldn't find it in a dictionary what it does means
gotcha = got + something ?
any help would be appreciated
It can mean "(I) caught you" or "I understand you". It depends on the context.

WoodwardGotcha = Got youCan also be used to mean "I put one over on you" as in you jump out of a box and yell "Gotcha" when you surprise somebody.

Some examples of the 'you's would be:
You and I. (U and I)
You're going? (Yer goin?)
I'm going to get you. (I'm gonna get cha)
I'm going to own you. (I'm gonna own joo)
I'm going to wait for you. (I'm gonna wait for ya)
It's quite confusing, but it really does sound very funny if you pronounce 'you' clearly if it's not the key word in the sentence.
People are waiting to help.
