    I would like to have backup codes in case my Authiticator resets or I get a new phone. Does this plugin have the ability to generate them?

    No it does not, in such a situation you FTP or SSH to your account and remove/rename the wp-content/plugins/google-authenticator directory.
    Then you will be able to login without the 2. factor.

    Best regards
