Match Is Not Recorded

Pokemon UNITE - Practice Area - Match is Not Recorded.png

Since matches in the Practice Area are not real battles, the result of the match, points scored, and knock downs will not be recorded in your Battle Record. This means that you can leave any time without any penalties.

What is Training Mode?

Pokemon UNITE - Practice Area

Training mode allows players to practice each Pokemon without participating in online UNITE Battles. It lets you tweak various game settings like turning on invincibility, Wild Pokemon spawns, or changing Pokemon levels.

Only Includes 1V1 Battles

Pokemon UNITE - Practice Area - 1v1 Battle

You can only use the training mode alone, which means that you cannot play with friends in this mode. This is especially hard for players who want to practice with a Pokemon that primarily uses heal or buff moves on teammates.

It also lets you play against only one practice partner, which limits your options for simulating fights.

All Pokemon are Available

Pokemon UNITE - Practice Area Pokemon Selection

The training mode lets you play with any Pokemon from the roster, regardless if you have its license or not. This is great for testing out Pokemon before you buy them with Aeos Coins or Gems.
