Wild Pokemon Spawn Location
Using the Practice Area is a great way to know where Wild Pokemon spawn points are located. Take note of their spawn times so you can formulate a Farming Route.

Explore the Map

Training mode allows you to freely explore Remoat Stadium and get better map knowledge. Know how to effectively navigate around walls and obstacles, or check out where tall grass are placed to get more info on ganking opportunities.

Test Pokemon Builds

No skill cooldown

This mode is also a great way test out the different moves your Pokemon has in its arsenal. Moreover, use it to test different Held Items and Battle Items that you have unlocked or purchased.

You can even break down the damage by the numbers by attacking one of the Substitute Dolls found on the map!

Training Mode Substitute Doll

Substitute Doll.png
The Substitute Doll acts as a training dummy in the Practice Arena. Go near it to see helpful data on your Pokemon's stats or attack it to see how much damage your are dealing.

Note that the Substitute Doll copies your stats but has different internal values. This means that the damage value of the Substitute Doll will be different from the damage you do to your opponent.

Substitute Doll Location

All Substitute Doll Location
Near Purple base.
Near Orange base.
Top Lane

Substitute Doll Values Explanation

Hindrance Length Displays how long the Pokemon was affected by a Status Effect.
Total Damage Displays how much damage your Pokemon has done from a combination of Basic Attacks and Pokemon Moves.
Basic Attack damage Shows how much damage your basic attacks dealt.
Move Damage Shows how much total damage your Pokemon Move has done.
Damage per Second Breaks down how much total damage you do, from a combination of Basic Attacks and Pokemon Moves, by the seconds.
HP Displays how much base health your Pokemon has. This number will not change when you attack it since it's only supposed to reflect your stat values.
Defense The Defense stat reduces the amount of Physical Damage a Pokemon Moves does to the Substitute Doll. Moves that reduce Defense will not change the stat value showed on the Substitution Doll.
Sp. Def Short for Special Defense.This stat reduces the amount of damage the Substitute Doll receives from Special Attacks. Moves that reduce Special Defense will not change the stat value showed on the Substitution Doll.

The Substitute Doll has two sets of info that can be displayed - Data and Stats. The figures it provides reflect the base values of your Pokemon, which is why using moves that reduce Defense or Sp.Defense will not change the numbers on the Substitute Doll. Note that that the values reset after 7 seconds.

How to Quit Training Mode

How to Quit Training Mode
1 Press the + button on your controller.
2 Select "Settings" on the menu.
3 Press X to leave.

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?

Select Practice Area.png
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

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.

Play Characters without Pokemon License

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.
