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.
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.
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.
