List of Ranks

There are 6 Ranks in Pokemon UNITE, from Beginner to Master. There are Classes in beginner to expert ranks. Players can gain and lose Diamond ♦ points for winning and losing matches and for strong performance. Filling all slots and gaining another ♦ moves you up one Class, and if you are in the highest class, you move up one Rank.

The Master Rank does not have classes anymore, instead it has a rating system in which players are ranked based on their victory points.

Rank Class Victory Points
BeginnerBeginner 1 - 3 9
SuperSuper 1 - 4 12
HyperHyper 1 - 5 15
EliteElite 1 - 5 15
ExpertExpert 1 - 5 15

Ranking System and Performance Points

Ranked Points.jpg

When playing Ranked Matches, you will gain a rank depending on your performance during these matches. Your current rank will be decided by the Performance Point System and a Diamond System.

Diamond System

The main way to increase your rank is through the Diamond System, referred to in-game with the ♦ symbol. This system allows the player to increase their Class whenever they are able to gain another Diamond ♦ after filling the slots in their current trophy. This means a total of 4 Diamonds are required for each Class increase.

After passing the Beginner rank, players can also rank down when they lose matches. Upon losing a match with 0 Diamonds at the lowest Class of the Rank, the player will drop to the highest Class of the Rank below with all ♦ slots filled.

These are the ways in order to gain and lose Diamonds for your trophy.

Win a Game +1 Diamond ♦
Fill the Performance Point Bar +1 Diamond ♦
Lose a Game
(post-Beginner rank)
-1 Diamond ♦

Performance Point System

The Performance Point System favors player who actively play often and contribute well to their teams to raise up their ranks. This system rewards player with a Diamond ♦ every time they are able to fill up the Performance Point Bar.

Here are the points you gain through the Performance Point System.

*Scored 50-99 Points +5 Performance points
*Scored 100-199 Points +10 Performance points
*Scored 200+ Points +15 Performance points
