There are 6 Ranks in Pokemon UNITE's ranking system, ranging from Beginner to Master. With the exception of the Master rank tier, all other ranks are divided into Classes.
In addition to Ranks, there are sublevels called Classes that you need to climb to increase your rank. 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 with all ♦ filled, you move up one Rank tier.
You can check what rank your teammates are by the color of their border in the loading screen before the start of the game.
The lineup for the player profiles during the loading screen seems to be ordered from highest rank to lowest rank (left to right).
Master Rank isn't divided into classes anymore. Instead, it has a rating system in which players are ranked based on their victory points.
There are restrictions on matches players can join based on their ranks. This means that players might not be able to play together with their friends due to their differences in rank tiers being too far. Players can check the ranks they can join in the upper-right corner of the Lobby Screen.
Players who are playing solo ranked matches gets matched with other players to form a team of 5.
When playing ranked matches with friends, only 2, 3, and 5 players are allowed in a team. This means that having 4 friends with one 'outsider' in a team is not allowed.
There are currently two rewards for the first Ranked Season of Pokemon UNITE:
|Conditions||・Play 20 ranked matches.
・Reach Expert Rank at least once.
One of the rewards you can get is the Work Set Trainer outfit. You don't have to wait for the end of the season to get this - just reach the Expert rank and play 20 ranked matches and you'll get it instantly as a testament of your hardwork!
At the end of this season, you will be rewarded Aeos Tickets according to your highest rank reached during this season. Strive for the top rank and get the maximum reward!
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.
|Win a Game||+1 Diamond ♦|
|Fill the Performance Point Bar||+1 Diamond ♦|
Lose a Game
|-1 Diamond ♦|
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 in their respective rank tier 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. Losing a match with 0 Diamonds will cause you to drop a Class (with full ♦) , and 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.
|Rank||Max Performance Points|
|Rating 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 by scoring a large number of points, maintaining a win streak, or playing fairly.
Players will get the Sportsmanship Bonus if they do not idle in battle or get reported by other players.
|Scored 50-99 Points||+5|
|Scored 100-199 Points||+10|
|Scored 200+ Points||+15|
Players will get the Score Bonus by scoring a certain number of points per Ranked match. Players can only receive one of these rewards.
|2x Win Streak||+10|
|3x Win Streak||+20|
|4x Win Streak||+30|
|5x Win Streak||+40|
|6x Win Streak||+50|
Players will get the Win Streak Bonus if they maintain a win streak in Ranked matches.
The first requirement in order to play Ranked Matches is to be at least Trainer Level 6. You can easily achieve this by playing UNITE battles with players online in Standard Mode.
The second requirement in order to play Ranked Matches is to own at least 5 Pokemon in your roster. You can purchase extra Pokemon with Aeos Coins or Gems in the shop to increase your roster. Note that the Pokemon available through Free Rotation do not count towards your available Pokemon.
The final requirement is to have a decent amount of Fair Play Points. If you have 79 or lower Fair Play Points, you will be restricted from participating in Ranked Matches.
Fair Play Points: How to Get and Lose
It is important to understand that by playing a Ranked matches that you are essentially testing how well your own skills hold up against other players, and just like any test you'll want to study up first and fully understand the basics of the game. There are several things to be mindful of in a match, but here are some of the more important things to be aware of:
Having a basic understanding of these concepts will ensure that your game will go much more smoothly and increase your odds of success.
Deciding which Pokemon to use based on what your team needs is important, but so is the skill needed to use the Pokemon effectively. Nobody would want to play a ranked match with a teammate who's only used the Pokemon he/she chose once or twice, and improper use of the Pokemon can cost you the match.
While you need a minimum of 5 Pokemon to be eligible for Ranked Matches, it is highly recommended that you focus on practicing with 2-3 Pokemon be it in Practice Mode or Standard Matches. Understand how they play, what they're good for, what combos you can do with them, and what items you should give them. Ranked Matches are all about exhibiting mastery, and there is no room in this game mode for novices.
Teaming up with other like-minded players is a crucial necessity to guarantee a win-streak! If you're looking for other players to play with, you can start a thread in the Friend Request Board. If you're looking private scrims with other visitors or talk about the game in general, start a conversation in the General Discussion Board!
Pokemon UNITE is a team-based game. When you're up against players with the same skill level as you, the only thing that'll decide which team comes out on top is how well the teammates work with each other. Communication is key in this game, and it allows you to pull off a variety of stunts like coordinate attacks, take objectives, and apply pressure on the enemy team. This is especially important for ranking while in a Solo Queue. Work together with your team, and you'll be able to achieve victory.
Once you get to the higher ranks, you will start to notice that the ready up screen no longer displays the trainers faces.
From what we could tell, this is not a bug.
We suspect this is to prevent people from dodging certain players in Ranked Matches.
We enountered this feature as early as Expert Class .
