This article explains how to surrender a match in Pokemon UNITE for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn how to surrender, what the disadvantages of surrendering are, and when to surrender.
The option to surrender is only available 5 minutes after the game starts. If the game does not go well for the team, consider first to try to turn things around.
Press the + button to open the Battle Record screen. Be sure to go back to base first before bringing up the menu, it takes up a lot of space in the screen.
After pressing the + button, press the - button to open the Settings screen.
At the Settings screen, press the X button to initiate the surrender. A total of four (4) votes, including the player who initiated the surrender, are needed to successfully surrender.
When the vote to surrender fails, it goes on a 40 second timer before it can be selected again. Disconnecting from the match while voting for a surrender causes the team to be at a disadvantage, and can ruin other player's games.
Before surrendering, be considerate towards other players in the team; they might not have given up yet. Find ways to turn things around and win the game.
When playing Ranked Matches, losing a game decreases player rank by 1. Surrendering has the same effect as losing a game, so think of ways to turn things around first before deciding.

When voting for a surrender, a pop-up appears in the upper-right hand corner of the screen. Although small, this still blocks a part of the other player's screen, making it harder to see their surroundings.
The only benefit of surrendering is being able to start another match quickly. When things get out of hand and losing is inevitable, surrendering is the best option. This is so players can make up for the previous game.
A clear reason to surrender is when there is a huge difference between the enemy Pokemon level and the team's level. Higher level Pokemon have access to more powerful moves, and their unite move. In this scenario, the enemy simply overpowers the team.
The amount of goals captured indicates how far the enemy team is or how far behind the allied team is in terms of points. This is a good time to surrender.
Defeating Zapdos grants benefits to the team that defeats it, making goals vulnerable is the most notable. At this point, the enemy team is buffed up and can overwhelm the allied team. This is another to surrender.

Much like other online games, there can be bad mannered players that demoralizes the rest of the team, and just ruins the game entirely. They often forcibly feed the enemy team, or does not cooperate with teammates. At this point, it is best to just surrender and start another match.
Sometimes bad mannered players use voice chat to bully others. However, there is a way to mute or ignore players who abuse voice chat.

Having teammates that are AFK, or are disconnected from the game places the team at a huge disadvantage. There is nothing the rest of the team can do about this other than to wait for them to come back if ever they do. However, even if players come back, the enemy is mostly likely too far ahead. In any case, surrendering is the best option.
