This is a guide on how to score and the best times to score goals in Pokemon UNITE. Read on to see tips and tricks on how to efficiently score points for your team!

How to Score

After collecting Aeos Energy, head towards any of the enemy goal zones located at both top and bottom areas of the map. Only goal zones that are near allied zones can be taken. Once there, press and hold X until the goal is scored. While scoring a goal, players can't move or attack until the goal has been scored or they are interrupted.

Opponents Can Interrupt Scoring

When an opponent hits a player in the middle of scoring a goal, they will be interrupted and have to start the attempt from the beginning while also taking damage. Take care that no enemies are around when attempting to score a goal.

More Points Takes Longer

The more points the player is attempting to score with, the longer it will take to score a goal. Be careful when attempting to score a large number of points, as you're vulnerable to enemy attacks, and a KO means losing a large number of accumulated points.

When to Score Goals

Follow these tips below for the most effective strategy for scoring goals.

Be Sneaky

Only go for goal zone that have no enemy Pokemon nearby. Getting attacked by the enemy team while attempting to score a goal cancels it. Always be mindful of enemy Pokemon movement in the map.

Communicate With Teammates

When going for goal zones, communicate with the team and plan a strategy. This is crucial especially when going solo. Players never want to be in a position where the team is fighting the enemy on one side of the map while one player is soloing goal zones far from the team. This often leads to frustration, and can cause the team to lose the game.

Defeat Rotom
