Pokemon UNITE - Ranked Match Screen

For Ranked Battle, the only match type that is allowed is Random Match. CPU matches are not playable in Ranked. This is because of the competitive nature of Rank and how it challenges your skill against other players. Playing against your friends or bots will not test your skill and can even be abused.
