Abandoning a Matchmade Team

You can lose 1 Fair Play Point for not hitting Ready, and letting the timer reach 0 during matchmaking. When the timer runs out, you will be returned to the main menu. Be sure that you are prepared for a match so you will not delay games!

Can Safely Leave When Searching for Lobbies

Pokemon UNITE - Searching for Lobbies
When searching for lobbies, the wait time can exceed the estimation. When the wait time gets too long, you can safely cancel searching for lobbies without losing Fair Play Points.

Idling in Battle

Short Extended

You can also get deducted Fair Play Points by being idle or AFK during matches. Note that you will still be considered as idle when you get disconnected from the match because of connection errors.

Being idle for a short time will deduct 2 Fair Play Points, while being idle for a long time will deduct 5 Fair Play Points. Moreover, your Fair Play Points will still be deducted even if your team wins the match.

What Happens When You Go AFK

Getting Reported After a Match

Pokemon Unite - Fair Play Points Report a Player

At the result screen, you can report players who showed disruptive behavior by Reporting them at the results screen. The report will still need to be verified by the game server before it can take effect. When the report is successful, the reported player will lose a minimum of 10 Fair Play Points if proven to be deserving of the penalty. They will also lose additional Fair Play Points if they were idling during the match.

Important: Only report players who are constantly idle or misbehaving during the match.
