The maximum Fair Play Points a player can have is 100 points. Note that you can only receive up to 5 Fair Play points a day, which means you will have to play for multiple days if your Fair Play Points are low.

Abandoning a Matchmade Team

Pokemon UNITE - Matchmaking Ready
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
Idle for 1:00 → 1:59 Idle for 2:00 → End of the Match

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.

Cannot Claim Free Aeos Coins

Players who have fewer than 90 Fair Play Points can no longer claim the 20 Aeos Coins reward everyday. It may be just a small number of free coins, but it can add up if you are playing every day.

Banned from Game Modes

When you reach fewer than 80 Fair Play Points, you will not be able to join Rank Matches. Moreover, if your Fair Play Points drops below 60 points, you will not be able to join Random Matches as well.
