Communication plays an important role in winning a game in Pokemon UNITE. Luckily, the game has a Voice Chat option for players. This is a guide on how to use the in-game voice chat in Pokemon UNITE for the Nintendo Switch and Mobile. Read on to learn how to use voice chat, the best apps for voice chat, and more!

Players must reach trainer level 6 before they can enable voice chat in the settings. Reaching this trainer level also unlocks Ranked Matches, which is perfect for voice chat!
You will need a compatible pair of headphones with a built-in microphone to use the Voice Chat feature. As long as your Nintendo Switch or mobile device recognizes the headphones you plugged in, you should be able to turn on the voice chat feature through the in-game settings.
|Turn on Voice Chat in the Settings|
|1||While in the home screen, press X to access the side menu
|2||Go to the System Settings, then turn on Voice Chat
|3||Go to the Audio Tab, then turn on Voice Chat.
|Turn on Voice Chat During Battle|
|1||Press + button to open the menu.
|2||Press - button to open Settings.
|3||Go down to Voice Chat Settings, then turn on Voice Chat.
|Turn on Voice Chat in the Settings|
|1||While in the home screen, head to your Trainer Menu and choose settings
|2||Choose the System Settings option, scroll down, and toggle your Voice Chat to either on or off.
|Turn on Voice Chat During Battle|
|1||Press the Microphone icon found next to your mini-map to access Mobile voice output Settings.
|2||Press the Headphone icon found next to your mini-map to access Mobile voice chat input settings.
|3||Make sure to enable the game to acces your microphone!
|Team: All||Hear all teammates.||Talk to all teammates.|
|Team: Invited||Hear all invited friends only.||Talk to invited friends only.|
You can only turn on the Voice Chat settings while you have headphones plugged in your device. If a player uses headphones that does not have a microphone, they can only turn on the Incoming option to hear their teammate's voices.
Unlike other settings, Voice Chat settings do not save and must be turned on every match. We suspect that this is the reason why most players do not use Voice Chat, since it might waste a bit of time setting it up every game.
Players can mute individual teammates by going to the Battle Record screen and selecting their chat icon. This allows players to choose who they want to talk to without completely muting everyone.
If you get partnered up with a misbehaving teammate, you can report them by choosing Report Inappropriate Chat. We are uncertain what happens when a player is reported this way, but we know that it is best not to be on the receiving end of it.
