Pokemon UNITE - How to Play Offline Mode Banner

This is a guide on how to play offline mode in Pokemon UNITE. Read on to know how to set up offline mode and how it is different from online mode.

How to Play Offline Mode

Pokemon UNITE- Offline Mode Select Screen

Access Offline Mode in Start Screen

With the latest version of Pokemon UNITE, Offline mode is now available for all platforms - Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS devices! You can access offline features by booting the game while not connected to the internet or choosing Offline Mode while at the start screen.

Nintendo Switch

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode Nintendo Switch Start Screen

While in the Start Screen, press the X (X Button Switch) button to access Offline Mode. Note When the game detects that you have no internet connection after the opening intro, you will be prompted with an option to reconnect or use Offline Mode. Choosing the latter will immediately put you at the character select screen.

Android and iOS Devices

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode Mobile Start Screen

While in the Start Screen, tap the Offline Mode button at the upper-right side of the screen to access offline features. Like the Nintendo Switch version, you will be prompted with an option to reconnect or use Offline Mode when the game detects that you have no internet connection.

What is Different in Mobile?

Differences From Online Mode

No Multiplayer in Offline Mode

There is no way to play with other people or friends while in offline mode, even through local connections.

Can Only Play with Bots

You are only limited to playing with CPU-controlled teammates and opponents. Moreover, you cannot set how many bots are present in a game like in a typical Friendly Match.

All Pokemon Unlocked

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode All Pokemon Unlocked

Offline mode lets you play as any Pokemon in the roster, even if you do not have their license. This is a great way to get familiar with the characters before you purchase them. Unfortunately, there is no way to review each Pokemon's moves before battle.

Equip Unlocked Holowear

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode Equip Owned Holowear

All Holowear you have unlocked or purchased online will be available to use in offline mode. If you want to use more costumes, you have to reconnect normally and purchase them at the in-game shop. Any Holowear you have not unlocked will be greyed out in the menu.

All Battle Items Unlocked

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode Battle Items Unlocked

All Battle Items are unlocked for you to use in Offline Mode. This means you can try out items like Full Heal or Goal Getter even if you have not reached the trainer level to unlocked them.

Battle Item Tier List: Best Items to Use

All Held Items Unlocked

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode All Held Items Unlocked

Like the the Battle Items, all Held Items are unlocked for you to use. Note that all items have a level grade of 20, so you don't have to upgrade them. Having access to all items will allow you to test drive different build combinations for any Pokemon!

Held Item Tier List

Tutorial Prompts are Present

Pokemon UNITE - Offline Mode Tutorial Prompts Present

Important alerts and points of interest will pop up as you play the game. This is great for reminding players with the game's mechanics, since there is no way to access any tutorial info while in offline mode.

Cannot Play Other Game Modes

Pokemon UNITE- Offline Mode Standard Battle Only

Offline mode only features Standard, 5 versus 5 Unite Battles. Other modes like Quick Battle or the Practice Area are not available while in this mode.

No Rewards or Penalties

Pokemon UNITE- Offline Mode Lose Screen
Completing matches in offline mode does not reward you with Aeos Coins or EXP. Additionally, quitting the match will not penalize you in any way.

Match Stats Do Not Carry Over

Winning or losing matches while in this mode will not affect your Battle Record once you go back online.
