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

You should know that once you hit a certain in-game level, the offline mode option disappears, regardless of whether you're not connected to the internet. I tried to use offline mode on my main account and the option just does not exist anymore.
