Free Pokemon rotate weekly every Sunday 5:00 PM PST. The first rotation occurred on Sunday, July 25th and was estimated to have changed at 5:00 PM PST (12:00 AM UTC on the 26th), the standard time for Server Reset for Pokemon UNITE.
Free Rotation is a schedule for a set of free Pokemon that allows players can use them without purchasing their Unite License. Once their duration is over, a new set of free Pokemon will be available. You will then need to have earned the Unite License of the previous free Pokemon if you want to keep playing them.
You can only play Free Rotation Pokemon in Standard and Quick Battles. You need to buy the Pokemon's corresponding UNITE License if you want to use it in Ranked Battles.
During the February 27th Pokemon Presents livestream, the Pokemon team announced that all Pokemon will be playable on special days. On that regard, all Pokemon was playable last February 27 as part of the Pokemon Day festivities!
We will be updating this page when all Pokemon becomes free to use on special days so keep an eye out to this page!
Pokemon UNITE allows you to have one favorite Pokemon, which will be displayed beside you on the home screen. However, you are unable to Favorite a Pokemon while it is in free rotation unless you own a Unite License for them.
|How to Check Free Rotation|
Select the Pokemon tab In the Trainer Menu.
A list of Pokemon with time icons will appear.
Free rotating Pokemon will have a clock icon on the upper left corner of their license, indicating that you have a limited time to use them until it rotates out.
If a Pokemon you own is currently in free rotation, the clock icon will not appear. This prevents players from misinterpreting that their Pokemon will rotate out from their roster.
