What is Free Rotation?

Free Rotation Roster.png

Free Rotation is a schedule of free Pokemon that allows players to use them without purchasing their Unite License for a limited amount of time. However, once rotated, you will have to buy the corresponding Unite License of the Pokemon if you want to keep playing them.

This is a good way to try out Pokemon you haven't bought to know if they are worth investing Aeos Coins or Premium Currency.

Rotating Pokemon Limitations

It is important to note that rotating Pokemon cannot be used in Ranked Matches. They can only be used for Standard Battles or for training.

When Do Free Pokemon Rotate?

Sundays at 5:00 PM PST?

Currently, there is no official information as to when rotations happen, but 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.

It's not clear whether this will occur on the same day weekly, but the odds of a weekly rotation occurring on Sunday every week are high.

How to Check Free Rotation
