Are you experiencing a delay when playing a game in Pokemon UNITE? That might be caused by a lag. Lags ruin a game not just for the player experiencing it but also for the others connected to a match. This is a guide on how to fix lag issues while playing Pokemon UNITE. Read on to learn how to reduce lag, what causes lag, how to reduce frame rate, and more!
|How to Reduce Lag|
Lag is usually caused by a bad or slow internet connection. If your connection speed fluctuates in speed, you may experience lag spikes, which will cause input delays during gameplay. Make sure that your device is connected to a fast and stable wi-fi signal to prevent any disruptions.

In the menu screen, go to System Settings.
Inside the System Settings, select Internet.
Select Test Connection, and wait for the results.
One way to check your internet speed is doing a connection test, which determines how strong or fast your connection is. From here, you can troubleshoot based on the quality of your connection. When speeds are too low, it may be best to connect to another network or find a spot where the connection is strong.
Though Pokemon UNITE does not have a minimum or recommended download and upload speed, it is generally accepted that having a fast connection is ideal - especially for online games.
Having multiple users connected to the same network will cause the bandwidth to be shared shared across all devices. This will potentially slow down internet speed. it is best to play the game whenever you are the only one connected to the internet to help reduce the chance of slowdowns and lag.
Players often times lower their graphics or display settings to improve performance and reduce lag. While Pokemon UNITE does not offer a way to lower in-game graphics, you can change the Frame Rate in the settings.
Though we recommend that you set it as high as possible for smoother gameplay, dropping the Frame Rate to Medium will lock the game at a steady 30 FPS. This can help make the game stable if the frame drops are too distracting.
|How to Change Frame Rate in Pokemon UNITE|
Open the Sidebar Menu on the Main Menu..
Scroll down and select Settings.
Select System Settings.
Change the Frame Rate to what you prefer. After chainge, save and exit.
If everything seems to be working fine on the connection end, then it may be possible that the device you are using is causing the game to lag. Restarting the device may fix hidden software issues that compile overtime. Doing this will allow the system to refresh and operate properly, and might help fix connection errors.
Lag is a noticeable delay between a player's action and the expected response. This is often a huge problem with playing competitive, online games where you rely on precise timing to execute commands.
A bad internet connection is the main reason causing lag during gameplay. Having a slow and unstable internet connection impedes the connection between the device and the game servers, causing a huge delay in responses.
Consoles or phones with poor hardware conditions definitely affects how well the game runs. Having such hardware problems might come from players having an old device, or from them constantly dropping and bumping their device, which might affect how it runs games.
