The three icons at the top of the quick chat wheel offers essential communication for the whole team. They have a distinct color and an assigned symbol, which players can easily recognize while in the heat of battle. Generally, they are key prompts that players would often use in competitive games.

Pings offer more specific prompts compared to a quick chat. They are used to alert the team on certain areas of the map, and are especially helpful in rallying teammates when fighting taking on Objective Pokemon. Keep in mind that giving out a ping takes more time compared to using quick chats.

Quick chat is also available while in the character select screen. You can access them by pressing the - button on your controller. These set of quick chats can range from simple greetings like hello to game specific information like what lane or role you plan to take.
After making a quick chat or ping, you will have to wait for 5 seconds before you can make another. This is likely to prevent this mechanic from being spammed. So, be careful with giving out prompts as you may confuse your teammates!
For both in game and pre-game lobby quick chats, the game will automatically translate the prompt into the users local language settings.
Quick chat and pings are a fast and easy way to communicate with your team. They can range from telling your team to fall back from a losing fight to asking them to explore certain parts of the map. All quick chat and pings you make are only seen by your teammates.

Hi! We appreciate your questions.
1. We recommend Muscle Band, Focus Band, Scope Lens, and Buddy Barrier. We based our recommendation around winning team fights in order to secure objectives like Drednaw, Zapdos, and scoring points.
2. We've updated all builds to the current version (22.214.171.124).
3. We try to make builds that are useful in a variety of situations. Niche builds are only viable under very specific conditions or team compositions so you'll seldom ever use them
