The remaining prompts are more straightforward. They are mainly used to notify your allies where you are or where you are headed on the map. Moreover, it can inform the team of any available Unite Moves, which is good to know before clashing with the opponent!
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.

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 user's local language settings.
Quick chats 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 chats and pings you make are only seen by your teammates.
