In this article, we will explore the claim that there are bots in Ranked Matches in Pokemon Unite. Read on to learn if there are bots in ranked, how to spot if you are playing against bots, why do you get queued againt bots, and do you still get points for winning.

Bots can appear in your ranked matches. While the presence of bots may seem strange in a competitive game mode, they're a rare occurrence that only shows up when certain conditions are met. Based on our current findings bots aren't such a common sight to the point that you'll be encountering one every match, so you shouldn't worry too much about being matched with or against them.
When you do get bots it will be against a full team of bots and not a team mixed with human players and bots. This will make it so that human players will not have a tough time playing with bots vs other human players.
If you lose enough matches you will have a full bot lobby. Not only will your enemy team be full of bots, but your teammates will be bots as well. This is done to make people in a slump feel better and start winning again.
From what we've observed, losing increases the chances of going against bots in your next game. It increases greatly when you are on a losing streak, with every loss increasing the odds the next match will be a bot game.
In the Beginner Ranks, matching up against a bot is very likely after every loss. This also means that if you lose against these bots, you will also go up against bots in your next game.
When you lose for the first time in ranked for solo queue, all of the players in the next match will be bots. This also includes your teammates.
|All the bots will vote yes if you initiate a surrender|
Interestingly enough, you can vote to concede during the match and the bots will all vote for yes. Even though the next match will still be against bots, you will at least have real players as your teammates.
From our testing, you can still encounter bots if you are queued up as a party.
From our testing, all bots seem to share the same trainer card pose(arm across chest, zoomed out, and orange background). You can check these trainer cards during the loading process before the start of the match.
Bots will also use trainer names that can make you mistake them for real players.
If you have a large score lead, the bots will automatically vote to surrender at exactly 5 minutes left in the game. This means that at the very least you won't be wasting more time finishing the match and waiting to jump back into playing against real people.
Adding a human player as a friend
In the results page, you can interact with other players by adding them as a friend, blocking them, or reporting them.
However, this function is not available for bots. This method of checking is the most accurate way of telling if someone is a bot or not.
Based from user experience, bots seem to appear in every single rank level.
However, the rate of occurance decreases depending on your current rank level. Beginners rank can experience it at the rate of after each loss while Masters rank t can take up to 8 losses in a row.
Yes, you still gain Rank Points when you play against bots.
Keep in mind that since you aren't guaranteed to face a bot after every loss, so you won't have an easy trip to Masters.
MOBA is a tough genre that can be difficult for new players to get into. It can have a high learning curve and can lead to new players quitting after losing to more experienced players in Rank. Playing against bots without knowing it can give these new players more confidence.
