Players having the same Pokemon in a match is a feature of Pokemon UNITE. This page is about whether players can use the same Pokemon during battles, and the things players can do in this situation.
List of Contents
Players cannot use the same Pokemon if they are on the same team. However, players from opposite teams can have the same Pokemon.
Players should use the quick chat during the picking phase of a match to inform their team what Pokemon they want to use. They should also inform the team which lane they want to play in.
Although each Pokemon have a recommended lane, there are some Pokemon that can be played in a different lane. Aside from using quick chat, players can indicate which lane they prefer using the Map Path option in the battle prep menu.
|How to Set Map Path|
Press the button to open the Battle Prep menu
|2||Select Map Path|
|3||Select the lane you prefer|
These icons indicate Top, Center, and Bottom lanes respectively, and will be displayed on your portrait
There will be a checkmark on the player's portrait indicating that they are ready to play. However, players can still cancel their pick by pressing the B button should they decide to play as a different Pokemon. This is useful if players want to adjust their pick for a better team composition
As a rule of thumb, players should familiarize themselves with one Pokemon for each role to have a larger pool of Pokemon to choose from. Having at least one Pokemon of a specific role that players know how to use is a good way to get better at the game.
Players can use the Practice Area to get an idea of which Pokemon they feel they can do well with. They can use the Practice Options, and the dummy to quickly test how powerful the Pokemon can be.
If players are hesitant in playing Ranked Matches with a Pokemon they are still familiarizing themselves with, playing Standard Matches is the best alternative. Players still get to experience playing with other people without the fear of getting demoted if they lose.
Players can choose the match type they want to play, each giving a unique experience for players to practice different Pokemon.
Players can play Quick Battles as another way to practice different Pokemon. The great thing about Quick Battles is its significantly shorter timer, allowing players to pratice different Pokemon quicker, and more frequently.
