Squad Features

Assign a Squad Leader

Pokemon UNITE - Squads Change Squad Leader

Every Squad has a Squad Leader that takes charge of the group. Unlike other members, Squad Leaders have the authority to accept requests to join the squad and to remove people from the squad. Squad Leaders can also give up their roles to another squad member and become a regular member in the process. Only 1 Squad Leader may be present in a squad at any given time.

How to Remove a Squad Member

How to Remove a Squad Member
1 Select the squad member you want to remove. Then, choose Remove from Unite Squad.
2 Select Yes to confirm.
3 After that, the squad member will be removed from the Unite Squad.
Note: There is a 1-minute interval before you can remove another squad member.

Squad Chat Feature

Pokemon UNITE - Squad Chat Feature

All Squads come with a Squad Chat, which is a message board that allows squad members to freely communicate with each other. It also notifies members when a new squad member joins the group or if a squad member has left the group.

Connect with Other Trainers

When in a Squad, you'll have an easy time viewing the profiles of your other Squad members. Additionally, you can directly send friend requests to them as well if they're not your friends yet.

Benefits of Being in a Squad

Team Up for Matches

Pokemon UNITE - Waiting for a Match in the Lobby
Squads are a good place to get to know a lot of different players. If you happen to find several other people who are on the same skill level as you are, you can add each other as friends in-game and team up for your next matches, allowing for better coordination and in turn, better odds of victory.

Information Sharing

Being part of a Squad gives you the opportunity to learn more from other players about their varying skills and playstyles. This can also work the other way around and allow you to impart your knowledge to less experienced players.

What Are Squads?

Pokemon UNITE - Squads Menu

Squads are a new feature introduced in Pokemon UNITE for Version 1.2.1.3. It functions similarly like guilds in most MMORPGs, allowing players to easily set up lobbies, team up in battles, and exchange information.
