Pokemon UNITE - List of Bugs and Fixes

This is list of all bugs and errors in Pokemon UNITE for Switch and Mobile. Check here for all currently active bugs, fixed bugs from patches, as well as usual errors and issues you may encounter in-game.

List of Active Bugs

Speed Flux Effect Bug

Pokemon UNITE - Speed Flux Effect Bug on Tsareena

We experienced a bug or a strange interaction where the speed flux effect did not wear off even after destroying the first enemy goal. This happened when we played as Tsareena in a Quick Battle match. It eventually disappeared when Tsareena got defeated and respawned.

Persisted Indefinitely

Pokemon UNITE - Speed Flux Effect Bug Persistence on Tsareena

The image above is the continuation of the previous image. As you'll notice, the speed flux effect persists even if the speed flux zone was already destroyed.

Probably Caused by Queen Ascendent

Pokemon UNITE - Speed Flux Bug on Tsareena Probable Cause

As seen in the image above, after using Queen Ascendent while stepping on the speed flux zone, the effect persisted even if Tsareena was not inside the speed flux zone anymore. Based on that, our speculation is that Queen Ascendent is the cause of this bug. It's most likely due to its invincibility status effect. However, we are not entirely sure what caused the bug.

List of Fixed Bugs

Desync Issues

The official Pokemon UNITE Twitter account has confirmed a bug in which allies and opponents are not working properly during the match. It was also confirmed that some match results are not reflected correctly.

It was later found that the bug can occur when Greninja is present in the match. Fortunately, as of Version 1.5.1.5, the bug has been addressed and appears to be fixed!

Version 1.5.1.5 Patch Note Updates (May 16th Update)

Experience Gain Bug

The Official Pokemon UNITE Twitter account confirmed a bug where EXP gained per second are not counted in the level before an evolution. Because of this, a A hotfix was released on May 6, 2022 to address the said bug!

Version 1.5.1.3 Patch Notes (May 6 Update)

Update and Battle Errors on Nintendo Switch

The official Japanese Pokemon UNITE Twitter account has confirmed that there is an ongoing bug that prevents Nintendo Switch players from logging in and starting UNITE battles. This has since been patched out in Version 1.4.1.9 released the same day.

Version 1.4.1.9 Patch Notes (March 18 Update)

Blastoise Rapid Spin Bug

Pokemon UNITE - Blastoise Select Screen

As of Version 1.4.1.8, the bug that allows Blastoise to easily spam Water Spout attacks while in Rapid Spin has been fixed! Blastoise is no longer Bugged-Tier!

Insufficient Device Storage (Nintendo Switch)

During the release of Version 1.4.1.7, Nintendo Switch users have encountered an error that prevented them from downloading the new update and getting in the game. Fortunately, the error was quickly fixed and Nintendo Switch players were able to log in again!

Version 1.4.1.7 Patch Notes

Download Error Workaround

A temporary workaround for this error can be made by re-installing the game again on your Nintendo Switch. Additionally, according to the official Pokemon UNITE Japanese twitter, you may follow these instructions to archive and update the Pokemon UNITE app to fix the error. It's in Japanese but here's how we archived and redownloaded the Pokemon UNITE software - and this worked for us.

1
From the Home Screen, go to Pokemon UNITE and press the plus button (+).
2
Go to Manage Software and choose Archive Software.
3
Choose Archive to confirm.
4
Press OK when archive is complete.
5
Go to Software Update and choose Redownload Software.
6
Go back to HOME then wait for your software to redownload then re-open.

Cramorant Game-Breaking Bug Fixed!

Status Fixed
Platform Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch

The official Japanese Pokemon UNITE Twitter account announced that a new update was released to address a game-breaking bug that made Cramorant invincible for a long time in a match. As of Patch 1.3.1.6, our testing showed that the bug is now fixed!

November 16 Patch Notes (1.2.1.12)

Season Reward Bug is Now Fixed

Status Fixed
Platform Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch

We have seen reports that some players are not getting Aeos Tickets according to their highest Season Rank. This has been confirmed and since has been fixed by the Pokemon UNITE Team according to a recent tweet! Players affected will be compensated at a later date.

Using Greedent Does not Progress Defender Event Missions

Status Fixed
Platform Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch

According to Pokemon UNITE's official twitter account, there is a bug circulating that doesn't count Greedent as a defender when for certain missions under New Event Missions Part 2 or New Event Missions Part 3. Fortunately, as of Patch 1.2.1.10, the problem appears to be fixed!

October 26 Update: Patch 1.2.1.10

Greedent Defender Mission Compensation

Pokemon UNITE - Bug Mission Compensation

Item Amount
10
650

Players who already bought a Greedent license will receive a notice of apology and compensation in their mail for the Defender mission bug. Though the message did not indicate what the compensation is for, we think this is for the Greedent bug not progressing the Defender missions. We also checked an account that does not have a Greedent license and saw that it did not receive the compensation. Therefore, we can say that the notice of apology is for this particular bug!

Drednaw Debuff When Attacking Zapdos

Status Fixed
Platform Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch

As of patch 1.2.1.7, the damage reduction bug appears to be fixed! This was not mentioned in any previous patch notes, so it is unclear when the fix took effect. Still, it is good to see that the issue is resolved.
