License Selection Box Reminders

  • You will not be able to claim licenses that you already own. They will be locked when choosing a license.
  • A 1,000 Aeos Coin option will also be present, but we don't recommend taking it. Only use it when you've obtained all licenses in the pool, and you have no other choice.

Best Pokemon to Get

For Beginners

If you're a fledgling Trainer who just started with Pokemon UNITE, these four licenses are equally good and are easy enough to use for learning the ropes of the game! With Aeos Coins quite hard to come by in the early game, getting these early on can help you grow steadily in this game!

For Veterans

If you're a veteran player, we suggest taking any of the four above when you obtain the license box. These Pokemon have pretty complex playstyles perfect for UNITE veterans like you.

These are also fairly new licenses and have pretty steep prices in the UNITE Battle Committee! Getting these for free allows you to redirect your existing currency towards newer Pokemon.

Choose Based on Your Favorites

Favorite Pokemon

Pokemon is a long-standing franchise, and each Trainer has a favorite Pokemon in the game. If your favorite Pokemon is in the pool of free licenses, get it instead! Nothing beats the feeling of getting the Pokemon you really want in any Pokemon game.

If you want to be extra sure on which Pokemon is best to get with the license box though, you may check out our Best Pokemon Tier List!
