Defeat Wild Pokemon
Defeating Wild Pokémon will reduce the waiting time for Unite Moves by about 5% per Pokémon. The Unite reduction rate is the same if you manage to defeat Boss Pokemon. Take note that the Unite cooldown reduction does not apply when defeating your opponent Pokemon.List Of Wild Pokemon
Taking Over Opponent's Goal & Destroying A Goal Zone
Each time you take over an opponent's goal, the cooldown for your Unite Move will be reduced by about 13%. & as well as the cooldown for destroying a goal will be reduced by about 14%. The cooldown reduction will not be based on your points, so if you are trying to use your Unite Moves early, try to obtain more goals.
When To Use Unite Moves
During Group Battles
Unite Moves are highly recommended to be used in group battles. Using Unite Moves with a wider range may deal greater damage to your opponents and may possibly defeat them all at once.
Also Applies To Single-Target Moves
Although there are Unite Moves that deal damage to a single target, you should still use them in group battles. Defeating a single Pokemon can instantly change the course of a group battle and could be a chance to win.
Use Them During The Last Few Minutes
Group battles most often occur in the last few minutes of a match - mostly in attempts to score a few more goals or to defeat the Boss Pokemon Zapdos. The final stretch of the fight begins at 2 minutes, when Zapdos spawns!Zapdos Guide - Spawn Location & Strategy
