Get Points By Defeating Wild & Opposing Pokemon
Every time you defeat a Wild Pokemon, you will receive points if you do the last hit on it! You will know how many Points a Wild Pokemon would give by the number displayed next to a yellow Pokeball above them.List Of Wild Pokemon
Wild Pokemon Give Different Amount Of Points
Normal Wild Pokemon can give you between 3 to 5 points for defeating them. Boss Pokemon on the other hand give 20 to 30 points, but will require more effort to defeat.
Enemy Pokemon Drop Their Points
You don't get points directly when defeating an enemy Pokemon. Instead, they will drop their points in the form of yellow orbs. Pick them up to add their points to yours!
Target Enemy Pokemon With The Most Points
It's a good strategy to target enemy Pokemon who are hoarding a ton of points. You can check which enemy has the most points by the number displayed next to the orange Pokeball icon next to their health bar!
Lose Points When KO'd
Don't be too greedy with your points! It's ideal to score them as soon as you can to prevent enemies from stealing them! Remember that when you're KO'd, a portion of your points will be dropped.
Points Won't Count Unless Scored At A Goal
Points earned from defeating Pokemon will not count towards the team score if they have not been scored at an enemy base. You can check how many points you've accumulatedthrough the Pokeball at the bottom of the screen.
Having Multiple Allies on a Goal Zone Increases Scoring Speed
If you and other teammates stand in an enemy goal at the same time, your goal-scoring speed will actually increase! This incentivizes pushing together with your team, so make sure not to leave them hanging if you think there's an opportunity to push your foes off.
Gain Exp Upon Scoring A Goal
Players gain a bit of EXP whenever they score a goal. The amount of EXP earned will vary depending on Pokemon level and the amount of points scored, but it's estimated to be around 15% to 20%.
Scoring Recovers HP & Makes You Invulnerable
In addition to getting EXP when scoring, players also become invulnerable during the cast animation and get healed after scoring! Thiscan be used to dodge enemy attacks, but timing would be a key.
Reduced Unite Move Cooldown
Unite Move cooldown is reduced by around 10% whenever a Pokemon scores a goal. Unite Moves are essential for team fights and scoring is a viable way to to get it back up from its long cooldown time.Unite Moves List - Effects & How To Use
Goals Are Destroyed When Filled With Points
When the point limit is reached in a goal, the goal will be destroyed. Each goal will display scored point progress through the ring around it and a number displayed below the goal.
Score Doubled In The Last 2 Minutes
When the remaining time is less than 2 minutes, your scored points will be doubled. Take advantage of this opportunity to increase your team's points quickly and even possibly turn the tables on a losing game!

Tips On Scoring
- Bring Held Items that grant buffs upon scoring
- Destroy the opponent's goals to prevent healing
- Score when opponents are not around
- Aim for the closest goal with the least enemies
- Capture Rotom to quickly score points
- Defeat boss Pokemon Zapdos
Bring Held Items That Grant Buffs Upon Scoring
Some Held Items grant buffs whenever you score a goal. These are a must of any primary scorer build. The buffs are applied even if you just score one point in a goal.
Recommended Held Items With Scoring Buffs
|Aeos Cookie||Gain 100 max HP when you score a goal.|
- HP +8 [Max: 240]
|Attack Weight||Gain 6 Atk when you score a goal.|
- Attack +0.6 [Max: +18]
|Score Shield||Gain a shield for 5% of your max health when you score. While the shield is active, you can't be interrupted while scoring.|
- HP +15 [Max: +450]
|Sp. Atk Specs||Gain 8 Sp. Atk when you score a goal.|
- Sp. Atk +0.8 [Max: +24]
Destroy The Opponent's Goals To Prevent Healing
Players regain health while inside any of their team goals. By destroying enemy goals, enemy Pokemon are more vulnerable to being KO'd since they won't have bases to heal in!
Be Careful About Destroying Goals
Try to avoid destroying a goal before your teammates can score. For example, if you have 50 points, and your 2 partners have 20 and 10 respectively, but the goal in front of you only has 40 hp left, make sure to let the other two score first. If you fail to do so, you'll effectively lose 30 points.
Score When Opponents Aren't Around
When enemy Pokemon are in your line of sight, they will be displayed in your minimap. You can use this to monitor their location and check when it's safe to score a goal. It's ideal to score points when enemies are not in the vicinity.
Score Casting Can Be Interrupted
When a Pokemon that's charging up to score gets damaged, it will interrupt the scoring and they will need to start the charge up time again. Keep this in mind when scoring since enemies could even KO you when you're casting.
Prevent Enemies From Scoring In Your Goals By Interrupting
On the other hand, you can use this to your advantage when defending one of your goals. When you see them starting the scoring charge, throw an attack to stop them and possibly even push them back.
Use Movement Skills
Your opponents are likely to dash towards you when taking over their goal. Use your Pokemon's movement skills to escape from trouble. This is recommended especially if your chances of defeating the enemy are slim.All Moves List - Effects & Pokemon
Slowing Field In Between Enemy Goals
If you try to go beyond the goal closest to your side without destroying it first, your movement speed will be slowed down! It's not ideal to stay in there since enemies could easily take advantage of the debuff and KO you.
Can't Score On Unopened Goals
Be aware that you will not be able to score on goals which haven't been opened! To "open" a goal, you'll need to destroy the goal further out from it. This means that in order to proceed to the next goal, you'll need to destroy at least one tier two goal first.
Capture Rotom To Quickly Score Points
|Instant Cast Time|
Rotom is one of the boss Pokemon that spawn during a match. When captured, it will head to the nearest enemy goal of the team that defeated it. Once there, it will apply a buff that makes all scoring instant for a few seconds!Rotom Guide - Strategy & Location
Defeat The Boss Pokemon Zapdos
|Person Who Gets Last Hit||+30 points|
|Rest Of Team||+20 points (to all)|
In Standard & Ranked Battles, Zapdos will appear during the last 2 minutes of the game. When defeated, it provides the team that defeated it will receive points. It will also make all opposing team goals vulnerable! This could easily win you the game or set your team up for a comeback!Zapdos Guide - Spawn Location & Strategy
