How To Unlock Ranked Matches
Reach Trainer Level 6 To Unlock
Players will need to reach Trainer Level 6 before they can play Ranked Matches in Pokemon Unite. This should take you about an hour's worth of gameplay, so use that opportunity to practice different Pokemon and familiarize yourself with the game before starting ranked!
Must Have 5 Pokemon Unite Licenses
You also need to own at least 5 Pokemon Unite Licenses in order to participate in Ranked Matches. There are some Unite Licenses that can be unlocked for free while some can only be bought from the shop.
Encourages Being Able To Play Different Pokemon
It's necessary to have a wide roster of Pokemon you're capable of playing. Being only able to play one Pokemon is detrimental as it could be picked by a teammate and you'll have no one else to play!Best Pokemon Tier List
Ranked Matches - All Cups List & Classes System
Ranked Match Cup Tier Is Split Between Seasons
Ranked Matches is separated by tiers called Cups, which will be active for periods of time called Seasons. Player score & cup progression will only be counted for the duration of that season. This also means that some rewards may be season specific and will be unobtainable once the season ends.Ranked Season Reset Details
Divided Into Cups Of Different Skill Brackets
The bread & butter of the Ranked match system is the Cup tier system. Players that win get promoted while players that lose get demoted. Players will be drawn from the same or close-tier Cups for matches, ensuring only the same-skill players will be drafted to fight together.
All Ranked Cup List
|Cup||No. Of Classes|
No Rank Lost In Beginner Cups
When playing in the Beginner Cup, you don't have to worry so much about losing, as it won't cause you to lose rank! Of course, this does not mean you should throw or leave, since it will still cost you Fair Play Points.
Each Cup Divided Into Different Classes
To raise a Cup tier, players will need to advance Cup Classes. To ascend into a higher tier, players will need to get 3 Cup classes to advance from Beginner, 4 from Great and 5 matches to Expert, Veteran, and Ultra, lastly you'll reach The Master Cup.
