To participate in official tournaments you will need to have a team made up of at least 5 players. You are allowed an alternate on your roster that can be subbed in if one of your players can not make the event. The easiest way to find a team is of course form up with 4 of your friends and enter the event. However, if you are looking for players to team with there are two great resources to find teammates.

  • The Luminosity Gaming Pokémon Unite discord
  • The official Pokémon Unite Championship Series discord

Both of these servers have channels in them dedicated to players who are looking for teams. There you can find like-minded individuals who you can compete alongside! The Luminosity server is a more popular destination for players looking for a team but the official discord has the benefit of having the channels sorted by region.

Get a Play! Pokémon Player ID


If Unite is the first competitive Pokémon title you have ever played then you may not have a Play! Pokémon ID. This ID will be used to track the “Championship Points” you earn throughout the season. To get one of these you will need to create a Pokémon Trainer Club account. Once you have created this and agreed to the terms of service a Play Pokémon ID will be generated in your account that you can see from the dashboard.
