Trainers looking to get the full experience out of the team-based MOBA, which is also on Nintendo Switch, however, should change their settings immediately.

Pokemon Unite 60 FPS

Once you are on the settings page, the very first tab will list “Frame Rate.” If you are playing on portable, you will want to change the setting from “Medium” to “High.”

Doing this will allow the portable version to run at 60 FPS. The game actually has this setting on by default when it’s docked, though portable users have to change it.

The only caveat here is that the game can sometimes dip in frames depending on your internet quality. Those who prefer a locked 30 FPS can switch it back by going back to medium.

Portable players can get 60 FPS as well.
  • On mobile, a high frame rate setting is available, too, but will vary based on your device and connection. If you’re on Wi-Fi, then things should be a little smoother. So, if you’re playing out and about or on public transport, it’s something to keep in mind.
  • You’ll also have access to a Graphics Quality option, with Low, Medium, High, or Highest available. The game will recommend a rating based on your device, so if your phone can handle it, opt for Highest to see those Unite battles in all their glory.

The control settings easily have the biggest impact on the game. Switching over to Advanced Controls, for instance, will give players an extra button to differentiate between neutral enemies and opponent players.

Unite Trainers should select Advanced Controls as soon as possible.

TiMi Studios has actually offered a wide range of options, so players should make sure to try out different setting configurations to find out which one works best for them.

While Pokemon Unite’s default gameplay is good for beginners, Trainers will definitely want to change their settings as soon as they get a few battles under their belt.
