Learning how to level up quickly in Pokémon Unite is essential to victory. With the right tactics, you can reach the maximum level before your opponents and eliminate them. And that's what we're going to talk about in this guide. After all, there are some peculiarities in the game, mainly regarding the pokemons' score system and evolution (especially compared to the main game), so let's talk a little about this aspect of level and score evolution.
As with the main Pokémon games, one of the most important parts of Unite is leveling up. Doing this will not only allow your Pokémon to become more powerful, but it will also learn new moves and, depending on the little monster chosen, will evolve into something better. Although leveling up happens naturally over the course of a match, there are some tips you can follow to help you get there much faster, which can easily be the difference between flying on the scoreboard ahead of the enemy team or staying to behind.

How to Level Up Quickly in Pokémon Unite
There are several different ways to level up your Pokémon in Unite, from defeating wild creatures to scoring goals on the opposing side of the stadium. We'll explain each method below.
Defeat wild Pokemons
This may be the most obvious method of leveling up, but it's still worth explaining. It's tempting to go all out and attack the opposing team when you start playing Unite, but taking the time to shoot down some wild Pokemon to get to a decent level will benefit you a lot.
You can find wild Pokémon all over the map, but one of the best routes at Remoat Stadium is to take the central path, which features wild Pokémon to 'farm' at first, then head south towards Drednaw, where you'll find groups from Combee, Vespiquen and Audino for a bigger EXP boost.
Take the last hit on an enemy Pokémon
Any player who helps take down a wild or enemy Pokémon will gain EXP, but the one who delivers the finishing blow will always gain more. Because of this, it's often better to look for wild Pokémon that you can defeat alone to gain more EXP.
Of course, teamwork is the key to success at Unite, so it's all about collaboration. You don't want to jump in the middle of a fight and steal your teammate's knockouts at the last second (no! You don't!), but equally, you'll need to prioritize yourself at some point if you want to level up enough.
Score points in the opponent's goals
To win a game in Pokémon Unite, you'll need to help your team score more goals than your opponents before time runs out. But there's another incentive to do this, as you'll also receive a small EXP boost every time you score a goal.
Scoring goals is certainly not a substitute for defeating wild Pokémon and enemies, but it's another way to gain a small amount of EXP and level up – plus, you should score goals anyway! It's also another reason why defending your own goal and scoring in the enemy's goal is so important.
However, there is an important detail that you should be aware of regarding this method: The score is not displayed in matches. Instead, players receive attention warnings such as "It's a close battle!" and "We are struggling to keep up!" to indicate who is winning or losing. Here's a hint of what the messages really mean and how to know how many points your team has.
Pokémon Unite Scoring Attention Messages
Unlike most team-based multiplayer titles, the Pokémon MOBA doesn't really have a scoreboard in battles. Instead, players are greeted with a total of five attention alerts throughout the match that give teams an idea of their current performance. The first message appears in the middle of the match, at five minutes, with the next one appearing at three, two minutes, and finally when the competition reaches the final one-minute mark. But what exactly does "It's a close battle!" mean in terms of points?
Below, we'll look at each of the attention messages and how to know how many Aeos Orbs you might need to come back and get the opposing team's victory.
What Pokémon Unite Attention Alerts Mean
- "It's a close battle!" (t's a close battle!): There is a difference of 0-20 points between each team.
- “We're in the lead!” (We're in the lead!): Your team has a 21-99 point advantage over the other players.
- "We have a big advantage!" (We have a huge lead!): Your team has a lead of 100 points or more.
- "We are struggling to keep up!" (We're struggling to keep up!): Your team is losing by an interval of 22-99 points.
- "We're really holding back!" (We're really struggling!): Your team is losing by 100 points or more.
As mentioned earlier, the above alerts appear at 5:00 / 3:00 / 2:00 and at the 1:00 minute mark.

How to know how many points you have in Pokémon Unite
Coaches can find out how many points they need to score based on alert messages. Unless TiMi Studios decides to make changes, unfortunately there is no way to say for sure how many points your team has in the middle of a match. However, using the ranges listed for each of the alert messages should give you a general idea of how many Aeos Orbs you need to win.
For example, if you are at the 2 minute mark and receive the notification “It's a close battle”, a player only needs to score 11 points for their team to take the lead. As the points are doubled down the stretch, you'll have 22 points to push your team ahead of the opposition.
Interestingly, if you get the message “We're struggling to keep up,” that doesn't mean the match is over. Technically, the other team can only have 22 points – a difference that can easily be taken away with the right plays.
Use an EXP Share
There are several items loaded into Unite that can improve your performance in battle, targeting everything from offense to defense to movement speed. There's also an EXP Share, which will be familiar to fans of top Pokémon games.
The Pokémon that holds EXP Share will gain an Experience Points bonus as long as it is the lowest level Pokémon on your team. Bonus calculation is based on the Experience Points of any allied Pokémon. Upgrade the item and you'll get even more EXP. It can be purchased from the Item Shop for 1.000 Aeos Coins or 625 Aeos Tickets.
Why is leveling up so important in Pokémon Unite?
Absolutely yes! There are several reasons why leveling up is so important in Pokémon Unite, but the simple explanation is that leveling up makes your Pokémon stronger. This is necessary to keep up with (and defeat) the opposing team, as they will also level up during the match. A secondary benefit of leveling up is that the chosen Pokémon will learn new moves that are much more powerful than the basic attack. Each character has two main moves that change over time, as well as a single Unite move, which is the game's equivalent of a special move.
Finally, just like in the mainline games, certain Pokémon, including Venussaurus and Blastoise, must be bred to evolve. This is essential if you want them to reach their full potential. Not all Pokémon evolve, but leveling up is important anyway.
Get Ready For Pokémon Unite Battles
Pokémon Unite is an online multiplayer battle arena game, or MOBA, with battles between two teams of five players. The game map is divided into two parts, with several points that must be controlled by the players. Players score points for their team by defeating “wild” Pokémon that appear across the field, capturing them and heading towards one of the opposing team's “goals” to score points. Each match is limited to 10 minutes and the team with the highest total score at the end of each match wins the match.
Players start each game controlling low-level base Pokémon that can level up and learn new combat moves as they win battles and evolve. They are divided into five types of “classes”: Attackers, Defenders, Supports, Versatiles and Speedsters. The game includes a unique “Unite move” mechanic for each Pokémon character. Pokémon Unite is available for Nintendo Switch, Android e iOS.
