Here’s something you would want to know before you start playing Pokemon Unite. Do not be idle for a long time in a match, or the game’s penalty system will penalize you. Some of you may be finding this strange, but yes, it is true. Pokemon Unite’s Penalty System may be a little harsh on the players. So, players have to be careful enough and follow the Code of Conduct of the game strictly. However, we feel that the Penalty System is sometimes unnecessarily strict. Read this article to know more about it.
Pokemon Unite Penalty System: What deducts fair-play points?
Fair-play points are a score that Pokemon Unite assigns to players based on the quality of their conduct. Every game should have an evaluation like that to evaluate a player’s behavior and manage the game’s environment effectively. Pokemon Unite’s Penalty System directly affects a player’s fair-play points. It’s not only about abiding by the Code of Conduct. There are a few other things that can affect fair-play points.
- Try not to be idle for long times in a match. Pokemon Unite can detect a player being idle and reduce fair-play points on that basis. Your teammates may also report you for being idle and not playing the game.
- Try not to leave the game in between. Pokemon Unite may deduct fair-play points for that as well.
- If you go AFK too often, your teammates may report you and get your fair-play points reduced. Try not to do that as well.
Pokemon Unite Fairplay point reduction
Looking at the three possibilities above, the Penalty System seems to be a bit sensitive to unavoidable situations. Like, if players have an unstable internet connection and go AFK many times, they don’t deserve to lose fair-play points. Many players leave games due to internet problems, annoying teammates, or an emergency. Reducing fair-play points for situations like this may not be welcome. Pokemon Unite could have come up with a better Penalty System where players are evaluated correctly.

The maximum number of fair-play points that a player can have is 100.
