Steps to always play Pokémon Unite at 60 FPS and recommendations

We bring you more Pokémon Unite-related content once again. After its release on Nintendo Switch as a free download, we now bring you information on one aspect you may have questions about: how can we play in 60 FPS?

Many fans are wondering how we can play the game in both TV mode and handheld mode. In TV mode it is set to 60 FPS by default, but in laptop mode it needs to be configured.

Here are the steps in either case:

  • Step 1: Open Pokémon Unite and press the X button when you are on the main home screen. This will open a side menu that lists several options. Scroll to the bottom and click on “Settings”.
  • Step 2: Once in the System menu, your cursor will automatically be on the System Settings tab. The top option will say “Frame Rate”. Click the A button.
  • Step 3: A warning message will appear stating that the new change is not recommended. Press “Confirm” which will set the frame rate to the “High” setting.
  • Step 4: Now press the “B” button to go back. Be sure to confirm the settings one last time if the game prompts you to do so.
  • Step 5: You will now run at 60 FPS in your next battle. If you want to change it back to 30 FPS, simply follow the same steps above and set it to “Medium”. We should also note this:
  • Low and Medium modes run the game at 30 FPS. And the High setting runs at 60 FPS. The game actually has the High setting enabled by default when in the dock, but it reduces it to 30 FPS when players are in handheld mode. This is because the device actually has a lower frequency CPU when playing in handheld mode.

As a result, FPS may drop when playing in handheld mode with the High setting enabled. Therefore, trainers looking for better performance will want to stick to 30 FPS, which is more stable. Those willing to deal with occasional frame drops for the smoothness of 60 FPS can do so in handheld mode.
