You’ll need the Player ID to add other players and friends in Pokemon Unite. Player ID is also known as Trainer ID in Pokemon Unite. With this ID you can find them in your Friends Menu by using the in-game search tool. Keep in mind that your friends can’t be searched just by using their Trainer Name alone. To be able to search for and add additional players, you’ll have to ask for their Player ID.

This unique Trainer ID will be generated for you once you create a Pokemon Unite account. Your friends can use this ID to invite you to their respective friends list. The alphanumeric characters above your trainer name in the bottom center of the screen are your Player ID. By hitting the L button on the main screen, you may access your Player Card and also see your Player ID. The game currently allows up to 500 Player IDs to be added as your friends, which is more than enough for the majority of all the players out there.
