Starting Multiplayer with the Union Circle in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Before you can start adventuring with your friends, you’ll need to boot up the Union Circle. You can use the Union Circle at any Poké Center. Once you’re at the Poké Center, find the side with the yellow circle on it and examine the sign to open the Union Circle menu.

You can also access the Union Circle from anywhere in Paldea through the Poké Portal in your menu. Open your menu with the X button, then select the Poké Portal.

Now you must choose a method of connection. If you’re playing with friends that are nearby you in real life, stay offline to use local wireless mode. If you’re playing with friends across the world, you’ll need to go online by pressing the L button when you have the Poké Portal menu open.

You can see your current connection status in the top right corner of the Poké Portal menu.

When you’re ready, select the Union Circle option in the Poké Portal menu. The game will ask if you want to form or join a group. Creating a group will make you the host and give you a Link Code, which you need to give out to your friends that are joining you.

Conversely, if you’re joining a friend, make sure to ask them for their Link Code once they’re hosting. Select the join option, input the code, and you should be able to connect to them.

Once the code is verified, you’ll automatically be warped to the closest Pokémon center to you, at which point a cutscene will play that features all your friends. Once the cutscene is over, you can start exploring with your buddies!
