[GENERAL] Other - Changed chat settings but can't chat in versus battle?


Recommended Posts

Basket1976

I'm a newer player who just started battling in versus challenges and people send messages, but the chat options are not there for me. I checked the settings on my account at Pokémon,.com and everything is set to 'open', but the issue remains. Chat works when battling friends, so I know where it should be and that it can work. I am not sure what else to check and so I ended up here. I am Windows user. Thoughts?

Hello @Basket1976,

 

You are unable to send custom responses in some areas of the game as this feature was removed a few years ago. You can still send canned responses in Versus by selecting your avatar. Hope that helps!

Yeah the canned chat update (which was not particularly popular amongst us players) means that you can only directly chat with friends within the actual matches, anyone else only gets the 6 emotes and the 4 canned responses (Devs should really add a few more, because they're really not adequate for even the basics responses, i.e no "Your Turn" ).

 

You can openly chat to people outside the match if they have "Open settings" or in lobbies.

Thanks! It's weird because I get messages sent to me...only there is no way for me to respond...not even the canned response options.

then your issues, is your chat settings. @Mod_RedDragon do you have an FAQ for @Basket1976 to follow? if your settings are correct, then you either have been trying to chat with people whose accounts have chat restrictions, or it's a bug, if it is I suggest you start a support ticket, I'm sure the mods will happily link you

UPDATE: I think the problem was the user all along :) I figured out how to send a message in versus mode, which is different from when you are playing a friend battle. You need to click on the character face in versus mode and suddenly the chat options show up. Thank you everyone for your help. I feel a little silly, but hey, now I know.
