The message is only showing for those on Nintendo Switch devices, and players on mobile are apparently able to play with no issues. While the error message may seem simple enough, players are taking to Twitter to explain that they in fact do have plenty of storage space when receiving this error. Some have even gone so far as to delete game data for other games, just to continue seeing the Pokémon Unite error anyway.

    Instead of uninstalling Pokemon unite. I moved mine to archive and then redownload the game.
