There are two types of bots
One is the timer ai you get when an opponent isn’t found and can press the ai button
The other is the pity ai given to players who are below 4500 trophies and have lost two matches in a row.
If you fight the an opponent you suspect is a bot check your recently played if their name doesn’t show up you just played a bot.
Their are other give aways like swapping loop, unreleased Dino’s, or my favorite one playing the same Dino right after you killed it. Ie you kill their tryko out comes another tryko.
Their is a third time that you may encounter a bot but I haven’t seen it used since boosts got added to incubators… but before that during certain times Ludia would use bots to supplement match making.
Pro tip: only time bots don’t reward trophies is when you select to battle them from the fight ai button. Any other time and your not really supposed to know your fighting the ai and they reward trophies.
