Pokemon Unite, Pokemon’s debut in the world of MOBA, has finally got a release date.
This new game, developed by TiMi Studios, promises to be one of the greatest innovations in Pokemon history. It will be a 5 on 5 MOBA with gameplay similar to other popular games in the franchise like League of Legends. Players will travel to the Aeon region where the games will be played in a format where Pokemon will reset to Level 1 and evolve over time.
New MOBA based on Pokemon gets official release date for Nintendo Switch
Pokemon Unite was slated for a July release for a while. But now you have decided on a specific date. Pokemon Unite will be officially released on June 21st.
Players will also have a great incentive to get into the game early. All players who log into the game before August 31st will receive a free Zeraora added to their list. As a legendary Generation VII Pokémon, it is very likely that Zeraora will be one of the more powerful characters in the game.
It is important to note, however, that this release date only applies to players who have planned to play on the Nintendo Switch. Anyone who wants to play Pokemon Unite on their mobile will have to wait until September 1st to access the game.
Fortunately, once the game launches for both Switch and mobile, it will be cross-play between the two consoles. It will also be cross-progression, which means that players can log into their account on the Switch or their phone and keep any characters and items they unlocked on another console.
The game will have 20 playable Pokémon at launch, up to 21 for those who get Zeraora. The list is pretty extensive and includes all 8 generations of Pokemon history. This also included fan favorites like Garchomp, Charizard and of course Pikachu.
TiMi Studios have already planned to add more Pokémon to the game, even if they won’t be ready by launch. Both Blastoise and Gardevoir will be added to Pokemon Unite later.
