Pokémon Unite, which was announced over a year ago in June 2020, announced yesterday during a special live stream that the title will be released on Nintendo Switch this July and on iOS and Android in September.

Pokémon Unite is a MOBA game that uses everyone’s favorite Pocket Monsters. The title is being jointly developed by Nintendo and Tencent Games. In the game, players face off against each other in five-on-five team battles. During these battles, players will cooperate with teammates to catch wild Pokémon, level up, and evolve their own Pokémon. They will need to defeat their opponents’ Pokémon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.
When I first saw the game, honestly, I was super turned off because I personally don’t really like MOBA games. But after the live stream and watching the video above, I think I can actually get on board with the game. It really is a completely new style of Pokémon game where even people who might not be fans of the series can get behind and offer them a chance to enjoy the Pokémon universe.
Pokémon Unite will also be having a beta on Nintendo Switch that will be kicking off on 24 June 2021. With the game being free to play, there really is no reason not to give the game a try.
