Pokémon UNITE

Finally Pokémon UNITE, MOBA of pocket creatures made by TiMi Studio Group of Tencent in collaboration with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company, has a release date: the video game will arrive on Nintendo Switch on July 21, 2021. The release will also take place on iOS and Android devices at a later date. Among the many quantities of video games, cards, puppets, gadgets and accessories, the brand lacked a MOBA experience.

Pokémon UNITE is set on the Isle of Heos, a legendary place where players engage in United Battles : Teams of five Pokémon each, each controlled by a single player, compete in an attempt to score the most points before time runs out. These points are earned through control zones on the map as in a classic MOBA. Don't underestimate its gameplay - in addition, Pokémon can level, evolve, and learn new moves while battling enemies and even other wild creatures. Among the wild you can also find legendary or mysterious Pokémon! The game is free-to-play but, like any MOBA, it includes in-app purchases, mainly of a cosmetic nature.

To celebrate the release of the game, players who log in to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Unite by August 31, 2021 will receive a Unite License of Zeraora, a document able to guarantee the use of the Mythical Pokémon in United Battles. Zeroaora is very fast and powerful. His United Move, Voltaic Impact, allows him to emit an electric discharge that creates a plasma zone around the affected area.

Pokémon UNITE is the first ever MOBA game of pocket creatures. In these first months of running in on Nintendo Switch, the game will be exclusively in English, Japanese and Chinese. Later, with the release of the game also on smartphones, scheduled for September 2021, the video game will also be updated to the French, Italian, German and Spanish languages.

Don't be caught unprepared, play Pokémon Unite with the right ones accessories of the pocket creatures for Nintendo Switch, available at this link on Amazon.

Who knew I’d be excited about a Pok√©mon MOBA in 2021?

Pok√©mon fans eager to get in on the team-based multiplayer battles of Pok√©mon Unite following last month’s Japan-only network stress test don’t have long to wait at all. The free-to-start Pok√©MOBA starts service on the Nintendo Switch on Wednesday, July 21, giving us a little less than a week to pick our mains. I call Slowbro.

When The Pok√©mon Company announced its partnership with Chinese juggernaut Tencent to create what’s essentially a stripped-down League of Legends starring pocket monsters, it felt like I was writing an article for The Onion. On top of the absurdity of the premise, who announces a MOBA in 2020? But a year later, now that I’ve gotten a few test matches under my belt, I’m a believer in the team battling powers of Pok√©mon and can’t wait for next week’s launch.

The announcement of next week’s launch comes with a brand new trailer highlighting the basics of battling on Aeos Island. It’s pretty simple stuff. Pick a Pok√©mon, join a team, battle across the arena map, collecting energy from fallen foes both player and computer-controlled. Deposit that energy in the opposing team’s bunkers, and when time is up the team with the most collected energy wins.

In celebration of the game’s launch, players who sign into Pok√©mon Unite on the Switch before August 31 will score Zeraora’s Unite license, allowing them to use that Electric-type mythical beast in battle.

Pokémon Unite will also be launching for iOS and Android devices at a later date, at which point players on that platform will be able to secure a free Zeraora for their stable of pro-pocket monster battlers.
