Pokemon Unite Mobile Release Date Confirmed

For September 22nd, Pokémon Unite, a five-versus-five MOBA game that was published in July for the Nintendo Switch, will be available on iOS and Android smartphones. During a livestream today, the Pokémon Company announced that you may now pre-register for the mobile game on your respective devices (iOS, Android). When it's officially ready to download, you'll be alerted.


Whether you play Pokémon Unite on a mobile device or a Nintendo Switch, the game will support cross-platform play, allowing you to play with or against others from all around the world. You can enjoy cross-progression by linking your accounts on the Switch version with the mobile game, allowing you to play the game with your stored data and characters.

There are two objectives for the pre-registration promotion for the mobile game. Everyone in every edition gets a Pikachu Unite License if 2,500,000 people pre-register. People will also receive the Pikachu Special Festival Style Holowear if there are 5,000,000 pre-registrations.

In Pokemon Unite, Sylveon and Mamoswine were also briefly seen. However, neither has a release date as of yet.

The Pokémon Company didn’t give a date for when new the icy Piloswine evolution Mamoswine and Sylveon, the cutest Eeveelution, will be added, chief operating officer Takato Utsunomiya said they “are slated to join in future updates.”


Pokémon Unite is a significant departure for the long-running series, but one that (mostly) pays off, according to some Kotaku gamers. You must place orbs in a hoop-like goal in order to win, and each Pokémon has its own scoring motion. And, much as in mainstream games or Pokémon Go, the efficacy of each partner fluctuates. The correct move may make or break a Pokémon, but the constant adjustments that make Unite a MOBA push players to experiment with new teams. Unless it's Blissey, of course. Because Blissey has to be OP at all times for some reason.
