Pokémon Unite is a MOBA that pits Pokémon such as Pikachu, Gengar, and Charizard, and others against each other. Matches are 5v5, with every player controlling a Pokémon. There are five different classes that gamers can choose from: Attacker, Speedster, All-rounder, Defender, and Supporter. Wild Pokémon can be defeated in order to level up and evolve player's characters in order to make them more powerful. Gamers can also execute special techniques called Unite Moves, powerful moves that are exclusive to Pokémon Unite that have the ability to turn the tides of battle. The goal of Pokémon Unite is to collect Aeos energy to deposit in the opponents' goal zones, as well as to knock opposing Pokémon to prevent them from scoring points.
Pokémon Unite is currently available for the Nintendo Switch. The game will come to mobile devices on September 22nd.
