Pokemon Unite is a 5v5 MOBA for Switch and mobile

Share

The free-to-play game was revealed last week during a Pokemon video event which also unveiled a new Pokemon Snap, as well as details about Pokemon Sword and Shield's upcoming DLC.

The game is being developed by Tencent's TiMi Studios, the same studio behind Call of Duty: Mobile. Pokemon Company CEO Tsunezaku Ishihara described it as a cooperative Pokemon game "that anyone can pick up and enjoy immediately" while also offering long-term depth. Levelling up enough will let your Pokemon evolve, and access Unite moves, which act like Ultimate abilities. However, the game does put a few Pokemon-flavored twists on this formula. Catching Pokemon will earn you points, and whoever has the highest score at the end of the round will be declared the victor.

Did Trump Tweet a Doctored CNN Video of a 'Racist Baby'?
It led to headlines, like one on the CNN website past year - "These two toddlers are showing us what real-life besties look like". The social media company also labelled a Trump tweet about Black Lives Matter protests in Minneapolis as " glorifying violence ".

Though the obvious first thought is something along the lines of League of Pokémon, the game shown on the livestream reminded me more of Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm.

Battling will level up your Pokemon, letting you equip a number of new moves, which can be adapted for your playstyle. No release date has been announced. When it does eventually launch, it will support full cross-play between Switch, iOS, and Android devices.
