Pokemon Unite is the first team-based game that will be available on mobile devices such as iOS, Android, and the Nintendo Switch. The game supports crossplay so prepare to play against gamers from other platforms. This is a special Pokemon game because it is the first one that focuses on teamwork at this scale.

So far we are looking forward to play this game. Based on the announcement video, the Pokemon type doesn’t necsesarily have any effect on the battlefield. There is more to learn about the mechanics of this game and we will let you know once we learn more.

Furthermore, this MOBA game features a 5vs5 mode where both teams are placed on opposite sides of the battlefield, just like Vainglory.

Moreover, you can evolve your Pokemon by earning points through defeating wild Pokemon and your opponents’ Pokemon. However, this is a game that is based on teamwork so you need to work with your team to achieve victory and not depend on yourself alone.
