Pokémon Company Announces ‘Pokémon Unite’



24 June 2020


On Wednesday, the Pokémon Company showed off Pokémon Unite, a new multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA) like the extremely popular Leauge of Legends or DOTA 2.

The game will be developed by Tencent’s TiMi Studios. TiMi Studios also created extremely popular free-to-play online games like Honor of Kings and Call of Duty: Mobile. If Tencent sounds familiar, that’s because the Chinese conglomerate either wholly owns or owns a stake in games like Fortnite, League of Legends, and Call of Duty.

The game features a multi-lane map, one reminiscent of other strategy games. Instead of picking a champion or hero like you would in DOTA 2 or League of Legends, players will select a Pokémon. As that game progresses, the Pokémon will be able to unlock new abilities.

Pokémon Unite will be a free-to-play game on both the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. The game will also feature crossplay for multiplayer.

The Pokémon Company is yet to state a release date, but fans will be busy with the recently announced Pokémon Snap game and the release of DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield.
