Pokemon Unite is a new type of Pokemon scrapper that allows you to form teams of 5 Pokemon and take them into battles against an opposing team. And it will be coming to Android in a few months.
The game will launch on Switch in July, with a mobile release to follow later in September. There will be cross-play and cross-save compatibility, so you can grab the same game on your phone that you just put on your Switch.
The game takes place on a mysterious island called Aeos Island and sees you join UBC – the Unite Battle Committee. Battles allow you to try and collect as many points as possible before the time runs out, with the player with the most points being crowned the winner.
You earn these points by defeating wild, trainer-controlled Pokémon, collecting Aeos energy that they drop, and then dropping it into a goal. There are a bunch of different stages to fight in, and the rules of the game change depending on where you are.
The whole thing looks a bit like a Pokémon-filled lite-MOBA, and it looks pretty darn sweet if you ask us. You can read more about the game on its official website here.
We’re excited to try this one out, and when we have a more concrete release date, you can be sure we’ll let you know ASAP. For real.
