This is the franchise’s first team-based battle game and it is set to allow up to ten players to participate in five-on-five real-time matchups. Each team has to work through accomplishing five goals that they would use to cat Pokémons and score additional points. The Pokémon caught can learn attacks and level up and of course be used to defeat other Pokémon. Each Pokémon also has its own special Unite move that can be unlocked throughout gameplay. The players can only unlock these moves only when they reach a certain level. The team that scores the most points during the specified time limit will win.
Pokémon Unite lands on the Nintendo Switch starting on July 21. Players who are log into the game before August 31, 10:59 a.m. EST will be able to unlock the Pokémon Zeraora.
