Pokémon UNITE is a strategic team battle 5 on 5 game that is currently being developed jointly by The Pokémon Company and Tencent Games’ TiMi Studios. The same studio designed and made successful free-to-play online games like Honor of Kings and Call of Duty.
Pokémon Company announced that Pokemon Unite will be a cross-platform game for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices and free to start.
The game will be similar to League of Legends or Dota 2, where players face off against each other in a 5-on-5 team battle. Instead of picking a hero, the gamer will choose a Pokémon character at the start of the game.
Along with the battle, expect to unlock new abilities for that Pokémon with the goal to defeat opponents’ Pokémon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.
Similar to some of the most played and famous 5 on 5 match mobile online games, Pokémon UNITE offers a kind of Pokémon battle that involves teamwork and strategy.
