Pokémon Unite, the free-to-play MOBA developed by TiMi Studios, is now live on Nintendo Switch to download and play, with the mobile launch set to follow soon. It allows you to control Pokémon in strategic team battles, with the monsters evolving and gaining new moves and abilities as the battle progresses. Meanwhile, you can also dress up your Pokémon with cosmetic outfits. Snorlax, Pikachu, and even newer additions like Cinderace look adorable in their flowery summer shirts and sunglasses.
It has more than a passing resemblance to League Of Legends, which is infamously challenging to get into. Pokémon Unite is a great entry point into the genre for younger players, or those looking for a more casual experience. If you’re interested in trying this game out, but don’t have a Nintendo Switch, you might be interested in learning the Pokémon Unite release date on mobile.

This year has proved to be a big one for the Pokémon franchise, as New Pokémon Snap came onto the scene in April. In our New Pokémon Snap review, we found that “the Pokémon and environments look better than every title in the mainline series.”
Not only that, but Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl’s release date lands in November – just two months after Pokémon Unite hits mobile devices.
