Pokémon Unite mobile release date and pre-registration rewards

Learn the Pokémon Unite release date and find out what you could have got if you pre-registered on iOS and Android.

Pokémon Unite's Festival Style Pikachu

Pokémon Unite, the free-to-play MOBA developed by TiMi Studios, is now live on Nintendo Switch and mobile. 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.

Pokémon Unite features cross-progression with the Nintendo Switch, meaning even if you start now you can still play with the same account on mobile. So, don’t worry, you can keep those in-game goodies. Now, read on to learn the Pokémon Unite mobile release date.

When was the Pokémon Unite mobile release date?

You can pick up Pokémon Unite on mobile right now on iOS and Android devices. The Switch Pokémon Unite release date fell on July 22, 2022, meaning Switch players had a two-month headstart.

What were the Pokémon Unite pre-registration bonuses?

If you pre-registered on Google Play or the App Store, you’ll receive various gifts.

  • 1 million pre-registrations – 1,000 Aeos tickets
  • 2.5 million pre-registrations – Pikachu’s Unite license
  • 5 million pre-registrations – Festival Style Pikachu

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.
