Pokémon Unite Release Date

Pokémon Unite is the surprise reveal of the month, as Nintendo partners with Tencent to release a MOBA featuring the beloved creatures.

Once again going against the odds, the studio is facing substantial fan backlash after the Pokémon Unite reveal on June 24, 2020. Will it once again rise to the occasion and create a memorable game?

What is the Pokémon Unite Release Date?

Tencent Games hasn't yet revealed the official Pokemon Unite release date, but we're expecting it to launch by late 2020, either as a soft-launch or final release, based on the apparent development stage. Tencent and Nintendo are promising more news soon, ending the reveal trailer with a telling “stay tuned for more information.”

Pokemon Unite, which is a title that is very likely to be confused with Pokemon United is a team battle game consisting of 5v5 matches. You must cooperate with your teammates in order to catch wild Pokémon, level up and evolve them, so that you can defeat the rivals' Pokémon. Your goal is also to earn more points than the opposing team in the time that the match runs. The Pokémon that you can play as includes Pikachu, Snorlax, Blastoise, Charizard, and more.

The Pokémon Unite free-to-play business model will lure many players to the community, although Nintendo is making a habit of calling it free-to-start. In-app purchases are available, although it's too soon to know exactly what these will include.

Although a Pokémon MOBA isn't exactly going to set the world on fire, it could turn out to be a fun and competitive game. We'll update this guide when we have the final Pokémon Unite release date.
