Pokemon Unite With Phone HigherSource: iMore

Best answer: In addition to releasing on Nintendo Switch, Pokémon Unite will be available on compatible iOS and Android phones in September. The specific requirements have not been listed yet, but current iPhone games usually require iOS 9.0 and above, while other phones usually require Android 5.0 or later.

Pokémon Unite phone requirements

The Pokémon Company hasn't officially revealed phone requirements as of yet. However, if other mobile games are anything to go by, we expect iPhones and iPads will need to run iOS 9.0 and above while all other phones will need to run Android 5.0 or later. We'll update when more is revealed.

Although the Pokémon Unite regional beta launch was limited to Android devices, Pokémon Unite supports cross-platform play. When the game is launched publicly, you should be able to play with friends regardless of what device everyone is using. It will be a free-to-play game, so expect in-app purchases.

This multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) was announced back in February 2020 by the same company behind Pokémon Go.

Stronger together

Unlike many other Pokémon games, Pokémon Unite focuses on teamwork as an important component. From catching and evolving wild Pokémon to defeating your opponents in 5-on-5 team battles, you work with your fellow Trainers to do everything in this game. As a team of five, you have a lot of strategy options for battle, including flanking the opposition or using decoys while other teammates sneak around to the opponent base and score more points.

The current Pokémon Unite roster is filled with favorite characters to choose from, and this list will likely grow as time goes on.

Cross-platform fun

Have fun battling with a team of five Pokémon, whether you're playing on your Nintendo Switch, iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or tablet. This is just the start for Pokémon Unite, so we're excited to see where it goes as time passes.
