What is Pokémon Unite?

Pokémon Unite is a free 5v5 battle arena game where players accumulate points by defeating wild Pokémon or their opponents. However, they must take the time to actually sink goals for these points to actually count towards the round's overall score. Each playable Pokémon levels up during the course of the round and unlocks more powerful attacks by doing so. Some even evolve in the process.

Pokémon Unite has already been played by millions and has been received favorably by MOBA veterans and beginners alike. While over 900 Pokémon currently exist, only a few dozen are in the Pokémon Unite roster. However, new characters have already been added since the game was first released on Nintendo Switch. More are sure to continue coming as time goes on.

Pokémon Unite: Cross-platform play

Pokémon Unite was originally released on Nintendo Switch and is set to release on iOS and Android phones come September 22, 2021. Players can currently pre-register for the mobile version. The nice thing about this crossplay is that all players will compete against each other whether they're playing the Switch or mobile version of the game. That makes it a whole lot easier to play with friends since it's both one of the best Nintendo Switch games and one of the best mobile games.

Start the game there. At the doctor's office waiting to be seen? Just pull out your phone, and you'll still have all of the Pokémon and levels you unlocked ready to go.
