What you need to know

  • Pokémon UNITE is a free-to-play MOBA game featuring characters from the Pokémon franchise.
  • New characters are continually added to make the roster more diverse and interesting.
  • The next addition to the game's roster is Tsareena, a Grass-type Pokémon who first made its debut in the Alola region.

Pokémon UNITE is heralded for the continuous stream of support that it receives from its developers. With new gameplay features, bug patches and fixes, Season Passes and new characters, Pokémon UNITE is a great start into the MOBA genre for the Pokémon franchise.

The latest new character in the game comes from Pokémon Sun and Moon, which is set in the Alola region, similarly to the last character, Decidueye. Tsareena, the Grass-type Pokémon, looks like it's going to be a strong contender in the game's roster, using close-range combat moves involving its strong legs.

As reported by Serebii, Tsareena is set to be available starting on December 9, 2021, along with a campaign that grants the license to play Tsareena for free if players log in during the campaign. So far no word has come out from official Pokémon social media sources yet, so all we have to go off of is the teaser trailer available for Tsareena. We'll be sure to update you when more information on this new content releases.
