Inspired by MOBA games like League of Legends and DotA 2, Pokémon UNITE puts two teams of 5 players online each controlling small pocket monsters. They must compete for control of the battlefield. Each monster has its own gameplay with special moves and can evolve in the middle of the fight to get stronger. The mobile version will have cross-play and cross-advance playability with the Nintendo Switch, meaning that players of different editions can face each other and their progression can be transferred between editions.
Mamusoin and Sylvion have been confirmed as new fighters, but still without an exact arrival date. Mamoswine is a large Ice and Earth-type Pokemon that has the powers to freeze opponents and cause damage to the area. Sylveon is indeed an evolution of an Eevee that must attack with moves like Fairy, although Pokémon UNITE does not adopt an advantage system of this type.
The rewards for pre-registration of the game depend on the number of users who will register. If there are more than 2.5 million subscribers, they will all receive the Unite license from Pikachu, which allows them to use Pokémon in battle. If there were more than 5 million, everyone would have a Pikachu Holowear, a version of the little monster in a different outfit. Nintendo Switch players who unlock the game by August 31 can get Pokémon Zeraora as a reward.
