Tencent’s Pokemon Unite Will Be a Team-based Battle Game

Since it's free-to-start, you will have to pay for some in-app purchases (perhaps including certain Pokemon) as you get further into the game. The Japanese company announced today its take on the subgenre in the Pokemon universe: Pokemon Unite.

The July 24, 2020 Pokemon Presents has revealed a new project from The Pokemon Company and Tencent.

The game pits two teams of five against each other with battles happening in real-time. Levelling up enough will let your Pokemon evolve, and access Unite moves, which act like Ultimate abilities. You will also be able to destroy the enemy team's goals, which gives them less options to score points and gives your team more territory to work with.

By defeating wild Pokemon, your own roster will gradually level up and unlock new moves. There are also unique Unite skills for each one. Some of the confirmed Pokemon that are playable in the game include Snorlax, Haunter, Pikachu, Squirtle and more. The game will be launched on Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch in the coming months, and it's developed in partnership with Chinese giant Tencent Games. While the presentation itself was absolutely fine, the game isn't what fans were hoping for.
