Pokémon Unite, stylised as Pokémon UNITE is an upcoming game in the Pokémon series. It uses a free-to-start model, and is the first multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) Pokémon game.[1][2]


Pokémon UNITE is a strategic team battle game being developed jointly by The Pokémon Company and Tencent Games’ TiMi Studios. Pokémon UNITE is planned as a cross-platform game for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices and will be free-to-start.

In this game, players face off against each other in 5-on-5 team battles. During battles, players will cooperate with teammates to catch wild Pokémon, level up and evolve their own Pokémon, and defeat opponents’ Pokémon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.

Pokémon UNITE introduces a new kind of Pokémon battle—one that requires teamwork and strategy. It is simple and yet full of intricacies waiting to be unpacked.


The majority of the reception on the Pokémon Presents reveal video were dislikes, with a very large number of negative comments. Contributing factors to this were the game being developed by Tencent that has received controversy in the past, such as censorship, as well as fans' expectation of another core series Pokémon game. Dislikes on the video were also reportedly removed, or converted to likes. Despite this, the game has received some positive reception (in terms of likes) as well.[4][5][6][7]
