Pokemon Unite coming to Nintendo as a MOBA-like team battler
Pokemon Unite is a MOBA-like team battler coming to Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Here's everything you need to know: Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have revealed Pokemon Unite: a new MOBA-like Pokemon title developed by Tencent’s TiMi Studios. Described as a “strategic team-based battle game,” Pokemon Unite sees two teams of five players face off in order to attempt to control strategic locations spread across a map. The area of play also contains various wild Pokemon which you can battle in order to earn additional points. The team with the most points at the end of the match wins. As you play, you’ll acquire resources that will allow you to level up your Pokemon and utilize new moves. You’ll even be able to pull off ultimate “Unite” moves when you reach a certain level. It seems that Pokemon will visually progress through their evolved forms as you level them up, but it’s not entirely clear how that process will work quite yet. Confirmed Pokemon so far include Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Machop, Snorlax, Haunter, Talonflame, Clefairy, and Riolu, but we imagine that many more will be featured in the final version. While we’re still waiting to learn more about the finer points of this experience, it’s certainly worth repeating that this game is developed by TiMi Studios: the same team responsible for the hit mobile MOBA, Arena of Valor.
