Pokemon is among the most favorite cartoon series for many till date. This Japanese anime cartoon immediately got popular across the globe just after its launch. It is successfully managed by a Japanese media franchise named Pokémon Company, and this company along with Nintendo (as it is founded and divided with shares between Nintendo and others) just organized a special Pokemon Presents broadcast on June 24, 2020, where they announced a brand new online multiplayer battle arena called Pokemon Unite.
The video game was developed by TiMi Studios and published by the popular Call of Duty: Mobile’s publisher Tencent. Also, just after its announcement, the video game made headlines worldwide by becoming the most disliked video of Pokemon Company in its recent history.
The reason behind this gesture was, some fans felt misled or let down, as the announcement was teased as being a “big project” in a previous Pokemon Presentation, and some felt like a new mobile game was not a “big project”. On the other hand, others thought that a past game like Pearl and Pokémon Diamond might be getting a re-make and felt let down that that was not true. In short, fans were unhappy.
The game is free-to-play and will be available for Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch.
Note: The game is not yet released in the market. Will Update the Link Once any Beta or Stable Version is Available.
What is Pokemon Unite?
Pokemon Unite is a free-to-play online multiplayer battle strategy game. It’s a five-player formatted game, where the max of 5 players could play from both two sides. The game map is massive, and players have to catch Pokemon in the game while defeating the other 5 players using Pokemon.
Pokemon Unite Gameplay
Players start the game with low-level Pokemon and over time, can increase its level and gain access to new combat moves as it wins in battles. Players have to score points for their team by defeating wild Pokemon while moving towards some of the control points to score goals.
Every playable match has a time limit. And the team with the most score at the end wins the game.
The gameplay is already being compared with League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm by many fans. But, we have to wait to give the actual review as the game doesn’t have a release date.
Each Pokémon also has a signature Unite Move, which is essentially it’s ultimate. This is a big move that deals a lot of damage to any nearby Pokémon.
