Pokémon Unite will get six new playable Pokémon as part of a celebration of its first anniversary, as well as a Boss Rush mode, log-in bonuses, and other things. Players can control a variety of pocket monsters in the multiplayer online battle arena for challenging team-based warfare. The Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Unite was released on July 21, 2021, and the game’s creator, TiMi Studio Group, is now commemorating the milestone.
Pokémon Unite allows players to actively command these recognizable creatures, in contrast to most Pokémon games that only let players battle and acquire pocket monsters. The free-to-play MOBA pits two teams of five players against each other on a big map called Aeos Island that is covered in goals and wild Pokémon. By defeating each other in combat, eliminating computer-controlled Pokémon, or scoring on one of the goals strewn over the landscape, teams can gain points.
The playable Pokémon in Pokémon Unite each have their own special skills, and TiMi Studio Group frequently introduces new Pokémon. Delphox, a Fire and Psychic-Type Pokémon, was the most recent addition to the Pokémon Unite roster, but six more monsters will soon be made available.
Nintendo of America has released the first part of a large birthday update on Twitter to mark the one-year anniversary of the release of Pokémon Unite. Three new Pokémon will be added to Pokémon Unite’s ever-expanding pool of playable species over the course of the next three weeks, with three more likely to follow. The ice-type evolution of Eevee, Glaceon, will debut on July 21, buff bug Buzzwole on August 3, and Tyranitar, a giant armoured Pokémon, will debut on August 15.
A brand-new Boss Rush game will also be introduced as part of the anniversary celebration, enabling players to cooperate to defeat formidable bosses for rewards. The first portion of the birthday event will also include new Battle Pass, an Icy Glaceon challenge, and log-in benefits.
Since its release last year, Pokémon Unite has been kept interesting and engaging by features like the new Catch ‘Em Battles mode. The unique game option, which was included in May, allows players to capture any wild Pokémon they beat while exploring Aeos Island.
Once the player has direct control over these small monsters, a vast array of tactical possibilities become available, substantially increasing the number of playable Pokémon in Pokémon Unite. Glaceon and Tyranitar, for example, are fully developed playable characters that continue to offer depth to the roster.
Since Pokémon Unite’s premiere almost a year ago, TiMi Studio Group has been able to consistently release new material. In addition to a Boss Rush mode and other thrilling incentives, three exciting new Pokémon will be added over the course of the next three weeks to commemorate the game’s birthday.
The celebrations for the game’s birthday don’t end here; later in August, there will likely be more Pokémon Unite stuff released.
Pokémon Unite is available on iOS, Android, and the Nintendo Switch.
