Here’s an overview of this Pokemon Unite, via The Pokemon Company:
Pokemon Unite is a strategic team battle game co-developed by The Pokemon Company and Tencent Games’ TiMi Studios. Pokemon 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 each other in five-on-five team battles. During the battle, players will team up with teammates to catch wild Pokemon, level up and create their own Pokemon, and defeat opposing Pokemon while trying to get more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.
Pokemon Unite introduces a new kind of Pokemon combat — one that requires teamwork and strategy. It’s simple but full of complexities waiting to be unraveled.
