The Pokemon Company & Chinese developer Tencent teamed up to release the Pokemon Unite MOBA, a long-awaited game for mobile devices and Nintendo Switch. The release date is not confirmed yet.
Earlier today, Tsunekazu Ishihara of the Pokemon Company unveiled the first “strategic battle game n the series.”
MOBA Meaning: It is Multiplayer Online Battle Arean, an online multiplayer game like PUBG, DOTA 2 and League of Legends, etc. where players can battle one another. Two teams with a capacity of 5 players on each side will be able to play Pokemon Unite.
Timi Studios, a subsidiary of Tencent, is currently developing the game as it is under construction. On last night’s online announcement, the company said that it will be released soon on two platforms Mobile & Switch.
Timi Studios has developed several big games in the past such as Honor of Kings (Arena of Valor), etc.
Pokémons Available in Pokemon Unite MOBA
The latest Pokemon MOBA game will be free-to-start and will support cross-platform play. Several characters teased in the announcement are Pikachu, Clefable, Gengar, Snorlax, Lucario, Squirtle, Charmander, Charizard, Venusaur, Gengar, Blastoise, Talonflame and Machamp, and more.
Pokemon characters can switch/upgrade to a different form during the gameplay.
Pokémon, as a brand, is famous for releasing exciting cartoons, anime, collectible cards, films, and much more. The brand has taken a completely different route this time around with Pokemon Unite MOBA. It is the first time Pokemon has decided to enter the mobile world.

Two teams containing 5 players each will face one another in an attempt to capture Pokemon (MOBA Camps), capture points, and defeat the opponents. And if two points are scored in two minutes, your total points will “double”.
