    Pokemon Unite (Switch/Android/iOS)

    "Free to start" 5v5 pokemon MOBA by Tencent.

    Lol.





    Catch wild pokemon for points, evolve your pokemon by accruing exp, etc. Every pokemon has its own abilities and traits.

    Currently known playable roster is Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Clefairy, Riolu, Machop, Snorlax, Talonflame, and Haunter.

    Release date and monetization currently unknown. Features cross play.

    Lol is right.

    A bit late to the moba scene aren't they.

    Also the platforms tell me its gonna be money grubbing trash.

    I expect it to be money grubbing shovelware. What market is Pokémon even trying to cash in on anymore... like MOBAs don’t have a 5-8 demographic market and Pokémon makes nothing but “Baby’s first game” tier stuff. Where’s the target audience? Grown ass adults with the brain functionality of infants?

    Ah well. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

    Competitive players ruined the Pokemon series.

    The reveal trailer is now Nintendo's most disliked video in the history of their YouTube channel. Currently sitting at 146K dislikes.

    Since this is co-produced by Tencent I'd imagine this is to get people in China to be more aware of the Pokemon games/brand, since TPC has underserviced that region.

    I suppose what better way to introduce Pokemon into main-stream China other than a Moba? Makes sense lol
