Pokemon Unite, the franchise’s first MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game, will have cross-platform support. It is now available on iOS and Android devices.
Pokemon Unite has finally landed on iOS and Android smartphones, some two months after its release on the Nintendo Switch. The MOBA game, which allows players to play in teams of five Pokemon trainers, is the latest free-to-play game from The Pokemon Company and TiMi Studio, as well as the franchise’s first multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game.
The Pokemon Unite team announced on their blog on Wednesday that the MOBA game had been released for iOS and Android cellphones. Players who were previously playing on their Nintendo Switch consoles or waiting for the game to be released on mobile devices may now download the Pokemon Unite MOBA game from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store on their iPhone. Gamers will be able to log in using their phones and will have access to cross-platform support.
MOBA games may be brief but intense, and Pokemon Unite features really exciting battles with players in groups of five battling it out in an arena, with the winning team being the team with the highest points. The quickest way to win the game is to catch Pokemon, evolve them, and battle opponents.
In-app purchases support most free-to-play games, and Pokemon Unite gives players the option to purchase a second battle pass with new cosmetic items, including new Holo Wear with spectacular visual effects. Users will be able to try out the newly introduced Unite Squads, which allow Trainers to join up with their friends, as well as limited support spectator mode.
Account connection and cross-platform play are both available in the Pokemon Unite MOBA game. This means you’ll have to sign into both your Nintendo Switch and your smartphone with the same linked account, and then you’ll be able to play on both platforms – or even on two smartphones.
