Pokémon UNITE Launches on Nintendo Switch on July 21
Form teams to defeat, level up, and evolve Pokémon in Pokémon’s first strategic team battle game.
Get ready for Pokémon to heat up your summer with the July 21 release of Pokémon UNITE on Nintendo Switch. Offering a new kind of Pokémon battle, this strategic team battle game gives players the opportunity to compete in 5-on-5 team battles.
Add some thunder to your battles by logging in to Pokémon UNITE on Nintendo Switch by August 31, 2021, to receive Zeraora‘s Unite license. This Electric-type Mythical Pokémon is fast as lightning, catching opponents and dealing massive damage in the blink of an eye. Zeraora’s Unite Move sends out a powerful electric blast, creating a zone of plasma around its strike zone.
Pokémon UNITE will be available on mobile devices in September. Cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch and mobile devices is planned, which will allow players on both platforms to battle together and against one another. Additionally, if you log in using your Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account, you’ll be able to use your game data on any device. With this feature, you can play on both Nintendo Switch and a mobile device without losing your progress.
POKÉMON ANNOUNCES NINTENDO SWITCH LAUNCH DATE FOR POKÉMON UNITE
To celebrate launch, players who log in to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon UNITE by August 31, 2021, will receive a Unite license for Zeraora, which will allow Trainers to use the Pokémon in battle. Zeraora can close the distance between itself and its opponents in the blink of an eye, just like lightning, and deal massive amounts of damage all at once. Its Unite Move, Plasma Gale, sends out a powerful electric blast that creates a zone of plasma around the area where the blast hits.
Pokémon UNITE is the first Pokémon strategic team battle game. Players face off against each other in 5-on-5 team battles. During these battles, players will cooperate with teammates to defeat wild Pokémon and level up to evolve their own Pokémon. They will need to defeat their opponents’ Pokémon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time. Pokémon UNITE will be free-to-start, with optional in-game purchases available.
Pokémon UNITE will become available in September 2021 on mobile devices, which will also include language support across both mobile devices and Nintendo Switch in French, Italian, Spanish, and German. For more information about Pokémon UNITE, please visit https://unite.pokemon.com/.
 Players who download Pokémon UNITE and log in by 14:59 PM UTC Tuesday, August 31, 2021, will be able to claim the Unite license for Zeraora using the in-game mail system. To receive the Unite license for Zeraora after the end of this promotional campaign, players will need to complete special missions (scheduled to be implemented at a future date).
