Tencent Games and The Pokémon Company have unveiled Pokémon UNITE, a new game for the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, during a Pokémon Presents video presentation. The game is being developed by TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of Tencent Games, in partnership with The Pokémon Company.
Pokémon UNITE is the first strategic Pokémon team battle game. Players face off against each other in five-on-five team battles. During these battles, players will cooperate with teammates to catch wild Pokémon, level up and 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.
