Pokémon Unite is a free-to-play online multiplayer game that was first released for Nintendo Switch on July 21. In the game, players face off against each other in five-a-side battles. During battles, players must cooperate with their teammates to catch wild Pokémon, level up and evolve their own Pokémon, and strategically defeat their opponents. To win the match, players have to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time.

Cross-platform play will be available across Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, enabling players to link their accounts on both versions of the game to sync their progression, saved data, and characters.

Preregistration and sign-up for a notification when the game is available for download is now available on the App Store and Google Play Store. Nintendo has said that if preregistration for the mobile version of the game reaches 2.5 million, players will receive a "Pikachu Unite" license or "Aeos coins." If preregistration numbers hit five million, players will receive a "Holowear—Festival Style: Pikachu."

I've been playing on the Switch and it's quite well-built. The menus are clunky but the gameplay is great.

Shame that you cannot play it alone against the computer. I have social anxiety when it comes to online games. I just can’t
Based on the Switch version, I think you can play practice bot matches. But it's very much practice mode.

I've played about 8 hours on switch. It's really fun, and i haven't had the need to pay a single Dollar for anything. The menu is complicated and annoying (which is probably on purpose) but the actual gameplay is really good and every "Unite licence" character is unique in their own way.

This is a surprising move... how involved was Nintendo in this project? I don't think Nintendo has ever brought the exact same game to both their own platforms and other platforms...

If Nintendo is just looking to maximize the number of people playing this game and doesn't want it to be a system seller, why wouldn't they also release it for the Xbox and Playstation as well? I guess those devices are more explicitly competition against the Switch...
