Pokémon Unite Now Live on Android and iOS

Finally! Twitter/Pokémon Unite

It took a while but Pokémon Unite is finally live on the mobile platform. First released for the Nintendo Switch, the game’s now available on iOS and Android. This is the first-ever strategic team battle game set in the Pokémon universe.

Before the launch on the mobile platform, the game had managed to exceed 5 million pre-registrations. To celebrate the new release, Trainers who complete the in-game event in the mobile version by October 31 get these pre-registration campaign rewards:

  • 1,000 Aeos tickets.
  • Unite license for Pikachu.
  • Trainers who already have this license receive Aeos coins.
  • Special Holowear for Pikachu called Festival Style.

Battle Pass

A new battle pass titled the Galactic Ghost 094 is now available to all players. As part of this new battle pass, space-themed items make their official debut in the game. Like your typical battle pass, players need to finish daily and weekly missions to increase the pass level and get corresponding rewards.

A premium pass is also available for the chance to get more rewards.

Unite Squads

A new feature is added not only to mobile versions but also to Switch. Unite Squads has Trainers come up with their own squads or look for existing squads and join them. There are also squad tags that can be used to find like-minded Trainers.

Unite License for Zeraora

Trainers who missed the launch bonus for Switch now have a chance to get the Unite license for Zeraora. All that needs to be done is to complete a special mission. Those who already have this license can still take the mission, but completing it yields Aeos coins instead.

Update Released

In addition to what’s already mentioned, the launch of the mobile versions means the release of game updates, which should excite players. For example, the update introduces full cross-platform play and account linking across Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. That means once a player links an account, they can play the game with the same account on Switch and mobile devices.

Other changes include:

  • New in-game events in which players can get super item enhancers.
    • This allows players to upgrade a held item to grade 30.
    • This makes it easy for all Trainers to get item enhancers.
  • New held items to introduce fresh strategies.
  • The rollout of some limited Spectator Mode features.
  • Support for multiple new languages.
