Pokemon Unite for Android: Everything you need to know

It's time to unite!

The world of Pokémon is no stranger to spin-off games, as many have been released in the franchises 25 year history. With games like Pokémon GO already taking the world by storm, The Pokémon Company is ready to introduce a new contender into the ring form of Pokémon UNITE. Announced in mid-2020's Pokémon Direct, UNITE is a multiplayer strategy game that tasks players with using a variety of Pokémon to take down opponents and level up.

Here's everything we know about Pokémon UNITE on Android.

What is Pokémon UNITE?

Pokémon UNITE is an upcoming strategic MOBA team battle game developed by both The Pokémon Company and Tencent Games TiMi Studios. Pokémon UNITE will have players facing off against one another in 5-on-5 team battles. During these battles, players will continue to cooperate with their teammates in order to catch wild Pokémon, all while leveling up and evolving their own Pokémon in the process.

What is Pokémon UNITE's gameplay like?

Gameplay wise, Pokémon UNITE seems to play similar to MOBAs like Arena of Valor or League of Legends, with players having to keep watch on the battles happening between your Pokémon and also managing how to plan for the future by catching more.

It's unknown if there's a deeper layer to the game at the moment, but it wouldn't be shocking to see some other mechanics come into play once the full game launches.

Which Pokémon are in Pokémon UNITE?

It's currently unknown just how many Pokémon will be featured in Pokémon UNITE. According to recent updates from The Pokémon Company, though, it seems like players can look forward to many of their favorites appearing in the game. So far, the following Pokémon have been confirmed to appear in Pokémon UNITE:

  • Blastoise
  • Venasaur
  • Lucario
  • Gengar
  • Machamp
  • Snorlax
  • Pikachu
  • Clefable
  • Charizard
  • Talonflame

While there are only 10 confirmed Pokémon so far in the game, fans have spotted others through various leaks and other brief looks at gameplay. Considering the fact that there are nearly 900 Pokémon in existence, they should have absolutely no trouble in finding more to include should they want to.

What platforms is Pokémon UNITE available on?

Pokémon UNITE will be available for Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch when it launches. It's unclear if any other platforms will be getting access to the game.

Will Pokémon UNITE support cross-play?

Yes. According to Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa during a recent financial briefing Q&A session, players on Android, iOS, or the Nintendo Switch will all be able to play with one another.

Is there a Pokémon UNITE beta?

According to a recent development update from The Pokémon Company, a beta test for Pokémon UNITE will be taking place sometime in March for Canadian Android users only.

Android users must be a resident of Canada and over the age of 16 to participate in the beta, and any progress made in-game during the beta will be reset once the beta is completed.

When does Pokémon UNITE release?

Currently, there is no information on when Pokémon UNITE will be released. However, because it is the 25th anniversary of Pokémon, and with more news on various Pokémon titles and properties coming this year, it wouldn't be too shocking to see more information come sooner rather than later.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

Review: The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is a truly moving Alexa speaker

This new Echo Show is a real head-turner. The smart speaker market has grown quite a bit since Amazon introduced the first Echo in late 2014. However, after introducing the first Echo Show in 2017, the evolution of smart screened devices hasn't progressed nearly so quickly. There have mostly been incremental updates to the devices put out by Amazon, Google, and others like Lenovo, adding bigger screens and (marginally) better speakers, but nothing has really moved the category forward. As it has done several times before, Amazon is poised to usher in the next paradigm shift in smart speaker tech with its latest Echo device, the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). I've had the pleasure of using just about every Alexa and Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker over the past few years, so I feel well-suited to write this Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) review based on that background. I'm not going to get too far into the argument of which smart assistant is better — by now, you've

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
