Pokemon Unite is set to add another fanfavorite Pokemon in August.
Recent datamine leaks have revealed that Tyranitar will be added to the popular MOBAstyle game in August. Tyranitar will be an allrounder. No additional details were revealed about its playstyle but the leaker Eclipse claimed that it would be released for August 16th. Eclipse also shared several datamined images of rockthemed Holowear suggesting that the next Season Pass would be themed around rockandroll. Additionally Eclipse also shared a surprising image of a Gigantamax Pikachu and a Surfing Pikachu datamined from the game so it appears that the Dynamax mechanic will somehow be incorporated into the game.
Tyranitar is the third Pokemon poised to be released for Pokemon Unite in the next two months. Previous leaks have indicated that Glaceon and Buzzwole will also be added in late July/early August. Buzzwole notably is the first Ultra Beast to be added to Pokemon Unite while Glaceon will be the third Eevee evolution added to the roster. None of these additions have been confirmed but the Pokemon Unite leak community is usually pretty accurate. Pokemon Unite is a MOBAstyle freetoplay game featuring 5v5 team battles. Players control a single Pokemon and level it up by defeating wild Pokemon and opponents.
Players also collect Aeos Energy from wild Pokemon and try to score goals on their opponents side. While the game is missing several features from traditional Pokemon games such as type advantages its still a fun blend of MOBAstyle tactics and classic Pokemon. While the game is freetoplay players have to purchase Unite Licenses from the ingame store in order to use those Pokemon in matches. Unite Licenses can be purchased either using Aeos Coins an ingame currency earned by playing matches or using a premium currency purchased with realworld money.
Pokemon Unite is currently freetoplay on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Individual Pokemon can be purchased through the ingame store.
