UPDATE: Nintendo has now made Pokemon Unite available to pre-download ahead of launch on July 21st. It comes in at 923MB and you can grab it HERE. We previously knew about Pokemon Unite when it was announced almost a year ago but we finally have nailed down an exact date for the Pokemon spin-off. Standing firmly in the MOBA territory, the game looks to be borrowing elements from games in the genre like League of Legends, SMITE and DOTA. The difference is that throughout battles your Pokemon will be able to temporarily evolve to power up and many other Pokemon quirks like held items will be incorporated too. Logging in before August 31st gets you a Zeraora. Zeraor-wow more like it tbh. https://twitter.com/PokemonUnite/status/1415657439207198721 If you've not been following, here's the playable Pokemon that appear in Unite so far as sorted by their specialty.
