The Pokemon Presents livestream started with news of an all-new Pokemon game, Pokemon Unite. The team-based cooperative battling game is being developed in cooperation with Tencent. It will be free-to-play on Nintendo Switch and mobile, and support cross-platform play.
The matches are 5v5 and appear on a MOBA-like map split into halves that represent your teams. Battles will take place in real-time. As you progress through battles, your Pokemon will level up and learn new moves, and each Pokemon has a unique Unite move. The side that scores the most points by the end of the match wins.
The news was shared as part of the June 24 Pokemon Presents livestream. This followed a similar event a week prior, which brought a variety of announcements, including those for New Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Cafe Mix, and new happenings in Pokemon Sword & Shield and Pokemon Go.
