Pokémon Unite Now can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android. The MOBA-type game (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, for its acronym in English) arrived on Nintendo Switch in July and now, as announced, it does so on mobile platforms.
The long-awaited title, developed by Timi Studios, of the Chinese giant Tencent, and published by The Pokémon Company, has a gameplay like that of League of Legends, but with the famous Pokémon characters.
On paper, this means that players will be able to immerse themselves in cooperative games of two teams of five people each to compete against each other on a limited-size battlefield.
Teams must conquer a series of zones spread across the Pokémon Unite battlefield. In addition, throughout the game they will be able to capture different Pokémon, which will have the ability to learn new skills.
One of the most interesting features of Pokémon Unite is the cross-play (cross game). In this way, mobile players will be able to share games with those on Nintendo Switch and vice versa.
Also, Pokémon Unite is cross-progression. This means that, through their account, players will be able to play, retrieve their progress on different devices and continue the game.

But the mobile version does not arrive alone. The developers have included Spanish language support, new gameplay elements, and the introduction of Pokémon Unite squads.
The latter will allow the coaches form teams with his partners. Groups can use tags to describe themselves and give other players a way to find them.
A new game mode is also on the way to enhance everyone’s experience. It seeks to “level the playing field for all Trainers, regardless of the qualifications of their held items.”
Pokémon Unite is a game free-to-play, which means that it can be played for free. However, as usual in this type of game, virtual currencies can also be purchased to gain competitive advantages.
According to Nintendo, the game has already surpassed 5 million anticipated downloads. This has translated into rewards for players who complete a themed event before October 31st.
To run on Android, Pokémon Unite requires at least 638 MB of free space and versions 4.4 or higher. In the case of iOS, it requires a minimum of 810 MB free and versions 10 or later.
