Cross-play is now live!

Pokemon Unite MOBA Finally Hits Mobile Platforms Today

Hit MOBA game Pokemon Unite has finally arrived on mobile platforms today. Enabling Nintendo Switch and mobile cross-play. Fantastic!

Pokemon Unite is a free-to-play game first released on the Nintendo Switch last July with the promise of cross-play. So now the wait is over and both PC and Nintendo Switch players can all game together.

However, along with the launch of Pokemon Unite on mobile devices, a new update has also been launched across platforms. The update not only enables cross-play but also adds new events, the ability to team up with squadmates, a spectator mode and more.

  • Full cross-platform play and account linking across mobile devices and Nintendo Switch. Link an account and play with the same account across both platforms.

  • A second battle pass, which will feature all-new cosmetic items, including new Holowear with special visual effects.

The developers at TiMi Group have also promised more playable Pokemon, new maps and gameplay balance adjustments in the near future.
