Pokemon UNITE players can unlock Zerora just by logging in before the end of August.

A new promotion by The Pokemon Company has players scrambling to start their Pokemon UNITE career. With the game launching on the Nintendo Switch on July 21, what better way to kick it off than with a complimentary legendary? Players who log into the game within the first ten days post-launch will unlock Zerora completely for free.

Here’s how to get Zerora in Pokemon UNITE.

How to Get Zerora in Pokemon UNITE

As stated above, players can get Zerora in Pokemon UNITE simply by logging into the game before Aug. 31.

There are no extra steps or verification needed. Simply create an account, have the game ready to play on the chosen Switch, and log in to receive the Zerora Unite License. After that, Zerora should be available for selection from the in-game roster.

Zerora’s “Unite Move”—which we assume to be an ability close to an “ultimate” in similar titles such as League of Legends—was also revealed as part of an announcement blog post.

“This Electric-type Mythical Pokémon is fast as lightning, catching opponents and dealing massive damage in the blink of an eye. Zeraora’s Unite Move sends out a powerful electric blast, creating a zone of plasma around its strike zone.” It read.

Also known as the “Thunderclap Pokemon,” Zerora is best known for its impressive, lightning fast speed and sharp, electrified claws. It is known to cause bursts of light and thunder crashes when it runs due to the electricity that sparks from its paw pads.

This Pokemon was originally introduced in Generation VIII with the main series games Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Its PokeDex number is 807.
