Pokemon Unite release date has fans wildly excited for Pokemon's newest entry in the MOBA genre.

This is Nintendo's take on the popular MOBA 5-vs-5 style game League of Legends and Dota 2 have popularized over the years. Players will battle each other and other wild Pokemon on the map as each playable Pokemon levels up and evolves over the course of the game.

Pokemon Unite: Release Date

Pokemon Unite's release date is slated for late 2020 as of now. No specific date has been released as it seems Nintendo is unsure when the game will be fully realized and finished. Surely, more information about the game will be released in the coming weeks.

Pokemon Unite: Devices

Pokemon Unite will be available for the Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android devices.

Pokemon Unite: Playable Pokemon

All playable Pokemon as of release are as follows:

  • Pikachu
  • Charizard
  • Lucario
  • Blastoise
  • Gengar
  • Snorlax
  • Talonflame
  • Venusaur
  • Machamp
  • Clefable

Fans hope more Pokemon will become available as the game grows and Nintendo gets a better handle on balance and what sort of characters the game needs.
