MANILA, Philippines – The Pokemon Company recently announced that it is entering the Multiplayer Online Battle (MOBA) arena with Pokemon Unite.
A 5v5 strategic multiplayer game, Pokemon Unite moves away from the traditional gameplay of other Pokemon games over the past 20 years.
In the game, two teams will attempt to outdo the other as one team strives to capture, train, and evolve wild Pokémon, and will also attempt to defeat the opposing team’s Pokémon within the time limit. .
As the trailer shows, this will be the first Pokémon game in which players work as a team.
However, fans don’t seem entirely happy with the new game, with “an unprecedented amount of dislikes” on the game’s YouTube trailer.
Many fans have high expectations for the latest version of Pokemon.
Prior to the announcement, Pokemon fans believed the announcement of the new game was a possible step backwards from classic Pokemon games like Diamond and Pearl.
At the time of writing, the Pokemon Unite video uploaded to the company’s YouTube account has reached 25,000 dislikes – apparently uniting fans to voice their opinion on the game.
Fans allege the account removed dislikes in the video’s comments.
The new game will be available on Nintendo Switch and on Android and iOS devices and is slated to be a cross-platform game, meaning you can play as a team with other people using different devices.
The Pokemon brand has introduced many games into its diverse timeline. From collectible cards and console games to the most recent Pokemon Go craze, TiMi Studios has stated that Pokemon Unite will be a new experience for Pokemon fans to “catch them all”!
The two companies have not shared any news on the release date of the new game.
