Released on the 21st of July 2021 for free on the Nintendo Switch , the game sets players in a timed 5v5 team battle which requires calculated team work among players to go around the map eliminating NPC’s to collect the Aeos energy they drop to score more points for their team while simultaneously evolving their Pokemon which they chose at the beginning of the game.
Mobile players do not fret over the fear of missing out because Pokemon Unite is scheduled to have a release on mobile platform sometime this year as well.
POKEMON UNITE STARTER POKEMON – WHICH TO CHOOSE?
Upon starting the game you are prompted to create an account after which you have the age old opportunity of having to choose your first Pokemon for free. Now before you randomly click on any Pokemon in a hurry to start your adventure, you have to remember that this first decision has a considerable impact in your early gameplay experience.
Your options for a starter Pokemon consist of Pikachu, TalonFlame, Snorlax, Charizard and Eldegoss, mentioned below is our overview of all five Pokemon which will help you pick the best starter Pokemon as per your preferred gameplay style.
Pikachu , who some or many would call the face of Pokemon , a wildly popular one that everyone has heard of at least once.
It has been said to be quite an all rounder of a Pokemon in the game and one that can completely take care of itself without much issue , reasoning given behind this is because Pikachu is a ranged attacker in the sphere of Pokemon Unite.
hence, Pikachu can have a very high damage output from a distance and all of it’s abilities have to a extent an immobility effect on it’s opponents.
All Pokemon in Pokemon Unite have a unite move which is essentially an ultimate move, Pikachu’s unite move is thunderstorm , an attack where Pikachu blasts powerful lightening at its surrounding opponents.
Talonflame evolution timeline begins from a Fletching at level 1 to a Fletchinder at level 5 and finally at level 7 your Pokemon will evolve into Talonflame. it has very high mobility allowing a player to move around the map and over obstacles with ease and assist other players when required.
Its abilities are synonymous with it’s high mobility rating , allowing players to at times be non-targetable , if timed properly with an opponents attack. It’s a rather easy and straightforward Pokemon to play in Pokemon unite and a suggestion for new players who don’t have experience with MOBA games.
The unite ability of Talon flame is Flame Sweep, where it charges forward cloaked in flame and shoving it’s opponents aside.
Snorlax is a tank Pokemon with it’s comparatively high HP bar, a perfect Pokemon to assist a team full of players who have experience and knowledge about the game.
Abilities of Snorlax allow him to put opponents to sleep , which could give your team a brilliant advantage during the match however snorlax does not have much of a damage output and hence is simply a supporting Pokemon.
Its unite move is evidently called power nap an attack where Snorlax nods off and rolls around attacking it’s opponents while asleep.
Another fan favorite of avid Pokemon viewers is Charizard.
His evolution timeline begins from Charmander at level 1 to Charmeleon at level 4 and finally at level 9 your Pokemon will evolve into Charizard.
Though the strong ratings and stats of a Charizard a point to keep in mind is that during the early and mid stages of the game you will be playing Charmander or Charmeleon and they aren’t as strong in terms of HP and damage output as a Charizard who will be evolved into during the late game.
The Charizard’s unite move is called Seismic Slam, an attack where Charizard grabs an opponent before flying it up into the air and then slamming it onto the ground.
Eldegoss evolution timeline begins with a Gossifleur at level 1 and then at level 4 evolves into Eldegoss.
It is a healer Pokemon and an important addition to a full team which would allow a player to heal their teammates and as well boost their movement speed.
The unite move or ultimate move for this Pokemon is Cotton Cloud Crash which lifts Eldegoss into the air and then slam down onto the ground dealing damage to it’s opponents while simultaneously restoring HP to allies.
How to unlock rest of the Pokemon?
Want a Pikachu but also want a Charizard? worry not the game allows you to buy Pokemon using the in-game currency which can be earned by playing the game.
The Pokemon Unite team has also announced through their official twitter handle that a new Pokemon Gardevoir is now available for the game.
