How does Pokemon Unite gameplay work?
For fans of the old Pokemon games like Pokemon Gold, Pokemon Black, Pokemon Yellow, etc. Pokemon Unite is a different type of game. What I mean by this is that the game is a MOBA or Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. Therefore, it is more similar to games like League of Legends on PC and other games like Mobile Legends, Vainglory, etc. on Android and iOS. The game is a five-on-five battle arena game where players need to battle on a map. Players will choose characters from the Pokemon universe featured in the game. When a match starts in the game, players will have to level up, farm, and upgrade the skills of their characters.
