Pokémon Unite is now available for download and is ready to play on Android and iOS. It’s the same free-to-start MOBA with the same maps and monsters the launched on the Nintendo Switch in July, though the Pokémon Unite team recently rolled out a new update in preparation for its mobile debut. In a poston the game’s official website, producer Masaaki Hoshino detailed the new features, starting with full cross-platform support and account linking capability across mobile devices and Nintendo Switch.

The game has also introduced Unite Squads, which allow Trainers to team up with squadmates. According to The Pokémon Company, Trainers can createtheir own squads with this feature or search for existing ones. Teams will be able to use “tags” to describe themselves to give people with the same interests a way to find them. The update brings a second battle pass with all-new cosmetic items, new in-game events, new held items and support for more languages, as well.

Hoshino has also mentioned in the post that the team is currently developing a new mode designed “to level the playing field for all Trainers, regardless of their held items’ grades.” While Hoshino didn’t expound on the new mode, it could give people who don’t spend a lot of money (if at all) to buy held items on the game a bigger chance to win against others who do.
