New Game Pokemon UNITE Announced for Switch and Mobile

Today, The Pokemon Company announced a partnership with Tencent Games' TiMi Studios in developing a brand new Pokemon game called Pokemon UNITE.

Pokemon UNITE is a strategic team battle game featuring 5-on-5 battles between players. It is being developed for both the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, and will feature cross-platform play. The announcement video, which you can watch above, shows gameplay that looks very similar to a MOBA, like DotA 2 or League of Legends. 

Via a news post on the official Pokemon website, "During battles, players will cooperate with teammates to catch wild Pokémon, level up and evolve their own Pokémon, and defeat opponents' Pokémon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time."
