The Pokemon Company- developer team behind the game Pokémon Unite has made an official announcement of the game’s release for Mobile via their official Twitter account on 18th August. The MOBA( multiplayer online battle arena ) is set to release on Android and iOS on the 22nd of September and is currently open for pre-registration. The 5v5 action game previously on July 22nd made its launch in Nintendo Switch and has amassed admiration from players in good numbers.
With the game hitting for Mobile devices next month, the game will extend its reach to an even larger audience, along with being the first game in the MOBA genre, set in the Pokémon universe. Although the developers have confirmed the dates of its official release, players can also pre-register for their interest in the game, which also gets them entitled to exciting in-game rewards.
Pre-registrations and Rewards:
Players can pre-register for the game via Google Play Store for Android and App Store for iOS. However, pre-registrations are limited to a number of pre-registration milestones achieved, and with each threshold obtained, players can claim the rewards entitled to that particular milestone.
- Players that have pre-registered will be eligible to claim their rewards by logging in to the mobile version of the game and collecting their rewards before 7:59am PDT (8:29pm IST) by October 31.
