Pokemon Unite players, are you ready for its release on mobile this week?

Well, first things first-the Pokemon Unite servers will soon go under maintenance before the big launch. Here's what we know about the Pokemon Unite download size and when you can get it started.


Pokemon Unite File Size

The newest Pokemon Unite update, while an important one, isn't too larger for Switch or mobile platforms.

  • Nintendo Switch - 1.4 GB
  • iOS - 1.5 GB
  • Android - Device dependent

Server Downtime Schedule

Pokemon recently announced on Twitter that the game will be undergoing maintenance on September 21st; one day before the scheduled launch on mobile platforms.


It will be happening from 2 pm to 12 am PT. The game will not be playable during these hours and we'll just have to patiently wait until it finishes - perhaps reading up on some strategy guides and recent changes to get better for your next match!

Pokemon Unite mobile launch is almost here

The official Pokemon Unite team thanked players for over 9 million pre-registerations for the massive mobile launch - way over its expected 5 million!


The game has been around for almost two months now, since its arrival July 21st on the Nintendo Switch. The game debuted to plenty of hype, and it's only improved since then with new Pokemon, exciting outfits, bug fixes, balancing tweaks and more across its latest updates.

Pre register on iOS and Android

If you haven't done it yet, what else are you waiting for? You can head on over here for Android and here for iOS, depending on what mobile device you're using, and get registered for the launch of Pokemon Unite.


Just follow the directions you see onscreen and you're well on your way to being one of the trainers battling it out when launch day comes on September 22nd.

And of course, don't forget to claim your free Pikachu's License, Pikachu's summer Holowear and 2,000 Aeos Tickets on the 29th of September, courtesy of the game reaching its pre-registration goals.
