Pokemon Unite Squads

MOBAs are well known for being pioneers in the growth of a competitive e-sports scene. DOTA 2 and LOL World Tournaments Finals have audiences as big as the Super Bowl - and the genre continues to grow.

Pokemon Unite, despite being very casual, is making the first step for their own e-sports competition. A new feature, Unite squads, will be added to both the Nintendo Switch and mobile versions this Wednesday, September 22nd.

Trainers can create their own squads or search existing ones to join and connect with other players.

Additionally, the game will bring new and cool Holowears (Skins), something that players are always looking forward to picking up more of.
