The Pokémon Company International has announced exciting new updates coming to Pokémon UNITE to celebrate its 2nd Anniversary.
Since its launch in 2021, Pokémon UNITE has amassed over 100 million downloads worldwide, and 56 playable Pokémon have joined the fray. To celebrate two years of exhilarating Pokémon UNITE battles, a brand-new type of battle and a fan-favourite returning Pokémon are available now!
Mewtwo Joins the Fray! Mega Evolve into Mega Mewtwo X
The Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo is now available in Pokémon UNITE. Mewtwo can Mega Evolve into Mega Mewtwo X during battle and can use its attacks in quick succession to attack relentlessly. Players can get a Unite license for Mega Mewtwo X at no cost in the Mewtwo’s Crystal Cave Challenge event that is currently under way.
Additionally, the Unite license for Mega Mewtwo Y is scheduled to become available in mid-August, giving Trainers additional ways to play as this fan-favourite Pokémon.
A New Type of Battle: Panic Parade
Different from the standard 5-on-5 battle format, Panic Parade has players work together to protect Tinkaton from an onslaught of attacks from panicking Pokémon. Some defeated Pokémon can even be called back for a burst of help in battle!
