Pokémon Unite is a 5v5 Moba coming soon and now fresh beta gameplay got leaked on YouTube. We have it all for you here.
So Pokémon is made by Tencent's TiMi Studios. TiMi Studios made Arena of Valor and Call of Duty Mobile – they know how to monetize. Now it seems that Pokémon Unite is going down the same route with cosmetics and a Battle Pass... it's a troubling sign, yes, but that's not all that was leaked about Pokémon Unite:
Will Pokémon Unite Have a Battle Pass?
Unsurprisingly, sadly, we report this: Yes. Pokémon Unite will have a Battle Pass. Here's a screenshot that shows off some of the monetization that will come our way via the game's store: Costumes and other goodies. No surprises here...
