If you haven’t played it yet, Pokémon UNITE is a free-to-start game where trainers face off in 5-on-5 team battles with your Pokémon. Trainers can deck out their Pokémon in holographic outfits (called Holowear), obtain Pokémon licenses to use specific Pokémon in battle, strategize with powerful Unite Moves, and enjoy cross-platform support for both the Nintendo Switch and mobile versions.


Battle Pass 10

Pokémon UNITE’s Season 10 battle pass is now available. Through October 12, 2022, the Season 10 battle pass will offer exciting new rewards, stylish Trainer fashion items, and new Holowear, such as Elegant Style: Mew and Wanderer Style: Azumarill.


Mew’s Mural Challenge and two newly added Pokémon

Pokémon UNITE players can also look forward to the Mythical Pokémon Mew! For a limited time starting September 2, 2022, by participating in the special in-game event Mew’s Mural Challenge, you can obtain Mew’s Unite license without spending in-game Aeos coins or Aeos gems. Alongside Mew’s debut in Pokémon UNITE, two more Pokémon will make their way to Aeos Island this September. The Triple Bird Pokémon, Dodrio, sprints into the fray on September 14, 2022, while the Pincer Pokémon Scizor will slash its way into Pokémon UNITE on September 28, 2022.


The Theia Sky Ruins, where Rayquaza awaits
