The next Pokemon Unite character will debut next week. The Pokemon Company International and Timi Studio revealed another ghost-type is on the way. Though actually, it is a ghost and steel type. Aegislash will show up in Pokemon Unite on February 10, 2022.
Aegislash is a unique sort of Pokemon. In the mainline series, it is known for being able to shift its form. So say it would use Iron Defense. It would then shift into the Shield Forme to prioritize defense. But any attack move would use Blade Forme.
The initial Pokemon Unite trailer for the character suggests this will carry over into this game. In the footage, both Blade and Shield Formes appear when certain moves are used. The announcement also confirmed the character will be an “All-Rounder” type that can work in offensive and defensive situations.

This is the second ghost-type Pokemon to come to Pokemon Unite in a row. In January 2022, Trevenant joined the cast. It is a Defender character.
Pokemon Unite is available on the Nintendo Switch, Android devices, and Apple iOS devices, and Aegislash will join its character roster on February 10, 2022.
