More Eevee evolutions are coming to Pokemon Unite as playable characters, with Leafeon and Umbreon on the way. The official Twitter account announced an Eevee Festival that will celebrate current and upcoming characters. The Japanese site offered even more details, providing release dates for both. Umbreon will join the game on May 25, 2023. Leafeon will follow on June 8, 2023. Inteleon will also eventually join the game, according to the Japanese update.
Here’s the official announcement for the new characters and upcoming event. Like current playable evolutions Espeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon, Leafeon and Umbreon will start out as Eevee. As people play, they’ll then eventually level up to their final forms over the course of the map.
