Wild Pokemon will be the stars of a Pokemon Unite mode. The new kind of match will let people catch them. Once they acquire one in a Catch ‘em Battle in Pokemon Unite, they could use it to fight opponents. It will appear in-game starting on May 30, 2022.
Here’s how the new Pokemon Unite Catch ‘em mode will work. This is a 4v4 fight. Once a round begins, you can go and fight wild Pokemon as usual. When you do, you’ll be able to catch them. If you get one of them, you’ll then have the option to swap to that other Pokemon and back again.
The video showing off the new mode also highlighted some of the characters that can be used. People will be able to catch and swap to normal, buff, and boss wild Pokemon during these matches. The trailer even showed some players using both Regigigas and Zapdos to attack Articuno.
Pokemon Unite is available for the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. It is free-to-play. However, there’s also a $9.99 per month subscription people can get for customization items and Aeos Gems. The Catch ‘Em mode will appear in Pokemon Unite starting on May 30, 2022.
