For those wondering, Pokémon Unite will be a free-to-play title, and it will feature elements of a MOBA-style game. In the game, two teams consisting of five players each will compete against each other, each will have its own Pokémon with its own abilities and items. As the battler progresses, the players' Pokémon will keep evolving and gaining new abilities as well. Once the players have defeated the opposition Pokémon or those found in the wild, they will gain Aeos energy, which can be collected and put into the opposing team's goal for points. The team with the most points will win the battle.
While Pokémon Unite is going to be free-to-play, it will have support for microtransactions. The company has already installed that players will unlock Pokémon and new outfits for their trainers and Holowear for Pokémon.
