Blastoise: September 1.
That is all.
Tencent‘s TiMi Studio Group is producing the game in collaboration with The Pokémon Company.
The game is the franchise‘s first strategic team-based battle game. The game allows 10 players to participate in 5-on-5 real-time battles, and it supports cross-platform play. Each team has five goals that they use to catch Pokémon and score points. Captured Pokémon can defeat other Pokémon to level up and learn attacks. Each Pokémon has its own special Unite move that players can unlock when they reach a certain level. The team that scores the most points during the time limit wins. The free-to-start game includes in-app purchases.
Playable Pokémon include Zeraora, Pikachu, Charizard, Snorlax, Crustle, Greninja, Eldegoss, Talonflame, Lucario, Venusaur, Mr. Mime, Slowbro, Absol, Machamp, Wigglytuff, Alolan Ninetales, Cramorant, Gengar, Garchomp, and Cinderace.
The game added Gardevoir on July 28 and Blissey on August 18. The game will also add Mamoswine and Sylveon as playable characters. Players who log in to the game by August 31 at 10:59 a.m. EDT will unlock the playable Pokémon Zeraora.
