Also arriving are the long-promised Mamoswine and Sylveon, as playable characters for your roster. There’s also to be a special mission reprising the Switch launch’s bonus, letting newbies get a Unite license for speedster Zeraora.


The mobile version has apparently garnered five million “preregistrations,” and to mark this figure (because they definitely wouldn’t have done anything had it been 4,999,999) there’s an event unique to the mobile version that will reward 1,000 Aeos tickets, a license for Pikachu, and a Holowear for the yellow monster called Festival Style. And you know what, if they get to 7.5 million, there will be another 1,000 pretend monies! Tell your 2.5 million friends!

Then there’s Unite squads. This is a means for both Switch and mobile players to team up more easily. As developer TiMi explains,

“Trainers can create their own squads or search for already-existing squads to join and connect with other players. By choosing squad tags that others can search for, like-minded Trainers can find each other easily.”

If you’ve been playing on Switch and want to, er, switch to mobile, this can be achieved by linking your Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account to both versions. Then you can merrily jump between the two. Oh, and they’re finally adding better language support, with French, German, Italian and Spanish languages added to the game tomorrow too.
