3. Pokémon UNITE
Pokémon League of Legends Pokémon UNITE is the newest video game entry into the monster-collecting mega franchise. It’s a 5-on-5 MOBA where two competing teams attempt to dunk on each other the most times.
While in a match, players defeat wild or opposing Pokémon, thereby gaining Aeos energy. When enough energy is collected, it can be deposited in the opposing team’s goal. Of course, there are a slew of moves, items, and evolutions to turn the tide of battle.
Pokémon UNITE will be free-to-play with cross-play between Nintendo Switch and mobile. The Switch version is slated for a July release, while mobile users must wait until September 2021. For more info, visit the official site here.
