Image: Pokémon

Although Pokémon Unite is arguably a lot more accessible than your average MOBA, that doesn’t make it any less complicated when it comes to fine-tuning the game’s balance.

Like all games under this banner, Unite has been receiving balance adjustments in every update to ensure the competition remains fair at all times. In the latest patch – which added support for mobile devices and cross-play features, the developer rolled out a stack of changes to Pokémon stats and moves.

Apart from this, there are also various other adjustments such as bug fixes, UI adjustments and even a mention of how pre-registrations of the mobile release surpassed the five million mark. Here are the patch notes in full, courtesy of the official game site:


Over Five Million Preregistrations Reached for the Mobile Version

Everyone who plays the mobile version of the game will receive Aeos tickets, Unite License: Pikachu, and Festival Style: Pikachu as gifts for reaching this preregistration milestone!

Note: These gifts can be used on the Nintendo Switch version of the game as well by linking your account.
