Pokémon Unite’s pre-registered players already received 1000 Aeos Tickets and the Pikachu Unite license, however, pre-registration is still open and participants can obtain a Holowear-Festival Style: Pikachu.
Pokémon Unite is a free-to-play, multiplayer online battle arena video game. The gameplay consists of two teams of five players. The map is then split into two halves, with multiple control points each. Players can score points for their team by defeating non-player character (NPC), wild Pokémon and moving towards one of the control points. However, if the player gets hit by another player while scoring, they will be interrupted and must try to score again.
During every match, stronger wild Pokémon will make an appearance. When a player defeats one of the stronger Pokémon, they will receive a unique effect based on the Pokémon they defeated. Each match has a time limit, and the team with the highest total score by the end of the match wins. However, a team can also win if the rival team surrenders.
Pokémon Unite was first released for Nintendo Switch on 21 July 2021. However, it is scheduled to be released for iOS and Android devices on 22 September 2021. Pokémon Unite took to Twitter on 18 August 2021 to announce the news. Along with the announcement, Pokémon Unite shared a trailer, in which players discovered the gameplay. The trailer also revealed that players could pre-register for the game in order to receive special rewards.
The first pre-register reward was unlocked when one million people pre-registered for the game. These players unlocked 1000 Aeos Tickets. Pokémon Unite also recently announced that it has reached the second pre-register reward, as over two million people registered. All the players that pre-registered received the Pikachu Unite license.
Players can still pre-register to unlock the third, and final reward. When the pre-registration numbers hit five million, participants will receive a special Holowear-Festival Style: Pikachu.
It is important that players complete the log-in event on the mobile version on 31 October 2021 to claim their rewards. Once received, rewards will be linked to the players’ Pokémon Unite account. This means that it will be available for use across all platforms. The game’s developer, TiMi Studio Group, plans to include cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
