Pokémon Unite has now surpassed 70 million downloads on Switch and Mobile
When pokemon unite was originally revealed in June 2020, it was not well received by the Pokémon community at the time. The reveal trailer generated 150,000 dislikes in less than 24 hours and even managed to top the reveal of Metroid Prime: Federation Forcewhich registered more than 90,000 dislikes in less than a day.
Fast forward to April 2022, and it’s a completely different situation for the MOBA-style free-to-play Pokemon game. It’s safe to say that Unite is big, like really big – with the latest announcement from The Pokémon Company revealing that combined Nintendo Switch and mobile downloads have now topped 70 million worldwide.
Pokémon Unite has gone from strength to strength since the initial launch. More recently, the game added Azumarill as a new playable fighter, following the release of Duraludon in March. Here’s a new trailer – including a Google translation of the description, noting how 70 million downloads have now been surpassed:
“Team strategy battle game “Pokemon Unite” has exceeded 70 million downloads worldwide! Nintendo Switch version and smartphone version are now released! This is a new Pokémon battle. Evolve and score goals. The key to the game is unity.”
