The Pokémon Company International has confirmed a release date for when Mimikyu will join the fray in Pokémon UNITE.

From Thursday 19 October 2023, you will be able to play as the Disguise Pokémon in the free-to-start strategic team battle game.

First introduced in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Mimikyu quickly proved to be a fan-favourite addition. The lonely pocket monster conceals its terrifying appearance underneath an old rag so that it can get closer to people and other Pokémon.

It was also announced that the next Pokémon UNITE Battle Pass will run from Tuesday 24 October to Monday 4 December 2023. Once again, you will be able to complete unique missions to earn rewards such as the Phantom Thief Style: Inteleon Holowear.

In Pokémon UNITE, you will team up to take down your opposition in Unite Battles on Aeos Island. These five-on-five team battles will challenge you to score the most points within the allotted time, defeating Wild Pokémon, levelling up and evolving your partner Pokémon and knocking out the opposing team’s Pokémon to prevent them from scoring points.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Battle In Style: Take to the field while looking your best in Holowear! Thanks to a special technology developed using Aeos energy, Trainers can deck out their Pokémon in a variety of holographic outfits—with new styles arriving regularly!
  • Unite Moves: Unleash the true power of your Pokémon with Unite Moves! Leverage these all-new Pokémon moves, which are only possible while in Unite Battles, and turn the tide of even the direst situations.
  • Rank Up: Looking to prove how skilled you are? Participate in ranked matches, and earn points as you climb up the global leaderboard!
  • Communication Is Key: Even the most skilled Trainers recognize how important communication is to their team’s success. Leverage signals, quick-chat messages, and—for the first time in a Pokémon title—voice chat to communicate and stay in sync with your team.
  • Cross-Platform Play: Play with Trainers around the world on the Nintendo Switch system or on a compatible smartphone thanks to cross-platform support. Trainers may use their Pokémon Trainer Club account or Nintendo Account on both Nintendo Switch and mobile to easily keep their progress synced between devices.

Pokémon UNITE is now available digitally as a free download on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch, for iOS devices on the App Store and for Android devices through Google Play.
