Pokemon unite receives an update just over a month after arriving on the Switch. The free battle arena game pits two teams of five players against each other in ten minute brawls. Before its arrival on mobiles in September, the Unite update aims to adjust the balance of battles.
As a result, over a dozen Pokémon are undergoing stat changes that reduce things like attack damage and HP restoration and fix bugs. They include Charizard, Talonflame, Venusaur, Absol, Wigglytuff, Eldegoss, Cinderace, Gengar, Zeraora, Cramorant, Machamp, Lucario, Greninja, and Alolan Ninetails.
The update lands on August 4 at 3:00 a.m.ET. You can also expect a special feature test version for viewers as well as some text fixes. Check out the full patch notes via the link above. Of course, gamers also have the mobile release to look forward to next month, with plans for cross-platform play between the Switch and smartphones. Those who log into a Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club Account will also be able to save their game data and progress on any device.
