The official Pokémon UNITE website has announced that Blastoise is now available to join your team in the game.

Blastoise Has Blasted into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to make a big splash in Pokémon UNITE, as Blastoise is now available to join your team. This popular Pokémon is a Ranged Defender, and it’s sure to provide some useful support for your squad. This Pokémon begins each match as Squirtle, but it will evolve into Wartortle at Lv. 5, and Blastoise at Lv. 9. You can even make your Blastoise look positively fancy with its available Fashionable Style Holowear.

Image

Blastoise’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing continual damage and decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when it hits. Its Ability, Torrent, causes its Attack and Sp. Atk to increase when the Pokémon is at half HP or less. Now, let’s take a look at Blastoise’s available attacks.

Blastoise’s Moves
At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Squirtle can learn Water Gun, a ranged attack that hits your opponent with a shot of water, shoving them back and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. It can also learn Skull Bash, a dash attack that fiercely rams an opposing Pokémon a temporarily leaves it unable to act.

When Squirtle reaches Lv. 5, Water Gun can evolve into one of two attacks. Hydro Pump is a ranged attack that blasts out a huge volume of water, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and shoving them when it hits. The attack can be further upgraded to increases the damage it deals. Water Spout is an area effect attack that sprays water toward the designated location, decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon in the area of effect for a short time. Like Hydro Pump, it can be upgraded to increase its damage.

Reaching Lv. 7 allows you to evolve Skull Bash into one of two attacks. Surf is a dash attack that has the user charge forward on a wave, shoving opposing Pokémon and leaving them unable to act for a short amount of time. The user becomes immune to hinderances while using this move and can jump in a designated direction once this attack ends. You can even upgrade Surf to grant a shield when the move hits. Rapid Spin is a buff move that causes Wartortle to spin rapidly, changing the mechanics of its basic attacks as well as its Hydro Pump and Water Spout moves. An upgrade to Rapid Spin move reduces the damage Wartortle receives while using the move.

Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon
To inflict some real damage, take advantage of Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon, which it learns at Lv. 9. This melee attack has the user spout water to attack while it spins. Any opposing Pokémon caught in the attack’s large range area will be thrown. Not only that, but the attack also grants Blastoise a shield to protect it from incoming attacks.

Blastoise is ready to shell out some punishment and defend your team. You can surf on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop and get Blastoise’s Unite license now.

Welcome to Aeos Island

Image

Pokémon UNITE takes place on Aeos Island, a mythical island said to be on the ocean’s unexplored frontier. On Aeos Island, players will find the Unite Battle Committee (UBC), which runs a series of Unite Battle tournaments. In Unite Battles, players form teams of five and compete against each other to see who can score the most points before time runs out. Players also experience a mysterious new form of energy known as Aeos energy. Aeos energy can be used in Unite Battles to evolve Pokémon.

These Unite Battles have passionate fans all over the world, and Trainers everywhere long to join in on the action. You take on the role of a rookie Trainer who’s come to Aeos to take part in these battles.

  • The Rules of Unite Battles - Unite Battles are where Trainers and their partner Pokémon compete in 5-on-5 team battles. The key to victory in a Unite Battle is to have a higher score than the other team when time runs out. To earn points for your team, you must gather Aeos energy by defeating wild and opposing Pokémon and then deposit that energy in one of the opposing team’s goal zones. Unite Battles take place in various stadiums, and the rules for each stadium differ. There can be different numbers of team members, different match lengths, and even different Legendary Pokémon that appear.
  • Face Off against Skilled Teams - In Unite Battles, cooperating with teammates is important. When battling a skilled team or when at a disadvantage, you might be able to open a path to victory by coordinating with teammates. In ranked matches, you can earn performance points, which can increase—or decrease—your ranking depending on the results of the battle. When just starting out, you’ll battle at the Beginner Cup level and begin making your journey to Master Cup. Additionally, those who become ranked will be recorded on a global ranking board for all the world to see.
  • Level Up - Before every Unite Battle, participating Pokémon are returned to Lv. 1 through the power of Aeos energy, and throughout each battle, they gain Exp. Points and level up. As Pokémon level up, they learn powerful moves and evolve, and when a Pokémon reaches higher levels, it also learns its Unite Move—a powerful move that can only be learned and used in Unite Battles. Unite Moves can change the tide of battle!
  • Battle with a Fresh Look - In Pokémon UNITE, you can change the appearance of your Pokémon and Trainer. Take part in Unite Battles while showing off your own unique style! You can use Holowear, a special technology that uses Aeos energy, to dress your Pokémon in a variety of outfits. You can also customize your Trainer’s appearance, clothing, and accessories to make sure your Trainer always looks their best, both in and out of battle. You can update your profile with a Unite snapshot that features your Trainer’s avatar and partner Pokémon, and you can even customize the snapshot by changing your Trainer’s expression or pose or by adding stickers. Before entering a match, you and other players can see each other’s Unite snapshot, too!
  • Find Your Role - Many different Pokémon, such as Charizard, Pikachu, and Greninja, appear in Pokémon UNITE. Although type strengths and weaknesses do not exist in Unite Battles, each Pokémon has its own unique stats and role—Attacker, Defender, Speedster, Supporter, or All-Rounder—that reflects its play style. You’ll want to practice with various Pokémon to find out which best suit you. To use a Pokémon in Unite Battles, you need to have a Unite license for that Pokémon. Unite licenses can be obtained through the Unite Battle Committee, where you can exchange Aeos coins (earnable via Unite Battles) for your desired license.
  • Enjoy Even More Pokémon UNITE with the Battle Pass – You’ll have the opportunity to earn in-game rewards through the seasonal battle pass. To earn these rewards, you’ll need to level up the pass by completing missions. Additionally, players can upgrade their battle pass by using Aeos gems, enabling them to claim even more rewards.
  • Obtain Items via Shops - Pokémon UNITE has three types of in-game currency: Aeos gems (paid), Aeos coins, and Aeos tickets. Aeos coins and Aeos tickets can be acquired by playing the game. At the Unite Battle Committee, players can use Aeos coins or Aeos gems to obtain Unite licenses, which allow them to take Pokémon into Unite Battles. At Aeos Emporium, players can use Aeos coins or Aeos gems to obtain UBC-approved goods like Pokémon held items or Trainer fashion items (fashion items can also be obtained using Aeos tickets). Zirco Trading specializes in Holowear, which can be obtained using Aeos gems.
