Welcome to Aeos Island! Here, Pokémon are more powerful and have enhanced abilities that Trainers from around the world use in competitive Unite Battles.

Face off in these 5-on-5 team battles to see who can score the most points within the allotted time. Each player controls one Pokémon, choosing from one of five battle types – Attacker, Speedster, All-rounder, Defender and Supporter. Want to go on the offensive? Then pick an Attacker! Is helping teammates more your style? Supporter is the role for you! Check out the full Pokémon roster here.

Defeat wild Pokémon to level up, evolve your partner Pokémon, and collect Aeos energy. Deposit the energy into opponents’ goal zones and knock out the enemy team’s Pokémon to prevent them from scoring points. Put your teamwork to the test and take home the win!

Key Features

  • 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 recognise 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.
  • 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!
  • Cross-platform play: Play with Trainers around the world on Nintendo Switch or on a compatible smartphone (available this September) 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.
