The highly anticipated Pokémon Unite is finally here! In case you didn’t know, here’s the list of all the Pokémon Unite roster you can play with.

Instead of the standard team battling each other, you will also get to battle the roaming NPCs and capture their Aeos energy and throw them like a basketball, you will have to deposit the energy at a goal point.

Though it may seem like a League of Legends with Pokémon, we highly recommend going through the tutorial… just to get used to the system at the beginning.

Speaking of tutorial, in case you’re still on the fence of playing Pokémon Unite, here’s a list of characters that you can choose from the Pokémon Unite roster.
