This first major patch for Pokémon UNITE brings with it balancing of the various Pokemon found in the game, with some getting buffs in some areas and debuffs in others. This is especially common with MOBAs and is something we’ll see pretty regularly moving forward with the game. This patch also includes the special Spectate feature test that will take place starting on August 4 when the patch releases. A server update will be performed on the game around 12 am PT on August 4, so make sure to restart your app on the Nintendo Switch after that and get the update to keep playing.

Pokémon UNITE is available only for Nintendo Switch, but it is set to arrive for mobile devices in September. For more information regarding this patch, visit the official Pokémon UNITE website.
