In the August Pokémon Presents showcase, the Pokémon Company started off by going over some key updates about the game’s future. These updates included things such as an exact date for the mobile version’s release of the game as well as two upcoming Pokémon being added into the roster.
The game is set for a September 22 release date, but is subject to change. According to the company, pre-registration is available now on Google Play and the Apple App Store. There is also an ongoing pre-registration campaign going on right now, where if there are more than 2.5 million registrations, players of the game will unlock Pikachu as a fully playable character. If over 5 million people register, players will additionally unlock a special festival style Pikachu Holowear costume.
Nintendo Switch players of Pokémon Unite will also get Zeraora as a free character by just logging in to the game by August 31, 2021.
The game will also come with cross-platform support. Players on Switch or mobile can play with each other on the mobile release day. Progression can also be carried over between the platforms by linking accounts.

Finally, Sylveon and Mamoswine were announced as upcoming characters. There is no confirmed release date for them yet, though they do seem to be well into development. At this time, there is also no exact release date for Blastoise despite being announced before the newly released Blissey and the newly announced Sylveon and Mamoswine.

Just keep in mind that the full releases are subject to change, especially with the announcement saying the 22nd but the App Store says “expected Sep 30, 2021”.
