Pokemon Unite players will have a lot to look forward to soon, as the dev team announced plans for the Winter Holiday Event coming soon to the game. Pokemon Unite recently hosted a Halloween-themed event for players, which included new cosmetics for Pokemon & Trainers alike to browse & try on.

The world of Pokemon is a vast place, spanning multiple game genres outside the classic JRPG format. With decades of deep lore to take inspiration from, Pokemon Unite is a MOBA with plenty of content for players to take part in, different Pokemon that fulfill different roles in a match, & different maps with their own unique gimmicks & victory conditions.

Pokemon Unite will kick off the Winter Holiday Event on December 1. From December 1 till Christmas Day, the game will host a Snowball Battle challenge on the Shivre City map, a Holiday Login Gift incentive for players to collect, Aurora Challenges, & Aurora Ranked Matches for players to earn currencies & turn in for cosmetic items. From December 1 to January 9, the Illumination Challenge battle pass will be available for players. During this time, the cosmetic rewards that players can earn for their trainer avatars & their Pokemon are holiday-themed, ranging from sweaters to hats, as shown by the different Pokemon in a picture posted on Twitter. The customary Pokemon Unite Weekend at the start of December will be included, as well.

Running alongside the Winter Holiday Event is a crossover with Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Pokemon Unite players on Switch that have a Pokemon Scarlet & Violet save file will be able to log in & claim a new outfit & trainer card background for players to use as they wish. The outfit & background will be themed around the Naranja Academy & Uva Academy uniforms & colors from each respective game. No Pokemon from the Paldea region are currently in Pokemon Unite at the time of writing, but that likely will change in the future.

The Winter Holiday Event comes after Pokemon Unite released Sableye, the Darkness Pokemon from Hoenn, as the game’s newest playable Pokemon. However, the game will welcome another newcomer into the ranks soon. On December 1, the game will add Urshifu, the Wushu Pokemon originally from the Isle of Armor expansion in Pokemon Sword & Shield. Urshifu will Advance with its Dark-type Single Strike Style & Water-type Rapid Strike Style, which will add a new layer of complexity for players to work with. Between the two new Pokemon & plenty of outfits for players to earn, Pokemon Unite will look to keep players engaged heading into 2023 & beyond.

Pokemon Unite is available now for Android, iOS, & Switch.
