Mewtwo will be joining the Pokémon UNITE roster from July 21st. Two separate licenses will be available for Mewtwo, featuring Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y respectively, with players needing to obtain each license separately. The Mega Mewtwo X license will be released alongside Mewtwo on July 21st, while the Mega Mewtwo Y license will be added to the game some time in mid-August.
Inteleon's debut delayed to July 4th
Inteleon, who was previously announced to be joining Pokémon UNITE's roster on July 3rd, will now be released on July 4th. No reason was given for this sudden delay.
In commemoration of the game's 2nd anniversary, a new battle mode will be coming to Pokémon UNITE. This new mode is different from the traditional 5v5 battle mode, and will involve players working together to clear the stage. A variety of new wild Pokémon will also be making their Pokémon UNITE debuts as part of this new mode. While a picture of the new dedicated map for this new battle mode were revealed alongside the announcement, no further details about how the mode works have been provided at this time, and a release date for the mode has not yet been announced.
Comfey's new Holowear
A new Holowear Comfey was revealed on Pokémon UNITE's Japanese Twitter account. As of yet, no details about what the Holowear will be called, when it will be available to players, or how much it might cost, have been released.
The Holowear of the Month for July's UNITE Club Membership will be "Beach Style - Gengar". Players who pay for this premium membership should receive the new Holowear in the coming days. More information about the UNITE Membership Club can be found on Pokémon's official support pages.
