Switch version of Pokémon Unite exceeds 9 million downloads

Players will receive 2,000 Aeos Tickets come September 29.

The official Pokémon Unite Twitter page has announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Unite has reached 9 million downloads as of today. As a result, Switch players will be receiving 2,000 Aeos Tickets come September 29.

This comes just a few weeks after a pre-registration milestone for the mobile version of the game was hit as well. AS of September 1, that version has now reached over 5 million. The mobile version has easily surpassed each milestone threshold listed out by the developers. Next up, the team is hoping for 7.5 million pre-registrations before the launch date on September 22, which would unlock 1,000 additional Aeos Tickets for players. Considering the recent number of pre-registrations and console downloads, it seems that number will be reached soon with the current amount of hype and expectation for launch.

Pokémon Unite is a Pokémon-based MOBA game in which trainers can choose their own Pokémon and defeat opponents. Players then have to collect the Aeos energy dropped by opposing Pokémon and deposit it into one of the goal zones to score points and secure a win.

The current roster has expanded to include over 20 different Pokémon from across the series history, include most of the Generations. Players can download the Switch version now for free from the Nintendo eShop. Pre-registration for the mobile version launching on September 22 can be accessed from the Google Play Store on Android devices and the Apple App store on iOS devices.
