Pokemon Unite, the newest MOBA to hit the video game world, releases today and sports an initially impressive roster of 19 different Pokemon, with a 20th available for those who download the game early.

The roster ranges from fan favourites that include the likes of Pikachu, Charizard and Gengar, to some of the slightly more obscure Pokemon from the series – including Crustle, Cramorant and Eldegoss.

To unlock the 20th Pokemon in the game, however, there are a couple of criteria players need to meet.

Here is how you can get yourself Sun and Moon’s Mythical Pokemon, Zeraroa, for free in Pokemon Unite.

How to Get Zeraora for Free in Pokemon Unite on Nintendo Switch

The first step to ensuring that you get Zeraora for free in Pokemon Unite is to download and log into the game before August 31 this year. It can be downloaded free of charge from the Nintendo eShop.

Following that, you will need to go mail (press X and scroll down to mail). There you will have a system message for a launch bonus – if you click this, then click claim Zeraora will be unlocked for you to use in battle!

How is Zeraora in the game?

Zeraora falls into the speedster category, which means, as you’d expect, it excels in moving quickly.

Its official description and stats from the Pokemon Unite website are as follows:

“Zeraora can close the distance between itself and its opponents as fast as lightning, dealing massive amounts of damage all at once.”

  • Offence – 3.5/5
  • Endurance – 1.5/5
  • Mobility – 4/5
  • Scoring – 3/5
  • Support – 0.5/5

When performing its Unite Move, Zeraora uses a powerful electric blast, causing a field of lightning in the play area.
