Pokemon Unite - All New Upcoming Pokemon Still to Come

By Sam Woods

July 22, 2021

Pokemon Unite finally released yesterday and has, maybe surprisingly after the reaction it received initially, already started to build a pretty big fanbase.

The Pokemon MOBA, as it’s been called, is free to play and easily accessible to both new players to the MOBA genre as well as relative veterans.

Undoubtedly, part of what’s made the game so successful on launch is the fact that it comes bearing the Pokemon name and is filled with plenty of recognisable creatures.

However, with the monetisation model that the game is using, you can bet that there will be a bunch of familiar monsters coming to the game in the future, including some we’ve already heard about.

So, with that in mind, here is every new and upcoming Pokemon that we know about coming to Pokemon Unite.

Pokémon UNITE Now Available on Nintendo Switch!

Two of the three Kanto Starters, Charizard and Venusaur, made their way into Pokemon Unite ready for launch. Unfortunately, the third, Blastoise, just missed out.

The Water-type Pokemon will arguably be one of the most anticipated additions to the title, simply due to its recognition, power and nostalgia factor.

Unfortunately, there’s no release date for Blastoise in Pokemon Unite just yet.


Gardevoir is a Fairy and Psychic-type Pokemon who will likely slot right into the meta when it arrives

In the mainline games, Gardevoir has some solid stats, so it just remains to be seen which role it fits into. If I had to guess, I’d probably put it in the Supporter role, or failing that, All-Rounder.

Like Blastoise, there is no release date for Gardevoir in Pokemon Unite.

More Upcoming Pokemon in Pokemon Unite

While it’s not been confirmed which Pokemon will be coming, in a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, they stated that “Blastoise, Gardevoir and other Pokemon” won’t be ready for launch.

This means that, although we don’t know what they are yet, there are more Pokemon in the pipeline – potentially coming soon!

We’ll be sure to update this post when more are announced.
