Pokémon Unite tournament: first esport competition to come
TiMi Studio Group has announced a piece of news that should be of great interest to Pokémon Unite players. An official tournament will be organized in a few days. It will take place on September 19 and will allow 256 teams to show the extent of their talent. This first Pokémon Unite tournament is also a strong sign, while the game is expected at the turn in relation to its dimension esport. You can already participate in the ladder by playing ranked games and trying to get the Master rank. However, the adrenaline of real esports competition cannot be compared. For the moment, we do not yet know if the developers will make the effort or not to set up a competitive scene … The Pokémon universe generally contains a majority of casual gamers and keen collectors. But the style MOBA remains one of the most suitable genres for competition.
Pokémon Unite tournament: who can participate?
Registrations for the Pokémon Unite tournament are already open. In theory, almost everyone can participate. The only small problem is that you have to fill out a registration form where the questions are written in Japanese … We can therefore assume that the vast majority of teams will be Japanese. But if you ever have a bilingual boyfriend, know that you have to come forward before the September 13 ! The deadline could even be brought forward if the tournament is ever a victim of its success. If more than 256 teams register, there will be a draw to determine the lucky ones.
Also note: you must have more than 16 years old to participate. Players who are under 20 (the age of majority in Japan) must obtain the consent of a legal guardian. Like what, Pokémon is not only for children and it is very serious! Note also that the Pokémon Unite tournament will take place on Switch. While the release of Pokémon Unite Mobile is soon, Nintendo Switch remains the only platform available for the moment.
A community tournament that should get good publicity
This Pokémon Unite tournament seems for the moment primarily community. The organizers have not communicated on a possible cash prize. However, we imagine that there will surely be plenty of gifts nice to win. Whether these are in-game elements (skins) or derivative products, all are present in quantity in Pokémon! In addition, all players are allowed and encouraged to broadcast their games. This is a good opportunity to invade the streaming platforms and give an excellent publicity shot at Pokémon Unite.
