Release Date July 21st, 2021
Release Time 7:00 AM UTC

Why July 21st?

A simple explanation from Japanese fans often rings true across games of different genres – Japanese companies tend to release games before Japanese holidays, to give players plenty of time to play the game as much as possible.

Japanese audiences will enjoy a four-day weekend from July 22nd to July 25th, so it's likely that the release was scheduled for Wednesday, July 21st to coincide with the holiday.

Zeraora was Available Until August 31st

Players who played the Nintendo Switch version of the game before August 31st recieved a Zeraora Unite License for free. Those who miss the availability window will still have the chance to receive Zeraora by completing the Zeraora Mision Event!
