Pokemon UNITE is coming out on the Nintendo Switch on July 21st, 2021, at 7:00 AM UTC.

Release Date Nintendo Switch: July 21st, 2021
Mobile/iOS: September 2021
Release Time Nintendo Switch: 7:00 AM UTC
Mobile/iOS: Currently Unknown

Zeraora Available Until August 31st

There's more good news – players who play the Nintendo Switch version of the game before August 31st will receive Zeraora's Unite License for free! The official twitter also confirmed that mobile players will have an opportunity to receive Zeraora as well.

Players who miss the availability window will still have the option to receive Zeraora in-game through special missions which will be added at a later date.

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.

Follow Twitter Accounts for More Details

Fans are keeping a sharp eye on both the English and Japanese Twitter accounts for Pokemon UNITE. As each account is releasing content at a different pace, it's possible that only one or the other will feature more details about the exact release time, so it's best to follow both accounts just to be sure.
