Sylveon & Mamoswine will be Pokemon Unite's next characters

Whether you go for the brutish Mamoswine or the elegant Sylveon, you'll have new characters to play in Pokemon Unite soon.


Pokemon Unite has continued to be quite the gift to Pokemon fans in the free-to-play MOBA genre. There are so many pocket monsters to draw from for characters in the game and TiMi Studios seems to be on the fast track to getting new ones ready for regular release. Such is the case with Sylveon and Mamoswine, who will be the next upcoming characters to come to the game’s playable roster.

Mamoswine and Sylveon were revealed for Pokemon Unite during the Pokemon Presents event on August 18, 2021. Pokemon Unite has seen quite a number of pocket monsters enter its roster - it does have the massive Pokemon library to draw from after all. That said, Mamoswine and Sylveon should be welcome additions. Mamoswine is a bruiser of a frosty baor-themed beast. It can freeze opponents, lift them up with its mighty tusks, and slam them for good damage. It can also charge and rampage in an area, knocking into enemies on the initial charge and then dealing area-of-effect damage to those around.

Meanwhile, Sylveon is a fan-favorite as the Fairy-type evolution of Eevee. This little cutie can lock down opponents with a cone-based area-of-effect attack and persistent damage for keeping the attack active. It can also call down celestial beams to hit multiple opponents around it. Both Pokemon have been confirmed to be coming to Pokemon Unite in the future, though no timeline was given just yet. Nonetheless, it should definitely be something to look forward to.

That wasn’t the only news for Pokemon Unite. TiMi studios also confirmed that the mobile version of Unite is on the way in September and that pre-registration on applicable mobile devices is available now. Stay tuned for more Pokemon info and updates and be sure to check out all of the news from today’s Pokemon Presents.
