While its initial welcome was quite warm (which is nice), Pokémon Unite has been gaining fans since its launch in July. For avid fans of the series, one of the pluses is the cast of characters, which includes unusual, and therefore welcome, collections.
While some fan favorites like Pikachu and Charizard are out there, the list includes a good mix of characters you might not necessarily expect, like Cramorant, Crustle, Eldegoss, and Absol – all good Pokémon, but ones that usually aren’t. get a spot in the spotlight.
Conversation with Famitsu (translation provided by Nintendo everything), Pokémon Unite Producer Masaaki Hoshino explains the rationale behind this choice:
“We chose Pokémon based on how easy it is for players to choose their fighting style by looking at them. As a Pokémon fan, I wanted a wide variety of Pokémon to participate in the game. This includes eccentric peaks like Crustle that we wanted to explore. all the possibilities around which Pokémon can be present in the game. “
What about wild Pokémon?
“We selected Wild Pokémon based on how well they matched the atmosphere of the scene. In short: if you defeat Rotom, he will start destroying your opponent’s target. This was based on information in the Pokédex that describes how Rothom can enter and disable electronic devices. “
With Gardevoir, Blissey, Blastoise (who can now be dressed as a firefighter), Mamoswine and Sylveon joining the roster since launch, and Greedent also on the way, the roster has only improved over time.
