Pokémon Unite Announces Subscription Service (& Fans Aren’t Happy)

fans of pokemon unite began to express their dissatisfaction with the newly announced subscription service that will soon be available in the game. Since the launch of the title, players could choose to play for free and unlock items such as cosmetics along the way, or by purchasing the season pass. Soon however, players will have the option of opting into a new subscription-based service for pokemon uniteand fans aren’t too thrilled with the new model.

pokemon unite was first released in 2021 for the Nintendo Switch and later for mobile devices. The game is similar to MOBAs such as DOTA and League of Legends, where 2 teams compete to knock down the other team’s towers in order to win. In pokemon unite, two teams of Pokémon team up to take down robots to level up and evolve, and collect points to invest in towers to take over the area. Although much simpler than other MOBAs, its simplicity makes this game easy for fans to dive into. Like other MOBAs, pokemon unite allows players to wear different skins for their Pokémon, as well as the ability to purchase a season pass for additional unlockables. Now a new method is being introduced, and so far the reception has not been very warm.

As reported by Serebii.net, pokemon unite introduces subscription membership. Each month, players who purchase the subscription will receive one-time monthly Holowear, two free UNITE license trials, two Holowear license trials per week, new member chat balloons, 10% discount on Trainer Fashion items and 40 gems every day. The subscription was advertised to cost 1150 yen each month, and there are currently no other currency prices advertised. Interestingly enough, content received via subscription cannot be shared between the Switch and Mobile versions of pokemon unite. The announcement of this joining, however, left a bitter taste in the mouths of many fans, and some took to Twitter to say why.

Although it’s optional, many fans are upset with the new system because it’s yet another form of microtransaction in a game that’s already plagued them. twitter user TransRatPunk says their gripe with the game stems from the fact that the game added an already predatory sell feature to a game that already has plenty of it. another user, SlytherinRevie2says the game’s multitude of microtransactions was the reason they stopped playing the game altogether. Finally, the user ImMoonLOL is upset that a subscription service has even been introduced nearly a year after the game’s release, and is overall upset with the microtransaction-heavy state of the game in 2022. Although these users don’t speak for everyone, it’s clear that this new subscription service has many fans upset with the current state of the game.

Although no price has been announced for other regions, this subscription should be introduced soon in pokemon unite. Although the service is optional, fans are generally upset with the amount of microtransactions thrown at them. Many players expressing their displeasure with this news would prefer to see this effort devoted to improving the game as a whole, not just the microtransactions.

Speaking of microtransactions, Serebii.net also reported that the last season pass for pokemon unite was announced alongside the new subscription service, focused on Charizard and Blastoise with a seasonal spring theme. While this news may delight some fans, there’s no doubt that this announcement has left many disappointed with the direction the game is taking.

Amazing. They actually made one of the most predatory games even more predatory AND they advertise it with a Pokémon with greed in the name too

Unite was fun but I have given up on it because of all the microtransactions and it’s costly
