Beta testing is done to ensure the performance of the game and its overall gaming experience to the player base.

About Pokémon UNITE
The game is being developed by The Pokémon Company, in collaboration with TiMi Studio (a subsidiary of the Tencent group), one of the best in the gaming industry. Pokémon UNITE is an upcoming cross-platform, multiplayer online battle arena (or, MOBA) game that is being made for Nintendo Switch, Android and IOS.
In the game, the players will have a face-off in a 5v5 team-based battle. Cooperation with teammates will play a huge role in the game apart from the basics, i.e. catching, evolving Pokémons and defeating the opponents in a Pokémon battle. It is time-specified, so whoever makes the most point within the given time period, wins the match. It requires a tactical approach and well planned out strategies, it is different from the other Pokémon games out there (both visually and gameplay-wise).
In short, we can compare UNITE with popular MOBA PC titles like DOTA 2 or League of Legends. Let us see how this first beta session goes and till then we have to wait to get our hands and those who don’t live in Canada, on the game.
