A new Pokémon multiplayer online battle arena game, Pokémon Unite, will be launched on iOS and Android in September this year. 

Pokémon Unite is the first Pokémon team strategy battle game where players will compete in five-on-five battles. 

The game takes place on an unexplored ocean island called Aeos Island. Players will be able to evolve their Pokémon with a new form of energy, Aeos energy, and at the start of each match, each Pokémon will have their levels reset. 

As players level up during the match, they can evolve their Pokémon and unlock powerful abilities. 

The Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Unite will be released in July, before the mobile version is released in September.

There are plans to support cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. 

Furthermore, players can sync their progress across different platforms by signing in to their Nintendo account or Pokémon Trainer Club account. 

The Pokémon Company released a cinematic trailer for Pokémon Unite on Thursday.  Pokémons such as Pikachu, Mr. Mime, Absol and Snorlax can be seen in it.
