And those are all of the balancing changes in the Pokemon Unite October 20 update. But who do you think will rise to the top of the Pokemon Unite Tier List after this patch?

Additionally, Pokemon Unite fans are not happy. This is because the game is charging players an extortionate price for a new Aloalan Ninetails Holowear.

Finally, Pokemon Unite is now on smartphones as well as console. But is Pokemon Unite better on mobile or Nintendo Switch?
