How to Play Pokémon Unite on PC with BlueStacks

The newest and most exciting MOBA to hit the market on Nintendo Switch has finally launched on mobile as well. Pokémon Unite is a very interesting title, which takes the popular and massively popular Pokémon creatures and has them duke it out in the field in a series of short matches to determine which team can score the most points before time runs out. And in true MOBA fashion, players can choose from a variety of Pokémon and use them in real-time battles to farm points, as well as engage against other players to steal theirs.

While Pokémon Unite doesn’t do much new by itself, it’s a brand new direction for the IP, being a game with real-time combat and lots of action, as opposed to the turn-based monster-catching gameplay that is so popular in the mainline franchise. This new way of using Pokémon to fight in-game is a very novel aspect for the IP, which hides a surprisingly deep and complex combat system and mechanics under the surface.

A typical match in Pokémon Unite lasts 10 minutes, as determined by the timer, during which teams of 5 players each must venture into the field and hunt wild Pokémon to collect points and experience. While hunting, players can level up, learn new skills, and even evolve to stronger forms. On the other hand, the points can be taken to an enemy’s goals in order to dunk them into the hoops and add them to their team’s score. At the end of the timer, the team with the most points will win the match.
