Pokemon UNITE: Unique map design and gameplay
Contrary to other popular mobile MOBAs, Pokemon UNITE brings in a new map called Aeos island. It is a left-to-right oriented map with only two parallel lanes for the Pokemons to fight on. There is a common jungle area in the middle of the lanes where wild Pokemons and the final legendary Pokemon – Zaptos emerge.
Aeos energy is collected by defeating wild or enemy Pokemons. This energy can then be used to score points in the opponent team’s goal zones. These goal zones are situated on the lanes. At the end of the battle, the team with the most points wins. Players need to work with their teammates to earn points and defend their goal zones to limit opponents’ opportunities to score.
