The regional beta testing for the upcoming title Pokémon Unite has started in Canada and video footage has cropped up on YouTube already. Pokémon Unite was met with a lukewarm reception when it was revealed in the Pokémon Presents video presentation last summer; it’s a free-to-play, multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by TiMi Studios and published by The Pokémon Company for Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch.
Some beta testers are having their footage removed from YouTube soon after it’s uploaded and this is down to a violation of rules which clearly state “capture or streaming of gameplay is not allowed during the regional beta test.”
As Twitter account @CentroLeaks pointed out yesterday, there’s a few screen grabs that show us how the game will make money with a Battle Pass as well as some gameplay footage that, at the time of writing, has not been taken down:
Is anyone still salty that they hyped us up for a week for this game now that Sinnoh remakes have been announced?
It’s actually fun af, they’ve got the beta out in Canada.
Mm it’s really strange how it got removed on the site but, the battle pass looks really neat.
Well serves those impatient idiots right. I’m glad they’re taking action on pre-release recordings. So greedy just to be “first” for views or to make a quick buck.
Or, maybe, people just want to see more gameplay in general? I remember when Smash 4 was still in development and I latched on to whatever bit of gameplay I could find
It confuses me how every social media platform except for the smaller ones like WordPress are just banning content/accounts for no reason.
Yeah, I find it a bit strange.
Not buying that game. It is more disappointing than having Avery, Gordie, Allister and Hop as characters on Nintendo switch pokemon games.
We would be dead if we did a drinking game for every time you mentioned each one of those characters for no reason, give it a rest
