Just one week after the official release of Pokemon Unite, it’s looking like plenty of new Pokemon will be released in the future.
After being available on the most recent mobile beta testing, Gardevoir and Blastoise are finally ready to go live in Pokemon Unite. Psychic and Fairy type Gardevoir will be the first new Pokemon after the game officially released on Nintendo Switch, but will definitely not be the last. According to data miners, there’s a sign of Blissey being released as the third new Pokemon in line, with the potential to see Sylveon and plenty of other well-known Pokemon.
Blastoise, Gardevoir, and other Pokémon also can’t wait to join you on Aeos Island!

After the upcoming releases of Gardevoir and Blastoise, players are likely in for another treat. New indications from data miners say that Blissey will be coming to the game as well and will be a new addition in the support role.
Just like in the main Pokemon games, Chansey and Blissey will have a lot of utility to help out teammates. According to data miners, Blissey will have Bliss Assistance as its Unite Move, which will leap towards a friendly Pokemon and provide it with an egg that grants a shield and increased damage capabilities. Blissey will also share any damage received by the friendly Pokemon, making it a great tool for protecting a teammate.
It also seems like Sylveon will be making its entrance to Pokemon Unite as the first Eeveelution. The information about Sylveon is still very limited and the Pokemon could go in different directions when it comes to role and playstyle.

As with any other MOBA, it’s expected that Pokemon Unite will have new consistent releases when it comes to playable Pokemon. Since it’s a new game with a big universe to build around, there may be hundreds of potential Pokemon entering the game in the future.
Some of these were recently revealed by the Twitter account Eclipse, which is known for its reliable information leaks. The list includes Pokemon that could be either playable or wild pokemon such as Bouffalant or Zapdos. On the list are some interesting Pokemon like Victini, Xerneas, and Jirachi, which are all fan favorites.
A total of 15 Pokemon with an “unidentified role” are mentioned, so expect that upcoming releases to have some of these included.
