Blastoise Rounds Out the Kanto Stars in Pokemon Unite’s Roster
All the original starters will finally be in Pokémon Unite. Blastoise will be joining the MOBA on September 1st.
Blastoise was already featured in Pokémon Unite’s tutorial and beta, so players have been waiting and watching for the cannon-toting turtle to join the roster. His showcase trailer shows that he is a character of the Defender class. He has some special abilities, such as Rapid Spin, which can make him vulnerable, but his tankiness allows him to withstand attacks and keep the pressure on.
Blastoise is the original starter since Charizards and Venusaurs have been available since Pokémon Unite launched on Switch in July. They’ll all be available when the game launches on mobile devices on September 22. It’s all the same to me, as I’ll be playing Pikachu until they add anyone I like near as much. The character rollout for Pokemon Unite has been strong so far. Gardevoir, Blissey, and Mamoswine have been added.

The latest Pokemon Presents news featured more footage from both the Shining Pearl and Brilliant Diamond remakes. It also showed off some of the larger changes made to the games that seemed missing from the original reveal. Pokemon Legends also got some attention, and it looks a lot better than the initial unveiling. We were able to see how it would feel to navigate an open-world Pokemonentry. The developer of the series, Game Freak, seems to have taken some liberties with almost everything we know about it, including its battle system and how to navigate its wild areas using flying and swimming Pokemon.
