Pokémon Unite: MOBA meaning and why fans are mad!



Last week there were some really good announcements for the Pokémon series including Pokémon Snap and Pokémon Café. While both of these announcements were received well, the announcement of Pokémon Unite has only resulted in a large amount of fans becoming mad. Here you’ll discover the meaning of a MOBA game and why fans are so enraged.

As an example of fans being mad about the announcement, Nintendo Life reports that the Pokémon Unite presentation video currently has over 150,000 dislikes with only 70,000 likes in rebuttal. This suggests that there’s more people online who are disappointed and angry with the announcement in opposition to those who are open to the idea of a Pokémon game in the mould of League Of Legends.

Below you’ll discover the meaning of a MOBA game and why fans are so mad.

Pokémon Unite: What is the meaning of MOBA?

Some Pokémon Unite fans are asking what is the meaning of MOBA and it basically translates to Multiplayer Online Battle Arena.

This is the basic meaning of MOBA and Pokémon Unite has been compared to one of the genre’s most renowned properties, League Of Legends.

As for what the gameplay involves, it will be free-to-play on mobile and Nintendo Switch. It’ll see squads of players duke it out in five-versus-five battle arenas with various control points.

You’ll be able to level up and evolve your Pokémon so they learn some new moves, and the basic gist of the game is to score as many points as possible until the time runs out.

When does Pokémon Unite MOBA come out?

There is no release date for when the Pokémon Unite MOBA will come out.

The game’s release date is currently listed as TBD (To Be Determined), so it’s possible the Pokémon Unite MOBA will come out later this year or in 2021.

Either way, not everyone is thrilled with the announcement.

Pokémon Unite Tencent

One of the reasons some fans are mad about the Pokémon Unite announcement is because of the involvement of Tencent.

Pokémon Unite is developed by Tencent’s TiMi Studios who are also responsible for mobile games Honor Of Kings, Arena Of Valor, and Call Of Duty Mobile (via The Verge).

There are also many fans who are simply mad about the upcoming MOBA because of the hype and anticipation that surrounded its announcement following the well-received reveals of Snap and Café.
