Update: As was promised yesterday, new fighter Gardevoir is now available in Pokémon Unite.
Alongside the new character’s inclusion, it’s also been announced that “a few bugs” have been addressed, including an issue that arose when equipping Charizard with the Muscle Band.

Original Article (Tue 27th Jul, 2021 16:45 BST): If you’ve been getting stuck into Pokémon Unite, the free-to-play Pokémon MOBA now available on Switch, you’ll be pleased to know that the game’s roster is getting a boost tomorrow.

Gardevoir joins a lineup that already contains a pleasingly varied mix of characters including the likes of Pikachu (of course), Crustle, Absol, Gengar, and more. Here’s the current full lineup:
Remember, Zeraora is available as a free bonus for all players who log in to the Switch version of the game by 31st August.
