Magic Is in the Air! Magician Pokémon Meowscarada to Join Pokémon UNITE This Festive Season

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Themed In-Game Events

London, United Kingdom – 6 December 2023 – Today, The Pokémon Company International announced two exciting additions coming soon to the playable roster in Pokémon UNITE, along with themed activities guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit.

Meowscarada Pounces upon Pokémon UNITE on 7 December
The highly anticipated Meowscarada is heading to Aeos Island! This Speedster is the first Pokémon originally discovered in the Paldea region to join the fray in Pokémon UNITE. Meowscarada’s Ability, Overgrow, allows it to vanish into leaves for a short period of time after its max HP is reduced to half or less. Once triggered, Meowscarada’s movement speed and damage dealt increase for a short while, and it can even recover HP during this time by dealing damage to an opposing Pokémon.
You can obtain a Unite license for Meowscarada from 7 December 2023 at 7:00 to 9 January 2024 at 23:59 UTC by taking part in the Meowscarada’s Flower Petal Challenge in-game event. Complete missions to collect petals, and collect 100 petals in each of the four colours to unlock Meowscarada!

Festive Fun with a Pokémon UNITE Twist! Snowball Battle in Shivre City Returns
Shivre City is set to bring the festive spirit from 7 December at 7:00 to 30 December 2023 at 23:59 UTC! In a special type of battle, turn KO’d Pokémon into snowmen and defeat Delibird scattered around the map to receive a present containing a random one-time battle item that replaces your current item. Use it to switch up your strategy and keep the opposing team on their toes—think of it as the gift that keeps on giving!
Plenty of Presents! Prize Machine Event Returns
You can log in between 7 December 2023 at 7:00 and 8 January 2024 at 23:59 UTC to receive 10 Holiday Balls every day at no cost, up to a maximum of 100! Holiday Balls can be used in the Prize Machine for a chance to obtain a wide range of fantastic gifts, including Holowear. You can only use Holiday Balls on designated collections on the same day you obtain them, as they will be reset the day after you obtain them.

Metagross Coming Soon to Pokémon UNITE
Metagross is set to join the fray in Pokémon UNITE on 26 December 2023. Stay tuned to the official Pokémon social media channels to learn more.
