It Sure Looks Like Pokémon Unite's Microtransactions are Pay to Win

MMORPG.com 22 July, 2021 - 08:11pm

It looks like Pokemon Unite’s microtransactions may actually be pay to win as stat boosting items obtained with premium currency.

If you’re not too familiar with Pokemon Unite, it’s TiMi Studio game (owned by Tencent) where it has a Pokemon flavor on the MOBA genre. As noted by TechRaptor, it looks like several players in the Pokemon Unite community have noted the pay to win nature of the mictrotransaction mechanism.

The currency is part of the concern noted by the community. There are three different currencies available in Pokemon Unite. The first is Aeos Coins which you can earn in-game from various activities and events. You can earn up to 2100 per week through battles.

The second currency is Aeos Tickets which can be earned through certain in-game events. The third currency is Aeos Gems which is the premium currency in Pokemon Unite. You can only earn Aeos Gems by shelling out real money.

The pay to win alarms come in with stat boosting items. You can buy these items through the Aeos Emporium using Aeos Coins and Aeos Tickets. However, if you don’t have enough of either currency, you can acquire these items by spending the premium Aeos Gems currency. In other words, you’re paying real money to acquire stat boosting items via Aeos Gems.

Reddit is, understandably, awash with “buyer beware” posts and comments. For example, this thread attempts to inform others in the community about the monetization schemes by frustratingly slow progress to force you into real-money purchases,

“The main issue here is that after the welcome campaign is done, the unlock process is glacial. You will spend months unlocking 1-2 characters at a time, as the feed of currency is very low, and even further, the feed of hard currency is non-existant. I have played 15 games so far and received 0 gems for any part of the experience, and enough soft currency to buy one character.”

Regarding pay to win you can buy tickets with gems which are then spent on the stat boost items. This is called a 3 step currency and is designed to stop people being able to work out the cost of items easily. Its another tactic and a very common one. Its why gems come in bundles that are never equal to the gem cost of anything in-game. Its to deter people from working out value. Essentially it allows the seller to generate their own economy and manipulate it freely.”

Pokemon Unite - How Many Playable Pokemon Are There?

GameRant 22 July, 2021 - 06:31pm

For those that may have missed it, Pokemon Unite is Nintendo's effort to bring the Pokemon franchise to the MOBA genre. Players compete in two teams of five in Unite Battles, aiming to score as many points against the opposing team as they can before the end of the battle. As of launch, there are 20 different Pokemon in Pokemon Unite.

Below are the 20 playable characters in Pokemon Unite, but players should keep in mind that some of them have evolutions. In this game, players start each match as a level one version of the lowest stage of their Pokemon, and then evolve mid battle as they play. In this way, a level one Charmander will eventually become a Charizard, growing stronger as they do. By the end of the match, the player's Pokemon all revert back to their base forms, so some playable characters actually have more than one Pokemon wrapped into them. The gameplay of these evolutions is mostly the same, however.

Pokemon Unite is available now on Switch and later on Mobile.

Pokemon Unite: How to Add Friends

GameRant 22 July, 2021 - 05:52pm

Before players can even add their friends in Pokemon Unite, they must first make it through some basic tutorials. After learning the fundamentals of the game, trainers will have to choose which Pokemon to unlock first. This is an important decision that will determine the course of a player's first few hours in the game. It's an even more important decision for those who are planning to play with friends, as each Pokemon satisfies a different kind of role on a team. To create a well-balanced team with a group of gaming buddies, players should communicate which Pokemon they plan to start with.

Since Pokemon Unite is free to play, fans of the game might have an easy time convincing their friends to jump in. Adding friends in Pokemon Unite requires searching for another player by their Trainer ID. Each player is assigned a Trainer ID when they enter the game for the first time. This random tag of letters and numbers must be shared with anyone that a player wants to befriend in-game. The greatest challenge lies with finding one's own Trainer ID in the menus.

Gamers will be ready to enter battles together once this complex process is complete. Pokemon fans and MOBA fans can come together and find unique things to enjoy about Pokemon Unite, including revolutionary mechanics and fascinating MOBA map designs.

Pokemon is a gargantuan brand in the gaming industry, but that doesn't make it immune to popular trends. Many gamers flock to MOBAs and they expect games in the genre to have certain features. The fact that Pokemon Unite has a battle pass is an example of this. These types of features exist to make the game more fun for players though, and the best way to make the most of it is with some friends.

Pokemon Unite is available now for Nintendo Switch, with a mobile version in the works.

Pokemon Unite: How To Get Holowear Tickets

TheGamer 22 July, 2021 - 02:42pm

Technically these are just skins, although you're only able to obtain them using Pokemon Unite Holowear Tickets. It's not very clear how you can go about earning these, to the extent that lots of people who want new skins have been left scratching their heads when it comes to how to actually get them.

Fortunately, we've been playing tons of Pokemon Unite and know exactly how to efficiently rack up enough Holowear Tickets to get all your favourite skins. Here's our guide on how to get Holowear Tickets in Pokemon Unite.

The only other way to get Holowear Tickets is completely down to chance. In the Energy exchange system - which is basically Pokemon Unite's version of loot boxes - there is a small chance that you might pull Holowear Tickets. Funnily enough, I got ten tickets while I was researching this article, which are the first Holowear Tickets I've got in Pokemon Unite. Unfortunately, Holowear is priced at 18 Holowear Tickets at Zirco's Trading, meaning I still need another eight tickets before I can buy a skin.

Realistically, Pokemon Unite will probably roll out new event-based ways of earning Holowear Tickets in future - it's only been 24 hours since launch, after all. At the time of writing, though, the only way you're getting that Garchomp Holowear is if you get tickets in a loot box or max out the Battle Pass. Good luck!
