Pokemon Unite’s second major update is scheduled to release on August 4, and it brings some significant buffs, nerfs, and bug fixes, as well as the arrival of the new Spectate mode.

Despite only being out in the wild for a couple of weeks now, Nintendo and TiMi Studio’s new MOBA title Pokemon Unite is about to receive its second big update as the devs iron out any balancing issues and bugs.

The first major update on July 28 introduced new fighter Gardevoir to the Unite lineup, but this August 4 patch focuses on several buffs and nerfs to Pokemon stats and moves, as well as the new Spectate feature.

Pokemon Unite is getting a Spectate mode – for a while.

As well as the Pokemon stat and move changes listed above, Pokemon Unite will also be getting a spectator mode. It won’t be around for long, however, as TiMi Studio are testing the feature for a couple of days.

The test release of the Spectate feature will begin alongside the update on August 4, 2021, at 12AM PDT and run until August 6, 2021, at 12AM PDT. This is likely so the devs can pick up on any bugs or errors.
