POKEMON UNITE IS ALREADY A HUGE HIT ON TWITCH

A HUGE RELEASE.

Pokemon Unite may have only just been released, but the hype is definitely real online – especially on Twitch.

Streaming viewership numbers boomed with streamers like Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid playing the game for 30,000 interested watchers.

Over 200,000 Pokemon fans are watching the newest entry in the series be played live, making it the fourth most-viewed category.

With a seasonal Battle Pass filled to the brim with neat rewards, it seems as though TiMi Studios is aiming to keep a solid player base for months to come.

Alolan Mythical, Zeraora, is also being given away for free in the first few weeks of the game’s launch.
