The Pokemon spinoff game is out now on mobile devices. Here's how to carry your progress over from the Nintendo Switch version.

Two months after it launched on Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Unite has arrived on mobile devices. The free-to-play Pokemon spinoff game is now available to download on Google Play and the Apple App Store, and players can even share their progress between the Switch and mobile versions. Here's a rundown on how to share your Pokemon Unite save data across the two versions.

How to share Pokemon Unite save data across Switch and mobile

Your Pokemon Unite progress is tied to the Nintendo account or Pokemon Trainer Club account you link when you begin the game. To share your data between the Switch and mobile versions, you must log in with that same linked account when you first start the game on a new device.

Keep in mind that you must log in with your existing account the first time you start the game if you hope to carry over your progress. If you begin playing on a new device without linking, new data will be created, which means you'll no longer be able to link your existing progress.

Pokemon Unite is free to download and play, with optional in-game purchases. Unlike most other multiplayer Nintendo Switch games, a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is not required to play Pokemon Unite online. The mobile and Switch versions of the game are the same in terms of gameplay and content.

To coincide with the mobile launch of Pokemon Unite, the Pokemon Company has rolled out a big update that introduces a variety of new content and features to the game, including its second battle pass, new held items and a spectator mode that allows you to watch other players' matches. The Pokemon Company will also distribute 2,000 Aeos Tickets to all players beginning Sept. 29 to celebrate surpassing 9 million downloads on Switch.

Get ready to jump into exciting Pokémon team battles, as Pokémon UNITE, which was previously released for Nintendo Switch™, is now available for iOS and Android devices. To coincide with the mobile release of the game, a new battle pass dubbed “Galactic Ghost 094” has begun.


Because over five million Trainers preregistered for the mobile version of Pokémon UNITE before its release, every user who has played the mobile version by Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 7:59 a.m. PDT will receive the Unite license for Pikachu (which lets you play as the popular Pokémon) along with the special Festival Style: Pikachu Holowear. Not only that, but every Trainer will also receive 1,000 Aeos tickets, which can be exchanged for in-game items. If you already have the Unite license for Pikachu, you will receive Aeos coins instead.

Plus, players who link their Nintendo Account or Pokémon Trainer Club account in both the Nintendo Switch and mobile versions of Pokémon UNITE can use the gifts received from the mobile version preregistration campaign on the Nintendo Switch version of the game as well.


A new feature called Unite squads has been added to Pokémon UNITE as well. Unite squads connect you with other players by allowing you to create your own squad or search for already existing squads to join. By using squad tags, you can form or join a squad of like-minded Trainers. Do you want a team that aims to be the best by pushing each other to succeed? Or perhaps you would prefer a squad in which you can relax and have fun together. Use or search for squad tags that fit your playstyle, and you’re bound to find the perfect teammates.


When Pokémon UNITE launched on Nintendo Switch, players could receive the Unite license for Zeraora as a launch bonus. However, mobile players can still earn the ability to play as this Mythical Pokémon (as well as a few other rewards) by completing a special mission. Accomplishing this mission simply requires winning a certain number of battles. Here’s what you can earn:

Win a total of 2 battles – 100 Aeos tickets
Win a total of 8 battles – 450 Aeos coins
Win a total of 16 battles – 50 item enhancers
Win a total of 32 battles – Unite License: Zeraora
If you already have the Unite license for Zeraora, you will receive Aeos coins instead.

With this release, Pokémon UNITE for both mobile and Nintendo Switch now supports French, Italian, German, and Spanish languages in addition to English.
