Fairy Eeveelution Sylveon arrives in Pokémon Unite tomorrow

Over the weekend players of MOBA Pokémon Unite got the news of a new playable character in the form of Sylveon which will be live in the game tomorrow.

This Fairy type will be the first of the nine Eeveelutions – an evolution of Eevee – to appear in Unite. The Eevee line of Pokémon is so popular that a recent expansion of the card game was based on them, so we wouldn’t be surprised if more Eeveelutions were added to the game in the future.

For now, as revealed in the tweet below, Sylveon is a ranged attacker joining Venusaur, Pikachu, Alolan Ninetales, Gardevoir, Greninja, Cinderace and Cramorant in that category.

The reveal trailer doesn’t show us too much with generic energy attacks. Unlike Blastoise, which was also added recently, which seemed to really have a flair for its water attacks.

Outside of Sylveon we also got a look at a skin for fellow ranged attacker Venusaur if you ever thought to yourself “what would a giant leaf frog monster look like in a sharp pinstripe suit?” well Pokémon Unite finally has an answer for you.

The monetisation of this game, even when it comes to cosmetics which don’t affect gameplay, have become a hot topic as the game gets older. While the reception in the comments to this Venusaur skin were middling we saw many more users in love with the recent Gengar space suit skin, so we’re sure lots of money is being brought in regardless.

Pokémon Unite is available now for Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch.
