Pokemon Unite: How to Get Zeraora on Switch

This Mythical Pokemon can be collected for free for a limited time.

Pokemon Unite has launched on Nintendo Switch! The multiplayer online battle area game (MOBA) allows players to compete in five-vs-five real-time Pokemon battles with other real people.

When players first begin Pokemon Unite, they’ll only be able to choose from a few different Pokemon to control in each battle. However, they can unlock more Pokemon over time. Plus, for a limited time, players can add the Mythical Pokemon Zeraora to their collections for free.

Zeraora will be available to collect on Switch from July 21, 2021 until August 31, 2021. Here’s how to collect this powerful Pokemon!

The mobile version of Pokemon Unite is expected to be released in September 2021.
