Almost two months after first launching on Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Unite is coming to mobile devices. The free Pokemon spinoff game will be available for download from September 22nd on Google Play and the Apple App Store, and players can even share their saved data between the Switch and mobile versions. Here is how.
How to share data stored in Pokemon Unite on Switch and mobile devices
Your Pokemon Unite progress is tied to the Nintendo account or Pokemon Trainer Club account that you linked at the start of the game. To share your saved data between the Switch and mobile versions, you’ll need to sign in with the same account that you originally linked when you first started the game on a new device.

Remember, if you want to transfer your progress, you will need to log in to your existing account the first time you start the game. If you start playing on a new device without a link, new saved data will be created, which means you will no longer be able to link your existing saved data.
Pokemon Unite is free to download and play with optional in-game purchases. Unlike most other multiplayer Nintendo Switch games, aA 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.
In time for the mobile launch of Pokemon Unite, the Pokemon Company is rolling out a major update that introduces new content and features to the game, including the second Battle Pass, new held items, and a spectator mode that lets you watch other players’ games. The Pokemon Company will also be distributing 2,000 Aeos tickets to all players starting September 29th to celebrate the over 9 million downloads on Switch.
