Update [Tue 17th May, 2022 17:30 BST] Pokémon Unite's subscription service has now launched in North America, and it'll cost $9.99 a month.
The goodies included are all the same as was advertised in the Japanese announcement below, but one thing that has become clearer is that you need to subscribe on the platform you're playing on. So, if you subscribe on the Switch, you'll only get your benefits on the Switch version of the game. However, items such as costumes can be shared between versions.
You can get more information on the Club Membership on the Pokémon Unite Support Page.
Original article [Wed 27th Apr, 2022 13:30 BST] TiMi Studio has unveiled a new in-game subscription service for Pokémon Unite, the hugely popular MOBA that recently surpassed 70 million downloads. Called the 'Pokémon Unite Membership', this scheme will give players monthly rewards for signing up for the service.
Don't worry, Pokémon Unite will remain free to play, and the rewards, for now, are mostly cosmetics and costumes, though some extra currency will handed out, too.
Serebii has translated what the monthly subscription service will give, along with one or two bonuses for signing up for the service, which we've listed below (thanks, Serebii!):
- A special Holowear of the month
- Two free license trials
- Two Holoware Licesne trials a week
- Brand new Chat Balloons
- 10% discount on Trainer Fashion
- 40 free Gems every day
As a reward for signing up, you'll also get a fashion set designed around the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa, which is pretty darn pink and pretty darn adorable.
The Pokémon Unite Membership will cost 1150 Yen a month, which equals $8.99 or £7.15, though official pricing outside of Japan has not been revealed yet. We also don't know when the service will launch, but we'll let you know as soon as it does.
