The Eevee Festival Brings New Additions to Pokémon Unite
The Pokémon Company has announced the next big event coming to the free-to-play MOBA Pokémon Unite. The Eevee Festival will showcase one of the most popular Pokémon along with new Holowear and two new Eevee evolutions on the list.
New Eevee Evolutions
The two new Eevee evolutions are Umbreon and Leafeon. Eevee-lutions are the cute term for the different elemental evolutions of Eevee. Umbreon, the Dark-type Eevee-lution, arrives on May 25th, while Leafeon, the Grass-type, follows on June 8th.
New fast-paced matches themed “Eevee Appeal-o-rama” will allow players to try out all the Eevee-lutions in the game released so far. From May 25th, players on both teams will play as Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon. Additionally, wild Eevee will be found across the map, including Gigantamax Eevee. By completing the quick match and earning rewards, players can earn Unite licenses for Espeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.
It wouldn’t be a Pokémon Unite event without amazing new Holowear to dress up your favorite Mons. Matching plaid Holowear will be released over the next few weeks for all Eevee Pokémon.
Battle Pass 16
Afterward, Battle Pass 16 arrives on June 12th. The new battle pass will include knight-style fashion items, including a Knight Holowear outfit for Scizor. Battle Pass 16 runs from June 12th to July 21st.
Pokémon Unite is free to download and play (with optional premium battle passes) on Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android mobile devices.
