Pokemon UNITE - Server Downtime Schedule + Battle Pass 10 release today - Cover

If you try logging on to Pokemon UNITE, you’ll be greeted with a server downtime alert. The schedule for server maintenance lasts for a day and once it finishes, a new Pokemon and the Battle Pass 10 will release in the game.

Mew is the new Pokemon coming to UNITE. Undeniably, this Pokemon is one of the most powerful ones from its Generation. Here’s everything you need to know about Pokemon UNITE’s server downtime and Battle Pass 10 release.

Pokemon UNITE server downtime and Battle Pass 10 release

From September 1 to September 2, 2022, Pokemon UNITE will be down for players across all platforms. This is to give way for the latest update coming to the MOBA-style game featuring our beloved Pokemon.

As for the exact time, listed below are the start and end time for the on-going maintenance in different timezones:

  • PDT – 2:30 PM to 12:00 AM
  • EDT – 5:30 PM to 3:00 AM
  • BST – 10:30 PM to 8:00 AM
  • JST – 6:30 AM to 4:00 PM

After the server downtime finishes, players have access to the new Pokemon, Mew. Moreover, this unit is releasing across all platforms where you can run Pokemon UNITE.

The team behind Pokemon UNITE already shared what to expect from the new character in the game. Here are all of Mew’s abilities so you can decide whether to get them or not.

Mystical Mirage

Creates an area of effect at Mew’s current location, making Mew invincible and giving the user and all allies stealth inside the area of effect. After a set amount of time, opponents in the field receive damage.

Light Screen

Creates a wall that can’t be passed through by opponents. Use Mew’s Electro Ball, Solar Beam, or Surf through the wall to boost their effects! Use it again to move the wall closer to Mew, reducing damage from enemy attacks that pass through it.

Electro Ball

Electro Ball hurls an electric orb, dealing damage to opponents and paralyzing them for a short time. The lower an opponent’s health, the more damage is dealt.


What’s in the Battle Pass 10 of Pokemon UNITE?

As for the Battle Pass 10, it also goes live once the maintenance for the game is completed. Since Mew is releasing, this Pokemon is the highlight of the Battle Pass. It contains a special Holowear for this character to celebrate its release.

Additionally, Azumarill is also getting a Holowear included in the Battle Pass 10.

Other players are also looking forward to the release of Dodrio and Scizor at later dates. The reason for Pokemon UNITE releasing all these special characters is to celebrate the game’s first anniversary.


Expect map changes in the game after the server downtime ends

Once Pokemon UNITE’s servers are online again, players will find themselves playing on a new map. Before this big update, players battled it out on Remoat Stadium. For both Standard and Ranked Battles, this was the map available for players.

However, UNITE is switching it up a bit as the map is switched to the Theia Sky Ruins. This map change will certainly make matches more interesting in the first few weeks since it will take some time for players to adjust.

Furthermore, Zapdos will no longer be the Pokemon teams can fight to take. Instead, Rayquaza will take Zapdos’ place in matches. And as for the wild Pokemon which players can defeat for EXP, we can expect a change in those as well.


Some units will be adjusted in the new patch for Pokemon UNITE

The patch update in the game also introduces buffs and nerfs to some units in the game. Units that will get buffs after the maintenance update wraps up are Buzzwole, Glaecon, and Espeon.

As for units that will be nerfed in the update, Tsareena, Dragonite, and Machamp are getting adjusted once maintenance is over.
