Pokémon’s leap into the mighty MOBA genre has finally arrived, with Pokémon Unite clearly being Nintendo’s latest attempt to make a mark on the eSports scene.
You start the game with your chosen starter Pokémon, can get another through the Events on the main page, and there’ll even be some timed-availability Pokémon that you can take into battle.
However, a more hidden Pokémon that you can get immediately in Pokémon Unite is Zeraora. So, here’s how to get Zeraora in Pokémon Unite for free.
A step-by-step guide to getting Zeraora in Pokémon Unite
To get Zeraora in Pokémon Unite immediately, you need to:
- Return to the main screen and press X to bring up the menu;
- Scroll down to Mail and press A to open;
- In the system Messages folder, you’ll find mail entitled ‘Launch Bonus;’
- Press A on the ‘Launch Bonus’ mail to get the free Zeraora Unite License.
Being the launch day of Pokémon Unite at the time of writing, it’s unclear if anyone who joins later than today will be able to get Zeraora for free in this way.
So, you’ll want to get Zeraora in Pokémon Unite as soon as you can, especially as it’ll add a decent Speedster class Pokémon to your collection.
Zeraora: Expert difficulty Melee Speedster
Zeraora’s speciality is its mobility, with it boasting a decent amount of offence to make it an excellent hit-and-run type of Pokémon, suited to operating between lanes, hiding in the tall grass and pouncing at opportunities.
At launch, four Speedster class Pokémon were available in Pokémon Unite, with Talonflame, Zeraora, Gengar, and Absol fitting into what would generally be considered the Jungler class in this Pokémon MOBA.
Zeraora doesn’t feature the most mobility, nor the most endurance, but it does tie the lead for offence with Gengar and Absol. However, Zeraora’s basic attack is arguably the best of the Speedsters as it paralyses opponents and restores your HP.
Regardless of if you want to play as a Jungler from the start in Pokémon Unite, you’ll want to get Zeraora for free right at the beginning of the game for free.
