Pokémon UNITE is now available worldwide for Nintendo Switch, which means players can start to play the game and grinding levels. Because Unite is a free-to-play title, it will incorporate various microtransactions for certain parts of the game.
Like most FTP games, UNITE is technically classified as “free-to-start,” which is a common term used to describe a game that’s FTP but offers players optional in-game purchases.
For Unite, the in-game purchases will be represented by Aeon Gems, which can be used instead of the game’s free currency to purchase basic things like cosmetic items for playable Pokémon and the player’s trainer character. The main use for these Aeon Gems will be Unite Licenses, or used to unlock various Pokémon to use in matches, or to upgrade the seasonal battle passes.
Along with earning Aeon Gems through various in-game tasks, players can also purchase them directly through the shop. If you are interested in seeing what bundles are available, here are all of the Aeon Gem offers currently available in UNITE.
