TiMi Studio didn’t waste any time releasing another update for Pokémon UNITE that might be the most detailed in the game’s history.

This patch added Trevenant as the game’s 30th playable Pokémon, pushed the new Pokémon UNITE Championship Series tournament mode live, and reworked several Pokémon with a balance update that should make a sizable impact in matches. 

The changes were made in the All-Rounder category, with Dragonite and Tsareena receiving a handful of meaningful nerfs while Garchomp had its entire core moveset updated to make it more viable. Gengar and Decidueye also received some pretty big changes along with smaller, yet still impactful updates to Talonflame, Lucario, Charizard, and Machamp. 

As always, the balance update is sizable, but the addition of a dedicated tournament mode that has multiple customization options for different types of events might be the most important element of this patch. And don’t forget there is new Holowear to browse in the shop too. 

With all of that in mind, here are full version 1.4.1.2 patch notes for UNITE
