Ahead of Pokémon UNITE’s next major update, which will launch Ranked Season 4, TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company have revealed several details for what content is coming to the game on April 28.
The games seventh battle pass is themed around Japan and the country’s iconic cherry blossom trees. This includes traditional Japanese Avatar Items and a festive Premium Holowear for Blastoise that changes almost all of its animations into flashy, stylized ones. Charizard is also getting a standard Ninja Style Holowear as part of this battle pass too.
A new battle pass tie-in event has also been announced, tasking players with watering a sakura tree to claim rewards. This will also include a new event exchange, with players earning “Flower Coins” by completing missions and logging in daily from April 28 to June 12. This event adds new Holowear for Eldegoss and Trevenant.
Ranked Season 4 will also begin on April 28, with ranks resetting based on players’ rankings from the previous season. New rewards have been added that are almost identical to the previous season, though the items have been slightly changed to represent Ranked Season 4 and a new Knight Style Mamoswine Holowear will be available for anyone who can reach Ultra Class.
The final piece of news included in this early update is the continued celebration of Pokémon UNITE Day, which TiMi lists as a two-day event starting on “the first Saturday of each month.”
This time, UNITE Day falls on May 7 and 8, which means players can play as every Pokémon for free over the weekend and various sales on Holowear and other items will go live. Players will also earn more Aeos Coins and Aeos Energy from battles too.
More details about all of this content will be shared leading up to and after the maintenance period running later today—when most of it goes live. A new balance patch and other news could also be included at some point too.
