Is Pokémon Unite Pay to Win?

At first glance, Pokémon Unite isn't exactly free-to-play. Players can only earn 2.100 Aeos Coins per week and additional Pokémon can cost anywhere from 5.000 to 10.000 Aeos Coins, so the grind is real. However, there are many ways to earn free coins. You can also earn free Unite cards via login bonuses and challenges, so a good amount of content can be unlocked just by playing.

Some Pokémon are better than others, of course, but even if you don't spend any real money, Pokémon Unite lets you temporarily try out certain Pokémon in matches.

Now this is where the lines start and things start to get hazy. It will at least take three weeks to earn enough money for one of the cheapest Pokémon, not counting the daily login bonuses and other events. It's a grind job, but not essentially pay-to-win.

Os Loaded Items can also be equipped to Pokémon that offer passive buffs to your Pokémon in battle. While their price is more reasonable, they will, by definition, make your Pokémon stronger, giving you a competitive edge. However, you can't buy them with real money and you must reach at least Trainer Level 10 to fill all three item slots, so although you're at a disadvantage compared to longest-playing players, at least , you cannot pay real money to increase your stats.

But, not all are "Flowers"


The line starts to blur when you consider the Aimprovers of Iyou have, items that can increase the level of retained items. While you can unlock them by other means, players who spend money on the Battle Pass will likely have more. Item Enhancers than those who don't, increasing the skills gap. Even worse, you can use Aeos Gems in place of Aeos Tickets to purchase items and item enhancers. This is where the game can look like a pay to win game.

However, in the September 22 update, a new Super Held Item Enhancer It was introduced. A set of these coins is given to all players at levels 10, 12 and 14 and one coin is enough to maximize an item. Another added item is the Max Grade Trial Cards. This card is earned in-game and can be used to turn any item into a level 30 item for one week. These items seem to be easily attainable by completing simple quests through regular play.

The grind in Pokémon Unite is pretty bad, and prior to these additions, serious players may have felt that spending money on the game was unavoidable, as hold items can be increased with their wallet. But we believe these new boosters and cards help to balance the playing field.

While there are Pokémon that are better by default, it's possible to pave the way to unlock them for free. As the game's meta evolves, so does the usefulness of various Pokémon, so a higher-level choice might not be the best Pokémon forever. But the fact that you can buy Aeos tickets with real world money means the odds can change against you if the other player invests a lot of money.
