[Leaked news] Pokemon Unite may not a MOBA game

Context

We had some leaked news after the interview with Masaki Hoshino (Producer of “Pokemon Unite”)
Masaki Hoshino reveals some secret

How To Play

The basic rule of the game is to defeat the wild Pokemon on the field to get points, and to score them in the opponent’s goal, it will be their own score, and the team with the most points will win.
In Pokemon Unite, when you defeat a wild Pokemon, you will get points and if you put it on the target of the enemy, you will get points,
So it was great when the team defeated Pokemon that the opponent was capable of defeating first.
It will be a donation. Even if you can’t win a one-on-one battle and run away, this game can have various contributions, such as “that person defeats a wild Pokemon”.
Therefore, person who is not good at MOBA games can shine in Pokemon Unite.

Is It a MOBA game?

Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) is a subgenre of strategy video games in which each player controls a single character as part of a team competing against another team of players, usually on a map in an isometric perspective.
The ultimate objective is to destroy the opposing team’s main structure with the assistance of periodically-spawned computer-controlled units that march forward along set paths.
However, MOBA games can have other victory conditions, such as defeating every player on the enemy team. Player characters typically have a set of unique abilities that improve over the course of a game and which contribute to the team’s overall strategy…
From the How To Play section, we can see: It’s like a MOBA game, but they want more.
They want to add some unique style, which only exists in Pokemon Unite. That’s “TSBG” (team strategy battle game) instead of MOBA.
Pokemon Unite is not only a MOBA game

Why do they choose the TSGB genre, Why 5 vs 5?

It’s the first 5 vs 5 team strategy battle of Pokemon games.
There are various genres in Pokemon games. There are various things that you can play one-on-one, such as playing against a computer and playing action like “Pokken”. But never had the style of online team competition.
Why 5 vs 5, not 4 vs 4 or 6 vs 6:
“Pokemon Unite” has two top and bottom roads on the field. In the case of 4 to 4, if the top and bottom numbers are the same, the strengths may be antagonized. That’s why Hoshino allows 5 pokemons per team.

Why do they apply cross-platform (smartphones and Nintendo Switch) for the game?

Regardless of allowing the game run on smartphones can reduce the number of Nintendo Switch sold.
They want Nintendo Switch and mobile users to be “Unite” as the name implies.
So players can choose to play on the one that best suits them.
