Pokémon United launched today, offering players free MOBA action. As is the case with most free titles, there are plenty of outlets for microtransactions, with premium currency and other quality of life items to make it easier to unlock delicious cosmetic items.
What is the price of the Pokémon Unite Battle Pass?
The Battle Pass is the first of its kind for the Pokemon franchise. Pokemon games have largely remained contained experiences that rarely used microtransactions. Even in mobile titles like Pokemon GO, they’ve been for in-game items. Pokemon Unite is clearly a little different and uses more service-type staples.
The Battle Pass is available for 490 Aeon Gems, the premium currency of the game. There is also an option to pay 945 Aeon Gems to instantly get the Battle Pass and 10 levels. 490 Aeon Gems costs $ 7.99, while 1220 Aeon Gems costs $ 19.99.

How many levels are there in the Pokemon Unite Battle Pass?
Once you have the Battle Pass you can gain experience and levels by playing the game. The more you play, the more levels you will climb. There are 90 levels in total, and it’s filled with rewards along the way. To instantly purchase the premium version, you will get a Hip Hop Pikachu skin, which dresses Pikachu in a hoodie and an electric bolt-on flat visor. It’s deliciously cute. At the other end of the scale, at level 90, a Captain style for Cinderace, if you want to feel a bit of a pirate.
On top of that, there are a ton of rewards to use here. There are over a thousand Aeos tickets as well as clothes for your avatar. There are also item enhancers up for grabs. There are some rewards available for those who do not purchase the premium version of the Battle Pass, although they are much less frequent and valuable.
