Balance Patch incoming.
Previously announced for Pokémon UNITE before the game’s mobile release, today, news has broken that players will not have to wait much longer for the Twin Tusk Pokémon. In fact, you won’t even have to wait an entire week as the Ice/Ground-type, Mamoswine, will make its debut on September 29, 2021, alongside a brand new update.
Not only is the update a requirement for the addition of Mamoswine, but due to a number of bugs that have popped up as part of Version 18.104.22.168, such as a bug where Crustle gains “an unintended strength boost in certain circumstances,” this patch comes at a good time, especially when there an issue at play where players are unable to claim the “Preregistration Campaign rewards” they’re entitled to due to pre-registering for the mobile release.
On the plus side, while players will need to wait for the official patch notes to come in, at least we have a brand-new character spotlight showcasing Mamoswine, which you can see right here:
