We might get a new Pokémon, but a balance patch and other changes are essentially guaranteed.
Pokémon UNITEs current Ranked Season and battle pass are set to end on April 27, and with that, TiMi Studio has set the times for its next big maintenance period.
Set to run from around 4:30pm CT on April 27 to 2am CT on April 28, this update should push Ranked Season 4 live, along with the games seventh battle pass and some additional content like in-game events and updates.
During this maintenance period, players will be unable to log into UNITE at all, and players must claim all Ranked Season 3 and UNITE in the Spotlight battle pass rewards before it begins, if they want to receive them all.
Typically, TiMi adds several new features or updates existing ones during these larger updates, whether they be purely visual upgrades or changes to gameplay mechanics. In the past, this has included adding new event menus, Held Items, and simple changes to the games user interface.
Players should expect some form of balance patch, listing changes for playable Pokémon, items, and the games maps. We might even get a surprise launch for the games next playable Pokémon, which many think will be a Speedster, largely due to the fact we have yet to receive a post-launch Speedster outside of Zeraora as DLC.
Keep an eye on the various UNITE pages for updates once maintenance ends, though we might get some sneak peeks throughout the day ahead of the game going down.
