Pokémon Unite screenshot leaks reveal new playable characters

It’s been over a month since Pokémon MOBA spin-off Pokémon Unite was announced, and new screenshots have now confirmed more additions to the playable roster. 

Announced during last month’s Pokémon Presents livestream, the new game sees two teams of five compete on a League of Legends-inspired battle arena to take control of zones, capture Pokémon and take out opponents. 

In leaks via Twitter account Pokemon Blast News, a new screenshot of the character select screen has confirmed Slowbro, Zeraora, Wigglytuff and Greninja as playable characters - bumping up the total roster (so far) to 14 fighters.
