's official Twitter account
has announced that the Psychic-type Eeveelution, Espeon
, will be joining the game's roster from May 16th, as a ranged attacker. Espeon is the second playable Eeveelution
in the free-to-start title, following the addition of Sylveon
to the roster last October
. As of writing, no official trailer has been released to showcase the new Pokémon and its moves, though we expect a character spotlight video should be released on the official Pokémon UNITE YouTube channel
prior to Espeon's Unite License being made available.
Pokémon UNITE's roster has expanded substantially since the game was release in July 2021, with the addition of Espeon bringing the total number of playable Pokémon
up to 35.
