Nintendo has entered the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena scene with their newest release, Pokemon Unite. In it, there are two teams go head-to-head in an all-out brawl to be crowned the winner of the Unite Battle tournament.

Not only is it a real hoot to play, but apparently it’s also lots of fun to watch too – with Twitch’s viewership numbers in the hundreds of thousands and rising.

Pokemon Unite on Twitch

Just hours after release on Nintendo Switch on July 21, streaming viewership numbers skyrocketed with streamers like Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid playing the game for 30,000 watchers.

Charles ‘MoistCr1TiKaL‘ White and Sebastian ‘forsen’ Fors also joined in on all the fun, pulling in 25,000 viewers combined as they took to the arena and duked it out for the crown.


Over 200,000 Pokemon fans were watching the newest entry in the series be played live, making it the fourth most-viewed category on the platform as of right now. And it makes some wonder, does this have any type of esports potential? It’s got everything: the MOBA-style gameplay and it’s enjoyable to watch.
