Two months after it launched on Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Unite has arrived on mobile devices. The free-to-play Pokemon spinoff game is now available to download on Google Play and the Apple App Store, and players can even share their progress between the Switch and mobile versions. Here's a rundown on how to share your Pokemon Unite save data across the two versions.

How to share Pokemon Unite save data across Switch and mobile

Your Pokemon Unite progress is tied to the Nintendo account or Pokemon Trainer Club account you link when you begin the game. To share your data between the Switch and mobile versions, you must log in with that same linked account when you first start the game on a new device.

Keep in mind that you must log in with your existing account the first time you start the game if you hope to carry over your progress. If you begin playing on a new device without linking, new data will be created, which means you'll no longer be able to link your existing progress.

Pokemon Unite is free to download and play, with optional in-game purchases. Unlike most other multiplayer Nintendo Switch games, a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is not required to play Pokemon Unite online. The mobile and Switch versions of the game are the same in terms of gameplay and content.

To coincide with the mobile launch of Pokemon Unite, the Pokemon Company has rolled out a big update that introduces a variety of new content and features to the game, including its second battle pass, new held items and a spectator mode that allows you to watch other players' matches. The Pokemon Company will also distribute 2,000 Aeos Tickets to all players beginning Sept. 29 to celebrate surpassing 9 million downloads on Switch.
