Two weeks after The Pokémon Company released their take on the MOBA genre, Pokémon Unite, the game will be receiving its' first patch of sweeping balance changes. Set to go live on Tuesday, nearly every Pokémon on the roster is seeing their numbers altered in one form or another. A handful of bug fixes are coming alongside the patch as well.

 

Instead of providing specific figures that are being increased or decreased, The Pokémon Company opted to be vague with the extent of the changes and specific bugs being fixed.

 

Outside of making the game feel more balanced and responsive to play, a spectate feature is being tested from until the patch goes live until August 6.
