Pokémon Unite is embracing the MOBA genre head-on by showing off a variety of costume alts and in-game cosmetics. Thanks to the game’s Japanese site, we have a better look at the first round of costumes for Pikachu, Snorlax, Greninja, and more, as well as different clothing options for Trainers. Add on some screenshots released by The Pokémon Company and a press release, here’s what you can expect when Pokémon Unite launches on Nintendo Switch this July, followed by a mobile release in September.:

“In Pokémon UNITE, you can change the appearance of your Pokémon and Trainer. Take part in Unite Battles while showing off your own unique style! You can use Holowear, a special technology that uses Aeos energy, to dress your Pokémon in a variety of outfits. You can also customize your Trainer’s appearance, clothing, and accessories to make sure your Trainer always looks their best, both in and out of battle. You can update your profile with a Unite snapshot that features your Trainer’s avatar and partner Pokémon, and you can even customize the snapshot by changing your Trainer’s expression or pose or by adding stickers. Before entering a match, you and other players can see each other’s Unite snapshot, too!”
