Pokémon Pokemon Unite update to bring buffs, nerfs, and spectate feature test

Pokemon Unite is getting its first major update tomorrow, and it’ll bring various buffs, nerfs, bug fixes, and a test release for the upcoming Spectate feature.

The update is planned for August 4 at 12:00 a.m. PDT and 7:00 UTC. In addition to bug fixes and text fixes, it will include a limited test release for the Spectate feature. The Pokemon Unite Spectate feature test will be performed from the launch of the patch and will be available until August 6 at 12:00 a.m. PDT and 7:00 UTC.

The changes for Pokémon focus on adjusting stats and battle balance. For instance, Gengar’s powerful Hex got a move downgrade, but its Shadow Ball damage saw an increase in damage and a move upgrade for the Dream Eater move.
