The Skyesports Streamers Showdown for Pokémon Unite will mark the beginning of a long-term commitment towards the game from us. Pokémon Unite has been able to gather a huge player base in India and we believe that with the right support, the game can be turned into a big esport title. We couldn’t be more excited to begin this journey with 8Bit Creatives.”
8Bit Creatives founder and CEO Animesh “Thug” Agarwal said, “For India to develop an extensive esports ecosystem, we must explore more games having a competitive scenario around the globe, and one of them is Pokémon Unite.
