Pokémon Unite December 9, 2021 Update patch notes: Massive balance changes, New events, and more

Much needed balance updates!

On December 9, 2021, Pokémon Unite received a massive patch update, focusing primarily on Christmas and balancing the Pokémons along with numerous bug fixes. This update makes significant changes to the balancing of characters as well as certain Stadium related balance changes, in an attempt in making the game more balanced and fair for everyone.

After the Update is done on the devices, players can log in to receive the Unite license for Tsareena that we reported earlier. Complete details about the events, Holowears, etc are already given in the 2021 Holiday Festivities article.

Rank adjustemnts for Master league players

The Master rank rating has also been adjusted so that it increases more easily. The ranked match performance point system has been adjusted as well. Players can now prevent the loss of a trophy after losing a ranked match in exchange for a deduction of performance points if the amount of performance points is past the gauge’s white line.
