Items are a big part of Pokémon UNITE but not all of them are available at the start of the game. Players will need to level up their trainer level and use the in-game shop to obtain all the possible items in Pokémon UNITE.
There are two types of items in Pokémon UNITE; held items and battle items. In a traditional massive online battle arena games, battle items are the spells players choose before loading into a game. In League of Legends, they are called “summoner spells” and provide map movement, self buffs and enemy debuffs or damage. Just as in LoL, battle items in Pokémon UNITE are rechargeable and activated in-game.
Held items, on the other hand, are more akin to runes. These are items that buff certain in-game statistics — like health regeneration or special attack. Players can unlock three different held item slots and customize which Pokémon gets which held item loadout. Held items can also receive upgrades through item enhancers. The enhancements go up to Level 20, as each upgrade costs more item enhancers. Players can earn item enhancements through leveling up their trainer, the Battle Pass, energy rewards or completing in-game missions.
