Pokémon Unite follows in the footsteps of numerous other mobile-focused F2P games. You get rewards not only for completing matches, but simply by logging into the game frequently as well. One of those rewards is a free Zeraora License which unlocks the character for play.
The freebie was originally only for a very limited time after the game's launch, but there's a new way to get your hands on the speedy mythical Pokémon. Here's how to get Zeraora in Pokémon Unite for free.
Zeraora is one of the best Pokémon in Pokémon Unite right now. As a Speedster, it has no trouble zipping around the Pokémon Unite maps and scoring points while the enemy team struggles to keep up. You can read about how to build and counter it in our comprehensive Zeraora build guide to get you off on the right foot.
How to Get Zeraora for Free in Pokemon Unite
If you missed the early access period for Zeraora, fear not. TiMi has introduced a new way to get your hands on the Zeraora Unite License - and yes, it's still free.
On Switch, head to the Events tab to find the Zeraora Mission. If you're on mobile, click on your trainer's face and navigate to the same place.
You'll be able to see that to get Zeraora's Unite License, you'll simply need to win 32 battles. As an added bonus, you get 100 Aeos Tickets for winning two battles, 450 Aeos Coins for winning eight battles, and 50 Item Enchancers for winning 16 battles.
Anyone who currently owns Zeraora will be granted 1,000 Aeos Tickets instead when they complete the mission.
Early Access Zeraora
To get Zeraora in Pokemon Unite, all you actually had to do is log in before August 31. Meet that simple requirement and you'll unlock the Thunderclap Pokémon to use in all your future battles. But you'll have to work your way through a couple of menus to actually add it to your roster.
Once you're on the main menu after playing the tutorial match, you'll find your free Pokémon Unite Zeraora license in your in-game mail, which you can access by hitting X on the main menu and going down to the Mail menu. Look for the 'Launch Bonus' letter in the System Messages tab and you'll unlock Zeroara for free.
If you missed your opportunity to get a free Zeraora by not playing Pokémon Unite before August 31, then follow the instructions above instead.
