OVERALL THOUGHTS

Pokemon UNITE Battle Pass 5 Now Available - The Illuminerdi

Overall this new battle pass for Pokemon Unite is unique. It’s also not the first time the franchise had a western-style themed motif. An example of Pokemon using a western-themed motif was in Pokemon: Black and White with Ground-type Gym Leader Clay and other cowboy-inspired characters in the anime series. So the Pokemon series does have a history of a wild western-inspired theme. Hopefully, the new battle pass gets to expand the spirit of the Wild West in Pokemon Unite’s most recent battle pass.
