As part of the festivities, Pokemon Unite will be releasing its first-ever PvE mode, Boss Rush, for a limited period. A group of players may work together to take on the most powerful Pokemon, and the best teams will be rewarded for their efforts. Each session of Boss Rush will consist of the following:

In addition to the new battle pass, ranking season, and more, there will also be an Anniversary Cake challenge where players may collect frosting points to receive goodies, the primary ones being Tuxedo Style outfits for Cramorant and Crustle.
