Espeon was previously identified as the next playable Pokemon coming to Pokemon UNITE, but some players were confused when initial datamines revealed that the psychic-type would appear to be added to the game with only one option to get itusing premium in-game currency.
Espeon''s Unite License was listed as costing 575 Aeos Gems to purchase at the in-game shop, which means players would need to spend real money to purchase Gems. However, the lack of Aeos Coin purchase option has been explained as TiMi Studio confirmed that a new set of special missions will give players the opportunity to unlock Espeon for free.
On May 16th, a special set of event missions will be added to Pokemon UNITE, which allows players to get Espeon for free. The Pokebuki style Holowear for Espeon will also be available at https://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT pic.twitter.com/ZHu7iJuTkG
Espeon will be available alongside a new event and corresponding missions from Espeon''s launch on May 16 to June 13, but players may receive a set of rewards and unlock Espeon without having to use Aeos Coins or Gems.
If you have the Aeos Coins available when Espeon is added to the game, you may get the new Unite License immediately, and completion of the missions will instead reimburse you the same amount when you finish the transactions. This will only apply to Aeos Coins and not the games premium currency, therefore if you use Gems to purchase Espeon, you will still receive the equivalent price in Coins when you finish the game.
At the start of the program, a special Holowear for Espeon will be available, which was also detailed in previous datamines.
