Fortunately, getting Zeraora in Pokemon Unite is easy. All you need to do is follow these steps:

  2. Press X to access your trainer menu
  3. Go to ‘Mail’
  4. Go to the ‘Launch Bonus’ mail in ‘System Messages’
  5. Claim the Zeraora license gift

After following the above, you will be rewarded with the Zeraora license. This means that you will then be able to take the Electric-type Pokemon into battles, as your reward for playing the game near its launch.

When does the Zeraora free bonus end?

Zeraora will be available as a free bonus in Pokemon Unite from July 21 until August 31. After this date, players will no longer be able to obtain the Pokemon for free.

At that point, players may be able to purchase the character separately, with Unite allowing players to use real-world cash and in-game coins in order to make purchases and obtain new Pokemon licenses. However, this has not been confirmed.

Fortunately, there’s plenty of time to get Zeraora in Pokemon Unite for free, so if you want to check out the game and bag yourself a freebie, you download the game for free on the Nintendo eShop today.
