|Defender||Great for protecting allies and hindering opponents.|

|Advanced Gameplay Tips Checklist|
Goal Zones Buff Allies
Use Grass to Hide From Enemies
Steal Aeos Energy from Enemies
Capture Boss Pokemon
A very good tip to know is that Goal Zones buff allies. When a player steps on one of their friendly Goal Zones, they will get a shield, a movement speed buff, and will heal slowly over time.
This mechanic can be used to heal and protect you and your teammates while you are out in a lane. When you realize that your team is losing a clash, you can pull the fight back to your Goal Zone to get buffed constantly while you are fighting the enemy team. Conversely, you also need to be careful in taking fights when the enemy is near their Goal Zones since they will be harder to fight.
Tall grass are placed at strategic areas of the map. Use them to sneak up on enemies, or hide in it when your are being chased down.
When ambushing enemies, go for targets that over extend their reach. This way, they will be too busy running away, allowing you deliver more strikes and eventually taking them down. Careful, an unsuccessful gank can make enemies more cautious.
Aeos Energy doesn't simply come from defeating wild pokemon. You can also see how much Aeos Energy an opposing pokemon is carrying by looking at the number beside their health bars. A good thing to note is that the player who gets the last hit from a wild pokemon will get the Aeos Energy.
If a player gets defeated, the Aeos Energy they are carrying will be dropped on the ground and any other players can freely pick up the dropped Aeos Energy.
