Greedent is coming to Pokemon UNITE on October 20 as part of the Halloween Event Update!
As of October 18, 2021 and after careful deliberations, we have finished re-evaluating our tier list! Did your favorites gain positions?
Even after the nerf that reduced the damage of Mystical Fire and Hyper Voice, Sylveon is still on S-Tier. Though Mystical Fire doesn't deal as much damage as before, Hyper Voice still melts groups of enemies which gives Sylveon a primary damaging tool on top of its already great survivability. For those who have Sylveon, don't worry because it's still good!
Mamoswine has joined the Pokemon Roster as of September 29th! This Defender Pokemon has crazy good crowd control and tankiness to boot! We have put it in A Tier after multiple battles and tests.
↑ to S Tier
・Eldegoss' shields and movement speed buff is important in today's burst reliant meta.
↑ to S Tier
・Double Team clones hit hard and is auto-locked by enemies first before Greninja. A great juking and survival tool.
↑ to A Tier
・Steep learning curve but can easily burst Pokemon and steal objectives when played correctly.
・Hits hard but is a sitting duck when moves miss.
↓ to S Tier
・Can deal big damage using Shell Smash but at the same time puts itself in danger from burst damage.
↓ to S Tier
・Can be easily burst down by Speedsters while in lane. Strong if played right but not enough to justify SS anymore.
↓ to A Tier
・Has great CC but there are other better options like Mamoswine.
・Can still deal damage but out-classed by pure damage dealers like Greninja and Cinderace.
↓ to A Tier
・The nerf to its UNITE Move has hurt it immensely. It is not as great as it was before.
|10/06||・Stays in S-Tier even after the nerf.|
|Speedy, Tanky, and Powerful!|
|Lucario is an All-Rounder that can deal damage on the same level as attackers and can take damage at the same level as Defenders. To top it all off, he has higher mobility than a Speedster. Lucario is the definition of a high-tier pokemon.|
|Devastating Damage and Defense|
|Venusaur has been terrorizing the stadium with the HP-draining capability of Giga Drain and its CD reduction synergy with Petal Dance.|
|An Immovable Fortress that Outputs AoE Disables|
|Being able to shut down a lane at times with Block and Heavy Slam, Snorlax is a Pokemon that is welcome in the majority of teams.|
|Mr. Mime is a offensive support that focuses on inflicting damage and hindering the enemy team by, cutting off lane access or setting up traps while also being able to inflict stuns and knock-ups coupled with high Sp.Atk damage|
|An Actual Tank|
|High HP, High Damage, and decent fight control makes Blastoise a Pokemon with few counters and sits on the cusp of being broken.|
|A Mobile Turret|
|Sylveon has a perfect mix between offense and defense. It can continuously deal damage onto an enemy while at the same time keeping itself topped up using lifesteal and defensive abilities.|
|An indespensible buff and heal machine|
|Blissey can choose between healing and guarding. It can also non-stop apply damage buffs to a wide area that makes your allies deal more damage.|
|Shields and Heals Everywhere|
|If your team needs healing, Eldegoss is always the way to go. Its capable of shielding and healing allies while also providing useful utlity buffs. Its UNITE move also allows it to avoid focus fire and provide some source of DPS for your team!|
|Disables, Damage, and Tankiness.|
|Wigglytuff presents high amount of tankiness and disables which makes it difficult to play against. Proper playstyle adjustment is required if a Wigglytuff is on the enemy team.|
|Deletes Targets With Insane DPS and Burst Damage|
|Gengar is a Speedster that relies on applying debuffs then unleashing relentless damage upon its debuffed target.|
|Defense into Offense|
|Crustle is still the defensive or offensive powerhouse depending on the situation. Crustle with Shell Smash and coupled with X Scissor can turn defense into offense with a press of a button.|
|The Ideal Ranged Damage Dealer|
|Cinderace is the ideal attacker. It stays out of enemy range and non-stop throws fireballs at enemies. Beware of its fragility and it can fall rather quickly against enemies that can apply burst damage to its targets.|
|Unbridled Mobility and Damage|
|Zeraora is what the ideal jungler should be. Its capable of clearing camps with ease, it has great mobility, and its ganking power both early and late.|
|A Sneaky Assassin/Attacker Pokemon|
|Greninja is an attacker that has a playstyle similar to Speedsters. It can still be played with a standard ranged attacker build but it truly shines by being sneaky and assassinating enemy backlines.|
|High Control, High Damage|
|Pikachu is a powerhouse in the early and mid game due to damage output, and stuns. With the addition of the Choice Specs, Pikachu's damage output increased exponentially.|
|Crowd Control is the Middle Name|
|Mamoswine offers so many crowd control capabilities on top of his already tanky nature. This allows him to initiate and stay in fights while dishing out hindrances to mess up the enemy's synergy.|
|Tanky Bruiser With Ranged or Melee Playstyles|
|Charizard is a unique Pokemon that can attack while moving. It also has a safe, albeit weak, early game which is compensated by a strong late-game damage potential.|
|Long Distance Burst or Extreme Elusiveness|
|Talonflame can be played as a long distance burst Pokemon or a slippery burst Pokemon. No matter what playstyle you choose, it can deal high amounts of damage.|
|Waves of Fish and Damage|
|Cramorant's damage output has been nerfed in the recent patches. It can go melee as a burst attacker or play as a control ability caster from afar and its UNITE move can shutdown teams if used in an advantageous position.|
|Slows and Disables Followed By High Bursts|
|Alolan Ninetales can apply frost stacks from its abilities which can freeze enemies. Its also capable of switching between an auto attack based playstyle or a ranged CC playstyle.|
|Eternal Single-Target Disable|
|Slowbro is a Pokemon you choose if you want to play 4v4. It can completely shutdown a single player from the enemy team at the expense of being a sitting duck yourself.|
|Machamp excels at single target combat to Slowbro. However, as opposed to Slowbro, Machamp can easily take out a target alone. However, in the current meta of strong early game pokemon Machamp has become less of a threat.|
|The Critical Striker|
|Absol is the best Pokemon to use if enjoy seeing big damage numbers. However, Absol's high critical strike rate and damage is gated by its high skill cap for effecient and effective play especialy due to its low defensive stats.|
|A Late Game Beast|
|Garchomp is a strong Pokemon but it requires several levels be for its power spikes. It also requires stacks of its passive for max damage which may be difficult to pull off even at higher levels if it gets CC'd.|
|Team Fight Ender|
|Gardevoir is another Pokemon that relies on gaining many levels before being able to output its true damage. Its UNITE move Fairly Singularity summons a Black Hole that disables all pokemon hit and drags it towards the center which makes Gardevoir the ideal setter.|
|Power Level||Team Impact||Ease-of-Use||Rank Usage|
