Espeon S-Tier!

Pokemon UNITE - Espeon Article Banner

After thorough testing, Espeon enters in S-Tier! With its hard-hitting kit that can also inflict stuns and slows, Espeon is a great Attacker to add to your roster. Additionally, its impressive level scaling and ability to disrupt multiple opponents with Psychic Solare makes the Pokemon a great contender for competitive play. Lastly, its moves are straightforward enough to help keep the gameplay loop relatively easy but effective. If you can, try getting it free from the Espeon Event!

Tier List Updates (May 19)

New Pokemon Tier Placements

Update Date Pokemon Summary
05/19 Espeon ImageEspeon Enters in S Tier
・Espeon is a great Attacker that can inflict status effects on top of its already high damage output. Its great level scaling means that you will be able to get on top of the curve over your opponents. However, it lacks proper mobility moves that can help it reposition in fights. Overall, Espeon is a must-get for anyone who likes to snipe down targets with high Sp. Attack damage in the UNITE arena.

Tier List Re-Evaluation (Version 1.5.1.5)

Update Date Pokemon Summary
05/19 Greninja ImageGreninja
Up Arrow to SS Tier

・Greninja has proven to be an essential Attacker that can carry games with absurd amounts of damage and effective securing capabilities. Using the Pokemon to its full potential allows you to dominate lanes with burst moves, especially when taking the jungler role. With its rise in usage in tournaments, Greninja is a solid pick for any team composition to have.
05/19 Venusaur ImageVenusaur
Down Arrow to S Tier

・With other Pokemon receiving a variety of reworks and tweaks, Venusaur's viability has fallen as Pokemon can now fight back that had a hard time fighting Venusaur can now go toe-to-toe with it. Moreover, although its versatile kit is still its strong feature, new strategies in the meta put Venusaur at the sidelines for now, even with its flexible kit.
05/19 Dragonite ImageDragonite
Down Arrow to A Tier

・Dragonite has seen a drop in usage because of the nerf to Buddy Barrier and Score Shield. Most of the Pokemon's strategies have taken a significant hit as it has been reduced to a straightforward brawler. Although Hyper Beam is still one of the best secure moves in the game, Dragonite is not enough to keep up with other All-Rounders that can provide more flexibility in a team composition.
05/19 Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime
Down Arrow to A Tier

・Although it can deal high amounts of damage with its combos, Mr. Mime's lackluster support moves, especially when compared to the likes of Hoopa and Blissey, makes the Pokemon an awkward pick. The Pokemon's offensive capabilities are now outshined by All-Rounders that can provide consistent aggression. Additionally, it does not help that Mr. Mime's moves take too long to become strong, making it hard to carry during the first half of the game.
05/19 Azumarill ImageAzumarill
Down Arrow to B Tier

・Azumarill's distinct playstyle has not taken the Pokemon to great lengths in terms of usability. Being dependent on Huge Power hurts its overall effectiveness in a meta where team fights are abundant and often dictate the outcome of a match. With other All-Rounders in the roster outshining it, Azumarill needs a rework for it to become viable competitivley.
05/17 Blissey ImageBlissey Up Arrow to S Tier
・Blissey's simple tweaks in the 1.5.1.2 Update was enough to improve its support capabilities. Its combination of healing, shielding, buffing, and debuffing makes it a perfect support.
05/17 Crustle ImageCrustle
Down Arrow to B Tier

・The nerf to both Score Shield and Buddy Barrier inadvertently reduced Crustle's viability in competitive play. Its strategies and playstyle took a major hit, reducing Crustle into an offense-focused Defender with limited flexibility.
05/17 Eldegoss ImageEldegoss
Down Arrow to A Tier

・Eldegoss has seen a massive drop in usage due to its kit paling in comparison to Hoopa and Blissey, both of which have become meta staples. With the prevalence of burst strategies and durable newcomers like Blastoise and Trevenant, Eldegoss's kit is not powerful enough to keep up with the trend. Adding to this, the number of nerfs it received up to this point did not help the Pokemon one bit.
05/17 Gengar ImageGengar
Up Arrow to A Tier

・Though it has seen multiple reworks to both its moves and even its stats, Gengar has not stuck the landing as Speedsters have not been impactful in the meta. However, there is no denying that Gengar's kit is flexible - and powerful - enough to handle any Pokemon you throw at it. And, with the nerf to both Score Shield and Buddy Barrier lowering the survivability of each Pokemon, Gengar's Sp. Attack prowess is now hard to ignore. Because of this, Gengar moves up to A Tier!
05/17 Trevenant ImageTrevenant Up Arrow to A Tier
・The buffs Trevenant received in the 1.5.1.2 Update improved its viability and effectiveness in the game, giving it a chance to shine and gaining increased usage since the update. Furthermore, it made its debut in professional games, proving that it's a strong pick.

Tier List Explanation

SS Tier

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Greninja ImageGreninja S Rank Icon Jungle
An Illusive Assassin
Greninja is an effecient Attacker that has a speedster-like playstyle with its arsenal of highly mobile dash moves and insane burst potential. It is illusive, versatile, and hits hard, making it an effective assassin. However, its fragility requires a lot of effort in the early game to reach its potential.
Hoopa ImageHoopa S Rank Icon Top / Bot
Unbound Power
Hoopa boasts a great kit that can greatly alter the playing field for its teammates. Its utility is top notch and opens up more strategic plays that can push the meta forward. Hoopa also boosts your team's offensive capabilities a great deal especially with taking objectives and controlling both lanes at the same time through the use of its warping mechanic.
Lucario ImageLucario S Rank Icon Top
Speedy, Tanky, and Powerful!
Lucario is the ultimate 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, it is capable of keeping with Speedsters in the mobility department. Lucario is the definition of a high-tier pokemon.
Pikachu ImagePikachu S Rank Icon Top/Bot
High Control, High Damage
Pikachu is a powerhouse in all stages of the game due to its high damage output and stun capabilities. It's Unite Move's fast charge rate means that Pikachu can consistently get a surge in power whenever it needs to.
Tsareena ImageTsareena S Rank Icon Jungle
The Queen is Back!
Tsareena's high sustain and survivability via Trop Kick and Stomp makes it incredibly hard to fight against. It also deals significant area damage repeatedly thanks to the effects of Queenly Majesty, which can be easily spammed for consistent pressure. Moreover, its Queen Ascendant is one of the best single target disables in the game, locking targets down while dealing heavy damage.

S Tier

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Aegislash ImageAegislash S Rank Icon Jungle
A Technical Sword to Wield
Aegislash is a great duelist Pokemon that can adapt to any combat encounter. It has the ability to alter its boosted attacks to deal massive damage or sustain itself with heals, which makes it viable for any lane it goes to. However, it could be a hard Pokemon to use because it relies on the formes mechanic to generate an advantage. That said, If you manage to master Aegislash's sword and shield playstyle, it is a force to be reckoned with.
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales S Rank Icon Top
Good Mix of Support and Damage
Alolan Ninetales is a versitile Pokemon that has a good mix of support and damage. Its Aurora Veil allows it to deal decent damage via attacks and provide some support for its allies at the same time, having also a bit of mobility as a bonus. Its other moves and Unite Move can deal high burst damage while freezing enemies in place, especially when used together in quick succession. However, its power tends to stagnate in the late-game, making it hard for Alolan to keep up and deal its intended damage.
Blastoise ImageBlastoise S Rank Icon Top/Jungle
A Durable, Ranged Defender
Blastoise offers damage and crowd control while tanking damage. Compared to other Defenders, Blastoise has the advantage of being a ranged Pokemon. It can deal massive damage using the Rapid Spin and Water Spout combo, or displace enemies with Surf and Hydro Pump. But it's most notable for throwing enemies in a huge area into the air using Hydro Typhoon, making it great at teamfights. However, its drawback is its slow scaling, reaching its power spike only starting at level 9.
Blissey ImageBlissey S Rank Icon Bot
The Perfect Support
Blissey offers reliable healing, shielding, buffing and debuffing while boasting the highest HP in the roster. It has replaced Eldegoss as the most reliable healer in the game. It's a great counter against burst damage Pokemon, making it a great pick in the current meta. However, its effectiveness heavily relies on always being at the side of another Pokemon, it can't function well alone.
Cinderace ImageCinderace S Rank Icon Top/Jungle
The Ideal Ranged Damage Dealer
Cinderace is the ideal late-game carry Pokemon thanks to its rapid attack speed and critical-hits. It can also take out objectives like Drednaw or Zapdos quickly by itself. However, it's fragile and requires a lot of time before it can start carrying its team, which is something that the enemy can take advantage.
Espeon ImageEspeon S Rank Icon Bot
Reliable Burst Damage
Espeon's kit provides anyone who uses it with a reliable mix of burst damage and tenacity, thanks to its unique passive Magic Bounce that allows Espeon to negate a hit that will otherwise cause hindrances. It is also fairly easy and straight forward to use so anyone can pick it up! It lacks some mobility options though which can sometimes spell its doom especially against Speedsters.
Gardevoir ImageGardevoir S Rank Icon Top
Burst Damage Supreme
Gardevoir can deal high burst damage and provide disables with from a long range. It has argubly the best crowd control Unite Move in the game, making it extremely deadly in teamfights. Moreover, its ability to refresh its moves instantly when they hit eliminates the need to wait for cooldowns, allowing it to provide constant area damage. Its only drawback is its fragility and lack of mobility, something that more mobile Pokemon can exploit.
Greedent ImageGreedent S Rank Icon Jungle
The Trickiest of Defenders
Greedent is a specialist at creating chaos on the map by dragging the enemy team's attention to itself in the hopes of bringing it down. It is an extremely slippery and tough Pokemon to fight against thanks to Covet and its ability to constantly recover HP via its Berries. It can also deal decent burst damage using Belch, or slow targets with Bullet Seed, increasing their effeciency when Berry Belly Flop is used. However, its complex mechanics demands special skill and understanding from players, which may not be suitable for everybody.
Machamp ImageMachamp S Rank Icon Jungle
Submission!
Machamp's buffs and immunities allow it to rampage through the battlefield without the fear of getting disabled. Its high-offense moves make it a scary Pokemon to go against, especially in a 1v1 duel. However, it requires a near-perfect early game to dominate the game, otherwise, it'll just be a meaty target.
Snorlax ImageSnorlax S Rank Icon Top
The Collosal Bear
Snorlax is an extremely durable Pokemon thanks to its high defenses and massive HP. It's effective from beginning to end since it does not need to evolve. It can act as a traditional tank, soaking damage for its team, and providing crowd control using Heavy Slam, and Block or Yawn. It can also become an unorthodox damage dealer using Flail. Unfortunately, it lacks anything unique to offer that other Defenders have and can do better.
Venusaur ImageVenusaur S Rank Icon Top
Devastating Damage and Defense
Venusaur is still terrorizing the stadium with the HP-draining capability of Giga Drain and its cooldown reduction synergy with Petal Dance. What's more, it can be an effective sniper with the use of Solar Beam. Whether, you are facing enemies head on or from long range, Venusaur is a great Attacker for any team to have.

A Tier

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Absol ImageAbsol A Rank Icon Jungle
The Executioner
Absol is the best Pokemon to use if you enjoy seeing big damage numbers. With the right build and good aim, Absol can decimate its opponents within seconds, thanks to its high critical hit rate. Additionally, its wide variety of dash moves like Midnight Slash makes it an elusive Pokemon to deal with. Although its early to mid-game capabilities are impressive, it struggles to be as effective during the late game when opponents are strong enough to fight back against Absol. Nonetheless, Absol is still a dependable sing-target assassin for any team to have!
Charizard ImageCharizard A Rank Icon Bot
The Ultimate Fighter
Charizard is a powerful bruiser thanks to its arsenal of moves that allow it to shift its playstyle to counter the enemy team. It has a unique mechanic where you can attack or use moves while moving, allowing you to reposition Charizard when engaging in a brawl. What holds it back is the weak early game that necessitates it to reach higher levels before it can pop off. Moreover, it is susceptible to being disabled outside of its unite move. Still, Charizard can dominate games if you managed to hit the right beats and get powerful as the game goes on.
Decidueye ImageDecidueye A Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Astonishingly Dangerous
Decidueye is an offensive powerhouse that can easily carry the game when left uncontested. It is capable of taking objectives head-on with its flurry of boosted attacks that can constantly crit. Moreover, it can pick off its targets from afar with a hard-hitting Spirit Shackle. Unfortunately, Decidueye lacks any proper mobility moves that can help it get out of dangerous situations cornered, especially against Pokemon that can teleport, dash, or even jump away from danger.
Dragonite ImageDragonite A Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Eternal Outrage
Dragonite is currently the only ranged All-Rounder in the game, giving it some advantage. It can either offer high burst damage via Hyper Beam, or become a traditional melee All-Rounder with Outrage. It's best known for its semi-global presence thanks to its Unite Move, Draco Impact, allowing it to traverse the map quickly to help in teamfights or score goals. Unfortunately, it's held back by its scaling since it can only have access to its main damage move at level 8.
Duraludon ImageDuraludon A Rank Icon Bot
Massive Offense
Duraludon offers high burst damage as well as decent utility. Its standard attacks also hit hard, allowing it to become a traditional attack damage carry for its team, especially when given a level advantage. Its passive, Heavy Metal, prevents it from being thrown or shoved once, which is something that other Attackers don't have. However, like most Attackers, it's extremely fragile and lacks mobility, making it an easy target for Pokemon that can dive it directly.
Eldegoss ImageEldegoss A Rank Icon Bot
Shields and Heals Everywhere
Eldegoss' kit provides support and offense at the same time. It's capable of healing and shielding its allies while empowering them with buffs. It's the go-to pick for any team that wants a solid support Pokemon. However, it's only valuable when there are allies to accompany it, otherwise, it can't do much by itself.
Gengar ImageGengar A Rank Icon Jungle
Your Worst Nightmare
Gengar's ability to silently strike unsuspecting enemies makes it a great assassin that can sustain itself with heals as it moves hit. It relies on applying debuffs then unleashing relentless damage upon its target in mere seconds with its Sludge Bomb to Hex combo. However, its effectiveness falls drastically during the late game where team fights are abundant. Gengar will have a hard time maneuvering around the chaos as it looks for targets to pick off.
Mamoswine ImageMamoswine A Rank Icon Top/Bot
Crowd Control for Days
Mamoswine is the ultimate disabler Pokemon. With so many crowd control moves, it can stomp its way through defenses and open up opportunities for its team to push. Additionally, its sturdy nature allows it to initiate and stay in fights much longer. However, while it can dish out hindrances, you will have to be able to land them to get the most out of it. This means being able to time High Horsepower attacks at the right time as missing with your moves can lead to bad plays.
Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime A Rank Icon Bot
Good Balance of Offense and Defense
Mr. Mime is a offensive support that focuses hindering the enemy team by cutting off lane access or setting up traps. It is capable of dealing massive damage with Confusion and inflict stuns and knock-ups coupled with high Sp.Atk damage. However, in the current meta, it's no longer as viable as it used to be since many Pokemon can do what Mr. Mime does much better.
Slowbro ImageSlowbro A Rank Icon Top
Eternal Single-Target Disable
Slowbro's ability to remove opponents from the fight with Telekinesis and high durability make it a great Defender to have during battle. Its tackiness, coupled with crowd control moves, allows it to disrupt enemy synergies while being able to shrug off damage using Amnesia. In terms of offense, however, Slowbro lacks a proper way to fight back and deal damage.
Sylveon ImageSylveon A Rank Icon Top/Bot
A Mobile Turret
Sylveon has a perfect mix of offensive and defensive moves that incentivize aggressive plays. It can enhance its moves with Calm Mind and continuously deal damage to an enemy. Additionally, Sylveon can sustain itself by recovering HP from multiple Draining Kiss hits. However, its damaging moves need to be properly set up to reach its full potential. This drawback pulls it back from being a hard-hitting Attacker.
Talonflame ImageTalonflame A Rank Icon Jungle
Long Distance Burst or Extreme Elusiveness
Talonflame is highly mobile Pokemon that can deal high burst damage. It specializes at diving targets head-on from a long range, then knocking it down quickly before they can react. It's notorious for sniping boss Pokemon like Zapdos out of nowhere and stealing it from the enemy. It can also use its mobility moves to traverse the map to score goals when the enemies are not looking. But its gameplay is also its weakness since it's fragile and dives recklessly into fights, making it an easy target to knock out, especially when it misses its moves.
Trevenant ImageTrevenant A Rank Icon Top/Bot
The Undying Tree
Trevenant is a highly durable Pokemon that provides decent crowd control. Its ability to recover HP and deal damage at the same time makes it a a great frontliner, providing cover to its squishy allies. However, since its moves also deal damage to itself, it can easily be exploited by the enemy.
Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff A Rank Icon Bot
Disables, Damage, and Tankiness.
Wigglytuff is a great combination of durability, utility, and support thanks to its moves. It has the best defensive teamfight ability in the game, Starlight Recital. It can also deal decent damage thanks to Rollout and Double Slap. Its drawback, however, is its long cooldown Unite Move, limiting its usage to key moments throughout the game.

B Tier

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Azumarill ImageAzumarill B Rank Icon Jungle
Critical Machine
Azumarill's one-on-one prowess is unmatched thanks to its ability to deal constant critical srikes with Huge Power. This enables Azumarill to scale fast in the early game, especially when it starts in the Jungle. However, its unique mechanic that makes it powerful also hinders Azumarill from dealing maximum damage in the late game where team fights are a constant event. This contradiction prevents it from taking top spots in our Tier List.
Crustle ImageCrustle B Rank Icon Top
A Walking Fortress
Crustle is a versatile Defender that can trade its defense for more attack power. Its ability to disrupt lanes with Rock Tomb or plow through the enemy with Shell Smash allows it to adapt to situations that demands a change in playstyle. Unfortunately, its flexibility means that it is not as effective as damage dealer or a tank.
Garchomp ImageGarchomp B Rank Icon Jungle
Attack Heavyweight
Garchomp is a great offensive All-Rounder that can dish out insane damage when it gets to keep attacking. Moves like Dragon Claw and Stomp are great initiating moves that can pressure you targets. Its ability to power its way through brawls and objectives with its hard-hitting boosted attacks. While it is capable of dealing insane amounts of damage, its low defenses and lack of proper ways to fight back during the early game make it susceptible to getting bullied, which can stifle its growth towards higher levels.
Zeraora ImageZeraora B Rank Icon Jungle
Slashes Out of Nowhere
Zeraora's arsenal of highly mobile moves makes it a tough Pokemon to fight. This makes it a great Speedster for ganking opponents. However, its all or nothing moveset means that missing targets will spell doom most of the time. Moreover, its moves take too long to learn and upgrade, making the early to mid-game challenging.

C Tier

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cramorant ImageCramorant C Rank Icon Top / Bot
A Bird of the Seas
On top of being a fragile Pokemon, Cramorant's damage is not up to par and lacks the ability to carry its team in the late-game compared to other Attackers, reducing its viability as a pick. Its Unite Move, Gatling Gulp Missile, used to be extremely effective in teamfights but is now easily countered by a lot of Pokemon in the current meta. It requires significant buffs in the future for it to make a comeback.

Tier List Criteria

Full Criteria

Criteria
Power Level Team Impact Ease-of-Use Rank Usage

Each of these factors determine the Pokemon's place within the tier list. Read on to learn what they refer to exactly:

  • Power Level: Determines how strong a Pokemon is in theory (when its potential is realized; optimized itemization and playstyle).
  • Team Impact: Determines how instrumental a Pokemon is from a team's perspective. What does the Pokemon bring to the table and how effective is this to achieve victory?
  • Ease-Of-Use: When two things perform at roughly the same power level, the one that's easier to use is always better. We always have to consider the amount of effort it takes to play certain Pokemon into account.
  • Rank Usage: We kept a close eye on a Pokemon's performance in high rank matches to get a better glimpse at its overall potential in certain high-level match ups and scenarios.
