This is a guide to the bottom lane of Aeos Island in Pokemon UNITE. Read on to learn more about the bottom lane, which Pokemon to use for the bottom lane, bottom lane strategies, and more!

Pokemon UNITE's Bottom Lane

What is the Bottom Lane?

The Bottom Lane in Pokemon Unite refers to the path located at the bottom part of the battle arena. Like the top lane, it has 2 goals present for both teams. It has a beach area at the bottom part and more space along the paths, making it relatively larger in size compared to the top lane.

Bottom Lane Objectives

Bottom lane players will constantly clash with the opposing team. While top lane players focus mostly on accumulating points and eventually scoring with Rotom, bottom lane players have to maintain pressure on their opponents by always keeping them in check and mitigating any point and level disparity. This will be important as the bottom lane is wider than the top lane, so expect doing mini skirmishes while having your goal protected.

How to Play Bottom Lane

Bottom Lane - Venasaur.png

It is recommended to have at least 2 Pokemon positioned at the bottom lane. Though you can practically use any Pokemon for the bottom lane, it is recommended to have at least 1 Supporter Pokemon to provide buffs or hindrances when needed.

Attacker or Speedster Pokemon

Pokemon who have ranged or fast attacks will be effective for pressuring your opponent's HP. Hit-and-run tactics will be key for stealing the last hit on the enemy's wild Pokemon..

All-Rounder or Defender Pokemon

Pokemon who have high endurance can easily camp at the goal and prevent your opponents from scoring entirely. All-rounders can use their extra strength to push back or even knock opponents down when they over extend to your goal.

Supporter Pokemon

The Supporter Pokemon will provide both heal and buffs in early clashes while being able to your teammate farm up to powerful moves for the late game. Alternatively, they can also help by hindering or inflicting status effects on opponents defensively or for knocking them down.

Bottom Lane Strategy

Defeat Drednaw for Experience Boost

Drednaw Boss Pokemon.png

Drednaw is stronger both in defense and dealing damage compared to Rotom at the top lane. It will be hard to defeat it at a low level, but the experience it gives makes it worth contesting in the early game. Moreover, the bonus shield is a huge advantage and could lead to a devastating push for whichever team has it.

Be sure keep close tabs on Drednaw as its location is farther away from your goal. Committing to it will take quite an effort and could leave your goal open.

Boss Pokemon Guide

Get Help from the Jungler

Having the Jungler in the lane generates a number advantage to help push or defend a goal when needed. This can also be used to help defeat Drednaw efficiently. It is important to communicate to the Jungler whether the bottom lane players will go for a push, or knock down opponents, as the number advantage can be mitigated by the opponent's Jungler.
