How to Play Bottom Lane

Basic Bottom Lane Strategy
10:00~9:40  • Hunt wild Pokemon while moving up.
 • Ignore the Lillipup in the Jungle Area.
9:40~8:50  • Take the Audino near the Jungle entrance.
 • Capture or steal all Wild Pokemon in the area.
8:50~7:20  • Take the Vespiquen and Combees in the center of the lane.
 • Pressure all opponent's HP while maintaining a close distance from your Goal Zone.
 • Continue farming to level up.
7:20~7:00  • Rally teammates near the Beach area for the Drednaw fight.
7:00~4:00  • Capture Drednaw and defeat all opponents (use your Unite move if necessary).
 • Prioritize destroying Goal Zones after the Drednaw fight.
4:00~2:00  • Accumulate EXP and level up your Pokemon.
 • Capture the second Drednaw when it respawns.
 • Reserve Unite Move for Zapdos when near the final stretch.
2:00~  • Take Zapdos objective if your team is behind in points. Otherwise, Zapdos is optional.

Pick Bottom Path Before the Battle

Before the start of the match, it is highly recommended that you pick the Bottom Path path using the Battle Prep. Though not required, this will surely help in relaying your intention, and prevent a lane from getting cluttered.

Capture All Wild Pokemon Spawns

9:40 8:50

It is important that your team captures the extra Audino near the entrance of the Jungle area, as well as the Vespiquen and Combees when they spawn. The extra EXP you get will be a huge avantage moving forward.

Since the opponent will surely be doing the same strategy, contesting these camps will always be a battle. Make sure to focus down on the Wild Pokemon and get the final hit.

Keep Goals in Check

While you farm wild Pokemon, be sure to keep an eye on your goal zones so you can quickly defend them when the enemy wants to sneak in points. You can do this by extending your view with the help of the camera mechanic.

Pressure the Opponent's HP

As you farm Wild Pokemon, you will always be having mini skirmishes with the enemy as you take control of the lane. Pressure their HP until it gets low enough for them retreat so you can continue farming.

Do not Overextend

Note that you will be at a major disadvantage when you are fighting opponents near their Goal Zone. Be sure to not overextend your position, and only pursue low HP opponents when you know you can deal the last hit. You might get caught on the enemy's lane flux which decreases your movement speed, leaving you vulnerable for a take down.

Defeat Drednaw for Experience Boost

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 nice bonus that gives you extra protection for your next fight.

Drednaw is a high priority target, so be sure to also keep close tabs on it as its location is farther away from your goal. Committing to it will take quite an effort and could leave your goal open.

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 with the Jungler whether you want to go for a gank, push a goal zone, or take Drednaw.

How to Play Jungler

Consume Yellow Berries

Although the allied Goal Zones can provide healing when you stand inside them, Yellow Berries can replenish a significant amount HP when you consume them, especially in the earlier stages of the game. This will allow you to get back in the fight without recalling!

You can even steal the opponent's Yellow Berries. Be careful though, you might get slowed by the enemy's Flux Zones if you overextend!

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 Remoat Stadium. It has 2 Goal Zones 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 - Venasaur.png
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 quickly farming Wild Pokemon and stealing Wild Pokemon from the opponents' side. And, most importantly, maintain a lane advantage to capture the Drednaw objective. This will be important as the Bottom Lane is wider than the top lane, so expect to get into a lot of fights while protecting your goal.
