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

(Center)

It is important that your team captures the extra Indeedee near the entrance of the Jungle and around the center of the lane and the Altaria and Swablu when they spawn. The extra EXP you get will be a huge advantage 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 Goal Zone in Check

While you farm wild Pokemon, be sure to keep an eye on your goal zone 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.

Camera Guide

Pressure the Opponent's HP

As you farm Wild Pokemon, you will always be engaging in small fights with the enemy as you take control of the lane. Pressure their HP until it gets low enough for them to 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 with the last hit. You might get caught on the enemy's lane flux which decreases your movement speed, leaving you vulnerable to a knockdown.

Secure the Regi Variant for an Advantage

Taking Regice (or Regirock or Registeel) gives your entire team an advantage. It gives a lot of EXP. that will most likely lead to the team leveling up, which also means they get stronger. It also provides a buff that can help the team win teamfights and push lanes. Using these advantages help the team prepare for the final minutes of the game and secure a win.

Objectives Guide

Get Help from the Jungler

Having the Jungler help out in taking the objective makes it easier to secure it. It also gives a numbers advantage to help push or defend goal zones. With this, it's important to communicate with the Jungler whether you want to go for a gank, push a goal zone, or take the objective.

Pokemon UNITE's Bottom Lane

What is the Bottom Lane?

Pokemon UNITE - Lanes.png

The Bottom Lane in Pokemon UNITE refers to the path located at the bottom part of the Theia Sky Ruins or Remoat Stadium. It has two (2) Goal Zones present for both teams. It also has more space to manuveur around 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 Regieleki, 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 Regice (or Regirock or Registeel) 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.
