Why Should You Play Attacker?

The Attacker role is for players who want to deal massive damage to opponents without worrying too much on their defensive capabilities. MOBA players who are fond of micro-managing attacks and positions for high efficiency can feel right at home with this role. Moreover, it is generally straightforward to play and easy for anyone to pick up.

Pikachu is all about dealing massive amounts of damage while stunning them in the process. You can can use Electroweb to immobilize enemies and easily snipe them down when they are not careful. Plus, moves like Electroball and Thunderbolt are effective at dealing AoE damage to clustered opponents.


Cinderace's static ability, Blaze, allows it to consistently damage enemies with every attack. Add that to its other moves like Ember and Pyro Ball which inflicts burn status effect, damage can quickly add up if the enemy sticks around for too long.

List of All Status Effects


Cramorant has the highest endurance of all the attackers in the roster. This can help it stay in the fight longer along with its passive ability Gulp Missile that helps regenerate HP. Moves like Hurricane or Dive that displace enemies can be used strategically when defending or pushing a goal.

Attacker Best Lanes

Top Lane

Top Lane attackers should put pressure on the opponent's health to open goals for scoring. It is advised to pair up with a high Endurance Pokemon to have that extra protection while you open fire at your opponents.

Bottom Lane

Attackers will be helpful in warding off opponents from scoring goals while also providing offensive moves to score goals. Since the Bottom Lane has slightly more wild pokemon to defeat, attackers can help their lane partner to level up fast.

Attacker Role Strengths

Attacker Pokemon can take advantage of their ranged attacks and moves by defeating melee wild Pokemon before they can deal damage to them. They can also attack wild Pokemon behind walls, allowing them to maintain their position while farming.

Attacker Role Weaknesses

Low Endurance

While Attacker Pokemon are excellent at dealing heavy damage to opponents, it unfortunately can't take too much of it. Having low HP means they are easy to knock down, and are often easy targets to overpower with moves.

How to Play Attacker

Stay With Your Team

It is recommended to stay close to your teammates and avoid one on one fights as much as possible. Attackers are usually paired with a Defender or All-Rounder who will absorb the bulk of the damage while you reign down attacks from afar, complimenting each roles' strengths. Since experience is shared among teammates within range, having high offense means you can help your allies farm faster.

Avoid the Frontline

Attackers should keep their distance from a clash, but close enough to effectively bombard opponents with range attacks and moves. Since Attackers have low endurance and slow mobility, retreating from the frontline is dangerous as you can be easily picked off before you can reach a safe space.

Stay Within Goals

Staying inside a goal gives bonus shields and gradual healing. This makes Attacker Pokemon more formidable than they already are. Not only does this help defend goals, but also lets you deal massive damage and, eventually, knock down opponents who are within your attack range for too long.

Deal the Last Hit to Wild Pokemon

When you see your opponent fighting wild Pokemon, it is a good strategy to utilize your ranged attack to steal their points and experience by dealing the final hit. This does not only give you the experience, but also the Aeos Energy.
