List of Contents
Supporters are Pokemon that provide assistance to enhance their teammates' effectiveness throughout a game. They focus on controlling battles by inflicting status effects on enemies and healing allies.
The Supporter role is heavily centered around generating advantages and opportunities for their teammates to capitalize on. Like in other MOBAs, they offer their utility to allow their teammates to perform at their best while providing buffs and healing where necessary. Successful clashes are often determined on how effective the supporter can give their team an edge during lane fights and big pushes later in the game.
|Best Supporter Pokemon|
|Eldegoss||Eldegoss specializes in restoring its allies’ HP and boosting their movement speed.|
|Wigglytuff||Wigglytuff has tactical support moves that can remove debuffs and hinder enemy movement.|
Eldegoss has the best support moveset in the entire roster. Moves like Synthesis and Polen Puff are useful healing moves that can help with early skirmishes, as well as Cotton Guard for pure protection in late game clashes.
Wigglytuff is a versatile supporter for defensive and offensive plays. Using Sing to slow down enemies while strong, damage-based moves like Pound and Rollout can hinder enemies. Also, Wigglytuff's unite Starlight Recital can generate a huge advantage for team fights and can be unlocked early.
Top Lane supporters should utilize moves that hinder the opponent from scoring goals. It is good to help your lane partner zone out your opponents with debuffs for early lane dominance, especially for contesting Rotom.
Supporters can help reinforce teammates with buffs or recover lost HP in early clashes with the opposing team. It is important for Bottom Lane supporters to help their lane partner farm experience as fast possible to maintain level parity with the opponent.
What Supporters lack in dealing damage, they make up for by providing shields and inflicting status effects. Their moves range from healing allies and giving them buffs to inflicting opponents with stun, sleep, and decreasing their stats.
Supporters have low HP and can easily fall in battle when they get focused down. They mostly rely on moves that hinder enemy movement to get out of dangerous situations.
Thier normal attacks and scoring abilities are not the best compared to other roles. They do just enough in contributing to the overall offense of a team, but ultimately have a low impact in terms of dealing damage.
Supporters make plays by shielding their allies with helpful buffs while disrupting enemies during battles. It is important to preemptively bolster your teammates before a clash happens as most players use their moves as soon as they see a target. You should always know when to stay back or get close to a fight to increase your chances of surviving when things get out of hand.
Supporters function more effectively when paired with other teammates as most of their kit revolve around proving aid and support. Since Supporters generate a lot of extra advantages for the team, and can transition well later when they have strong enough abilities to buff and debuff accordingly, they are often high priority targets that are susceptible to being ganked.
