This page is a guide about how the vision mechanic works in Pokemon UNITE. Read on to learn about what vision is, how it works, and how to take advantage of it.

The Vision Mechanic

The Vision Mechanic.png
Vision is a common game mechanic found in MOBA games. It refers to what players can and can't see on their screens. It provides significant information to players, which affects their decision-making throughout the game.

How Vision Works

The Range of View is Wider than the Screen

Range of View
Unlike most MOBAs, where players have limited range of view, in Pokemon UNITE the range of view is slightly wider than the screen if the camera is centered on the Pokemon. As a general reference, Venusaur's Unite Move is approximately the range of view.

Visible Pokemon are Displayed in the Minimap

All opponents that are visible to any teammate are displayed on their minimap via their icons. Watch the minimap consistently to keep track of the position of opponents.

Goals Give Vision

Goals Give Vision
Enemy Pokemon who approach allied goals become visible. Inversely, allied Pokemon who approach enemy goals become visible to the enemy team.

Range of View is Universal

How Vision Works
The range of vision is the same for all Pokemon. Having vision on an opponent means that opponent gains the same vision on the other player.

Grass Provides Concealment

Grass
Grass is everywhere on the map, such as the sides of the lane and the jungle. Grass provides concealment from the enemy. There is a lot of grass near the center of the map, so always be careful and avoid getting ambushed.

Walls Do Not Block Vision

Walls
Objects like trees, walls, and cliffs in most MOBAs blocks vision. In Pokemon UNITE, players can see over walls.

Certain Moves Affect Vision

Smokescreen
Pokemon like Garchomp and Greninja have moves that affect the target's vision.

Moves that Affect Vision
Move Description
SmokescreenSmokescreen Pokemon: Greninja
Creates a smokescreen and leaves the area, granting invisibility and bonus movement speed. When upgraded, increases attack when leaving the smoke.
Sand AttackSand Attack Pokemon: Garchomp
Hurls sand at enemy Pokemon, reducing their field of vision. Increases Garchomp's movement speed and attack speed when it hits.

Press the L Button to Move Camera Freely

During the match, players can move the camera freely and check off the screen with the L button. Players should use this when they want to check the situation outside the screen.

Taking Advantage of Vision

Use Grass for Surprise Attacks

Grass is the only object that affects vision in Pokemon UNITE. Knowing how to utilize them can be advantageous to the team. Use grass to do a surprise attack on the enemy.

Always enter from the upper tip of the L shaped grass. The enemy might have vision on the team when entering from the bottom.

Best Way to Enter the L Shaped Grass
1 Enter from the upper tip of the L shaped grass
2 Approach while staying within the grass
3 Get out from under the grass and ambush the enemy.

Always Refer to the Minimap

Players can always look at the mini map if they do not know what to do. Any information about the enemy movement leads to better decision-making.

General Rules When Reading Enemy Movement
1 Gank Solo Enemy.pngIf an enemy is alone, it is best to defeat them by outnumbering them.
2 DonIf no enemy is showing up in the minimap, be cautious and don't overextend.
3 Take Wild Pokemon.pngIf the enemy team is outnumbered, it is best to take goals or defeat wild Pokemon.
4 Help Allies.pngIf the enemy is chasing an ally, determine if that ally can still be saved.
5 Avoid Getting Ganked.pngIf an enemy from your lane is missing, communicate it to the team to avoid getting ambushed.
