How to Play All-Rounder

Take to the Frontlines when Pushing

Pokemon UNITE - All-Rounder Fighting in the Frontline

All-Rounders possess good offensive and defensive capabilities, which allow them to take on a more aggressive playstyle. Just like Defender types, you'll always want to take the lead by jumping into the fray and having your teammates follow behind you when a teamfight starts. Your good damage output and endurance make you a good wall for your squishier teammates.

Avoid 1v1 Fights Against Ranged Pokemon

While All-Rounders can take a beating, they'll have a difficult time fighting Pokemon that are out of their reach. Attackers can take advantage of their range attacks and moves to whittle down All-Rounders before they get too close. It's highly advised to avoid taking engagements against ranged Pokemon, especially in the early game, and even more so if you don't have a teammate to assist you.

Adapt to Any Situation

All-Rounders should be able to fill in for a role when the situation demands it. If you feel your team is lacking damage, take up a more offense-oriented approach. If your team is getting wiped out too quickly, switch your playstyle and moveset into something more defensive. Keep tabs on your team's condition and adjust your playstyle accordingly.

Attack the Backlines First in Teamfights

Pokemon UNITE - All-Rounder Targeting the Backline

All-Rounders are effecient in diving Pokemon in the backlines and bursting them down. Aim for squishy Attackers or Supporters first since they are most likely positioned behind the rest of their team. Taking out the enemy's damage dealers or supports first is key to winning teamfights and securing objectives.

Lucario ImageLucario S Rank Icon Any
Lucario excels at controlling the battlefield by delivering quick blows on all sides. Moves such as Power-Up Punch and Extreme Speed will make Lucario harder to target as it charges to deal damage in quick succession. Gaining access to his Aura Cannon Unite move lets him blasts opponents in its path and finish off fleeing enemies.

Charizard has a great arsenal of hard-hitting moves like Fire Punch which can displace opponents out of position. Pair that with a Fireblast and it can continuously dish out a lot of damage in the lanes.

All-Rounder Best Lanes

Any Lane

True to their nature, All-Rounders can practically pursue any lane they want. However, it is advised to only take a lane for the purpose of filling in for a role that is absent.

Top Lane

Most All-Rounder moves early on are focused on dealing damage. You can use them to help your teammates farm while also taking the bulk of the damage when a defender is not around. Partnering with an Attacker is good if you want to make offensive plays and can also make fighting Rotom much easier.

Top Lane Guide

Bottom Lane

Because their endurance is high enough, All-Rounders can help with tank duties like defend goals and guarding allies when contesting Drednaw. They can also protect Supporters while helping them defeat wild Pokemon when an Attacker is absent.

Jungle Area

Though not as efficient as actual Speedsters, they can farm the jungle just as good and can stay in the fight much longer because of their high endurance. Moreover, having sole access to wild Pokemon in the jungle can net All-Rounders a lot of experience which can grant faster access to powerful moves in the late game.

All-Rounder Pokemon Strengths


Pokemon UNITE - All-Rounder Pushing Oppenents from Wild Pokemon
All-Rounders are highly flexible and can take on different kinds of roles when the situation demands it. They can function as primary damage dealers, tanks, supports, or even some combination of the three depending on what moveset you choose for the Pokemon.

All-Rounder Pokemon Weaknesses

No Specific Strengths

The downside of being able to take on different or multiple roles is that All-Rounders won't excel at any specific role in an impactful manner.

Somewhat Steep Learning Curve

Having to support your team in various ways means you have to know what specific moves in your kit are helpful in certain situations. It is key to know what moves can help dish out damage, keep you alive, or offer support for your teammates.

Why Should You Play All-Rounder?

The All-Rounder role is for players who excel at a more adaptive or flexible playstyle. Instead of focusing on a single role, they aim to offer support by being able to transition between roles - albeit with a reduced capacity - as the game goes on. Generally, All-Rounders are good dealing at damage and providing some sort of crowd control.
