Inteleon Jungle for Late Game Domination

Having Inteleon as the jungler allows the Pokemon to safely and quickly level up to level 7. Once at level 7, Inteleon can continue to farm and level up and be prepared for the late game.

Pokemon which have three evolution stages tend to take longer than others to reach their full potential. When three or more of these Pokemon are on a team, it can be difficult for the team to gain traction in the early game. Watch what Pokemon your teammates have picked and avoid stacking too many late bloomers on a team.

It's difficult to maintain a consistent source of damage when your team can only attack up close and personal. Try to make a team with at least one Pokemon who can deal reliable damage from a ranged distance.

It's best to have a good mix of Attack-type and Sp. Atk.-type Pokemon on your team since some Pokemon have different values for Sp. Def and Defense, making them vulnerable against certain Pokemon types.

・Hold the bottom lane with Alolan Ninetales as long as possible to have a good position when securing the Regi variant objective.

This is a high-offense line up with early and strong power spikes that can overwhelm opponents. It's centered on Inteleon taking the jungler role to reach level 7 as fast as possible in the hopes of carrying the game. Blissey will act as the hard-support for the team. Zacian will set the tempo of the game by knocking out opponents, securing objectives, and pushing lanes to create space for its allies to level up and reach their power spikes, particularly Inteleon. Inteleon will then be prepared to carry the team in the late game with its insane critical-hit damage.

Zacian and Blissey at the Top Lane

Blissey will accompany Zacian in the top lane. Zacian will utilize its strong stats to get early knockouts, reach level 5, and win the lane all with the help from Blissey.

Alolan Ninetales and Umbreon at the Bottom Lane

Mew and Umbreon will go to the bottom lane.Mew will apply pressure using its offensive moves to delay the opponent's progress as long as possible. Meanwhile, Umbreon will tank as much damage as it can while providing offense using Foul Play or Mean Look and Snarl.

For the Top Lane, Pokemon that are mobile and can equip stackable items can easily score goals and are great alternatives. They are fast enough to sneak pass defenders and score goals while having means of escaping quickly.

For the Bottom Lane, Pokemon with high Sp. Atk. damage output and/or early scaling like Alolan Ninetales paired with a Defender with strong crowd control moves like Lapras are ideal alternatives for the bottom lane duo.

How to Build a Team

In general, when putting together a team composition of your own, it's good to have the following team balance in mind.

  • One Tank
  • Two Damage Dealers
  • One Support
  • One Jungler


Pokemon UNITE - Defenders.png

The Tank will be the one that soaks up the damage. They should have high defense so that they can survive being attacked by enemies, and they should have skills that hinder or disable enemies, while not as much as the support, it would still be useful in team fights.

Another good thing they should have is the ability to initiate as they'll be the ones taking most of the skills when they initiate. This isn't a hard requirement but it's nice to have.

Defender Pokemon play this role well, but some All-Rounders can be built as tanks.

Damage Dealers

Pokemon UNITE - Damage Dealers.png

Damage dealers need to be able to deal a burst of damage, able to take out enemies quickly. They will be your primary source of stopping power, which is why you can have two of them.

They don't need to be tanky (although depending on the character, they could be), and they don't need a lot of stun because that's the support's job, so they should have primarily damage dealing skills.

In the laning phase, they'll be split up, one on top and one on the bottom, so the other two roles can each look out for them and help them achieve their kills.

Attackers fill this role nicely, but the role could reasonably be filled by All-Rounders or Speedsters.


Pokemon UNITE - Supporter.png

Support characters should have disabling skills, debuffs for the enemy, for buffs for the team to be effective.

Their job is to be with others and make sure they have the openings to take out Pokemon from the enemy team. Supporters are rarely useful on their own, and they should focus on disabling the damage dealers from the other team.

The best characters for this class are the Support Pokemon.


Pokemon UNITE - Jungler.png

The Jungler is a unique role that can make or break the game. They don't follow the lanes unlike the other four, rather they head into the central part of the map, which we'll call the Jungle.

They gain the most experience due to not having to share with another player, and because of their unique position, they can affect both lanes by ganking, which is the term for sneaking into a lane and attacking the enemy. This dictates the pace of the lane and determines when objectives can be taken. This is why having high movement speed can help so that you can travel between lanes and clear the jungle quickly.

They also manage to get buffs from defeating Ludicolo and Bouffalant from their respective sides of the jungle.

Speedsters make great junglers, more often than not. Some All-Rounders can be Junglers as well if they're mobile.
Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

What Makes A Good Team Comp?

An example of good team composition is well-balanced, meaning everyone's roles cover for each other's weaknesses.

Their skills must complement each other and make them more effective as a whole rather than acting as five individual units.
