Zacian Jungle for Early Domination

Having Zacian as the jungler allows the Pokemon to safely and quickly level up to level 5. Once at level 5, Zacian can start to dictate the game's tempo using Sacred Sword.

Comfey as Hard Support

Although Comfey will start out at the top lane, once it has Floral Healing, it can commit to supporting Zacian until the end of the match. Comfey's support coupled with Zacian's damage makes a nearly-invincible duo.

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.

Avoid a Melee-Only 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.

・Get aggressive once you learn Wicked Blow or Surging Strikes.
・Hold the lane with Comfey until Regieleki spawns.
・Destroy the enemy goal before taking Regieleki if possible.
・Rotate to the bottom lane to secure the Regi variant there.
・Lock down key targets with Ebon Fist or beat them down using Flowing Fists to win teamfights.
Comfey ImageComfey Hard Support
・Provide constant healing to Urshifu with Synthesis in the early-game.
・Stick with Zacian once you learn Floral Healing.
・Prioritize Zacian then Urshifu when attaching to an ally.

・Rotate to lanes to apply or relieve pressure.
・Rotate to bottom lane when a Regi variant spawns and secure it.

・Secure as many wild Pokemon camps with Espeon in the early game using Water Gun.
・Get Scald for a low-cooldown offense and crowd control move and Amnesia to tank damage.
・Hold the bottom lane with Espeon as long as possible to have a good position when securing the Regi variant objective.
・Lock down key targets with Slowbeam.

This is an offensive line up that will be effective throughout the game but still has room to get stronger as the game progresses. It's centered on Zacian taking the jungler role to reach level 5 safely and quickly to learn Sacred Sword and Comfey providing constant support to the Pokemon. 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.

Urshifu and Comfey at the Top Lane

Comfey will accompany Urshifu in the top lane, helping it apply pressure by providing constant healing. Both will try to hold the lane as long as possible to have a better position when taking Regieleki. Once Comfey learns Floral Healing, it can commit to supporting Zacian until the match ends.

Zacian Jungle

Zacian will take the jungle to reach level 5 quickly and safely and learn Sacred Sword. Once at level 5, Zacian can start to set the tempo of the game by rotating to lanes and secure knockouts and allow its allies to score. Zacian will keep hunting targets with the help of Comfey to give its allies space to farm and prepare for the late game while also crippling the enemy team.

Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

Espeon and Slowbro at the Bottom Lane

Espeon and Slowbro will go to the bottom lane. Espeon will apply early pressure once it learns Psyshock to delay the opponent's progress as long as possible. Meanwhile, Slowbro will tank as much damage as it can with the help of Amnesia while providing offense using Scald and Slowbeam.

For the Top Lane, brawlers that can take the frontlines like Tsareena can pair well with Comfey. They can charge enemies with confidence while Comfey provides them with offensive and defensive support.

For the Bottom Lane, Pokemon with high Sp. Atk. damage output and/or early scaling like Glaceon paired with a Defender with strong crowd control moves like Mamoswine 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.

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.
