This is a guide on how to increase your Pokemon's movement speed during matches in Pokemon Unite. Read on to learn how to increase movement speed, what movement speed is, and more!
|How to Increase Movement Speed|
Equip Held Items
Stay Within Allied Lanes
Use Specific Moves
Use X Speed
Consume Green Berries
Attack + 24
Movement Speed + 120
Increases movement speed by (10/15/20)% when the Pokemon is not in combat.
Equipping the Float Stone helps you quickly transition from in and out of combat and chase low HP opponents when they are retreating. This is also useful for efficiently traversing wide open areas while roaming.
HP + 240
Movement Speed + 150
While the Pokemon has the fewest Exp. Points on the team, it gains (2/3/4) Exp. Points per second. In addition, when a nearby teammate defeats a wild Pokemon, that teammate gains slightly more Exp. Points.
Another held item that increases your movement speed is the EXP Share. It also increases your Pokemon's HP to give you a bit more endurance together with the speed bonus.
You can upgrade your Held Items to increase the bonus stats they give. This allows you to strengthen Float Stone's and Exp. Share's effects, and provide additional speed bonus as it reaches higher levels. You can upgrade them by using Item Enhancers, which can be bought from the store.
Moving within the Purple Flux along the allied controlled lanes will increase your Pokemon's movement speed. Make sure to stay inside them as you make your way to the end so you can reach Goal Zones quickly!
When the enemy destroys your team's Goal Zone, the flux along the lane will disappear, along with the movement speed bonus. The same will happen when you destroy an enemy Goal Zone. Overall, losing a Goal Zones will have a negative impact how fast you can get back into the battle. So, it is best to defend them as much as possible.
When an enemy Goal Zone is still present, the lane beyond it will contain an Orange Flux. Be careful, stepping into the enemy lane flux will decrease your movement speed and may leave you vulnerable to getting easily picked off.
You can also increase your Pokemon's movement speed by using certain moves in battle. Pokemon like Machamp has a superb arsenal of moves that can give itself boost in movement speed like Submission and Dynamic Punch, while Eldegoss can give a movement speed buff to allies with its Leaf Tornado.
Conversely, Pokemon like Alolan Ninetales and Gengar have moves that can inflict Slow, which reduces you Pokemon's movement speed. It is best to take note of their moves as you fight them so you can play around their debuffs.
Whether your team is pushing a Goal Zone or making a tactical retreat, knowing when to use these moves is key if you want to take advantage of the increase in movement speed while clashing with the opponent.
Cooldown: 50 seconds
Increases your Pokemon's Speed for 5 seconds. Your Pokemon's movement speed will not be able to decrease while this item is in effect.
Currently, X Speed is the only Battle Item that can increase a Pokemon's movement speed. Use this to close the gap between you and a retreating opponent, or catch up to Speedsters like Zeraora or Talonflame who are hard to target.
The additional effect that prevents you from getting slowed by opponents is also a nice bonus, as it gives you an option to use the item for defensive purposes.
Green berries appear at the Central part of the arena near the Legendary Pit (Zapdos area). Consuming these will give you a boost in movement speed for a very short amount of time.
Green berries are mostly utilized by the Jungler of the to farm wild Pokemon in the Central Area or transition to lanes faster. However, you can still consume them if you need to quickly change lanes. Overall, it is best not to go out of the lanes just to take the green berries without any good reason!
Your Pokemon's movement speed dictates how fast it can move in the battlefield. Simply put, the higher the movement speed a Pokemon has, the faster it can move to a location.
You can increase movement speed by staying within your team's Lane Flux, using moves, or equipping items that boost your movement speed. Be careful, your opponents can inflict debuffs that can reduce your movement speed.

Hi! We appreciate your questions.
1. We recommend Muscle Band, Focus Band, Scope Lens, and Buddy Barrier. We based our recommendation around winning team fights in order to secure objectives like Drednaw, Zapdos, and scoring points.
2. We've updated all builds to the current version (184.108.40.206).
3. We try to make builds that are useful in a variety of situations. Niche builds are only viable under very specific conditions or team compositions so you'll seldom ever use them
