Attacker Guide: How to Play Attackers

SS Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Venusaur ImageVenusaur S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Amazing Skill Synergy
Venusaur is just dominating in the current. The synergy between Petal Dance and Giga Drain just makes it an unkillable, self-healing machine!
Pikachu ImagePikachu S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Amazing long range lockdown
Pikachu's insane damage and ability to lock enemies down with Stuns earns it a spot among great Attackers. This Pokemon can systematically wipe entire enemy teams if unchecked. It's UNITE move charge rate buff in Version 1.3.1.7 makes it a really good late-game AoE damage dealer!

S Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Greninja ImageGreninja S Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Juke Supreme
Greninja is an Attacker that performs well in later stages of a match with its solid damage and mobility. The clones produced by Double Team also makes it a powerful juker especially since auto-attacks target the clones first before Greninja!
Cinderace ImageCinderace S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Single target destroyer
Cinderace is great Attacker in the current roster because of its incredibly high single target damage and long range. This Pokemon also has a surprisingly decent amount of mobiity, allowing it to be elusive while sniping key targets from afar. Cinderace's only issue is that its early game is very weak and needs a lot of farming to quickly rush its evolutions.
Sylveon ImageSylveon S Rank Icon Top/Bot
A Mobile Turret
Sylveon is a great Attacker that has a perfect mix between offense and defense. It can continuously deal damage onto an enemy while at the same time keeping itself topped up using lifesteal and defensive abilities. It can hop in and out of battle while dealing damage making it a very hard Pokemon to catch.

A Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales A Rank Icon Top/Bot
Crowd Control or Damage?
Alolan Ninetales suffer from being too balanced - you can either build it focused on CC or damage. This just makes it a jack of all trades that can be outclassed on the role you choose to run it with.
Cramorant ImageCramorant A Rank Icon Top/Bot
The nerf is bad
Cramorant's UNITE move being nerfed just made it not as amazing as it was before. Also, Cramorant being quite hard to use isn't doing it any favor. It still deals damage but just not as much as before.
Decidueye ImageDecidueye A Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
It's Raining Arrows
Decidueye is an offensive powerhouse that can consistently deal tons of damage with its extremely fast attack speed. However, it lacks consistent mobility options that leaves it a sitting duck if its combos fail to KO the opposing Pokemon.

B Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Gardevoir ImageGardevoir B Rank Icon Jungle/Top
A late bloomer in a fast-paced battle
Patch 1.3.1.2 increased Gardevoir's playability by making its early game scaling faster. When you manage to hit the right beats and reach higher levels, Gardevoir excels at zoning enemies out in team fights with powerful AoE moves that deal insanely high damage to anyone they hit.

Roster Tier List and Evaluations

Tier List Criteria

Full Criteria

Criteria
Power Level Team Impact Ease-of-Use Rank Usage

Each of these factors determine the Pokemon's place within the tier list. Read on to learn what they refer to exactly:

  • Power Level: Determines how strong a Pokemon is in theory (when its potential is realized; optimized itemization and playstyle).
  • Team Impact: Determines how instrumental a Pokemon is from a team's perspective. What does the Pokemon bring to the table and how effective is this to achieve victory?
  • Ease-Of-Use: When two things perform at roughly the same power level, the one that's easier to use is always better. We always have to consider the amount of effort it takes to play certain Pokemon into account.
  • Rank Usage: We kept a close eye on a Pokemon's performance in high rank matches to get a better glimpse at its overall potential in certain high-level match ups and scenarios.

      A bit late, but could I join? I’m relatively new to masters, but I play Snorlax, Eldegoss and Dragonite decently well. My trainer code is KTRH0GF and my discord is IDunno#2708 (y’know, just in case).
