This is Game8's tier list for the best Defenders in Pokemon UNITE. Read on to know each Defender's strengths, weaknesses, and how they measure up against each other in the current meta!
List of Contents
|A tough shield to break|
|Snorlax is amazing at stalling and setting enemies up for follow-ups and combos. Block and Yawn can be used in a variety of offensive and defensive scenarios, which ultimately boils down to the player's skill and imagination.|
|The king of the front lines|
|Crustle's amazing versatility lets it sit at the top spot among Defenders in the current roster. This Pokemon can either split fights up with walls or take the fight to enemies directly with sudden bursts of speed and damage. Its solid damage output from melee range makes enemy teams think twice before engaging in fights and skirmishes.|
|The perfect initiator|
|While weak at the start, once Blastoise reaches level 7, Blastoise's damage output increases drastically. Rapid Spin and Surf are excellent crowd control moves, which shines in big teamfights. Blastoise's lethality skyrockets and becomes the perfect initiator. However, the recent nerf to Hydro Typhoon caused Blastoise to drop a tier.|
|Needs mastery, but offers high reward|
|Greedent lives up to its reputation as a tricky Defender. Those who don't mind a few quirks will see how Greedent can sustain itself with Stuff Cheeks, and how you can easily melt opponents and boss Pokemon with Belch after swooping down with Berry Belly Flop. Greedent has great potential, but is held back by its complex gameplay mechanics.|
|Amazing crowd control|
|Slowbro brings an incredible amount of control in fights and skirmishes. This Pokemon's ability to shut key targets down with Surf, Slowbeam, and Telekenesis makes it a major threat in fights that is difficult to eliminate due to its naturally high durability as a Defender.|
|Stun. Freeze. Repeat.|
|Mamoswine's entire moveset comes with some variation of stuns, freezes, or knockups, ensuring enemies will have a hard time fighting back. It can start a fight with Earthquake or High Horsepower, and follow up with a freeze or stun-and-displace combo using Icicle Crash or Ice Fang, respectively. The only issue is that Mamoswine's damage output is mediocre and that access to its Unite Move is locked at a very late level 10.|
|Power Level||Team Impact||Ease-of-Use||Rank Usage|

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).
Cuz it isn't good and that's what many people think. It also takes his only mobility move he has
