Gengar Hex Bug

A Bug That Makes Hex Deal No Damage

The Gengar Hex Bug is a Bug that makes Hex not deal any damage at all! This either happens if used as is or even if used together with Sludge Bomb.

Does Not Happen Every Time

Gengar's Hex isn't a permanent bug. The move still works normally and can still deal damage but there will be times when the bug will happen. If it does, you'll be put in a disadvantageous situation in the middle of the enemy ranks without a Hex to help you fight them off. It's a game changing bug that can cause a defeat if it does happen.

How to Fix Gengar Bug

At the time of writing, there are no ways to counterplay this as a player. The only choice is to avoid picking Gengar up in patch (or longer if the bug persists) and wait for Unite's Dev team to make a fix for this bug.

      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 (
      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
