How to Play Blissey

Play Blissey at Top or Bottom

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Providing Support for Absol.png

Blissey is a Support Pokemon, so you will have to choose either the top or bottom lane to stay in for the early game. This is due to Blissey not having Moves that can clear Wild Pokemon in the center quickly, but instead using Moves that can support ally Pokemon in lanes

Harass and Secure Early game

Blissey's basic attacks become boosted every few seconds rather than the number of attacks. This will allow Blissey to be able deal some good damage in a single attack, allowing you to trade damage with enemies or steal/secure wild Pokemon. Combined with its Pound Move, Blissey can deal decent early game damage with a single combo. Blissey has also got her heal to get back some lost health after exchanging blows.

Pair up with Allies with High Offense

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Obliterating Garchomp with Pound.png

Being a support Pokemon, Blissey can't dish out a lot of damage by itself. Instead, Blissey can help sustain teammates that can deal damage, making hem stay in the fight much longer. Stay near your damage dealing Pokemon like your Attackers, All-Rounders, and Speedsters, and use your heals and buffs so that they'll have the advantage over the enemy Pokemon and knock 'em out!

Tank Damage with Soft-Boiled

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Recovering HP with Soft Boiled

Soft-Boiled is a powerful Move that can turn Blissey into a deceptively tanky Pokemon. Not only do you have three charges of heals that can heal your ally, but it will also heal yourself. Enemy Pokemon can be easily baited in by Blissey when at low health then not be able to knock them out quick enough due to its heal.

Stay in the back without Soft-Boiled

If you are running Blissey without Soft-Boiled it is better to keep behind a teammate and not tank at all. Blissey has a lot of health without Soft-Boiled but low Defense, making it difficult to soak up enough damage to be considered tanky. Play it safe and buff your teammates from the backlines!

Use Egg Bomb for Tactical Stuns

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Stunning Lucario and Slowbro with an Egg Bomb

Learning Egg Bomb allows Blissey to have a damaging move that can be lobbed from a safe distance. Additionally, the move also provides decent crowd control if you or your team are in a pinch. Use it to set up offensive plays, or just stun enemies in place for a quick getaway.

Stay in the Center of your Team During Teamfights

Blissey's Helping Hand Move is one of the strongest Buffs in the game, giving your teammates faster Movement Speed and Attack Speed. If you position correctly during a teamfight, you will be able to buff your entire team and give them an edge over the enemy team. Keep using Helping Hand whenever its off cooldown and make sure you hit as many teammates as you can.

Use your Unite Move on your Strongest Ally

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Using Bliss Assistance

Your Unite Move is a powerful support ability that can not only make an ally durable by giving them shields and partially soak the damage, but will also buff their offense by increasing their Attack and Sp. Attack. Besided buffing a teammate, Blissey will also knock back any Pokemon in your way upon activation, allowing you to disrupt the enemy team. Timing this Unite Move right can save an ally and turn the tides of battle in your teams favor!

Blissey Combos

Egg Heal Combo

Egg Heal Combo
Soft-Boiled IconSoft-Boiled IconSoft-Boiled Icon

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Soft Boiled Save
Soft-Boiled x3 is Blissey's "don't die" move. Since Blissey can store 3 eggs at a time (more after upgrading), stocking them then spamming them on your injured ally is one way to keep them alive. Try to wait for them to get wounded first to maximize the heal's value.

Helping Hand Slap Combo

Helping Hand Slap Combo
Helping Hand IconStandard Attack Icon

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Helping Hand Slap Combo
Helping Hand is a strong move for increasing both your and your ally's DPS. Its secondary effect turns all your attacks into boosted attacks so it is recommended to utilize your normal attacks while using the move to maximize its effects.

Best Teammates for Blissey

Pokemon Explanation
Cramorant ImageCramorant UNITE Move Synergy
Blissey's Unite Move perfectly synergizes with Cramorant's. Not only will Cramorant gain a shield and have Blissey take some of the damage if the enemy decides to focus them while they are using their Unite Move, but they will also gain increased damage and the Unite Move even more potent. Even outside of the Unite Move synergy, Blissey can help Cramorant's survivability with heals and offense with buffs.
Snorlax ImageSnorlax Heals Help Sustain in Fights
Blissey's heal is not a high burst heal with high values. Instead, it is more of a sustain heal that can keep your teammates alive in longer fights. Hence, it is best used on Defenders that can't be bursted down. Blissey's heal combined with Snorlax's defense, is an unstoppable force in the arena. Helping Hand can also synergize with Snorlax's Flail, giving Snorlax some surprise damage!
