Best Builds for Blissey


Buff Build

Moveset Held Items
Battle Item

This build focuses on using Blissey's support abilities to its maximum extent. You won't do much damage on your own, but you can unlock your allies' full damage potential with this build, especially when paired with a potent Attacker or Speedster.

Safeguard focuses on removing all debuffs from your allies and makes them immune from all hindrances. If used in conjunction with Helping Hand, this will boost their movement and attack speed plus make their basic attacks to boosted attacks. With the immunity to hindrances, they basically can plow through a lot of Pokemon and deal some insane damage.

Offensive Healer Build

Moveset Held Items
Battle Item

This build focuses on Blissey's healing capabilities and changing things up with a more offensive use for skills. This focuses on Blissey going into the frontlines with her teammates and using their basic attacks for maximum effect.

Helping Hand should be your go to skill in this build to boost your team's damage. Soft-Boiled will be your team's main sustain mechanism for this build. Heal your team (including yourself) if you get damaged. This effectively increases suvivability to keep the damage going.

Lastly, use Eject Button to jump out of the fight once the Helping Hand's effects wear off.

Blissey Best Items & Moveset

Best Held Items

Item Description
Exp. Share.pngExp. Share 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.
Score Shield.pngScore Shield While the Pokemon is attempting to score a goal, it is granted a shield equal to (5/7.5/10)% of its max HP and its goals cannot be interrupted while it is shielded.
Buddy Barrier.pngBuddy Barrier When the Pokemon uses its Unite Move, that Pokemon and the nearby ally Pokemon with the lowest HP are each granted a shield equal to (20/30/40)% of their max HP.
Focus Band.pngFocus Band When the Pokemon drops to low HP, then each second for three seconds, it recovers (8/11/14)% of the HP it has lost.
Wise Glasses.pngWise Glasses Increases Sp Attack by (3/5/7)%.

Held Item Tier List: Best Items to Equip
Support items like Exp. Share allows you to passively gain experience without sharing the wild Pokemon with your laning partner to maximize their farming potential while Buddy Barrier grants a shield to the nearest low-HP ally in your party.

Score Shield can be a substitute for Exp. Share, sacrificing a bit of supporting for goal aggression. The exp. you get from being able to score goals better with Score Shield can make up for the exp. you get from Exp. Share. It also works extremely well with Safeguard's shield effect, and the innate shield from Bliss Assistance, making it extremely hard for your enemies to break through all the shields when Blissey is scoring goals.

Conversely, offensive items like Focus Band and Wise Glasses helps with increasing the damage dealt by Blissey. Destroy them while sustaining your team!

Best Battle Items

Item Description
Eject Button.pngEject Button Makes your Pokemon move quickly in the specified direction.

Using the Eject Button allows Blissey to go in and out of battle quickly. If you think about it, Blissey is a healer tank so going in the middle of a clash while sustaining your party it its forte. Also, when you're about to get obliterated, you may also use the Eject Button to escape!

Best Moveset

Move Description
Safeguard ImageSafeguard Removes all status conditions from the designated ally Pokemon and makes it immune to hindrances for a short amount of time. Upgraded to Safeguard+ when the Pokemon reaches Lv. 12.
Upgrade: Also grants the designated ally Pokemon a shield.
Helping Hand ImageHelping Hand For a short time, greatly increases the user's and nearby ally Pokemon's movement speed and basic attack speed. While this move's effects last, all of the user's basic attacks become boosted attacks. Upgraded to Helping Hand+ when the Pokemon reaches Lv. 10.
Upgrade Increases the damage of basic attacks while this move's effects last.

Safeguard and Helping Hand basically makes sure that your allies are not being hindered by any debuff while being able to dish out tons of damage.

Debuffs are quite strong in this game and eliminating that problem with Safeguard improves your overall offense. Add that to the attack speed, attack damage, and movement speed boost provided by Helping Hand and you can make anyone in your team a fighting machine.

How to Play Blissey

Play Blissey at Top or Bottom

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Going to Top Lane

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 top or bottom.

Harass and Secure Early game

Blissey's basic attacks become boosted every few seconds rather than every nth 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.

Play with Damage Dealing Pokemon

Pokemon UNITE - Blissey Supporting Alolan Ninetales

Being a support Pokemon, Blissey can't dish out a lot of damage by itself. Instead, Blissey can help and enable teammates that can deal damage. 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 Using 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!

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

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

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.

Counter by Out-damaging Blissey's Heals

Blissey is a walking ambulance and the only way to defeat a Blissey-supported team is to out-damage its heals.

Best Counters

Pokemon Explanation
Zeraora ImageZeraora Rating: ★★★★★
・Speed and dash attacks are just too overwhelming for Blissey.
Soft-boiled cannot out-heal the damage dealt by Zeraora.
Absol ImageAbsol Rating: ★★★★★
・Same with Zeraora, its speed and damage out-damages Soft-boiled's healing potential.
Soft-boiled cannot be spammed and has a 2s cooldown in between - use this chance to burst down the enemy.
Greninja ImageGreninja Rating: ★★★★★
・Ranged nightmare for a Blissey-supported team.
・Damage potential is too big for Blissey to heal.
Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Rating: ★★★★
・Debuffs can paralyze your team and leave you open.
・Can be countered with Safeguard but Wigglytuff can still outdamage Blissey by a lot.
・Opting for Safeguard requires you to drop Soft-boiled, which is one of the best ways Blissey can sustain a team.

Even Matchups

Even matchups are always a matter of skill, luck, and timing. Here are some tips to help push Blissey ahead against other Pokemon on equal footing.

Cleanse Attackers That Relies on Debuffs

Pokemon that Relies on Debuffs
Gardevoir Image Alolan Ninetales Image Eldegoss Image Snorlax Image Pikachu Image Mr. Mime Image

Lots of Pokemon has debuffs in their skills to help themselves dish out damage. Most of these Pokemon needs to properly setup their debuffs to maximize damage. A Safeguard Blissey can easily counter them by removing all debuffs on your team!

Out-heal Damage Using Soft-boiled

Pokemon That Blissey Can Out-Heal
Cramorant Image Venusaur Image Crustle Image Machamp Image Blastoise Image Mamoswine Image

Some Pokemon cannot simply damage Blissey enough that Soft-boiled becomes null. All the damage dished out by these Pokemon can be healed by Soft-boiled so don't be afraid to go toe-to-toe!

Survive and Catch Ganking Pokemon

Pokemon That Can Gank Blissey
Garchomp Image Talonflame Image

These Pokemon may gank you but their damage is not enough to actually destroy you. When they fail to do so, they will retreat! Catch them with a well-timed Helping Hand to boost your Attacker's movement speed, attack speed, and attack damage to catch them and burst them down!

Best Matchups for Blissey

Pokemon Explanation
Charizard ImageCharizard Charizard's measly attacks can be easily negated with Blissey's healing and with Helping Hand, there's little Charizard can do outside of its Unite Move to prevent a quick defeat in the hands of Blissey's boosted attack and incredible bulk.
Gengar ImageGengar Gengar's pesky Sludge Bomb-Hex combo has met its match in Blissey's Safeguard. Hex will no longer be boosted nor its cooldown reset which allows Blissey to easily counter it with Helping Hand and auto attacks.
Slowbro ImageSlowbro Slowbro's main advantage in battle is slowing and stunning opponents, both of which Blissey can negate. With those out of the way, Blissey can simply run up to Slowbro and attack him till he goes down.

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!
