Sustain Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This is a high-sustain build centered on leaping towards targets with Mystical Fire and staying on top of them using Draining Kiss. It can also be used as a jungle build since Mystical Fire is an effective gank move.
· Wise Glasses provides Sylveon with a large Sp. Atk. stat boost thanks to its percentage bonus, increasing its overall damage and healing.
· Shell Bell gives Sylveon more Sp. Atk. stat and another source of healing. It also gives a slight cooldown reduction for the Pokemon's moves.
· Focus Band provides Sylveon more durability through increased defenses and acts as another sustain tool.
· Potion gives Sylveon a quick and easy way to recover HP during combat. It synergizes when will Sylveon's relatively high HP plus the healing from Focus Band.
· X Speed can also work with the build, exchanging sustain for more mobility.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 7 Black Emblems for some move cooldown reduction and 6 Green Emblem to maximize its damage.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Black and Green.
· Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. to further improve Sylveon's move damage and healing, particularly from Draining Kiss.
· Attack, Sp. Def., Defense, and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered mainly around healing, equipping items that will maximize Sylveon's sustainability is the best item combination. Focus Band is a core item for the build, leaving only two (2) items for consideration.

Out of all the item combinations, Wise Glasses and Shell Bell will produced the best outcomes for the build. The item combination has the most decent results with the second best Draining Kiss healing.

As for alternatives, replacing Wise Glasses with Choice Specs would be the best choice. The item combination emphasizes more on damage but still heals decently.


These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

Hyper Voice Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build focuses on dealing continuous burst damage using Hyper Voice while protecting Sylveon using Calm Mind. Remember to use Calm Mind first before Hyper Voice to increase Sylveon's damage and defense while channeling.
· Wise Glasses provides Sylveon with a large Sp. Atk. stat boost thanks to its percentage bonus, increasing its overall damage.
· Choice Specs gives Sylveon more Sp. Atk. stat and increases its minimum move damage.
· Slick Spoon further boosts Sylveon's damage and allows it to ignore a portion of its targets' Sp. Def., increasing its damage overall, especially for Hyper Voice.
· X Speed improves Sylveon's overall mobility, which is useful for various situations.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 7 Black Emblems for some move cooldown reduction and 6 Green Emblem to maximize its damage.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Black and Green.
· Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. to give Sylveon more damage, particularly for Hyper Voice.
· Attack, Sp. Def., Defense, and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build revolves around Hyper Voice, equipping items that will maximize its damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Wise Glasses, Choice Specs, and Slick Spoon will yield the best outcome for the build. Although the item combination did not generate the highest results, it does not require Sylveon to stack an item to achieve maximum damage and gives a consistent damage boost from the start.

As for alternatives, replacing Wise Glasses with Sp. Atk. Specs would be the best option. The item combination produced the best results but does require Sylveon to fully stack Sp. Atk. Specs first to maximize Hyper Voice's damage.


These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

Sylveon Best Items & Moveset

Best Held Items

Item Explanation
Buddy Barrier.pngBuddy Barrier Buddy Barrier adds some durability to Sylveon via increased HP. It also synergizes with its Unite Move, granting an extra layer of shield after using it.
Focus Band.pngFocus Band Focus Band adds another layer of Sp. Atk. defense on top of Calm Mind. It's also a reliable survivability tool during teamfights.
Wise Glasses.pngWise Glasses Wise Glasses gives a massive boost to Sylveon's Sp. Atk. stat. It synergizes with Sylveon's passive ability since it increases its Sp. Atk. stat each time Sylveon deals damage or receives it.
Choice Specs.pngChoice Specs Choice Specs functions the same as Wise Glasses, providing a decent amount of Sp. Atk stat.
Slick Spoon.pngSlick Spoon Slick Spoon's Sp. Def. penetration works well with Sylveon's stat-increasing mechanics, allowing the Pokemon to deal even more damage. It also provides increased Sp. Atk. and HP, which are essential to the Pokemon.

List of Held Items

Best Battle Items

Item Explanation
Eject Button.pngEject Button Eject Button is primarily used to reposition in and out of battle quickly, making Sylveon harder to catch.
X Speed.pngX Speed X Speed is similar to Eject Button but has a lower cooldown and provides immunity from slows for a short duration. It's particularly useful for staying on top of your target during Hyper Voice.
Potion.pngPotion Potion gives Sylveon an additonal sustain tool on top of Draining Kiss.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Draining Kiss ImageDraining Kiss Draining Kiss acts as both a damage and sustain move. It can potentially burst down a target if you get close enough.
Mystical Fire ImageMystical Fire Mystical Fire gives Sylveon the ability to dash around the battlefield while passively deal damage to opponents. Having a short cooldown allows you to keep Sylveon mobile while maintaining pressure.

This moveset gives Sylveon a good mix of damage, mobility, and survivability, and allows the Pokemon to more freedom to move around. Mystical Fire acts as Sylveon's main damage move while also improving its overall mobility. Draining Kiss is a recovery tool that can also deal pretty decent damage. It can turn to some what of a burst damage move if used in close proximity of a target.

Mystical Fire and Hyper Voice are Sylveon's primary damage move but each offer some other benefit.

Mystical Fire is a dash move but passively deals damage to random targets close to Sylveon. It gives the Pokemon more freedom to move around while dealing damage, which is great for making creative plays. However, since it targets opponents randomly, its damage will be scattered, dealing less damage to a single target.

Hyper Voice is Sylveon's strongest damage-dealing move. It allows the Pokemon to deal increasing amounts of damage from a relatively long range. However, it's also difficult to execute properly since it restricts Sylveon's facing angle to the chosen direction for the move's duration, making it easy for opponents to dodge it.

On the other hand, Draining Kiss and Calm Mind are Sylveon's utility moves. They compliment each of the other move from the first moveset.

Draining Kiss slows and deals damage to the target while healing Sylveon. It's useful for chasing targets down and/or staying in a fight longer. Its downside is that the move ends instantly when Sylveon or its target move too far away from each other, forcing Sylveon to stay within range of its target, which can be dangerous in certain situations.

Calm Mind is a strong buff move. It improves Sylveon's Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, and movement speed for its duration. Also, once the move is upgraded, it can protect the Pokemon from the opponents' move damage by nullifying it when they hit.

Choosing which pair of moves to select is entirely up to player preference due to how well Sylveon's moves synergize with each other.

How to Play Sylveon

Jump to Section

Set Up Moves with Baby-Doll Eyes

In the early game, using Baby-Doll Eyes will reduce the targeted opponent's movement speed. This will make your level 4 move - Mystical Fire or Hyper Voice - easy to set up and ensures maximum damage output.

Keep Pixilate Stacks Up

Thanks to its passive ability, Pixilate, Sylveon can stack up on bonus Sp. Atk and Sp. Def whenever Sylveon deals or receives damage. Try to keep Pixilate stacks up as much as you can by continuously dealing damage using your attacks or moves. You can also soak some damage, but be extremely careful as you can be bursted down.

Pixilate: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Focus on Getting to Level 4 at the Start

Just like all Eeveelutions, Sylveon gets its first move at level 4. Utiize this early power spike by focusing on farming wild Pokemon to get to level 4 as soon as you can at the start of the game.

Get Mystical Fire for Mobility

Mystical Fire is a great mobility move. If you like roaming around the map and hunting targets, consider getting Mystical Fire.

Mystical Fire: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Keep Mystical Fire Active

When using Mystical Fire, take advantage of its low cooldown speed and activate it as soon as it is available. Activating the move does not require a target, so you can have the flames ready before confronting an enemy. Doing so will help you put out damage faster.

Aim for Sp. Atk Pokemon

Apart from its damage, Mystical Fire also reduces the Sp. Atk stat of the target it hits, making it effective against Sp. Atk. Pokemon. Aim for Sp. Atk Pokemon as much as you can so you can reduce their damge output, especially during teamfights.

List of Special Pokemon (Special Attack Stat Users)

Get Hyper Voice for Damage

Hyper Voice offers a more reliable source of damage for Sylveon due to its scaling damage. If your focus is providing consistent damage, especially in a teamfight, getting Hyper Voice is the best choice.

Hyper Voice: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Keep Enemies at Max Range

When using Hyper Voice, make sure to keep enemies at the move's max range by moving around, maximizing the move's damage output.

Always Choose the Direction

It's best to always choose Hyper Voice's direction before using it instead of relying on the auto-lock function. This prevents you from facing the wrong direction and wasting the move.

Choose Your Compimentary Move

Draining Kiss and Calm Mind compliment your other move. Although both offer damage, they have their differences. Choose the one that best fits your playstyle.

Get Calm Mind for Flexibility

Calm Mind gives you flexibility since it buffs some of your stats, allowing you to be offensive or defensive depending on the situation. It also gives you some survivability once you upgrade it thanks to the nullifying effect and shield.

Calm Mind: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Get Draining Kiss for More Offense

Draining Kiss elevates your offensive capabilities while also providing some sustainability, reinforcing your aggression.

Draining Kiss: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Avoid Damage Using Fairy Frolic

There is a small window of invulnerability that you can exploit to avoid all incoming damage from attacks or moves once you cast Fairy Frolic. You can bait the enemy to use their moves on you, then use Fairy Frolic to avoid them, wasting their moves, and opening an oppurtunity for a counter-attack.

Fairy Frolic: Sylveon Move Effect and Cooldown

Leap Over Walls With Your Unite Move

When Sylveon leaps into the air with Fairy Frolic, you can control the direction of the leap and where it will land. Additionally, you can use Sylveon's Unite Move to leap over walls and other impassable terrain. Use this to surprise your opponents from a flank, or use it to escape pursuing enemies.

Sylveon Combos

This combo gives you a good balance of damage and healing. Dash around opponents with Mystical Fire, trigger a standard attack to fire the projectiles, then use Draining Kiss to damage enemies and recover lost Hp. This combo is potent enough to allow Sylveon to get aggressive, as long as you get multiple Draining Kiss heals.

Hyper Voice Combos

This set of combos utilizes both movesets using Hyper Voice as the main damage-dealing move.

This combo gives you less mobility than the other combos, but allows you to potentially deal high damage to multiple opponents at a time. Hyper Voice is a powerful move, but requires proper positioning and maneuvering to deal maximum damage. Using Calm Mind first will bolster your movement speed and stats, allowing you to have an easier time moving around while casting Hyper Voice.

Hyper Voice Sustain Combo

How to Beat
• Much like Sylveon, these Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can knock out Sylveon quickly. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Sylveon fast. Winning against these Pokemon is all a matter of striking first.
• When using Hyper Voice, activate Calm Mind first to buff Sylveon, then use Hyper Voice.
• When using Mystical Fire, get close to them using the move, then quickly use Draining Kiss to slow and damage them while recovering HP.
• As a last resort, use Fairy Frolic to dodge damage and recover HP.

How to Beat
• These Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or combos to deal damage. They are also durable enough to tank Sylveon's damage. However, they have to come close first to attack, making them susceptible to getting kited.
• When using Hyper Voice, activate Calm Mind first to buff Sylveon, then use Hyper Voice. Make sure to move around and maintain range.
• When using Mystical Fire, always maintain a safe distance for each use. Follow it up with Draining Kiss to slow them.
• Use Fairy Frolic to dodge their moves, especially sure-hit or disabling moves.

Take Them Out First

How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone. Although they themselves pose no threat to Sylveon, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights.
• It's best to take them out first during fights using Mystical Fire or Hyper Voice to remove their team's support or force them to defend themselves.
• Use Fairy Frolic to dodge their moves, especially sure-hit or disabling moves.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon
Blastoise Image Crustle Image Goodra Image Lapras Image Snorlax Image Trevenant Image Umbreon Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it hard for Sylveon to take them out alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Sylveon.
• Help deplete their HP using Mystical Fire or Hyper Voice.
• Use Draining Kiss to slow them.

Easy Matchups for Sylveon

Easy matchups are Pokemon that easily fall to Sylveon's high Sp. Atk moves and don't neccesarily have means of retaliating.

Best Teammates for Sylveon

Pokemon Explanation
Pikachu ImagePikachu Slowbro ImageSlowbro Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Disablers
Pokemon with disabling moves makes it easier for Sylveon to dish out damage. Strong single-target disabling moves like Slowbeam are the perfect set up for Hyper Voice due to its long duration, ensuring that each wave hits the target with maximum damage. Alternatively, AoE disabling moves that also weaken the enemy's defenses like Sing keeps enemies in place while amplifying Sylveon's move damage. For an full-on damage combo, using a move like Thunderbolt or Volt Tackle with Hyper Voice can quickly burst down most targets.
Machamp ImageMachamp Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Snorlax ImageSnorlax Aggressive Frontliners
Pokemon that can tank and deal damage in the frontlines have great synergy with Sylveon. They can turn the enemy's attention away from Sylveon and unto themselves, giving the Pokemon space to freely and safely dish out damage. Consequently, they also benefit from Sylveon's damage output, which can lead to a quick knock out. Moreover, they can help set up Sylveon's moves using their disabling moves like Heavy Slam and Submission.
Blissey ImageBlissey Dedicated Supporters
Pokemon that can constantly heal, shield, and buff Sylveon improve the Pokemon's gameplay. Since Sylveon needs to move around a lot to dish out damage, having Pokemon with moves like Helping Hand and Soft-Boiled further increases Sylveon's mobility and survivability during fights. This also enables Sylveon to be more aggressive as a result.

as a top 100 player when i played in masters back to back seasons then quit and even came back and tested both for past 3 days nonstop for many hours and mystical and drain is best because drain slows and can kite with it easier.

Sylveon is a nice and decent attacker, which is really cool too, because all of Sylveon's mix and matches are still pretty good. I like Sylveon Mystical Kiss, because it gives mobility. I used to play Hyper Mind, but sometimes I would miss and get killed :( My username is Alexkeet if anyone wanna check it out. Slyveon my main :)
