Zapdos Nerf

Pokemon UNITE - Zapdos Nerf Now Gives 15 Aeos Energy

Defeating Zapdos will still give the player who dealt the final hit 30 Aeos Energy. However, their teammates will now get 15 Aeos Energy instead of the previous 20. It may not seem much of a decrease, but if you consider that scored points are doubled in the final stretch of the match, that is almost a 40 point reduction.

Drednaw Nerf

Pokemon UNITE - Drednaw Shield Effect Nerfed

Defeating Drednaw now gives almost half the shields compared to last time. Also, the EXP bonus has been decreased slightly, but it is still worth contesting for.

Drednaw Buff and Spawn Time

Rotom Buff

Pokemon UNITE - Rotom Charge Goals Buff

Rotom now charges an enemy goal zone for 24 seconds compared to the previous 14 seconds. It also received a movement speed, HP, and attack buff, making it a more formidable boss Pokemon compared to before.
