Note:
The emblem color and stats here are suggestions only. The builds are still viable even without the suggested emblems.

This build is centered on scouting targets with Shadow Sneak and sniping them using Spirit Shackle. Decidueye must always be at the backlines providing its team with constant damage using Spirit Shackle and must avoid getting out of position. The build is best ran at either the top or bottom lane with a Supporter or Defender to help Decidueye get through the early game.

Muscle Band helps Decidueye farm efficiently through increased attack speed and damage, especially during the early game. Float Stone provides a decent amount of movement speed and damage. Its effect allows Decidueye to rotate around the map faster to join its team or hunt targets. However, Attack Weight can be a replacement for Float Stone, sacrificing mobility for pure damage. Focus Band increases Decidueye's chances of survivability should an opponent charge at it or gets caught out of position.

X Speed is ideal for the build, improving Decidueye's mobility even further. It's useful for both chasing and escaping enemies.

The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Attack to further increase Spirit Shackle's damage. Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

This build turns Decidueye into a late-game damage dealer with the help Razor Leaf and Leaf Storm. It's also Decidueye's dedicated Jungle build.

Muscle Band gives Decidueye's attacks an HP-based effect, dealing more damage to the primary target. It also gives a decent damage and attack speed boost, which slightly improves Decidueye's attacks. Rapid-Fire helps Decidueye build up its Boosted Attacks faster thanks to the massive attack speed boost it gives, resulting in an increased DPS. It also synergizes well with Razor Leaf's attack speed boost and split shot effect, allowing Decidueye to shoot more quills before the effect expires. Drain Crown slightly boosts Decidueye's HP and damage, but its primary purpose is to allow Decidueye to recover HP with each attack, increasing its chances of survival during fights. It also works well with Razor Leaf's effects.

However, Scope Lens can be a replacement for Drain Crown, sacrificing survivability for better critical-hits. The attack speed boost from Muscle Band, Rapid-Fire Scarf, and Razor Leaf coupled with the increased critical-hit rate and damage from Scope Lens turns Decidueye into a full-blown damage dealer. Focus Band can also be a replacement for Drain Crown, giving Decidueye better defenses and a more reliable survivability tool.

X Speed makes up for Decidueye's lack of mobility. It's useful for chasing and escaping enemies. Alternatively, X Attack also fits with the build since it further increases Decidueye's damage output through increased damage and more attack speed. However, it's best to only choose X Attack if Decidueye has allies that can support it and tank enemy damage, otherwise, it's best to stick with X Speed.

The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-Hit Rate to maximize Decidueye's attack damage. Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

This build has a great mix of offense and defense and can be used in any lane with little to no dependency on having proper lane partner. It centers on dishing out damage through Standard Attacks with the help of Razor Leaf while having a mobility option using Shadow Sneak.

Muscle Band is Decidueye's main farming and damage tool, increasing its attack speed and giving its attacks an HP-based bonus damage effect. Scope Lens improves Decidueye's critical-hit rate and damage, which translates into more damage overall. Focus Band acts as Decidueye's survivability tool as it attacks enemies during fights, giving the Pokemon a fighting chance when it gets targeted.

X Speed adds more mobility to Decidueye and can be used offensively or defensively. However, X Attack can also work for Decidueye, improving its fighting capabilities during fights through increased damage and attack speed.

The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, or HP to balance out Decidueye's offense and defense. Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Decidueye Best Items & Moveset

Best Held Items

Item Explanation
Attack Weight.pngAttack Weight Attack Weight provides a huge boost to Decidueye's damage output when fully stacked. It's best used only when going for a Spirit Shackle build.
Score Shield.pngScore Shield Score Shield gives some durability to Decidueye through increased HP. However, it's only recommended if Attack Weight is also equipped, making it easier to stack the item.
Float Stone.pngFloat Stone Float Stone provides a decent static boost to Decidueye's mobility and damage.
Focus Band.pngFocus Band Focus Band is the best defensive item for Decidueye since it has to stay alive for as long as possible to do damage, increasing its durability and providing a reliable survivability tool.
Scope Lens.pngScope Lens Scope Lens improves Decidueye's attack damage via critical-hits. It also works well with Razor Leaf's effects.
Muscle Band.pngMuscle Band Muscle Band is a staple damage item for Decidueye, especially when playing as a carry Pokemon. Much like Scope Lens, it works well with Razor Leaf's effects.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Shadow Sneak ImageShadow Sneak Shadow Sneak gives Decidueye more mobility, allowing it to quickly reposition itself when enemies get close. Additionally, the move can reveal hidden opponents and slow them down for you to target.
Spirit Shackle ImageSpirit Shackle Spirit Shackle allows Decidueye to deal massive damage from a safe distance, making it a great tool for assassinating fleeing enemies.

Spirit Shackle gives Decidueye the ability to deal high burst damage from afar, crippling the enemy team before they can engage. It's also a great way to steal or secure objectives like Regieleki and Rayquaza. Shadow Sneak allows Decidueye to scout targets from a distance and make it more vulnerable for a short duration.

Decidueye's playstyle relies solely on whether you pick Spirit Shackle or Razor Leaf. Choosing Spirit Shackle turns Decidueye into a long-ranged burst damage dealer, while Razor Leaf makes it into a traditional standard attack carry. You can choose either of the other moves to pair with these two.

How to Play Decidueye

Jump to Section

Focus on Farming Wild Pokemon in the Early Game

Decidueye gets its power spike when it reaches level 7 where it gets to learn Razor Leaf or Spirit Shackle. This means you are stuck with its initial moves for most of the early game. So it is best to get EXP from farming and defeating opponents as much as you can to reach higher levels.

Use Early Game Moves Defensively

Decidueye's first set of moves - Leafage and Astonish - are meant to reinforce its basic attacks and help lanes deal additional damage. Be sure to pair up with a Pokemon that has HP or Defense so you can have a bodyguard to protect you. It will also help if you position Decidueye near an allied goal zone to get extra shields and HP recovery when needed. Getting knocked down early means losing precious time to get EXP and making your opponents stronger.

Reach Boosted Attacks by Every Available Target

Successfully attacking any target a total of 5 times will make Decidueye's Basic attack turn from a single shot into a flurry of quills. Stack up on boosted attacks by targeting Wild Pokemon before you engage with opponents. Reaching full Boosted Attacks allows Decidueye to melt enemies faster because of the increase in attack speed.

Boosted Attacks Guide: How to Use

Utilize the Orange Buff

Escavalier's Orange Buff increases Decidueye's efficiency in battles, especially when used with Razor Leaf. The slow effect allows you to kite enemies and build up your Boosted Attacks

It's important to note that the slow effect only applies to your primary target. Enemies hit by Razor Leaf's split shot are not affected.

Escavalier: Spawn Time, Buff, and Information

Choose Spirit Shackle for Burst Damage

Choosing Spirit Shackle gives Decidueye high burst damage potential since it deals extra damage to low HP opponents.

Spirit Shackle: Decidueye Move Effect and Cooldown

Charge Up Spirit Shackle at a Safe Distance

Always be careful when charging up Spirit Shackles since it makes you a likely target for your opponents. It's best to play from the backlines or behind your allies when using the move.

Filling the Entire Gauge is Unnecessary

Note that you don't have to fill the entire gauge to get the most damage. Instead, you can release the charge once you reach the threshold and it will still hit with max damage.

Release Instantly for Quick Damage

You can also release Spirit Shackle instantly even before it reaches the threshold to deal quick damage. Although this won't deal max damage, it can be useful in situations where you need a quick and small burst of damage to finish off targets.

Adjust Targetting Controls for Spirit Shackle

Spirit Shackle is a heavy-hitting move that can easily pressure an opponent's HP if it is fully charged. However, it is not a sure-hit move, meaning that it has a chance to miss entirely. If you are having a hard time getting the arrows to hit, you can adjust your game settings to give you more control over targeting with the move.

Targeting and Aim Assist: How to Aim Well

Turn Off Move Aim Snaps to Nearby Target

Pokemon UNITE - Decidueye Aim Snaps to Nearby Targets

To get the best aim possible, turn off Move Aim Snaps to Nearby Targets. Leaving this setting enabled may disrupt your aiming. This includes snapping to nearby Wild Pokemon or a different opponent.

Turn Off Aim Assist

Pokemon UNITE - Decidueye Aim Assist Settings

Turning off Aim Assist entirely gives you more influence in determining where the arrow goes when fired. A good strategy is to predict where the target is going and set your aim in that direction.

Choose Razor Leaf to Play a Traditional Damage Dealer

Choosing Razor Leaf turns Decidueye into a traditional carry Pokemon similar to Cinderace since it improves your attacks.

Farm Effectively with Razor Leaf

The split shot effect of Razor Leaf is great for farming grouped Wild Pokemon like the Swablus and Altaria. It guarantees that each attack hits as long as an enemy within range. It is best to activate it as soon as it is available to take advantage of the increase in attack speed and extra damage output.

Shred Enemies from a Safe Distance

It's crucial to create as much distance between you and your enemies when attacking, especially in large teamfights. Decidueye is most effective and deadly if it can freely shred enemies from a safe distance. You can also simply stay behind highly durable allied Pokemon like Snorlax or stay beside healers like Blissey, increasing your chances of survival.

If you don't have any allies nearby, you can utilize objects in the map, such as walls, to create a blockade between you and your enemies. Manuveur around the blockade and shred your enemies with attacks. You can also use Eject Button or X Speed to quickly reposition.

Take Out Boss Pokemon Quickly

Razor Leaf's attack speed increase allows you to shred through boss Pokemon like Rayquaza quickly. However, once the move is upgraded, you can deal even more damage to them since you deal extra damage the higher their HP is.

Get Out of Confrontations with Leaf Storm

Decidueye lacks any form of Dash moves that can help it escape. Positioning Decidueye at a safe distance not only increases its damage output thanks to Long Reach but also keeps its HP from getting pressured. Pushing opponents who get too close with a Leaf Storm helps Decidueye maintain the distance and set up knockdowns if followed up with attacks. If push comes to shove, it can be used as Decidueye's escape mechanism when it gets compromised.

Leaf Storm: Decidueye Move Effect and Cooldown

Scout for Enemies Using Shadow Sneak

You can use Shadow Sneak to scout for enemies who might be lurking nearby. It also works on enemies hiding in grass, revealing them for a while.

Shadow Sneak: Decidueye Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Unite Move Before a Team Fight

Decidueye's Unite move, Nock Nock, does not impact the battle immediately compared to other unite moves. However, it is a great way to slowly chip away at the opponents' HP at a distance before teams clash. Make sure to position Decidueye behind sturdy allies like Defenders or All-Rounders to get extra protection from opponents who try to get close.

Nock Nock: Decidueye Move Effect and Cooldown

Watch Out for High-Burst Pokemon

Pokemon like Gengar or Absoll can quickly knock out Decidueye with their high burst damage. Watch out for Pokemon like them and avoid going near them.

Best Teammates for Decidueye

Pokemon Explanation
Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Snorlax ImageSnorlax Tsareena ImageTsareena Durable Frontliner Disablers
Pokemon that can stay in the frontlines to soak damage and disable enemies are perfect as Decidueye's teammates. These Pokemon can create space for Decidueye using moves like Block and Barrier, allowing the Pokemon to continuously dish out damage through it Standard Attacks. They can also dish out sufficient damage with moves like Stomp and Confusion that allows Decidueye to take out enemies quicker, which also saves them from getting knocked out as a result.
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Provides Survivability
Decidueye has a bad early-game and requires a lot of time before it reaches its power spike. Pokemon that provide any form of survivability can carry Decidueye safely through its tough early-game. Pokemon like Alolan Ninetales can provide protection using Aurora Veil while simultaneously dealing damage using Dazzling Gleam and Snow Globe, giving Decidueye both offensive and defensive support. On the other hand, dedicated supporters like Eldegoss can constantly heal and shield Decidueye as it shreds enemies with its attacks.
Gengar ImageGengar Pikachu ImagePikachu Urshifu ImageUrshifu Deals High Burst Damage
Pokemon with high burst damage moves can also work well with Decidueye. They can deal enough damage with moves like Wicked Blow and Electro Ball to allow Decidueye to secure knockouts easily. Moreoever, some Pokemon can also disable enemies using moves like Dream Eater and Volt Tackle, which benefits Decidueye both offensively and defensively.
