Tips for Playing Boss Rush

Use the Aeos Shield Properly!

Zacian will periodically use its ultimate move, Behemoth Blade, to slice the whole arena and deal massive damage. To mitigate this, an Aeos Shield is provided at the center of the arena that one member of the team should use.

When holding the shield, don't forget to activate the shield in time for Behemoth Blade's swipe! Simply holding the shield does nothing, and can still damage your entire team.

How to Activate the Shield

To activate the shield, simply press Y on Switch or tap the Battle Item button on Mobile. You'll know the shield is activated when it glows yellow. The active window for the shield is really short however, so make sure to use it in time for Zacian's blade swipe.

Use Fluffy Tail

Boss Pokemon are considered wild Pokemon so Fluffy Tail would work on them. Use this to deal increased damage in this game mode.

Fluffy Tail Effect and How to Get

Take Berries from the Side!

Sitrus Berries will periodically spawn during the entire fight. Use it whenever you're low on health.

Have a Healer in Your Team

Pokemon with Heals
Blissey ImageBlissey Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Clefable ImageClefable Comfey ImageComfey

Healers are extremely important in this game mode. Boss Pokemon deal huge damage so a constant stream of healing would be really helpful.

Fill Up the Stun Meter to Stun the Boss Pokemon!

There is a special stun meter found below the Pokemon's HP that you need to fill up by attacking. Once filled up, the Boss Pokemon will be stunned for a short while and leaves it open for attacks!

Crowd Control Moves Does Not Work

Crowd Control from moves would not work on Boss Pokemon, as it always has even in the usual UNITE battle format.

Take Note of the Move Announcements

Upcoming Boss moves will be announced via a text below the Boss Pokemon health bar. Take note of the move to know how to respond!

Be Mindful of the Move Area of Effect Indicators

Some moves also have area of effect indicators, showing you which areas to avoid. Take note of this and evade them accordingly.

Best Pokemon to Use

Long Ranged Damage Dealers

Longe Ranged Damage Dealers
Cinderace ImageCinderace Greninja ImageGreninja Pikachu ImagePikachu
Decidueye ImageDecidueye Dragapult ImageDragapult Delphox ImageDelphox

Pokemon with long ranged moves or long attack range are great against the bosses in Boss Rush. Pokemon like Greninja and Cinderace can attack relatively safely from a distance and chip away the bosses' HP. Also, Sp. Atk type Pokemon like Pikachu and Delphox can bombard the bosses with their low-cooldown, burst damage moves from a distance.

Brawlers and Physical Burst

Melee Brawlers
Azumarill ImageAzumarill Garchomp ImageGarchomp Tsareena ImageTsareena Machamp ImageMachamp
Urshifu ImageUrshifu Zacian ImageZacian Scizor ImageScizor Buzzwole ImageBuzzwole

Brawler type Pokemon like Garchomp and Tsareena are also great picks for Boss Rush. They can pummel boss Pokemon with their attacks and/or combos while also tanking a bit of damage for the team.

Azumarill needs a special mention here as its unique passive Huge Power deals critical damage when facing one enemy. This is especially useful in this mode since you'll be facing one enemy Pokemon most of the time!

Mobile and High Burst Damage

Mobile & Burst Pokemon
Absol ImageAbsol Zeraora ImageZeraora Lucario ImageLucario
Dragonite ImageDragonite Urshifu ImageUrshifu Zoroark ImageZoroark

Mobile Pokemon with high physical burst damage output like Absol and Zeraora can also do great in Boss Rush. Their moveset allows them to quickly manuveur around the area to dodge bosses' moves while also dealing high burst damage.

Healers and Shielders

Strong Supports
Blissey ImageBlissey Hoopa ImageHoopa Clefable ImageClefable

Strong supports like Blissey, Clefable, and Hoopa, although they don't do much damage, can provide the team with healing, shielding, and buffs. Their constant support can prevent their allies from dying and having to go back to the base, wasting time as a result.

Fun fact I found when using dragonite in boss rush, he doesn't slip from frost breath. I guess because Dragonite is levitating so he isn't touching the ground. This also works on other levitating pokemon, like talonflame, Gengar (I haven't tested it yet but it shouldn't affect Gengar because he naturally has the levitate ability), and dragapult.
