Dodrio Guide: Builds and Best Items

Dodrio Character Spotlight

Dodrio was officially revealed during the Pokemon UNITE Anniversary Phase 2 announcement. It was revealed together with Mew and Scizor.

UNITE 1st Anniversary: Phase 2 Updates and Features

Dodrio Basic Information

Confirmed To Be a Speedster

The official Pokemon UNITE Youtube channel has confirmed that Dodrio will join the UNITE roster as the 5th Speedster! It has been a while since a new Speedster was introduced so we're excited!

Have a Different Scoring Method

In both the reveal video and the spotlight, we see Dodrio rush to a goal zone and score three times in a row. The Pokemon may have a different way of scoring goals, which may synergize well with score-related items like Attack Weight and Aeos Cookie if each score contributes to the stack bonus!

Dodrio Stats

Likely has High Mobility

Like in the mainline games, we expect Dodrio to have a highly mobile moveset.

Low Endurance

Like other Speedsters in the roster, Dodrio will likely have a low Endurance stat. It will likely depend on its high mobility to compensate for the low defenses it has.

Dodrio Pre-Released Moves

Jump Kick

Dodrio's first official move revealed is Jump Kick. Dodrio leaps forward and does a kick. If it makes contact with an enemy or an obstacle, it jumps over it and stomps the ground, dealing damage to targets in the area and slowing them for a short duration.

Passive Ability: Run Away

Dodrio's passive ability, Run Away, makes it so that everytime Dodrio moves, it recharges its sprint gauge. Fully recharging said sprint gauge provides Dodrio increased movement speed!

Beware though - if Dodrio's movement speed decreases below a set speed, the gauge will rapidly deplete.

Unite Move: Triple Trample

Dodrio's Unite Move is Triple Trample. Dodrio runs to the target location, becoming immune to hindrances, and throwing and dealing damage to enemies in its path. Afterwards, Dodrio recieves buffs.
