Moveset Combinations

Offense Movesets + Utility Movesets


This move combinations prioritizes increasing Mew's damage output. For offense, going for Solar Beam gives the Pokemon a passive, long-ranged approach, while Electro Ball allows Mew to get aggressive with its stun capability. For utility, Agility makes Mew nimble enough to maneuver around its opponents while dealing damage. On the other hand, shooting Electro Ball or Solar Beam through a Light Screen increases its effectiveness.

Offense-Focused Build Explanation

This build turns Mew into a dedicated damage dealer. To maximize damage, Mew needs to stay at the backlines during team fights and keep a safe distance away from enemies, since the build lacks defensive items. Although Mew can switch back and forth between its moveset, it will mostly rely on Light Screen and Solar Beam or Electro Ball as the main sources of damage due to their synergy and damage. Mew can also learn Agility as a repositioning tool if needed.

  • Wise Glasses provides Mew a large Sp. Atk. stat boost thanks to its percentage bonus.
  • Choice Specs gives Mew more Sp. Atk. stat and increases its minimum move damage.
  • Slick Spoon further adds more Sp. Atk. stat and grants Mew Sp. Def. penetration for its moves. It also gives a decent amount of HP for some durability.
  • Eject Button gives Mew a reliable reposition tool to keep its distance from enemies.
  • X Speed can also work with the build for the same purpose.
  • 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 Mew's move damage.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build focuses on offense, equipping items that will maximize Mew's damage, particularly for Electro Ball and Solar Beam, 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. The item combination's results are only slightly lower than the highest score but does not require Mew to stack any item to maximize its 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.

Moveset Combinations

Offense Movesets + Utility Movesets


This combination makes Mew act like an offensive-support Pokemon that enhances its teammates' effectiveness in battle and still contribute to the team's overall offense. Mew can sit at the backlines and provide suppressing fire with Solar Beam while increasing its allies' attack speed with Coaching or hinder enemy movement with Light Screen. Additionally, having extra HP from boost emblems and Buddy Barrier allows Mew to engage and disable opponents in fights using Surf.

Support-Focused Build Explanation

This build focuses on enhancing the team's effectiveness in combat while providing suppressing fire from a safe distance, turning Mew into a support Pokemon. It mainly revolves around shielding and buffing allies with Coaching, all while taking advantage of Synchronize's movement speed buff.

  • Exp. Share is Mew's primary support item, allowing its lane partner to level up faster and giving Mew a passive source of EXP. It also gives a decent movement speed boost for rotating and roaming the map and additional HP for durability.
  • Slick Spoon gives Mew Sp. Atk. and HP stats, and allows it to ignore a portion of its targets' Sp. Def., resulting to more damage.
  • Buddy Barrier provides an ample amount of HP to prolong Mew's life while it's supporting its team. It can also support an ally by giving it a shield when Mew uses its Unite Move.
  • Eject Button gives Mew a reliable reposition tool to keep its distance from enemies.
  • X Speed can also work with the build for the same purpose.
  • 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 Mew's move damage.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build focuses more on support, equipping items that will allow Mew to help its allies in any way is the ideal item combination. Exp. Share and Buddy Barrier are core items for the build, leaving only one item for consideration. The item for consideration should be the one that maximize Mew's damage.

Out of all the items tested, Slick Spoon will be the most benefitial for the build. The item gives a decent damage boost without the need to stack it and also provides a nice amount of HP for some durability.

How to Play Mew

Jump to a Section

Race to Level 5

Mew's power spike goes online when it reaches level 5. During the early game, it is best to focus on farming Wild Pokemon instead of prioritizing getting kills - unless opponents overextend.

Pick Electro Ball + Agility as Your Starting Moveset

For the best start, we recommend learning Electro Ball first as your damaging move because of its low cooldown and sure-hit move type. Then, when Mew reaches level 3, learn Agility to get extra mobility. This combination of moves gives Mew enough flexibility for farming Wild Pokemon or engaging in brawls with opponents during the early game.

Go to the Jungle Path for Fast EXP

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Taking the Jungler Role.png

The fastest way to reach high levels during the early game is to take the Jungler role and farm the Wild Pokemon present in the central area of the map. Here, you will most likely be alone in farming, giving you the full EXP.

Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

Never Fight Alone

Although Mew is capable of adapting to any situation with its Move Reset mechanic, you will find that it can still take time to shift between playstyles in the heat of battle. To increase your chance of survival and maximize your damage output, it is still best to treat Mew as a squishy Attacker that is at its best when it is close to its allies.

Activate Moves Near Allies

Thanks to Synchronize, each time the Mew uses a move, it and nearby ally Pokemon will have their movement speed increased for a short time. Aside from spamming moves whenever they are ready, always keep in mind where you activate your moves so your teammates can benefit from the extra effect, especially for moments where movement speed is important like retreating from a losing fight or chasing enemies.

Move Reset Mechanic Strategy

When Mew reaches level 5, it will have access to the Move Reset icon, which can be used to change its current moveset for a new one. This allows you to change your playstyle on the fly and adapt to any situation. While this mechanic is straightforward enough, here are some strategies to take note of to maximize the move's value:

Swap Out Moves That are on Cooldown

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Swapping Out a cooldown move

It is possible to switch out a move while it is still on cooldown. For example, after using Surf, you do not have to wait for its long cooldown to finish. Instead, you can use Move Reset to quickly switch to either Electro Ball or Solar Beam to maintain the offensive. You can do this with your other moveset too. So, try to exhaust your current moves first before switching to your other moves to get maximum value!

Reduce Move Reset Cooldown by Staying Active

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Scoring a Goal Zone

Synchronize's cooldown is reduced each time you knock out or assist in knocking out an opponent or score a goal. This incentivizes you for participating in team activities throughout the game by sticking with your allies, hunting down targets, or scoring points to utilize it. A good strategy is to score small amounts of points in quick succession to reduce Synchronize's cooldown as fast as possible.

Change Moves Based on Playstyle

Synchronize gives Mew a dynamic feel in battle. Once activated, you will get to select one (1) out of three (3) moves for each of your move slots. Since there are many moveset combinations that you can do, knowing which of them goes well with the other can be beneficial in realizing Mew's playstyle, especially in the heat of combat. Below are our suggestions for moveset combinations:

Burst Down Targets with Electro Ball

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Bursting Down a Target with Electro Ball.png

Electro Ball is a straightforward, damage move that is great for brawls. Although its range is a bit short, you will find its sure-hit type beneficial for dealing quick damage. Overall, its ability to stun targets while also being able to burst down low HP opponents makes it a great finisher move.

Electro Ball: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Snipe Targets from Afar with Solar Beam

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Bursting Down Duraludon with Solar Beam.png

Solar Beam is a long-ranged move that is capable of dealing massive amounts of damage on multiple enemies. One key mechanic of the move is its ability to reduce the cooldown for each opponent it hits once it is upgraded. However, you may find the move to be.

Solar Beam: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Disable Opponents Surf

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Riding the Waves with Surf.png

Surf is a great move that is useful for disrupting the opposing team during team fights. It is also a great initiating tool thanks to the defense buff it provides. Keep in mind, however, that it has a long cooldown, so plan your Surf activations accordingly.

Surf: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Get Extra Mobility with Agility

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Retreating with Agility.png

Agility is a quick and effective dash move that can be used to maneuver Mew around the battlefield to get clear shots. It also replenishes Mew's Boosted Meter when used, allowing you to easily pressure opponents constantly.

Surf: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Block Enemy Paths with Light Screen

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Setting Up Light Screen.png

Set up Light Screen to displace and hinder enemy movement. You can even use its second activation to turn the wall into a shield for extra protection. Moreover, you can use it to combo off with your damaging moves as attacking through the wall boosts their effectiveness.

Light Screen: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Protect Allies with Coaching

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Protecting Allies with Coaching.png

Coaching is a great support-based move that allows you to give your teammates buffs and shields in quick succession. One key interaction with this move is its ability to reduce your damaging move's cooldown by a significant amount if you manage to use Coaching on multiple allies.

Coaching: Mew Move Effect and Cooldown

Reserve Mystical Mirage for Team Fights

Pokemon UNITE - Mew Using Mystical Mirage in Team Fight

Mystical Mirage is a great utility move perfect for team clashes. Activating it will make you and each ally within the area invisible, essentially making the team untargettable for a short time. This will make securing objectives much harder for the enemy team as they won't be able to line their shots properly.

Mystical Mirage: Mew UNITE Move Effect and Cooldown

Does Not Block Area of Effect Damage

Keep in mind that Mystical Mirage does not protect you against AoE damage from the enemy team. If enemy moves like Fanciful Fireworks or Sand Stream are in effect when you activate Mystical Mirage, you and your team will still take damage.

Synchronize Reduces Unite Move Cooldown

Each time you activate Synchronize, Mystical Mirage's cooldown will be reduced by 7 seconds. This means that you can keep your Unite Move online if you manage to take advantage of Synchronize's cooldown reduction mechanic. A good strategy is to keep activating Move Reset every time it is available. Since you are not forced to pick other moves in the pool, you can still re-select the moves you are currently running and only take advantage of the cooldown reduction!

Use it to reposition Mew away from the target. At this point, your boosted attack will be full, which you will use to deal heavy damage. After that, immediately use Move Reset to change your damaging move. Pick Solar Beam to deal massive amounts of damage from afar, or pickSurf if you want to disable the target.

Hard Counter by Mobility and Burst Damage

Pokemon that can that can get close and beatdown Mew quick enough before it takes advantage of Move reset will have a high chance of winning the brawl against the Pokemon. Although Mew has an escape tool via Agility, the move's short range does not give the Pokemon a clean getaway move. Moreover, having a dash move can help Pokemon dodge moves and attacks, allowing them to catch up to Mew when it tries to escape.

How to Beat
• Much like Mew, these Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can knock out Mew quickly. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Mew fast. Winning against these Pokemon is all a matter of striking first.
• When far, use Solar Beam and Light Screen to burst them down or at least chip away their HP.
• When at medium range, use Electro Ball to burst them down or at least chip away their HP, then use Agility to dodge their moves.
• When very near them, use Surf and Light Screen to push them towards allies or a wall and control their movement.
• Alternatively, use Mystical Mirage to approach them safely and set up Solar Beam, Electro Ball, or Surf.

Disrupt or Kite Them

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 Mew's damage. However, they have to come close first to attack, making them susceptible to getting kited.
• Use Solar Beam and Light Screen or Electro Ball and Agility, and Boosted Attacks to kite them from range.
• Use Surf and Light Screen to disrupt their attacks or combos.
• Use Mystical Mirage to escape and reposition when they get too close.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon

How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it hard for Mew to take them out alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Mew.
• Use Solar Beam or Electro Ball to deplete their HP.
• Use Surf to control their movement and prevent them from escaping.

Easy Matchups for Mew

Easy matchups for Mew are Pokemon that are susceptible to any of Mew's moves. In this case, Move reset won't be a significant factor compared to even matchups.
