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 a large amount of Sp. Atk. for maximum damage thanks to its percentage-based stat boost. Choice Specs adds more Sp. Atk. and increases Mew's move damage by a set amount when they hit. Slick Spoon offers Sp. Atk. and HP suitable for a fragile attacker. It also gives Mew Sp. Def. penetration, improving its damage output even more.

X Attack gives Mew even more firepower for maximum damage. Alternatively, Eject Button can also work fine with the build, giving Mew a quick and easy way to disengage from hectic fights.

The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for an extra Sp. Attack boost and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to maximize Mew's damage output. Attack and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Moveset Combinations

Offense Movesets + Utility Movesets

This combination of moves 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.

This build gives Mew the durability it needs to continuously use Surf to displace and stun opponents. It also gives Mew enough protection from getting knocked out easily. Moreover, the increase in survivability can help set up Mystical Mirage for crucial fights.

Slick Spoon gives a nice balance of offense and defense through increased Sp. Atk. and HP, and its Sp. Def. penetration effect. Focus Band is Mew's main durability and survivability item, increasing its defenses and providing a fail-safe tool. Buddy Barrier gives a hefty amount of HP to beef up Mew as it uses Surf while also acting as a teamfight tool whe it activates Mystical Mirage.

Eject Button gives Mew a way to disengage from opponents when it dives into the fray. It is also a quick repositioning tool that can get the Pokemon to the middle of a battle for activating Mystical Mirage.

The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk or HP to balance out Mew's damage and defense. Attack and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Moveset Combinations

Offense Movesets + Utility Movesets

This combination focuses on sustaining Mew and your teammates with extra defenses and hindrance resistance. The extra protection can help Mew to navigate the battlefield and set up fights with Mystical Mirage. You can use Surf to disable opponents and reposition Mew around the battlefield. All while keeping the defense engine going with Coaching. For general damage, you can use either Solar Beam or Electro Ball first to kite targets from afar before charging in with Surf.

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. Rescue Hood enhances Mew's durability through increased defenses and improves Coaching's shielding effect. 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.

X Speed gives Mew more mobility for maneuvering around the battlefield and keeping up with its allies. It also protects the Pokemon from enemy slows.

Moveset Combinations

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.

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!

Hard Counter by Closing the Gap

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 of your own can help you dodge moves attacks and catch up to it when it tries to escape.

Best Counters

Lucario ImageLucario Rating: ★★★★★
• Can quickly get close to Mew and dodge its attacks with Extreme Speed or Power-Up Punch.

• Use Agility or Coaching to dodge their crowd control moves and outmaneuver them.

Avoid or Disrupt Their Combos

Combo-Heavy Pokemon

How to Beat
• These Pokemon deal heavy damage through combos, so prevent their setups by using Light Screen.
• Stay at the backlines and use Solar Beam to discourage them from approaching you.
• Use Agility or Coaching in order to dodge their initial setup and avoid 1v1 fights as much as possible.

Easy Matchups for Mew

When fighting these Pokemon, Move Reset is not that important compared to fighting Mew's couters and eve matchups. You can just stick to moves that you are comfortable with and find that they are sufficient for staving off these Pokemon.

Utilize the Ranged Advantage

Pokemon that Rely Melee Attacks
Charizard Image Garchomp Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon can rip their targets to shreds once they are close enough. Fortunately, their mobility moves are not that effective and can be taken advantage of. Walling them off with a Light Screen or getting ground with Agility will make it harder for them to get in position.
• For Charizard, cripple its progression by knocking it out and stealing its farm in the early game. Once it reaches level 9, you only need to avoid getting caught by Seismic Slam to win against it.
• The combination of slow and quick cooldown from Electro Ball will be enough to pressure them constantly before they can reach Mew.

Outclass with Moves

Attacker Pokemon
Alolan Ninetales Image Cramorant Image Decidueye Image Delphox Image Dragapult Image Duraludon Image Venusaur Image
How to Beat
• Thanks to Mew's Move Reset ability, it is able to get the upper hand towards these Pokemon by switching its playstyle and exploit their weaknesses. When fighting long- ranged Attackers like Decidueye or Duraludon, it is best to use Agility to reposition and evade their attacks while countering with a Solar Beam.
• When fighting them during a clash, negate some of their AoE damage applying shields to your whole team with Coaching.
• Take advantage of Electro Ball's low cooldown to pressure them out of position.

Evade Their Set Ups

Durable Pokemon with Disables
Crustle Image Slowbro Image
How to Beat
•These Pokemon are great at disabling single targets. Whil they are able to shut Mew down for a moment, their effectiveness rely on how their teammates captilize on them. You can counter their disables by getting out of their range by dashing with Agility or, when an ally is near, teleport to an ally with Coaching
• When you are at long range, pressure them with Solar Beam attacks.

Burst Them Down Quickly

Pokemon that Always Sticks with an Ally
Clefable Image Comfey Image Eldegoss Image Hoopa Image Sableye Image
How to Beat
• Because Supporter Pokemon rely on their teammates to become effective, it is best to focus on taking out these Pokemon first to cut off the opposing team's support system. since they will mostly likely position at the back lines of the fight, you can snipe them down with Solar Beam
