Mew Takes the MVP!

Pokemon UNITE - Season 7 MVP

Mew retains its crown and is Season 7's MVP! Despite receving three (3) consecutive nerfs throughout the season, Mew remained as the top pick in Ranked Matches. This shows the Pokemon's value and impact in the game. Its ability to change its moves freely in a match remains as something only the Pokemon can offer.

Most Improved Pokemon (MIP)

Venusaur Takes the MIP!

Pokemon UNITE - Ranked Season 7 Recap MIP

Venusaur is back with a vengeance, taking Season 7's MIP! Being part of the original Pokemon UNITE roster when the game first launched, Venusaur was one of the go-to pick for most players not just in casual gaming but also in tournaments. However, as new Pokemon arrived and major changes to the game were made, such as the introduction of the new Theia Sky Ruins map as the default map, the veteran Pokemon was gradually pushed back from the spotlight and eventually out of the meta. It got its well-dserved resurgence when it received major buffs in the Update, catapulting the Pokemon into the spotlight once again with its newly-found strength.

Master Rank Top Pick List

Best Pokemon Per Role

Best Attacker: Mew

Pokemon UNITE - Season 7 Best Attacker

Game8 chose Mew as Season 7's best Attacker. Mew remained relevant in the meta despite receiving a crippling reduction to its damage output, which is the core trait of Attackers. This shows just how valuable and effective the Pokemon is in a match. It might not deal as much damage as before, but its ability to adapt to any situation via Reset and its early power spike are what gives Mew that extra edge over other Attackers.

Best Speedster: Dodrio

Pokemon UNITE - Season 7 Best Speedster

Game8 chose Dodrio as Season 7's best Speedster. Dodrio found a niche as a Pokemon that excels at constantly roaming the map and scoring points, which strays from the Speedster archetype. Although it can still deal considerable damage like other Speedsters, its high movement speed via Run Away is what enables it to carry out its niche gameplay effectively and makes it a true Speedster by definition. Moreover, its score-oriented gameplay proved to be a highly effective way to win games in the current meta.

Best All-Rounder: Tsareena

Pokemon UNITE - Season 2 Best All-Rounder

Game8 chose Tsareena as Season 7's best All-Rounder. Tsareena remains as a staple All-Rounder pick in the current meta due to its damage potential and sustainability, particularly once it reaches level 6. It's known for destroying the entire enemy team by itself, making it one of the best late-game Pokemon that can easily take over games and carry its team to victory. It is currently unmatched in the All-Rounder role since Aegislash was nerfed and despite Azumarill's major buffs.

Best Defender: Mamoswine

Pokemon UNITE - Season 7 Best Defender

Game8 chose Mamoswine as Season 7's best Defender. It's definitely a surprise that Mamoswine entered one of the top picks in Ranked, since it's not often that a Defender makes it in that regard, and in the instance that a Defender does make it, the position is usually held by Snorlax. Nonetheless, the Pokemon's high durability via Thick Fat allows it to soak more damage than other Defenders, and its arsenal of crowd control moves makes it valuable in teamfights. Overall, Mamoswine is well-deserving of the title and is a solid Defender.

Best Supporter: Mr. Mime

Pokemon UNITE - Season 7 Best Supporter

Game8 chose Mr. Mime as Season 7's best Supporter. Despite receving nerfs three (3) consecutive times, Mr. Mime never felt weaker by any stretch of the imagination. The Pokemon's efficiency in battles remained as robust as before with any move combination, which explains its consistent high pick rate in Ranked. Mr. Mime is more versitile compared to other Supporters since its damage is on par with Attackers while its durability and sustainability is in line with Defenders, giving it more value as pick to the team.

Game8 has chosen these two as Season 7's best holowears. The effects the holowears have are definitely satisfying to watch and experience. They give their respective Pokemon a different vibe that may be far from the Pokemon's original look but somehow still works for them.

Best Newcomer: Sableye

Pokemon UNITE - Ranked Season 7 Best Newcomer.png

Game8 chose Sableye as Season 7's best Newcomer. Sableye has been dominating games since its release despite being last Pokemon released for the season. It's the first Pokemon that utilizes stealth and speed to create plays that no other Pokemon can do. Its moves are also noteworthy as they have unique and game-changing effects, such as Confuse Ray's effect that forces opponents to attack its allies, which can turn the enemy's carry against its team. Moreover, Sableye's gameplay is being compared to Dodrio in that both puts more emphasis in scoring points rather than fighting. In fact, Sableye just might replace Dodrio as the go-to score-oriented Pokemon pick. Needless to say, this Newcomer has a bright future ahead.

Notable Meta Changes

Scoring Meta

Although the meta is still largely centered on winning teamfights and securing objectives, with the addition of Dodrio and Sableye to the roster, the meta is slowly shifting to or at least reconsidering score-oriented Pokemon. This is evident in Ranked games since Dodrio is the third most picked Pokemon while Sableye is getting a lot of attention since its release. It's only a matter of time before one or both Pokemon will have their place in the meta and redifine it entirely.
