Overheat Build Explantion

Build Explanation
This build is centered on stunning enemies using Imprison, then bombarding them with Overheat, maximizing the move's damage output. However, Poltergeist can also work, slowing and damaging enemies in an area.
· Choice Specs gives Chandelure a decent amount of Sp. Atk. stat and increases the Pokemon's minimum move damage.
· Wise Glasses provides Chandelure with more Sp. Atk. thanks to its percentage bonus.
· Slick Spoon works nicely with Chandelure's Infiltrator ability. It also supplies HP and more Sp. Atk.
· However, Shell Bell can be a replacement for Slick Spoon, giving Chandelure a recovery tool.
· Energy Amplifier is also a good replacement for Slick Spoon, giving Chandelure more firepower when it activates Ignite Midnight.
· X Speed gives Chandelure the mobility it needs while using Overheat.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for more damage and 4 White Emblems additional HP.
· Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. to maximize Chandelure's damage output.
· Attack and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Overheat, equipping items that maximizes Chandelure's damage output is the ideal item combination.

As the results show, Choice Specs, Wise Glasses, and Slick Spoon will yield the best results considering Chandelure's limitations. The item combination does not require extra tasks to maximize the Pokemon's damage output.

Although the item combinations that have Sp. Atk. Specs included tend to produce the best results, the item isn't ideal for Chandelure since it will be too difficult for the Pokemon to fully stack it.

For alternatives, replacing Slick Spoon with Shell Bell would be the ideal choice. The item combination's results are just slightly lower than the recommended build, but it gives Chandelure a recovery tool.

On the other hand, for a more damage-oriented alternative, replacing Slick Spoon with Energy Amplifier would be the best option. The item combination produced the the second best results for Flamethrower and Ignite Midnight. However, this does require Chandelure to activate its unite move first.


These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Overheat ImageOverheat Overheat provides a more spammable means of damage during teamfights. Although how it works puts Chandelure in a potentially dangerous position, the Pokemon can still maneuver around when using the move.
Imprison ImageImprison Imprison not only stuns targets but also prevents them from using their moves. It also has a long range that is useful for chasing targets.

This moveset performs much better than its counterpart. Overheat has a significantly higher damage potential than Flamethrower, assuming all projectiles hit. Imprison's move-disabling effect and long range makes it incredibly effective during teamfights. It also provides better protection for Chandelure against aggressive opponents.

Choosing between Overheat and Flamethrower depends on whether a player prefers more damage or longer range. For more damge, Overheat would be the best option. For better range, Flamethrower is the ideal choice.

On the other hand, although Poltergeist and Imprison essentially have the same purpose, they have additional things to offer. Choose Poltergeist to deal additional damage on top of a slow. Choose Imprison for a stronger disabling move.

How to Play Chandelure

Jump to Section

Utilize Infiltrator to Knock Out Targets Quickly

Pokemon UNITE - Infiltrator Stacks

When active, Infiltrator allows Chandelure to partially ignore its enemy's Sp. Defense. Utilize this ability by equipping held items like Slick Spoon to boost its effectiveness.

Upon reaching level 5, Chandelure can learn either Flamethrower or Overheat as its upgraded damaging move and will be able to assist in pushing lanes from a safe distance.

Slow Down and Burn Enemies with Ember

Chandelure can squeeze out damage early game with Ember. This move allows Chandelure to burn an enemy it hits while also slowing them down. Farm Wild Pokemon quickly and burn enemy Pokemon that tries to score in the allied goal during early game.

Mark Enemies with Night Shade

Night Shade lets Chandelure mark enemies and deal boosted attack damage with Ember and standard attacks. Utilize this move to farm Wild Pokemon and get to level 5 quickly by marking enemies first, then setting them in a burned state with Ember.

Secure Objectives with Upgraded Damaging Moves

Pokemon UNITE - Upgraded Damaging Moves

Chandelure will be able to learn either Flamethrower or Overheat upon reaching level 5.

Choosing Overheat turns Chandelure into an aggressive AoE damage dealer that's perfect for diving in teamfights.
Choosing Flamethrower lets chandelure deal the most damage by staying as far away as possible and hit enemies with the explosion that goes out at maximum distance.

Both moves lets Chandelure deal huge amounts of damage, so make sure to choose the move that best suits your chosen build.

Burn Enemies with Flamethrower

Flamethrower is a powerful damaging move that lets Chandelure deal damage by firing a straight line of flames. This can be aimed anywhere, and targets that get hit will be afflicted with a Burn debuff.

Utilizing the damage dealt by this move requires proper positioning, since it deals the most damage by hitting enemy Pokemon with the follow-up explosion. An enemy that gets hit by Flamethrower's follow-up explosion gets increased damage, and grants Chandelure a temporary attack boost.

Deal Consecutive AoE Damage with Overheat

Overheat allows Chandelure to deal AoE damage consecutively at designated directions for 4 times. Using this move turns Chandelure into an aggressive and bursty ranged attacker at the cost of being unable to use standard attacks temporarily afterwards. This move is great for interrupting enemy setups or ambushing isolated enemies.

This move also synergizes well with Poltergeist or Imprison as both moves hinders enemy movement. Utilize this move to quickly secure objectives on the top and bottom lane.

Choose Hindrance Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Upgraded Hindrance Moves

While securing objectives is part of an Attacker's resposibility, Chandelure will learn moves that hinders enemy movement and abilities by level 7.

Choose Poltergeist to summon a zone with floating furnitures and trap enemies inside. This move is useful for chasing down isolated targets and opening up ganking opportunites for allies.
Choose Imprison to temporarily disable enemies from using their abilities while slowing them down. Use this move to throw off enemy Pokemon that requires positioning or timing their moves.

Both moves have their own advantages, so choose the one that synergizes best with your chosen build.

Set Up Traps with Poltergeist

Chandelure is able to trap and slow its enemies down by using Potergeist. This move allows Chandelure to enclose targets in a zone filled with floating furnitures. It requires a bit of positioning and setting up, but this is a good support move that can help your allies escape safely from dangerous situations, or hinder enemy movement and open up ganking opportunities for your teammates.

Disable Enemy Abilities with Imprison

Imprison allows Chandelure to completely disable its opponents by releasing a dark zone in front of it. The first enemy to get hit is unable to use any of its abilities and can only deal standard attacks. Overwhelm melee-ranged enemies with this move and help your allies push lanes!

Unite Move Strategy

Chandelure's Unite Move Ignite Midnight dims its enemies' vision on the first activation, then fires a beam towards a designated direction. This move is best used when securing objectives, or during Rayquaza spawn teamfights. Hinder enemies from their setups, position Chandelure at an area where it can hit enemies the most.

Chandelure Progression and Leveling Guide

Top or Bottom Lane Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 6 • Secure many Wild Pokemon and get to level 5 as fast as possible. Get quick take downs with Ember and Night Shade.
• Once Chandelure learns either Flamethrower or Overheat, focus on using them to farm Wild Pokemon camps to reach higher levels.
7 - 9 • Upon reaching level 7, Chandelure gets to learn either Poltergeist or Imprison that lets it gain the ability to cast a debuff on its enemies. By this level, Chandelure can assist from the backlines and slow or stun enemies from afar.
• Annoy enemies by ruining their setups with Poltergeist or Imprison's slow or disabling effects and create openings for the team to gank and dominate a lane.
10+ • Upon reaching level 10, Chandelure can face off against even matchups thanks to its UNITE Move. Don't dive into teamfights, and only use Ignite Midnight from a safe distance once the teamfight has already been initiated.
• Help allies secure Regieleki at the top lane. Otherwise, assist in securing the Regi-trio at the bottom lane until Rayquaza spawns. Utilize Chandelure's movesets and secure Rayquaza in order to get a boosted score and shields.

Jungle Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 5 • Clear the first wave of jungle camps and level up to level 5. Utilize combos by using both Ember and Night Shade to quickly take down wild Pokemon. Learn either Flamethrower or Overheat upon reaching level 5.
• Secure the Altaria and Swablus that spawn in the middle of the lane.
• After defeating enemy Pokemon gurading the goal zone, score your accumulated Aeos Energy.
6 - 9 • Clear the second wave of jungle camps to reach level 7 and get both of your chosen moveset.
• Transition back to a lane and help secure its respective objective.
• Seek out and knock down easy targets like enemy Attackers or Supporters.
10+ • Utilize Ignite Midnight's temporary blind debuff to throw off enemy Pokemon from their setups and once Chandelure is in a good position, activate it again to unleash a beam that deals consecutive damage to enemies it hits.
• During the final stretch, focus on knocking down opponents that approach instead of Rayquaza.

Even Matchups for Chandelure

When facing off against even matchups, always maintain your distance from opponents. Chandelure relies on its high damage output to stave off and, possibly, knock down opponents before they can attack. Moreover, Chandelure lacks mobility moves, so try to make use of your disables, burns, and slows to even the playing field.

Pokemon with Ranged Attacks
Alolan Ninetales Image Cramorant Image Decidueye Image Dragapult Image Delphox Image Glaceon Image Inteleon Image Venusaur Image
How to Beat

Pokemon with Low Sp. Defense
Cinderace Image Duraludon Image Espeon Image Mew Image Pikachu Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are equipped with bursty and spammable attacks that can threaten Chandelure with their burst damage. Infiltrator allows Chandelure to partially ignore enemy Pokemon's Sp. Defense, so use that to your advantage. Overheat and Imprison are the suggested moves to fight these Pokemon, especially when they get close.

Fight Through the Defenses

Pokemon with High Sp. Defense
Blissey Image Sylveon Image Wigglytuff Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon either have high innate Sp. Defense stat or an ability to raise their Sp. Defense stat. Bursting them down will be difficult, but still doable. Take advantage of Overheat's cooldown reduction mechanic to deal damage to them in quick succession.

Disable First

Pokemon with Crowd Control
Goodra Image Lapras Image Mamoswine Image Slowbro Image Trevenant Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have high HP and can disable Chandelure if they are able to use their moves.
• If they are to hard to burst down, you can pair with an Attacker or All-Rounder and utilize Imprison's disable to gain the upper hand.

Play Defensively

Pokemon wiht Burst Damage
Dragonite Image Machamp Image Zeraora Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have decent Offense and Defense, but they have burst damage that can knock Chandelure down in seconds. Make sure to steer clear from the Pokemon until you get your move upgrades.
• If they're charging towards you, trap them with Poltergeist to slow them down or disable them with Imprison.

Easy Matchups for Chandelure

Chandelure can deal massive amounts of long-ranged damage while being able to disrupt them with stuns and slows.

Pin Down with Disables

Pokemon with Melee Attacks
Charizard Image Crustle Image Garchomp Image
How to Beat
• Though these Pokemon can surely take on Chandelure, their melee attacks and moves can be abused by pinning them down with disables and slows. a combination of Imprison and Overheat will be enough to keep them from getting a clear shot of Chandelure.
