Foul Play Build Explanation

This build utilizes Foul Play's Boosted Attack reset mechanic, allowing Umbreon to deal damage and recover HP, and the move's dash to set up Snarl.

  • Muscle Band improves Umbreon's attacks through increased damage and faster attack speed.
  • Razor Claw adds more damage to Umbreon's attacks whenever it uses a move, particularly Foul Play.
  • Focus Band gives Umbreon durability and another source of healing.
  • However, Attack Weight can be a replacement for Razor Claw, giving Umbreon more damage when fully stacked, specifically for its moves.
  • Eject Button gives Umbreon more mobility on top of Foul Play.
  • Howeverer, X Speed can work just as well for the build.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 4 White Emblems additional HP.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or HP to maximize Umbreon's attack damage and healing.
  • Sp. Atk. can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build utilizes Foul Play's Boosted Attack reset mechanic, equipping items that will maximize the move and Umbreon's Boosted Attack damage is the ideal item combination. Focus Band is a staple item for the build, leaving only two item slots for consideration.

As the results show, Muscle Band and Razor Claw will yield the best outcome for the build. Although the item combination did not produce the best results for Foul Play and Snarl, it did score the highest damage for Boosted Attacks, which is central to Umbreon's gameplay.

As for alternatives, replacing Razor Claw with Attack Weight would be the best choice. The item combination generated the second best results for all tests. However, it does require Umbreon to fully stack Attack Weight first.


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

Mean Look Build Explanation

This build exploits Mean Look's Boosted Attack reset and increased damage effects, allowing Umbreon to deal damage and recover HP with each attack. Snarl enables Umbreon to weaken its opponents' damage and slow them.

  • Muscle Band improves Umbreon's attacks through increased damage and faster attack speed.
  • Weakness Policy allows Umbreon to further boost its damage as it takes hits, and it synergizes well with its Boosted Attacks.
  • Focus Band gives Umbreon durability and another source of healing.
  • However, Attack Weight can be a replacement for Weakness Policy, giving Umbreon more damage when fully stacked.
  • X Speed gives Umbreon some mobility to work with.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 4 White Emblems additional HP.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or HP to maximize Umbreon's attack damage and healing.

Since the build is centered on Umbreon's Boosted Attacks whilst on Mean Look's black zone, equipping items that will improve the Pokemon's attack damage consistently is the ideal item combination. Focus Band will be a staple item for the build, giving the Pokemon more durability and another source of sustain.

As the results show, Muscle Band and a Weakness Policy will yield the best result for Umbreon. Although it did not produce the highest damage output, the item combination best suits the build.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Foul Play ImageFoul Play Foul Play gives Umbreon mobility, damage, and crowd control. It also works particularly well against Attack stat Pokemon.
Snarl ImageSnarl Snarl allows Umbreon to weaken the opponents' damage and slow them. It's also a nifty disabling move.

This moveset gives Umbreon versatility and more offense. Foul Play functions not only as a dash but also a damage and crowd control tool, giving Umbreon more room for making creative plays. Meanwhile, Snarl is an area-of-effect disable and debuff, allowing Umbreon to stun and weaken its opponents simultaneously.

Mean Look and Foul Play both provide Umbreon means of playing around its Boosted Attacks. The primary difference between them is that Mean Look gives that tool much earlier while Foul Play only becomes that tool once it's upgraded at level 10. However, Foul Play does give Umbreon incredible versatility, allowing it to make far more creative plays than Mean Look.

Snarl and Wish are two different utility moves. Snarl is an offensive utility move since it's a crowd control move. Selecting this move compels Umbreon to play more aggressive. On the other hand, Wish is a defensive utility move since it reduces incoming damage and heals the target. Picking this move allows Umbreon to play more as a support, although, it can definitely be used offensively.

How to Play Umbreon

Jump to Section

Utilize Passives and Abilities to Farm Wild Pokemon

Pokemon UNITE - Umbreon Starter Moves

Anticipation lets Eevee ignore hindrances, so utilize this passive ability in order to farm Wild Pokemon and reach level 3 quickly. Prioritize learning Fake Tears to deal AoE damage, gain a shield, and lower down enemy Pokemon defenses. Learn Swift later on as it only focuses on marking a single target despite providing Umbreon with an Attack Speed boost.

Once Eevee evolves into Umbreon, Anticipation becomes Inner Focus. This upgraded passive ability lets Umbreon ignore hindrances while also increasing its Defense and Sp. Def., which makes it perfect for defending goal zones and securing objectives that spawn on the Top and Bottom lanes.

Capitalize on Umbreon's Boosted Attacks

Despite its nature being a Defender Pokemon, Umbreon benefits greatly from Boosted Attacks. It is also worth noting that dealing boosted attacks heal Umbreon, so capitalize on it and utilize abilities like Mean Look to turn Standard Attacks into boosted ones, and partner it with held items like Attack Weight to deal more damage.

Mark Targets with Swift

Swift is Eevee's damaging move that marks an enemy nearby, and lets Eevee deal boosted attack damage quicker when it's near the marked target.

This move is best partnered with Standard Attacks due to the next hit becoming boosted, and Fake Tears being activated first since it grants a shield and decreases the Def and Sp. Def of any enemy and Wild Pokemon that gets hit.

Utilize this move to reach level 4 quickly, evolve into Umbreon, and learn an upgraded damaging move.

Deal AoE Damage with Fake Tears

Fake Tears is Eevee's AoE damaging move that decreases the opponent's Defense and Sp. Defense while also granting a shield to Eevee.

It's best to activate this move first before Swift to get a shield, then continuously farm Wild Pokemon without worrying about getting damaged a lot.

Utilize this move to reach level 4 quickly, evolve into Umbreon, and learn an upgraded damaging move.

Choose Upgraded Damaging Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Updgraded Damaging Moves

Upon reaching level 4, Umbreon can learn Mean Look or Foul Play as its upgraded moves.

Mean Look lets Umbreon pin an enemy inside a dark zone that turns Umbreon's standard attacks into boosted attacks while it's active.
Foul Play is a dash move that provides mobility for Umbreon. This move is great for chasing down isolated targets, or enemy Pokemon that are trying to escape.

Choose the moveset that best synergizes with the held items that Umbreon's equipped with in order to get the best outcome.

Pin Down an Enemy with Mean Look

Mean Look turns Umbreon's standard attacks into boosted attacks with every hit while Umbreon's inside the zone.

Take note that only Standard Attacks are affected while Mean Look is active, so it synergizes well with held items that can boost Attack Speed like Rapid-Fire Scarf, or Scope Lens for more critical hits.

Charge at Enemies with Foul Play

Foul Play is a dash move that decreases enemy movement speed when it hits. When upgraded, it can also shove enemies that get hit which makes it a great move for dodging, chasing down isolated targets, and also interrupting setups.

This move requires Umbreon to be aggressively dealing damage and benefits from held items that boosts damage output like Attack Weight.

This move also helps Umbreon get closer to the enemy goal zones faster, so utilize this move to deal damage, score goals, and chase down squishy enemies.

Choose Support Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Umbreon Support Moves

Upon reaching level 6, Umbreon will be able to choose Wish or Snarl as its support move upgrades.

Wish is a recovery move and is best used on allies that have little to no sustain or are very squishy and easily overwhelmed, while Snarl deals constant damage while applying debuffs and granting a shield to Umbreon.

Choose the move that you think is best for Umbreon based on your playstyle and equipped held items in order to utilize their effects!

Support Allies with Wish

Wish lets Umbreon support an ally by providing them with damage reduction first, then becomes a heal after a set amount of time. This move is best used on allies that have little to no sustain or are very squishy and easily overwhelmed.

Ignore Hindrances with Snarl

Snarl deals consecutive damage while applying Attack, Sp. Attack, and movement speed debuffs while also granting a shield to Umbreon.

Time your usage of Snarl in order to counter hindrance effects like stuns or disables from enemy Pokemon to throw them off, and get the chance to deal combos and boosted attacks to overwhelm targets.

Unite Move Strategy

Moonlight Prance is Umbreon's Unite Move that lets it absorb enemy shields and deal damage while also disabling enemy Pokemon that get hit. Save this move for teamfights and Rayquaza spawn to interrupt enemies from securing the objective. Umbreon also gains a shield that recovers HP outside of combat.

Take note that Rayquaza's shields will not be affected and cannot be absorbed by this Unite Move, so aim to secure Rayquaza and get the shields before the opposing team does!

Hard Counter with Disables

Like its fellow Defenders, Umbreon has innately high durability and is very dependent on its shields and Boosted Attacks. Since Umbreon needs to get close to its opponents to use Snarl or utilize Foul Play and Boosted Attacks constantly, Pokemon that can stun or disable it with ranged attacks will prevent it from performing its gameplay effectively.
