Tank-Support Builds Explanation

This is a versatile build that turns Umbreon into a tank-support hybrid. Mean Look allows Umbreon to set up its allies' moves during fights while Wish provides Umbreon a way to heal itself or its allies. However, any move combination can work for the build.

  • Exp. Share allows Umbreon and its lane partner to level up faster in the early game. It also provides a decent amount of HP and movement speed.
  • Resonant Guard enables Umbreon to generate shields for itself and its allies whenever it deals damage to opponents, which suits the Pokemon's frontline gameplay.
  • Focus Band improves Umbreon's durability and survivability through increased defenses.
  • Buddy Barrier or Aeos Cookie can be a replacement for Focus Band as a tank item.
  • Weakness Policy can also be a replacement for Focus Band for a more offensive build, particularly when running Foul Play and/or Snarl.
  • Eject Button gives Umbreon a repositioning tool to set up its moves.
  • X Speed can also work for the build to give Umbreon a general mobility tool.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or HP to maximize Umbreon's attack damage and healing.
  • Sp. Atk. and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

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.
  • Rapid-Fire Scarf provides Umbreon with a massive attack speed boost, allowing the Pokemon to perform more Boosted Attacks during Mean Look.
  • 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.
  • Eject Button gives Umbreon some mobility to work with and a way to set up Mean Look and Snarl.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • 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.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band and Rapid-Fire Scarf will be the best for the build. Although it did not produce the highest damage output, the attack speed from both items and the bonus damage from Muscle Band better suits the build's gameplay.

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.

  • Attack Weight gives Umbreon a large amount of Attack stat, improving its overall damage output.
  • Weakness Policy further increases Umbreon's damage whenever it gets attacked. It also gives a decent amount of Attack and HP stats.
  • Focus Band gives Umbreon durability and another source of healing.
  • Eject Button gives Umbreon more mobility on top of Foul Play.
  • 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 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • 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 is centered on Foul Play, 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, Weakness Policy and Attack Weight will yield the best outcome for the build. Although the item combination did not produce the best results for the Boosted Attack damage, it did score the highest damage for Foul Play and Snarl.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Mean Look ImageMean Look Mean Look gives Umbreon a powerful disabling move that also functions as a damage tool.
Wish ImageWish Wish allows Umbreon to heal itself or its allies during fights, turning the Pokemon into a viable support.

This moveset gives Umbreon versatility. Mean Look allows Umbreon to single out targets by trapping it, which is a useful tool during teamfights. It also allows Umbreon to trade blows with opponents thanks to its Boosted Attack reset mechanic. Meanwhile, Wish allows Umbreon to heal itself or its allies during fights, making the Pokemon into a semi-support.

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

Focus on Reaching Level 4 at the Start

Just like other Eeveelutions, Umbreon doesn't do much at the start and only starts to become a threat at level 4 where it gets its first primary move. WIth that, it's best to focus on reach level 4 as fast as possible at the start of the game, so Umbreon can make an impact early on.

Utilize Swift's Boosted Attack Reset Effect

Apart from dealing damage to targets, Swift makes all of Umbreon's attacks into Boosted Attacks whenever it hits opponents that are marked by the move. This effect is extremely useful in securing wild Pokemon faster and winning early fights.

Weaken Opponents and Shield Umbreon with Fake Tears

Fake Tears is both an offensive and defensive move. It decreases the Defense and Sp. Def. of opponents hit by the move while also granting Umbreon a shield. Make sure to use Fake Tears when fighting opponents to give Umbreon an advantage.

Note:
Fake Tears doesn't need to hit opponents for it to grant Umbreon a shield. It always grants a shield when the move is used.

Fake Tears: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Fight on the Frontlines

Since Umbreon is a Defender, it should always be on the frontlines during fights to tank for its team regardless of what moveset it learns.

Capitalize on Inner Focus

When Umbreon is inflicted with any hindrances, Inner Focus negates that effect, and makes the Pokemon become immune to hindrances and increases its Defense and Sp. Def. stats for a short time. This gives Umbreon a powerful defensive tool when fighting in the frontlines, so make sure to capitalize on its effects.

Inner Focus: Umbreon Passive Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Boosted Attacks

Umbreon's Boosted Atacks play a central role in the Pokemon's gameplay as it deals increased damage and heals the Pokemon. Be sure to utilize its Boosted Attacks during fights to help Umbreon survive longer and tank more damage for its allies.

Remember that attacking opponents trapped inside Mean Look's area and using Foul Play once it's upgraded gives Umbreon Boosted Attacks.

Note:
The healing effect strengthens the lower the Pokemon's HP becomes.

Be Versatile with Mean Look

Mean Look is a multi-purpose disabling move. It can be used to isolate a target and indicate to allies to focus their attention on the trapped target.

It can also be used to set up allies' moves and make it easier for them to hit their opponents.

Moreover, it can be used to trade blows with an opponents thanks to its Boosted Attack reset mechanic.

Mean Look: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Shove Enemies with Foul Play

Although Foul Play is a dash move, it can slow opponents and shove them towards a direction, making it also a crowd control move. Use it to prevent opponents from reaching the backlines and go for Umbreon's less durable allies.

Tip:
Aim for Attack-type Pokemon since Foul Play deals increased damage based on the Attack stat of the opponent that was initially hit.

Foul Play: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Snarl's Effects

Apart from dealing damage, Snarl also decreases the opponents' Attack, Sp. Atk., and movement speed, and stuns them all while granting Umbreon a shield. Be sure to hit as many opponents as possible with Snarl to weaken and stun them during fights, giving Umbreon's team a damage advantage.

Snarl: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Survive Longer or Support Allies with Wish

Wish heals a single target for a huge amount after a few seconds. Use it to either allow Umbreon to survive longer during fights or heal allies who are in a dire situation.

Note:
If there is no target other than Umbreon, using the move will target the Pokemon by default. However, if there are allies nearby, the move will lock on them automatically.

Wish: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Steal Shields with Moonlight Prance

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.

Note:
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.

Moonlight Prance: Umbreon Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Its Passive Effect

Moonlight Prance also has a passive effect that enables Umbreon to continually recover HP when it's out of combat. This effect allows Umbreon to not have to return to base to heal up and instead just to remain out of combat for given time. However, returning to base to heal is still a must in most cases, so Umbreon should not depend too much on the healing effect.

Hard Counter with Disables or Burst Damage

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.

Alternatively, Pokemon that can deal high enough damage can shred through Umbreon's durability.

Cinderace Image Dragapult Image Espeon Image Gardevoir Image Glaceon Image Greninja Image Mega Mewtwo Y Image Mew Image Pikachu Image Sylveon Image Venusaur Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can be dangerous for Umbreon. However, they can be defeated once Umbreon gets close to them.
• Quickly close the gap using Foul Play, then follow up with Snarl to stun them, or use Wish to heal any damage they deal.
• Alternatively, just use Mean Look to trap them, then beat them down with Boosted Attacks.
• As a last resort, use Moonlight Prance to finish them off.

Keep Using Boosted Attacks

All-Rounders
Azumarill Image Buzzwole Image Ceruledge Image Charizard Image Garchomp Image Machamp Image Mega Mewtwo X Image Scizor Image Tsareena Image Tyranitar Image Urshifu Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or moves to deal damage. They are also durable enough to tank Umbreon damage. However, they do need to go toe to toe with Umbreon to defeat it, putting them in range of the Pokemon's moves.
• Keep using Boosted Attacks to heal Umbreon with the help from Mean Look or Foul Play.
• Use Snarl to disable them and deal additional damage, or use Wise for additional healing.

my preferred umbreon build is foul play snarl with drain crown, attack weight, and muscle band. battle item is goal getter. the other one is mean look wish, with drain crown, shell bell and weakness policy. battle item is X speed. the first one is best for solo queue and the seconded one for ranked.
