Pick Rate: 11%
These are the top three (3) most used Pokemon by the Masters Top 100 in the leaderboards. These Pokemon helped the players achieve such a feat so give them a big round of applause!
Game8 chose Mew as Season 12's best Attacker. Mew remained relevant to the meta despite numerous nerfs. It's been a consistent pick for casual and competitive games with impressive win rates. The Pokemon's unique ability to change its moveset on the fly remains unchallenge and argubly one of the strongest and most unique mechanic in the game.
Game8 chose Leafeon as Season 12's best Speedster. Leafeon easily took over the meta ever since its release. Its speed and high burst damage is a lethal combination against any opponent, and its easy early game, and scaling makes it an impactful Pokemon from start to end.
Game8 chose Urshifu as Season 12's best All-Rounder. Urshifu remained as a meta pick throughout the season, particularly in competitive games. It has become go-to jungler for professional teams with an outstanding win rate.
Game8 chose Umbreon as Season 12's best Defender. Umbreon has become the staple Defender pick in the meta. Its usage in ranked matches has gone up significantly with a top-notch win rate just within the season. Although it's not a typical defender, its brawler-like gameplay is exactly what makes the Pokemon effective.
Game8 chose Eldegoss as Season 12's best Supporter. Eldegoss made an impressive comeback in the meta despite becoming idle for some time. The Pokemon managed to break from its traditional healer role and evolved to a more damage-oriented support. Its sudden rise in casual and competitive games showed just how effective this Supporter is in impacting the game.
|Best Holowear for Season 12|
Game8 has chosen these three as Season 12's best holowears. They're the most visually and conceptually creative holowears that came out within the season.
Game8 chose Lefaeon as Season 12's best Newcomer. Although the Pokemon was released just a few days before Season 12, we decided to just treat it as part of the season. Leafeon was one of the much-awaited eeveelution in the game. The Pokemon quickly took over the meta once it was released and has been dominating games ever since. Its early-game scaling, speed, and hight burst damage makes it a hyper-aggressive assassin that is also surprisingly easy to use.
Zacian has completely fallen off the meta ever since it was nerfed in the 18.104.22.168 Update, which made its gameplay much harder to execute. As a result, the Pokemon's strength fell significantly despite its damage staying the same.
Urshifu has become a go-to jungler pick in competitive games with an impressive success rate. Although both of its styles are still effective in their own right, its Single-Strike Style tends to be the preferred one.
