How to Play Panic Parade

Defend Tinkaton at All Costs

Keeping Tinkaton alive until all Pokemon waves are defeated is the primary objective of Panic Parade. Players must do what they can to defend Tinkaton from hordes of Pokemon.

Pull Pokemon Away from Tinkaton

When Pokemon are amassing near Tinkaton, get their attention by attacking or moving near them and pull them away from Tinkaton. Use strong area moves to quickly take out groups of Pokemon.

Use Recovery Bomb to Heal Tinkaton

One effective strategy to keep Tinkaton alive is to use Recovery Bomb on Tinkaton, healing it for a decent amount. If possible, always use Recovery Bomb near Tinkaton to keep it healthy.

Obtain Aeos Shooter Boosts

Pokemon UNITE - Panic Parade - Obtain Aeos Shooter Boost.png

Obtain Aeos Shooter boosts to improve your Pokemon's stats. They can be obtained in the Event Point Shop by exchanging points earned after playing Panic Parade. They are automatically equipped once they are obtained.

Furthermore, don't forget to buy higher-level ones for better efficiency. Remember that the Aeos Shooter boost with the highest level will automatically be equipped.

Catch Waves Further Up the Lane

Once the game starts, pick a lane and travel towards its tip. From there, try to defeat each Pokemon as quickly as possible to prevent them from swarming in. Use disabling and/or high-burst moves to slow their assault and keep the lane shoved outwards.

Block Their Path with Walls

One effective strategy to slow down Pokemon waves is to block their path with walls. Use moves like Barrier and Avalanche and/or battle items like Electro Wall to place obstacles that will stop Pokemon from moving forward. This is especially useful against boss Pokemon like Zapdos since they move significantly slower than the rest.

Defeat Eldegoss Spawns Quickly

Eldegoss will spawn occasionally between the lanes and will grant large shields to other Pokemon and heal them constantly, making them harder to knock out and allowing them to swarm in. Take out the Eldegoss spawns as quickly as possible when they appear to make defending easier.

Defeat Vespiquen Spawns Quickly

Vespiquen will spawn occasionally in each lane. Although they're slow, they will summon Combees constantly that can overwhelm the team. Defeat Vespiquen spawns as fast as possible when they appear to prevent Combees from piling up, especially near Tinkaton.

Don't Let Electrodes Get Close to Tinkaton

Electrode will spawn occasionally in each lane. They are quite fast and will head straight for Tinkaton. Once they get near Tinkaton, they will use Self-destruct, dealing large damage to Tinkaton and any Pokemon around it. Defeat Electrode spawns quickly before they get near Tinkaton to prevent or minimize the damage they can deal.

Defeat Abra Spawns Quickly

Abra will spawn occasionally in lanes. They will attack Tinkaton from an extremely long range and teleport around the map. Clear our Abra spawns quickly to prevent Tinkaton from receiving unwated damage.

Defeat Delibirds for a Battle Item

Delibirds will spawn at certain times and will wander around the map. They will drop a present when they are defeated. Picking up presents gives the Pokemon a random, unique Battle Item.

Battle Items can Expire and Get Replaced

Battle Items picked up from Delibird's presents can expire once used a certain number of times. They can also get replaced by another Battle Item when picking up one or when defeating a capturable Pokemon.

Capture Pokemon

Some Pokemon can be captured and summoned as an ally when they are defeated. They are marked by a golden Pokeball beside their HP bar. Defeating these Pokemon can help in defending Tinkaton by attacking waves and soaking damage.

To summon them, simply press the Battle Item button.

Dodge Pokemon Moves

Some Pokemon can use moves as they charge towards Tinkaton. These moves deal devastating damage and can easily knockout less agile and durable Pokemon. Dodge their moves to prevent getting knocked out unnecessarily, especially the ones from boss Pokemon like Zapdos.

Move Away from Allies and Tinkaton During Shock Wave

Zapdos and Regigigas will use Shock Wave on every allied Pokemon, except Tinktaton. Once Shock Wave is active, any nearby allied Pokemon, including Tinkaton, receives tons of damage when near an affected Pokemon.

Once Shock Wave is used, spread out and stay outside of each other's Shock Wave AoE until the effect expires. Moreover, never go near Tinkaton while Shock Wave is still active since it deals considerable damage to the Pokemon.

Panic Parade Features

Defense-type Game Mode

Panic Parade is a defense-type game mode where players have to defend Tinkaton from waves of Pokemon. The primary objective of the game mode is to keep Tinkaton alive until all waves of Pokemon are defeated.

Has Three Lanes

The map has three lanes where waves of Pokemon will spawn and push the lanes.

Pokemon Waves

A set of Pokemon, which are called waves, will spawn at certain intervals of the game. Each wave of Pokemon starts simple enough but gradually becomes harder and stronger.

Special Spawns

Normally, Pokemon will spawn at the tip of each lane, then push the lane towards Tinkaton. However, certain waves have Pokemon that spawn at certain spots on the map. These special spawns can do unique things other than just push the lanes.

Random Spawns

A random Pokemon will occasionally spawn during certain waves. These Pokemon are taken from the current roster.

Boss Spawns

Players can also encounter boss Pokemon in certain waves. These Pokemon are strong and incredible hard to take down due to their massive HP.

Aeos Shooters

Pokemon UNITE - Panic Parade - Obtain Aeos Shooter Boost.png

Players can equip Aeos Shooter boosts to improve their Pokemon's stats, which works similarly like Boost Emblems, but is exclusively for Panic Parade. They can be obtained in the Event Point Shop by exchanging points earned after playing Panic Parade. Each Aeos Shooter boost has five (5) levels that gives better stats as the level increases.

Aeos Shooters Effect

Has Rankings

Pokemon UNITE - Panic Parade Rankings.png

Players with top scores can be placed in the Panic Parade ranking. The more HP Tinkaton has left and the faster the completion time, the higher players can place in the rankings!

However, it's not clear which level of difficulty is required to be placed within the rankings, but it can be assumed that players need to play in Extreme difficulty for objectivity.

25 UNITE Walkthrough Team@Game8about 1 month

Hello! Thank you for your comment. Firstly, we think you might be playing with bots, which does make it hard for you to win since they usually pick awful Pokemon and don't respond well. If that's not the case, we do suggest buying Aeos Shooters from Panic Parade's Even Point shop. Prioritize buying the Attack/Sp. Atk, Attack Speed, and Critical-Hit rate, then go for HP next. This will make your Pokemon significantly more powerful, which makes the game easier to win.
