Pokémon Unite surprised us with its announcement, but it has been winning us little by little. This version of the franchise belonging to the MOBA genre follows the guidelines of other greats of the genre, such as League of Legends. Still, it can define itself by offering us unique gameplay based on the collectible monsters that have accompanied us throughout our childhood. A premise that has captivated countless players, in which the objective is to win and, to do so, there is nothing like using the best Pokémon available in the game.
It’s the complex law of the meta: no matter how good the patches are, there will always be more efficient pokémon. We can be the best trainers in our neighborhood, but it will be worthless if we choose a character with attacks that are too weak or difficult to combine with our allies. Thus, their thing is to have a reference Tier List in which to be able to check at a glance what paths the title takes to maximize the chances of success.
Of course, everything must be taken with a certain balance. That a pokémon dominates does not mean that it is perfect for you. The metagame only tells us the easiest way to win a game. However, if you are true titans with any of the characters and it is working for you, your thing is that you keep trying with her. However, it would be a great idea if you try to master the ones that aim to be the most efficient in Pokémon Unite first.
Pokémon Unite Tier List
The first question you should ask when you come across a Tier List is how it has been carried out. In the case of Pokémon Unite, we have considered a series of criteria to try to make up for the lack of statistical data on the creatures’ performance.
Opinions of the players with the most hours behind them
Presence of pokémon in the games of the most experienced players
Personal experience enjoying the title
Information collected throughout the different spaces dedicated to the game
Easy to dominate creatures in a few games
In the highest Tier, there will only be one pokémon of each category
Little by little, we will try to expand the criteria and improve the Tier List, reviewing it every few days to ensure everything is as accurate as possible. Especially in this day and age, as Pokémon Unite is coming to mobile devices soon.
Dominating the Tier List, the best of the best in Pokémon Unite
He has finally made it to the major leagues. This pokémon is a real headache if it gets ahead and has finally improved thanks to the latest patches. The best alternative among fighters thanks to its mobility and very significant damage. We have already prepared a few tips for this creature,
It may not stand out in the main games, but Pokémon Unite is another story. Not bad for a regional rodent that had barely had a leading role in the saga until now.
Pokémon is mainly intended for the attack. The franchise’s mascot has been freed from the yoke of the statistics of the main games, being one of the best options to dominate enemies from a distance and finish off rivals.
Support / Auxiliary
Hoopa came to Pokémon Unite with some of the strangest and most exciting abilities in the game right now. She can be very useful to the team, offering significant tactical and in-fight advantages.
Tsareena has become one of the best characters available, according to the opinion of almost all players. Her excellent damage output and some defensive features have been enough to make her just as feared as Lucario.
A step below, but creatures to watch out for
Support / Auxiliary
It is one of the most potent supports, a category that suffers a bit in terms of the quality of its creatures. However, Eldegoss is not a bad option to help our teammates and is exceptional in the early game.
The fire footballer is one of the best alternatives among the characters with the most significant damage. He keeps up with the best of them and quickly switches things up with his interesting basic attacks—a somewhat complicated option to handle.
Greninja has been gradually gaining integers, but it is still insufficient. Upon release, he was not up to par with the rest of the playable characters in Pokémon Unite. All told, she has her space in specific team compositions.
He has just arrived, but he has done very well. His incredible skill combos are enough to enable this ‘eeveelution’ to sneak into the noble zone of the Tier List without too much trouble. We must be very aware of its evolution, but we are optimistic.
He was a Tier S regular, but the meta has evolved to offer better options. Despite everything, it is an excellent alternative and, in addition, it is part of the group of initials.
We like Slowbro, and he’s easy to come by, a support tank that can be decisive in many compositions. It can stand out thanks to Telekinesis, one of the game’s best attacks.
He’s not as highly rated as he should be due to his difficulty landing his most potent attacks. However, he lived up to the predictions and moved up the Tier List as the players got better.
Dragonite had a great debut in Pokémon Unite. His excellent ability to move around the map makes him very interesting on any team and decisive in group fights. We have already prepared a guide with the build of Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite so you can master it.
Support / Auxiliary
Unless new additions outperform her, we should always keep Nurse Joy’s cute pet in mind. He is one of the most valuable characters in protecting teammates and top-notch support. His great healing ability will be able to help characters destined to pull on the bandwagon.
With a remarkable ability to control enemies through his well-charged CC attacks, he has established himself as one of the most exciting alternatives among offensive tanks. It has only just arrived in the game, but we already have a Blastoise guide prepared so that you can take advantage of it.
It is one of the first pokémon that we are going to get, and it more than complies. He performs very well after his early evolution as one of the biggest ranged threats in the game. Thus, we will be able to take advantage of it very soon and start mastering it when we reach the ranks. If you need help, we already have a Ninetales Alola guide available.
He has good damage and exciting attacks but suffers the same disorder like many other damage-focused champions. Many excellent alternatives in its category making it very difficult for it to stand out. If you like it, it is viable, and we have already prepared a Duraludon guide for you so you can take advantage of it.
We want to be careful with Delphox since he just arrived. However, he points the way as a control mage, a figure not so exploited within the offensive pokémon. This differentiation and the fact that it is better than Espeon gives us some hope. We have already prepared a Delphox guide for you to learn how to play it.
We started to get into the lower category of pokémon.
We were able to get it for free for starting to play Pokémon Unite, and it has proven to have more than respectable power. He lost whole with the irruption of other ‘jungles.’ They stay in position, and it’s still terrifying when they get ahead. If you want to know more about him, we have a Zeraora guide to help you.
Aegislash falls in the middle of a lot of things without being brilliant. After being ‘nerfed’ in the official games, they seem to have not wanted to let him shine in Pokémon Unite either. As much as we’d like to see him higher up, it looks like the new reality for him is the mid-tiers. You can learn how to play it in our Aegislash guide.
Espeon didn’t quite fit into Pokémon Unite, and most players have decided not to pay too much attention to it. The offensive role is oversaturated, and there is a lot of competition, so it is easy to find similar but better options than this evolution of Eevee. You can find an Espeon guide here if you want to play it.
He makes up for his lack of agility with good stats on everything else and becomes a respectable alternative. Despite its lack of mobility, it has become one of the pleasant surprises in Pokémon Unite. It has excellent potential, tons of damage, and many resistances. We help you take advantage of it with the Machamp guide we have prepared.
Although it seemed to have a lot of potentials, it has not been able to impose itself on the rest of the creatures in Pokémon Unite. It’s practical and can be played with many guarantees, but it seems relegated to a mediocre place in the Tier List. Here is an Azumarill guide to learning how to play it.
Decidueye has been somewhere in the middle since its release. This is appreciated, as we wanted a shooter based on basic attacks. However, he is not as effective as the top damage characters and suffers from too many roster members. If you need help, you can consult our guide to Decidueye and his evolutionary chain.
This robust creature maintains its identity in Pokémon Unite with recovery options and excessive damage if it hits us. It is a lazy pokémon, and playing against it is also lazy. We must be careful with him and learn to dominate him since he is one of the most defensive creatures in the game. Luckily, we have already put together a Snorlax guide.
Support / Auxiliary
It offers significant opponent control and is one of the most exciting alternatives in the support position. However, this category is still one of those that needs more and better additions to the entire game. We have prepared a Wigglytuff guide so you can take advantage of it.
