What Pokémon does the game start with?

At the beginning of the game you will have 20 pokémon available to choose from, among them you can unlock Zeraora, one of the pokémon that will be exclusive for those who enter the game before August 31.

You can also get licenses to unlock new pokemons, as you level up your trainer or even by entering the Unite Battle Committee and buying them directly with the in-game currency that will be used within this new pokemon universe.


If you are one of the fans of the famous Pikachu, we tell you that you can get it when you start the game totally free , you just have to complete the pre-order before the start date of the game for iOS and Android devices and wait for the number of orders exceed 2,500,000 applications, which will not be difficult knowing the popularity of this game.

This creature will be one of the playable characters of Pokémon Unite, its attributes allow it to be an extremely strategic Pokémon, due to its attack, defense and support abilities , so you can adapt it by equipping it with items that can enhance all its power.

It is a relatively simple Pokémon to handle, so it is ideal for players who are new to this game or are beginners, but once you master it it can be one of the most fearsome Pokémon in the entire arena.

What are the levels, what are they and how many does Pokémon Unite have?

The levels within Pokémon Unite are called “Tier” and these can vary depending on the adjustments that the developers need to make to the characters of the game, as it is the case of having to nerf a pokémon that is deliberately more powerful than the others , giving his trainer an advantage over others who may have a better game strategy , but use a pokémon deliberately deficient in their abilities.

The levels are organized in 4 classifications, which we will talk about in detail later, this is not a list imposed by the game developers , rather it is based on the experience and opinion of expert pokémon players since its inception, so you should To be considered only as a guide, the results you obtain will depend on the skill and strategy of each player.

Tier C

Before ending this guide we want to share with you which are the best pokémon of each of its classes in this new game, so that you are fully prepared when its premiere for mobile devices arrives and you can get the most out of each of its attributes.

Pikachu (Attacker)

Honestly, we could not imagine a pokémon universe without pikachu , who has given so much personality to this fantastic world, but not only because of his charisma, but also has very powerful combat skills that make him one of the favorite creatures to face almost any opponent.

We know that Pikachu uses electricity as the main element to enhance its attacks, which by the way, are at a distance, we can also say that it is a fairly easy pokémon to master and has no evolutions in its design. Its detailed characteristics according to the official website of Pokémon Unite are:

  • Offensive:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Stamina:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Agility:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Annotation:2 out of 5 stars.
  • Support:5 out of 5 stars.

Among the most powerful skills or ” moveset ” of Pikachu we can mention the following, take into account that if you learn to combine their movements with the best Held Items you can achieve superior results.

  • Basic Attack:This attack automatically makes you do a charged attack after making three attacks that paralyzes your opponents for a few seconds
  • Thunderstorm (Incessant Storm):This is one of his most powerful attacks, it consists of launching very powerful rays of electricity at his rivals
  • Thunder:This ability sends out rays that deal damage to opponents within an area of ​​effect.
  • Volt Tackle (Electric Tackle):It charges with electricity and attacks forward pushing its rivals.
  • Thunderbolt (Lightning):His attack carries an explosion of electricity preventing his enemies from moving for a few seconds.

Other attacks that Pikachu has and that are very powerful if you combine them well , are Electro Ball (Volt Ball), Thunder Shock (Thunder Shock), Electroweb (Electrotele) and Static (Static Electricity).

Snorlax (Defender)

Snorlax is an endearing defender pokémon whose attacks are melee or short range, it is an easy creature to control and like Pikachu, it does not evolve either. However, the attributes that this pokémon has make it the best tank in its category, since it defends its companions like no other. We share a list with the detailed attributes on the official page of Pokémon Unite.

  • Offensive:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Stamina:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Agility:2 out of 5 stars.
  • Annotation:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Support:5 out of 5 stars.

We also want to tell you about Snorlax’s ” moveset “, study his abilities well and learn to combine them since this popular character will be one of the playable pokémon in the new edition of Pokémon Unite.

  • Basic attack:This pokémon also has a basic attack that consists of executing an additional charged blow after 3 attacks, dealing damage to all nearby enemies and reducing the movement speed of each of them for a short period of time.
  • Tackle (Tackle):It propels itself forward and with its huge belly it pushes the closest enemy pokémon. After using this attack, the next basic hit will be charged.
  • Gluttony (Gluttony):This power is used to increase the effect that the berries cause when you eat them.
  • Heavy Slam:Snorlax will jump to the ground, dealing damage to enemies in range.
  • Rest:This super ability causes Snorlax to fall asleep on the ground to regain his HP, but while that happens, it also blocks the movement of all Pokémon on the opposing team.
  • Fail:As he lashes and his HP decreases, his basic attack damage increases.
  • Block:Snorlax will open his arms and create a protective wall that will work as a shield so that enemies cannot pass, in addition to pushing opponents who collide with the wall.

Talonflame (Sprinter)

Talonflame is a pokémon that makes the opposing team have a really bad time because its abilities allow it to overcome obstacles and quickly maneuver the attacks that are sent against it. It is an extremely fast creature (Speedster) and its attacks are short-range, so it must get close enough to its enemy to have an effect on it. The difficulty to maneuver this character is quite low and has 3 evolutions (Fletchling at level 1, Fletchinder at level 5 and Talonflame when it reaches level 7). Its attributes are as follows:

  • Offense:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Stamina:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Agility:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Annotation:5 out of 5 stars.
  • Support:5 out of 5 stars.

Talonflame’s moveset and attacks are quite broad , we will mention the details of them, so that you can use them combined with your team and guarantee a victory within Pokémon Unite.

  • Basic Attack:As with the previous pokémon, for every 3 Talonflame attacks the next one will be charged and will deal greater damage to its enemies.
  • Gale Wings:When Talonflame accumulates enough HP, his movement speed increases.
  • Acrobatics (Acrobat):This creature will fly to the area you indicate and attack several times and then escape in another direction.
  • Peck (Peck):Talonflame will fly up to the targeted enemy and attack them three times in a row with its pickaxe.
  • Aerial Ace:This ability allows you to fly to the selected enemy pokémon and deal damage to it, plus the next basic attack it makes will be charged.
  • Flame Charge (Nitrocarga):It will make your pokémon fly in the direction you indicate, but this time engulfed in flames, while attacking all the enemies that are in its path. In addition, this ability increases the speed of movement in a short period of time.
  • Flame Sweep:This pokémon will do an aerial maneuver and then charge forward with force, damaging enemies during its trajectory.

So far our guide to the pokémon available for the next launch of Pokémon Unite for mobile devices, we hope that this information will be of great use to you when designing your game strategy.
