Roles in Pokémon Unite

In the mobile and Nintendo Switch versions of the game, Pokémon have one of five roles assigned to them: Attacker, Multipurpose/Versatile, Speedster/Runner, Defender, or Supporter/Support. Their moves and abilities are correlated with how best to play them on the battlefield. We'll see what type of player is best suited for which role, which Pokémon in that role are best, and exactly how each role should be performed to be most efficient.

Each Pokémon in Unite has a different balance of stats: Offensive, Endurance, Mobility, Score, Support. These different balances determine how best to play them. It's also worth noting that there are three lanes in the arena: Upper, Middle/Jungle and Lower. The function you choose will perform better on some tracks than on others.

Strikers

Who should play as a striker?

The attacker role is probably the easiest to control. Players focus on doing a lot of damage to opponents. These are also the players who should help defend goals and help their friends when they're in trouble.

Forces: The highest damage per second (DPS) of any other Pokémon function to quickly deplete opponent's HP.

Weaknesses: Almost no Toughness, which means they can be easily knocked out if they're not careful.

Best attackers to choose

Alola Ninetales: Alola Ninetales' Dazzling Gleam freezes opponents in place, temporarily allowing you to attack without being attacked. Blizzard's attack also deals ranged damage, allowing you to stay out of harm's way.

Pikachu: Pikachu is probably the easiest Pokémon to play, which makes it a great choice for beginners. It attacks quickly with electricity and can even temporarily paralyze opponents to deal more damage while they can't move.

Cinderace: This rabbit uses ranged fire attacks to hit opponents at close range. This makes it easier for him to get out of trouble.

Best Striker Clues

There are three different tracks in the arena: Upper, Jungle/Middle and Lower. Each of these paths handles differently and offers different types of challenges. Attackers should stay in the upper or lower range as this leads to more wild Pokémon and gets them to goals faster.

How to Play as an Striker

Since you don't have a lot of Stamina, Speed ​​or HP, you need to fight at least one teammate wherever you go. A defender or all-rounder is your best friend, as they have a better defense, and you can attack alongside them while staying safe from a distance. Avoid one-on-one battles as this will likely take you out. Stay close to your goal so you're ready to bounce back and defend your side from opponents.

Multipurpose or Versatile

Versatile players have balanced stats, meaning they can do pretty much anything they want on the field. This is a good feature for people who are experienced in all other styles of play and can help their allies. It's also a good role for people who don't want to get stuck doing the same thing throughout the entire battle.

Strong points: balanced stats mean they can transition to any other role whenever they want. This means that more strategy may be needed to play well, but it can be very powerful if done correctly.

Weaknesses: The opposite is also true, as they don't stand out in any stats, potentially making them weaker than some opponents. That means there's a steeper learning curve to playing them effectively.

Best all-rounders to choose

Lucario: Lucario can move behind opponents quickly and do a lot of damage, both at a distance and up close.

Machamp: Machamp is a strong melee fighter whose Bulk Up movement increases his attack and mobility.

The best Multipurpose tracks

How to play as an all-rounder

Stay close to an attacker and you two will be a force to be reckoned with. The versatile ones also go well with the Supports to take down special Pokémon like Rotom, Drednaw and Zapdos. As a transition player, you'll want to stay on the front lines to take down enemies, score points and protect your own side. Just don't face long-range opponents alone, as these are the ones that are likely to take you down the fastest.

How Speedsters Play Style Works

Weaknesses: They don't have as much HP or Toughness as other roles, so they shouldn't try to fight other Pokémon alone.

Best Speedster to choose

Zero: Zeraora's Spark (Lv 6) can be used three times in a row and has a long range, allowing you to ambush enemies from a distance. The discharge attack (level 8) deals AoE damage and provides a shield for the user. If opponents happen to become paralyzed when hit with Discharge, they will be hurt even more, so aim for a combo.

This allows him to jump over opponents or easily get out of harm's way. He can also throw poisonous mud at opponents with the Slime Bomb.

Best Runs for Runners/Speedster

Since these Pokémon can run faster than the others, they can easily traverse the Jungle area of ​​the arena or any path to quickly reach their allies.

How to play as a Speedster

You can also use this mobility to step forward and help your teammates score points or defend your area. If things start to look difficult, use your dash ability to run away or get directly behind opponents and deal massive damage.

Defenders

Strong points: High resistance makes them last longer against opponents.

Snorlax: Snorlax can take many hits while defending his opponents. Its rest ability helps restore health, while Heavy Slam helps stun enemies.

Slowbro: Slowbro has high defense and can use Surf to fend off enemies. His Telekinesis Move also prevents enemies from moving for a short time, while Slack Off allows him to regain HP.

How to play as defender

Defenders can stand their ground and prevent opponents from successfully scoring points. However, they don't do much damage. That's why it's better to be friends with an attacker. The two of you will balance your weaknesses to become a strong strength.

How to play as Support

Your Role is Critical

By being aware of your Pokémon's weaknesses and playing to its strengths, you and your team can do massive damage. Don't try to get out of your role. It's no use if you're playing with a Support Pokémon and want to go score points or destroy enemies. You might even make it, but make sure that as long as you try to do something that isn't your role, that spot on your team will be vacant and that will only give the opposing team an advantage.
