Best Multipurpose Builds in Pokémon Unite

Multipurpose, or multi-purpose, Pokémon are good at covering roles that are deficient in teams and can be lethal in attack or defense.

Today we're going to talk a little bit about builds for Multipurposes in Pokémon Unite. What would be the polyvalent pokemon? The entire team has its “handyman”. Whether in RPG games, where the bard can be a good option to replace a rogue or a cleric, or in a game like an FPS, where the "mechanic" serves both to repair/destroy tanks and shoot enemies and heal allies, characters who specialize in doing “a little bit of everything” are out there to cover for weaknesses or reinforce a team's strengths.

Of course, because of its “multifunctional” nature, such a character won't be as effective at dealing damage as an attacker or as tough as the defender. He stands in a “middle ground” between these situations and is there to cover a missing role or to reinforce one of the characters on the team. It's important to work together with others, and as someone who isn't at the top of their skills, don't try to do everything yourself unless you can cover your shortcomings with some gimmick like items or potions.
