The Best Support Builds in Pokémon Unite

You are the one who takes the team safely to the objectives and heals injured allies. Its function is thankless and vital. Get ready for a lot of sweat and little glory when playing as a Support

Team play means everyone does their part, and Pokémon Unite supports play an essential part of every game: Keeping allies alive! Of course, in the beginning, everyone thinks about being the attackers and many don't want to be the healer, because they want the spotlight and be “responsible” for the victory or see large amounts of damage explode on the screen. Think of support as the drummer in a band. He usually stays in the background, gets less attention from the fans than he usually stays with the vocalists and guitarists, does a lot of hard work, but without him the band and the songs are never the same.

Being the healer is a thankless job too. In the heat of the game, few remember to thank you for your help, and when allies die, it's not uncommon to hear that it was your fault for letting the other player die. Even if you're using all your powers and the player insists on digging into enemies without thinking, in his head it's going to be your fault.

Well, if you're ready for a lot of responsibility and little glory, but feel it's your duty to be responsible for supporting your team, we'll help you with the best builds for pokemons support type in Pokémon Unite. You can be the healer or defender and help the team win, even if, in the end, everyone is applauding those who score goals. Because deep down, you know that without your help, they couldn't do it.

Pokémon and Support Builds in Pokémon Unite

Your duty as Support is to help keep your teammates alive and assist in critical situations that can help or prevent a knockout. Whether you're healing an injured ally or attacking an enemy with a crowd control effect, Supports can create or end a fight. Help your allies when needed and share the glorious victory.

Support class Pokémon aren't great at defeating opponents or staying alive in a 1v1 fight. Instead, Supports preserve and enhance your teammates while blocking and weakening your opponents. When playing with a Support, stick together and pair with an attacker or all-rounder to increase your team's damage capacity. You can also pair with a Defender, as needed, to provide a defensive skill boost to your team's formation.

When playing as Support, you should never go anywhere alone. Stay with one of your allies and help heal and protect when they need to defend against opponents or score points. Brackets are ideal for taking down special Pokémon like Drednaw, Rotom and Zapdos. Focus your energy on keeping your allies alive as they face these special Pokémon, and your entire team will benefit from it.

Prepare for Pokémon Unite Battles

Pokémon Unite is an online multiplayer battle arena game, or MOBA, with battles between two teams of five players. The game map is divided into two parts, with several points that must be controlled by the players. Players score points for their team by defeating “wild” Pokémon that appear across the field, capturing them and heading towards one of the opposing team's “goals” to score points. Each match is limited to 10 minutes and the team with the highest total score at the end of each match wins the match.

Players start each game controlling low-level base Pokémon that can level up and learn new combat moves as they win battles and evolve. They are divided into five types of “classes”: Attackers, Defenders, Supports, Versatiles and Speedsters. The game includes a unique “Unite move” mechanic for each Pokémon character. Pokémon Unite is available for Nintendo SwitchAndroid e iOS.
