Best Pokémon in Pokémon Unite
After you see the visual tier list, here is the in-depth detail on why we rated each Best Pokémon the given tier.
Note: This tier list is based of my research and understanding of the game. By no mean this list is official or 100% accurate.
Gengar is the best Pokémon in Pokémon Unite Speedster roster, it's a special attack specialist with very powerful moves from early to the end of the match.
Gengar has the capable of winning 1v1 easily with Lick and Sludge Bomb moveset, by level 7 is where Gengar damage explode with Hex and it is very powerful to kill up to 3 enemies alone.
It unite move is another factor that we decide to rank Gengar as the best Pokémon, it allows Gengar to sneak around the enemies with increase movement speed and deal explosive area of effect damage.
Overall, Gengar is a very strong Jungle Pokémon that is very well deserved the SS tier.
Machamp is the second best Pokémon in Pokémon Unite All-Rounder roster, it's a melee Pokémon that deal very high physical damage with fast attack speed and great mobility which make it an insane roamer.
By reaching level 5 is when you unlock it high mobility move call Submission that allows you to participated in most team fight and disabled enemy with the move.
With high physical damage + fast attack speed + Close combat move, Machamp can takedown the enemy very fast and with proper timing it can kill even more than 1 enemy.
Machamp unite move make it become invulnerable to everything and when aim correctly and can unleash a high potion of AOE damage. Overall Machamp is also a very strong and fun to play Pokémon that is deserved the SS tier in our list.
Ranking third in our tier list is no other than Zeraora, it is a lethal Pokémon that has insanely high physical damage burst but is a little bit squishy.
Zeraora is in speedster roster that mostly play in Center area (Jungle), by reaching level 3 Zeraora already have 2 of the overpower moves: Slash and Agility which is hardly to lose in 1v1 battle.
When Zeraora get Volt Switch (Level 6) is the most dangerous, the move combo with the high critical attack can boost it team fight strength.
The unite move of Zeraora is also very powerful when activate it during team fight. Overall We decide to rank Zeraora in S tier, it can deal very high damage but it is pretty hard to master and it is a little squishy.
Lucario is the fourth best Pokémon that you can tryout in Pokémon Unite. It is an All-Rounder Pokémon that deal very high physical damage that relies on combo most of the time.
We are not saying that Lucario basic attack is weak, Once you know how to combo Lucario moveset: Power-Up punch + Bone rush + basic attack you will see it true 1v1 and team fight strength skyrocket.
Lucario Unite is an AOE ranged move that can output very high damage if you use it correctly. It is also increase the next Power-Up punch damage, so make sure to stick to your combo after using the Unite move.
The reason we decide to rank Lucario as S tier is that it is not a beginner friendly Pokémon that you can lock in and slay the enemy, you need to spend some time to understand the science behind this Pokémon combo and timing.
The best Attacker in Pokémon Unite is Cinderace, this range physical damage attacker has great offense with very good mobility to get in and out of the fight.
Playing Cinderace will require some early game farm to level up for your Feint or Flame Charge so that you have a move to get out of team fight because of having low endurance.
By reaching level 7 or 8 is when Cinderace can become a high damage dealer for the team. The 1v1 strength is also boosted by the Pyro ball move damage.
Cinderace Unite move also deal a high AOE damage plus boosted it movement speed courage to go for a multiple kills. We decided to rate Cinderace as Tier S because it is one of the best attacker that can scale in mid to late game very well.
Snorlax is the best defender in Pokémon Unite, The tankiest Pokémon of all with very good moveset that can disabled and harass the enemy very well.
Snorlax is laning strength is very strong especially when laning with Attacker or All-Rounder, Snorlax move: Tackle can use for early invade or starting a fight.
When reaching Level 8 Snorlax second move can upgrade into either Block or Yawn which is both very good to disable the whole enemy team if use correctly.
Snorlax Unite move is extremely good if you activate it well-timed during team fight, you can distract the enemy attack while your team just unleash all the damage toward them.
Overall Snorlax is a very well deserved S Tier Pokémon because It has the most potential movesets to make different during teamfight.
In Conclusion, Our Tier List is created to help players figure out the strongest Pokémon in Pokémon Unite and figure out how to play it so that they can keep up with the Meta. Please follow us closely because we will consistently update this post when there is a new best Pokémon. Enjoy.
