Pokémon UNITE Tier List – Best Pokemon for every role – Patch

Pokémon UNITE is a free-to-play game available on Nintendo Switch and your mobile device. It takes the classic Pokemon you know and love, and lets you play them in a Massive Online Battle Arena (MOBA) style game.

Players are paired as teams of five to battle in a 10-minute round to try and achieve victory. The map contains two lanes – top and bottom, and a jungle route. In the current meta, when the match begins, two players head to the top lane, two in the bottom, and one sets off to clear the jungle monsters.

As with most MOBA genre games, specific characters excel in different positions. We’ll be taking a look at some of the strongest and best Pokemon to pick for each position in Pokémon UNITE. We rank every Pokemon in the tier list below from best to worst.

Best All-Rounder Pokemon

A solid all-rounder should have two of the following three: Crowd control, sustain, or burst.

  • Dragonite
  • Tsareena
  • Lucario
  • Garchomp
  • Charizard
  • Machamp

Best Attacker Pokemon

  • Pikachu
  • Cinderace

  • Ninetails
  • Cramorant
  • Decidueye

Best Defender Pokemon

  • Greedent
  • Slowbro
  • Mamo
  • Snorlax
  • Blastoise
  • Crustle

Best Speedster Pokemon

Speedster Pokemon provide a much different play style than your other roles. The Speedster role is constantly moving around the battle arena flanking enemies and scoring points quickly.

  • Talonflame
  • Zeraora
  • Absol
  • Gengar

Best Supporter Pokemon

  • Elde
  • Blissey
  • Wiggly
  • Mime

Best Jungle Pokemon

Despite the game categorizing some Pokemon into specific lanes, some excel in positions the game doesn’t have them in. What the game might consider a top or bottom lane champion can be fantastic in the jungle.

At the end of the day, all Pokemon can benefit from going into the jungle as they have uncontested experience and level quicker. Ideally you’re looking to funnel that quick experience to the Pokemon that have early power spikes.

Here is a list of the best Pokemon to play in the Jungle – also known as “Middle” or “Center”.

  • Dragonite
  • Cinderace
  • Machamp
  • Gardevoir
  • Greedant – If you’re one that invades the enemy jungle often this is a solid pick.
