Mew has finally gone live in Pokemon Unite, with the iconic Pokemon joining the game’s roster during the first anniversary celebration. Here’s everything you need to know about Mew in the MOBA, including their moves, stats, and how to build them.
Mew is one of the many new Pokemon to arrive in Pokemon Unite as part of the game’s first anniversary, giving Trainers the chance to play as the iconic Mythical ‘mon.
As a Psychic-type Pokemon, Mew is an Attacker that uses powerful moves to eliminate its opponents from a far range — making it an ability powered sniper in Pokemon Unite.
While leaks revealed basically everything before Mew’s launch, TiMi Studios has finally confirmed it all as the Pokemon goes live in-game. Here’s what you need to know about Mew in Pokemon Unite, including their moves, stats, and the best way to build them.
Pokemon Unite Mew release date
Mew released in Pokemon Unite on September 2, 2022, just as the previous Battle Pass expired. With Volume 3 of the first anniversary now going live, players can queue up and play as the iconic ‘mon.
Pokemon Unite Mew stats
The leaked Mew stats revealed the Pokemon as an Attacker — which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, the Pokemon is a Psychic-type from Generation I with a focus on high damage.
This will make items such as Shell Bell and Choice Specs a must for the Legendary. Keep in mind Mew does not evolve, therefore its stats are relatively linear in growth.
As for Mew’s cost, players will be able to earn Mew for free during the Pokemon Unite anniversary event. Collect all 6 slates to unlock Mew for free. There are actually options to pay to win your way through the event, so keep that in mind for players wanting to gain fast access to the Pokemon.
Pokemon Unite Mew moves
The Psychic Legendary Pokemon plays very differently from other picks in Pokemon Unite. Its movesets aren’t set in stone during the game, but Mew appears to have the unique ability to switch out its moves regularly.
This is thanks to Mew’s Passive ability, Synchronize, which goes on cooldown after around 10 seconds after its used. Takedowns and or scoring a goal reduces this cooldown, thereby increasing Mew’s versatility in a teamfight.
As for the rest of Mew’s leaked moves, it has a wide array available to it. It has moves like Electro Ball, Solar Beam, Surf, and even Light Screen.
Because of Mew’s versatility, it can likely play as both a support and a damage dealer. Of course, this will likely depend on the player’s individual style, since Mew even has the ability to buff allies’ movement speed.
Best Moves Analysis
Instead of learning a new move and being limited to them during the game, Mew has three sets of moves. Switching off these are essential to maximizing the pokemon — so providing a recommended move set for Mew is definitely a tad tricky.
The key to understanding Mew’s moves is understanding when you need each move, and the unique advantage each move provides. As a whole, Solar Beam is the best early game move. It provides a lot of burst damage and range, serving essential for Mew to scale into the game. So take it early for sure. Then combo it with Light Screen to begin with, as to provide more utility during fights.
Once you have the option, level up Surf rather than Electro Ball. Electro Ball is useful more so for a guaranteed last hit on enemies rather than providing any other strong utility. Solar Beam far out damages Electro Ball, and also has more range.
In regards to the other move, Agility is best used for mobility, which really shouldn’t be a shocker considering the name.
Coaching is easily Mew’s best support move, as it grants a shield and increases the target pokemon’s basic attack speed. Therefore, try to opt for Coaching when in team fights and trying to maximize utility.
Best Build (Held Items, Emblems, Battle Item)
For both held items and emblems, build Mew to maximize the pokemon’s special attack. Doing so allows Mew to deal obscene amounts of damage from afar, and is easily the best build and play style for the new pokemon.
Here is the recommend held items:
- Choice Specs
- Wise Glasses
- Shell Bell
Take Green emblems for the most part, to increase Mew’s Special attack stats. Either Green or Black would work wonders, with black granting more cooldown reduction.
Here are the recommend battle items:
The best would likely be X-Speed, which has great utility as a whole in the current meta. You really can’t go wrong with this item — but for those looking for more pure attack, X-Attack works too.
