Decidueye has been teased as the next fighter set to make its debut in Pokemon Unite, so here’s everything we know about the Alola region Pokemon from release date to moveset.

While Nintendo and Timi Studio’s hit MOBA Pokemon Unite began with a lineup of just 19 characters, that roster is constantly expanding with the likes of Sylveon, Mamoswine, Blastoise, and Gardevoir being added as paid DLC.

Most of the confirmed (and leaked) Pokemon have now been added to the lineup, but it seems as though the devs are always working on more, as they’ve just teased that the next addition to the roster will be Decidueye!

Decidueye release date in Pokemon Unite

It’s been confirmed that Decidueye will be added to Pokemon Unite on Friday, November 19, 2021.

This marks a bit of a change, as TiMi Studio usually debuts new characters in the middle of the week.

How do we know Decidueye is coming to Pokemon Unite?

The official Pokemon Unite Twitter account teased the arrival of Decidueye by sharing an image of arrows with a green aura flying into the arena, which certainly fits with the Grass/Ghost-types appearance.

Many players were already anticipating the Alola starter’s arrival after it was teased during the Halloween Festival event, where a pumpkin with the face of Gen VII’s Rowlet could be seen in promotional art.

While that could have simply been a fun easter egg for the Halloween event, the official Pokemon Unite Twitter account later confirmed that Decidueye will indeed be coming to Unite.

 

Decidueye moveset in Pokemon Unite

While other fighters in Pokemon Unite have leaked early along with their movesets, we don’t currently have any specific details about Decidueye’s movesets, stats, or its playstyle.

However, a teaser shared by the game’s Twitter account has given us a glimpse at what to expect from its moves, with most of them revolving around Decidueye shooting arrows.

 

It would make sense for Decidueye to be a ranged Attacker, firing arrows at opponents, although there are already a lot of Attackers in Unite, and the most recent addition, Sylveon, was also in that category.

We’ll just have to wait and see when Decidueye debuts on the battlefield, but in the meantime, check out our Pokemon Unite homepage for more news, guides, and leaks.
