Pokemon Unite best Decidueye build – Moveset, Battle & Held Items

. 8 months ago
Nintendo / TiMi Studio

Mastering Decidueye’s best build in Pokemon Unite requires knowledge of its optimal moveset, Battle Items, and Held Items. Get that right, and it can be a deadly Attacker.

Decidueye has finally arrived in Pokemon Unite, allowing Trainers to take the owl-like Alola region starter Rowlet into battle and evolve it into the powerful Decidueye for some brilliant arrow-based ranged attacks.

As many players expected, the Grass/Ghost-type is an Attacker. This style of fighter has low Endurance but focuses on dealing heavy damage to your opponents, making them perfect for taking on large crowds.

Below, you’ll find Decidueye’s best moveset in Pokemon Unite, including the move path you should be following as well as the best items to take you straight to victory on the battlefield.

From the best moves to choose, through to the Battle Items and Held Items you need to take into the arena, you’ll find everything you need to know to master Decidueye below.

Decidueye moveset

Move Unlocked Upgrade
Leafage attack symbol
Leafage Level 1
Razor Leaf attack symbol
Razor Leaf Level 7 Level 11: Increases the user’s basic Attack damage the higher the opponent’s HP is.
Shadow Sneak attack symbol
Shadow Sneak Level 8 Level 13: Further decreases opponent’s Defense.
Nock Nock attack symbol
Nock Nock (UNITE Move) Level 9

At the start of every battle, Rowlet will have access to either Leafage or Astonish. You’ll get both eventually, but go with Leafage first, as it deals some solid damage and increases your Attack and Speed, helping you farm EXP and level up faster.

When you finally evolve into Decidueye, you’ll get access to either Razor Leaf or Spirit Shackle. The best option here is Razor Leaf, as it boosts both Attack and Basic Attack Speed, and lets your basic attacks attack multiple opponents for a short time after.

At Level 8, Decidueye can learn either Leaf Storm or Shadow Sneak. We’d recommend Shadow Sneak as it decreases an enemy’s movement speed and Defense while improving your own speed, leaving them very vulnerable and also allowing you to make a quick getaway.

Best Decidueye Held Items in Pokemon UNITE

  • Muscle Band: Most Pokemon can benefit from holding Muscle Band in Unite, but it’s especially good for Attackers with an Offense stat as good as Decidueye’s, increasing both Attack and Basic Attack speed.
  • Scope Lens: Another great Attack-focused Held Item for Decidueye is the Scope Lens, which increases the holder’s critical-hit rate and the damage a critical hit can do if it manages to land one.
  • Focus Band: While the previous Held Items play into Decidueye’s abilities as an Attacker, we’d also recommend Focus Band for reducing its fragility slightly and making it more durable on the battlefield.

  • Eject: We recommend the Eject Button for most Pokemon in Unite, and Decidueye is no different. This is a very helpful item that allows the user to escape from difficult situations and avoid being knocked out, which is especially important for Pokemon with low Endurance and HP.
