Once you hit Level 2, learn Baby Doll Eyes: an move that not only deals damage, but also decreases the enemy’s Attack – perfect for when you’re in a group and have them surrounded.

At Level 6, Draining Kiss takes over Baby Doll Eyes, and at level 7, Mystical Fire replaces Swift as one of the best Sylveon moves to use.

Best Sylveon Held Items in Pokemon Unite

  • Focus Band: Focus Band gives Sylveon a nice Defense boost, giving it an extra edge when charging in and attacking foes. When combined with the Band’s HP boost, it means you’re more likely to come out on top in a skirmish.
  • Wise Glasses: Because the Gen VI ‘mon relies on its Special Attacks, the Sp. Atk boost from the Wise Glasses helps to boost damage, making it insanely useful to have.
  • Shell Bell: Like the previous Held Item, the Shell Bell also raises Sylveon’s Sp. Atk stat. Not only that, but it also heals depending on how high its Special Attack is. Combined with the Wise Glasses, it makes the Attacker an absolute powerhouse.
