How to play Eldegoss in Pokemon Unite

The Galar favorite is a great Supporter in Unite.

Eldegoss makes up for its size by having one of the strongest support movesets in the entire roster. Players wanting to focus on offensive damage should look elsewhere as the Galar ‘mon is heavily centered around buffing teammates.

At level 4, we recommend upgrading Leafage for Leaf Tornado. The move not only offers decent damage but also gives teammates an increase in their speed. The attack becomes even more useful when it’s upgraded at level 11 as it decreases enemy accuracy which is perfect for bombing team fights.

Once Eldegoss reaches level 6, we would swap its second ability Synthesis with Cotton Guard. Not only does it absorb damage from enemies, but it also heals your HP. Even better is that the cotton barrier can be attached to teammates. 

Thankfully, the Sword & Shield character’s Unite move is strong strategically. Players will be invincible while Eldegoss floats in the air, before being able to slam down on a group of enemies. Because the attack shoves enemies back, it’s also a great defense against quicker characters about to score a goal.

How to play Mr. Mime in Pokemon Unite

Mr. Mime can hassle opponents in Unite if used right.

According to TiMi Studios, the classic Kanto Pokemon is designed around stalling enemy opponents. Its basic attack and ability Fake Out are good examples of this as both can send enemies flying backward after hitting them.

Once reaching level, we recommend upgrading Fake Out with Psychic. While Confusion is an easy-to-pull off spam attack, Psychic debuffs enemies by lowering their Sp. Def stat. If you manage to hit enemies multiple times, they also paralyzed, making it the superior upgrade.

Mr. Mime’s second ability Light Screen should be used constantly to block enemies from progressing on the map. Look for choke points in the territory where you can block opponents in. At level 6 we would swap the move to Barrier as a total of three walls can be laid out after being upgraded at level 11.

Its Unite move, Showtime, is potent as it allows the player to select where the Pokemon drops in. Trapping a group of enemies with a Barrier and then nuking them with this ultimate ability will do massive damage. It can also be used near goal posts to do damage over time for anyone attempting to go near them.
