On December 1, Pokemon Unite updated their game. The patch notes target nerfing some overbearing picks, and also mark the release of the brand new playable pokemon: Urshifu. Here is the full patch notes.

Patch updates help Pokemon Unite’s meta stabilize, providing some much needed balance for some outlier picks. In Pokemon Unite patch, the developers implemented a new battle pass, a brand new playable character, and playable pokemon balancing.

What is changing in Pokemon Unite version

Urshifu debut

The new playable pick has two different forms, similar to that of Scyther and Scizor. In essence, Urshifu has two different base forms: Rapid Strike Style and Single Strike Style. Its form will depend on the move that players commit on, and therefore cannot be changed later on in the game.
