We asked Pokemon Unite players which Pokemon they’d love to see added to the TiMi Studios MOBA next. From Luxray to Hitmonchan, they shared some interesting answers.
At the time of writing, the 5v5 MOBA has 21 playable characters in five different roles. With Blastoise coming next and rumors of Sylveon and Blissey on the way, excitement for more fighters is higher than ever.
Over on our dedicated Pokemon Twitter, we asked which ‘mon and their roles Unite players want to see make their way to the game – and they didn’t disappoint! Here’s what they said.

Pokemon Unite players’ character wishlist
Coming in hot, the first popular suggestion was Gen VII starter evolution, Primarina, as an Attacker. This seems like a natural fit due to the Water/Fairy-type’s ability to shoot water with Hydro Pump, making it the perfect ranged fighter.
Another player suggested the Sun & Moon ‘mon as a Supporter which would also work well because of its ranged moves. Imagine being able to blast heals across the map to injured teammates? We need it ASAP.
Primarina and I think the role should have could be Ranged Attacker!! pic.twitter.com/hJb664NdPa

Another popular response was Luxray as a Speedster. This makes total sense as the Gen IV ‘mon is fast, using Electric-type moves to shock and stun opponents which obviously translates well to Unite’s MOBA-style gameplay.
Luxray, Speedster 🥺

Perhaps the most suitable pick of all was Tyrogue, with the Gen II Baby Pokemon evolving into either Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, or Hitmontop depending on your kills, deaths, and overall score.

This idea is something we could see actually happening in Unite as it seems too fitting to pass up and would no doubt be a character that players would drop their Aeos Coins on in a heartbeat. Evolutions decided by how you’re faring in a match? Yes, please.
Tyrogue that evolves at 3 minutes. Hitmonlee if you have more kills than deaths. Hitmonchan if you have more deaths than kills and hitmontop If those scores are equal
