Pokemon Unite Zoroark releases in

The most recent update debuted Zororark, the new attacker in Pokemon Unite. It plays as a melee damage carry, with a rather similar play style to that of Zeraora. But unlike Zeraora, Zoroark has a previous evolution form in Pokemon Unite.

In other words, it starts off weaker, then gets stronger after evolving.

What’s changing in Pokemon Unite update

The biggest changes are targeted towards picks that have been overbearing in the meta, while giving weaker picks a fighting chance.

Mew and Aegislash nerfed

The nerfs in this patch are rather substantial, helping mitigate some of the more broken picks in the game. In essence, Mew’s domination should be coming to an end after these nerfs. The Aegislash nerfs also decrease the the sword Pokemon’s overbearing damage.

Mew was arguably overpowered prior to the nerfs

Venusaur and Eldegoss buffed

These two Pokemon have definitely fallen out of prevalence in the past couple of months. Venusaur couldn’t deal enough damage and survive long enough to pull of its signature combos, and Eldegoss was displaced by the newer support Pokemon.

These buffs should help them keep up with their contemporaries.
