Popular Fairy-type, Sylveon, is coming to Pokemon Unite in the near future. Here is everything we know about the Eeveelution in the TiMi Studios MOBA.

Ever since its introduction in Gen VI, Sylveon has been a fan-favorite Eevee evolution, largely thanks to its cute design. And it is now coming to Pokemon Unite.

It was revealed in the August 18 Pokemon Direct after dataminers discovered code for it in update files. Here’s what we know so far.


Sylveon confirmed for Pokemon Unite

On August 18, fans were treated to a Pokemon Presents Nintendo Direct. Not only did it show upcoming mainline titles Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and Legends Arceus, but Unite news was also dropped.


Sylveon was confirmed for the MOBA, alongside Mamoswine. The trailer didn’t go into detail though outside of just verifying it’s coming at some point, and no release date or window was given.

Sylveon’s moves in Pokemon Unite

Dataminers have unearthed code for Sylveon’s moves in Pokemon Unite, though they’ve not been confirmed yet. The list is as follows:

  • Swift
  • Psyshock
  • Hyper Voice
  • Attract
  • Draining Kiss
  • Fairy Wind

Pokemon leaker LordLax tweeted about the Fairy-type’s moves in June, before the game was even released, alongside a photo of the code strings. So it’s something that’s been floating around for a while, but no role has been defined yet.


Pokemon Unite Sylveon release date

At the time of writing, there’s no release date set either. TiMi Studios has revealed Blastoise is coming next, but we know nothing after that.

Hopefully, we’ll get more details on the Eeveelution and its role and moves soon.
