Greedent Now Available in Pokémon UNITE

Add this berry useful Melee Defender to your team, and get ready to belly flop the competition.

Prepare to stash, eat, and wield Berries in Pokémon UNITE, as Greedent is now available to join your team. This Berry-consuming Pokémon is a Melee Defender, and it's ready to unleash its unorthodox attacks against your opponents in battle. This Pokémon begins each match as Skwovet, which will evolve into Greedent at Lv. 5.

An essential feature of Greedent's gameplay and attacks is that it stashes Berries in its tail, later utilizing these Berries to help power attacks and restore HP. Each of Greedent's moves involves consuming, dropping, or stashing Berries.

Greedent's basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing increased damage when it hits and causing one Berry to drop from Greedent's tail. Greedent's Ability, Cheek Pouch, allows it to recover HP by eating a Berry, in addition to gaining the usual effects of the Berry. At the same time, Greedent stealthily stashes another Berry in its tail. Whenever Greedent is hit, whether by a single attack or a combination of attacks, it will drop a Berry from its tail.

Skwovet and Greedent's Moves

At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Skwovet can learn Tackle and Defense Curl.

Tackle has Skwovet leap to a designated area, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. If Skwovet has any Berries hidden in its tail, it will consume all of them. The more Berries it consumes, the more Tackle's cooldown period is reduced.

Defense Curl grants Skwovet a shield for a short time and also drops a Berry in front of Skwovet.

When Skwovet reaches Lv. 5 and evolves into Greedent, Defense Curl can be upgraded into one of two moves: Stuff Cheeks or Covet.

Stuff Cheeks has Greedent drop several Berries, which it can then eat to recover HP. If Greedent's recovered HP exceeds its maximum HP, that extra HP will be converted into a shield effect. If Greedent catches sight of a Berry while using this move, its movement speed is increased for a short time. Stuff Cheeks can be upgraded to increase the number of Berries Greedent drops from its tail.

Covet has Greedent run with all its might, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and throwing them. While running, Greedent drops Berries from its tail. If Greedent eats a dropped Berry, its movement speed is increased for a short time. The more Berries Greedent eats, the faster it will move. Additionally, the move Belch or Bullet Seed can also be used while running. Greedent can also utilize the move Tackle while Covet is active, slightly changing the attack so that Greedent does not leap to a designated area. Instead, while Greedent is running, Tackle deals damage to opposing Pokémon in front of it. Covet can be upgraded to increase the damage it deals and increase the frequency at which Greedent drops Berries.

At Lv. 7, Tackle can be upgraded into one of two moves: Bullet Seed or Belch.

Bullet Seed has Greedent spit Berry seeds in a designated direction. This deals damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time. The more Berries Greedent has stashed away, the more damage this move deals. Bullet Seed can be upgraded to increase the damage it deals.

Belch deals damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time. If Greedent has any Berries stashed in its tail when using this move, it consumes all of them. The more Berries Greedent consumes, the more this move's cooldown period is reduced. Belch can be upgraded to increase the damage it deals.

Greedent's Unite Move, Berry Belly Flop

To truly throw the opposition, make use of Greedent's Unite Move, Berry Belly Flop, which it learns at Lv. 9. This area attack kicks off with Greedent eating a Berry to recover HP. Greedent then leaps to the designated area, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and throwing them. Greedent then eats a special Berry, which allows it to stash an unlimited number of Berries in its tail for a short time and also resets the cooldowns of its other moves.

Greedent is ready to be a berry useful Defender to your team. Belly flop on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop to get Greedent's Unite license now.

A spooky Halloween event is on its way to Pokémon UNITE! Get ready to scare up a good time from October 20th, 2021 to November 7th, 2021, and treat yourself to some Halloween fun!

Halloween Brings Pumpkins to Pokémon UNITE’s Mer Stadium

Toss pumpkins at your opponents in these fun new battles, and collect pumpkins to exchange for limited-time items and Holowear.

You'll find pumpkins aplenty in Pokémon UNITE with the arrival of Aeos Island's Halloween celebration. From October 20, 2021, to November 10, 2021, the game will feature all sorts of tricks and treats, including a fun new take on Mer Stadium battles, special bonuses that earn you pumpkins, and festive new ways to deck out your Trainer and your Pokémon. And don't be surprised if the game looks a little spookier than usual, too!

Pumpkin Attack

You'll certainly notice a big change when you play a quick battle in Mer Stadium. Now during a match, the battle item button controls your Pumpkin Toss. Tap this button, and you'll lob a pumpkin that covers the opposing Pokémon for a short time. Just be aware that you can hit your teammates as well, and they can do the same to you, so be ready to dodge incoming produce!

While a Pokémon is covered with a pumpkin, it's unable to score points and it moves by bouncing, which increases its speed. Although pumpkined Pokémon can't use their normal moves, they do have access to a special move called Pumpkin Tackle. This dash can be used to smack into opposing Pokémon and push them aside, as well as flee from trouble.

If that doesn't get you pumped, participating in Mer Stadium's festive battles can also earn you collectible pumpkins that can be exchanged for limited-time Halloween items. Mer Stadium will be decked out for Halloween only until November 7, so play as many matches as you can before then.

Pumpkin Bonuses

There are also other ways to earn pumpkins. From October 20 to November 7, there'll be daily log-in bonuses, and from October 29 to November 2, you'll be able to complete daily missions to collect even more. These pumpkins can be used in the Pumpkin Exchange to get items such as Battle Point boost cards, a Greedent Unite license, a Halloween background, a Halloween hat, and more.

There will also be Halloween-themed items available in the shop. Look for spooky fashion items to dress your Trainer in—plus limited-time Pokémon Holowear, including Costume Party Style: Lucario and Costume Party Style: Zeraora.

The Pumpkin Exchange and Halloween shop items will be around only until November 10, so don't wait to scare up some style.

There's certainly a lot of to do in Pokémon UNITE this Halloween season, so go grab those gourds!

Sylveon has arrived in Pokémon UNITE on October 5th, 2021 at 5:00pm PT, along with the Poncho Style Holowear and a matching Trainer outfit! Sylveon is a playful Ranged Attacker is ready to scorch, smooch, and stare down opponents.

pic

Sylveon Frolics Its Way into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to scorch the competition in Pokémon UNITE, as Sylveon is now available to join your team. This Pokémon is a Ranged Attacker, and it’s ready to stare opponents into submission. Sylveon begins each match as Eevee, and it will evolve into Sylveon at Lv. 4.

Eevee’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing increased damage when it hits. When Eevee evolves into Sylveon, its boosted basic attacks will also increase its movement speed for a short time when they hit. Eevee starts out with the Ability Adaptability, which increases Eevee’s Sp. Atk for a short period whenever it deals or receives damage. When Eevee evolves into Sylveon, Adaptability becomes Pixilate, which increases Sylveon’s Sp. Atk and Sp. Def for a short time whenever it deals or receives damage.

Sylveon’s Moves

At Lv. 1 and Lv. 2, Eevee learns Swift and Baby-Doll Eyes. Swift is an attack that shoots star-shaped rays at opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to them. When using Baby-Doll Eyes, Eevee stares at an opposing Pokémon, dealing damage and decreasing the opposing Pokémon’s Attack and movement speed for a short time when the move hits.

When Eevee reaches Lv. 4 and evolves into Sylveon, Swift can be upgraded into one of two moves—Mystical Fire or Hyper Voice.

Mystical Fire has Sylveon create four small flames while it advances in a designated direction. The flames shoot toward opposing Pokémon one by one, dealing damage and decreasing the opposing Pokémon’s Sp. Atk for a short time when they hit. Each time a flame hits, it reduces this move’s cooldown period. This attack can also be upgraded to increase the number of flames by one.

Hyper Voice unleashes multiple sound waves that deal damage when they hit. The damage they deal increases the farther the target is from Sylveon. Every time a sound wave hits, the next sound wave’s damage increases. Like Mystical Fire, this attack can also be upgraded to increase the number of sound waves by one.

At Lv. 6, Baby-Doll Eyes can be upgraded into either Draining Kiss or Calm Mind.

When Sylveon uses Draining Kiss, it blows a kiss at an opposing Pokémon. The kiss moves between Sylveon and the opposing Pokémon multiple times. When the kiss touches Sylveon, it restores Sylveon’s HP, and when the kiss hits an opposing Pokémon, it deals damage to it and decreases its movement speed for a short time. Draining Kiss can also be upgraded to increase the amount of HP it restores Sylveon.

Calm Mind has Sylveon quietly focus its mind and calm its spirit to increase its Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and movement speed for a short time. An upgrade to Calm Mind allows Sylveon to completely nullify the damage of an opposing Pokémon’s move. This nullification can occur only once each time Calm Mind is used, and if it is successful, Sylveon gains a shield afterward.

Sylveon’s Unite Move, Fairy Frolic

Show the opposition just how invincible you are with Sylveon’s Unite Move, Fairy Frolic, which it learns at Lv. 8. This attack sends Sylveon leaping into the air, rendering it temporarily invincible. The moment Sylveon lands, it deals damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and restores its own HP. For a short time afterward, a percentage of the damage Sylveon deals is converted into HP for Sylveon’s own benefit.

Sylveon is ready to scorch opponents and kiss the competition good-bye. Frolic on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop to get Sylveon’s Unite license today!

Mamoswine Mashes Its Way into Pokémon UNITE on September 29th, 2021. Mamoswine is a tank of a Pokémon that's ready to freeze opponents in their tracks.

Mamoswine Mashes Its Way into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to ice out the competition in Pokémon UNITE, as Mamoswine is now available to join your team. This powerhouse Pokémon is a Melee Defender, and it’s ready to carry its weight in any battle. This Pokémon begins each match as Swinub, and it evolves into Piloswine at Lv. 6 and Mamoswine at Lv. 10.

Mamoswine’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and leaving them frozen for a short time when it hits. In addition, Mamoswine’s basic attacks deal increased damage for a short time to opposing Pokémon it has frozen with one of its moves. Furthermore, due to Mamoswine’s Ability, Thick Fat, every time the Pokémon deals damage, its Defense and Sp. Defense are increased for a short time (up to three times), and when Mamoswine uses Ice Shard, Icicle Crash, or Ice Fang, its next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. If any of those three moves creates a freezing area of effect inside an ally goal zone, it decreases the goal-scoring speed of opposing Pokémon inside that goal zone.

Now let’s look at Mamoswine’s available moves.

Mamoswine’s Moves

At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Swinub can learn Ice Shard and Tackle. Ice Shard is a ranged attack that hurls three chunks of ice at a designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. Tackle is a dash attack that has Swinub rush recklessly in a designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and throwing them.

When Swinub reaches Lv. 6 and evolves into Piloswine, Ice Shard can be upgraded into one of two moves—Icicle Crash or Ice Fang.

Icicle Crash is an area attack in which Piloswine drops icicles on a designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. The final icicle shatters after a set amount of time or when hit by Piloswine’s other moves or boosted attacks, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen. This attack can later be upgraded to increase its damage.

Ice Fang uses Piloswine’s cold-infused fangs to throw the opposing Pokémon that’s closest to Piloswine, dealing damage and leaving the Pokémon frozen for a short time. Piloswine can then choose a direction to slam the thrown Pokémon forward or backward, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen for a short time. This attack can be upgraded to increase the area of effect.

At Lv. 8, Tackle can be evolved into one of two moves—High Horsepower or Earthquake.

High Horsepower is a dash attack that causes Piloswine to rush recklessly in a designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and shoving them. Piloswine then stomps its feet, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them unable to act for a short time. The move can be upgraded to increase Piloswine’s rushing speed and the length of time opposing Pokémon are left unable to act.

The other move, Earthquake, has Piloswine leap in a designated direction and land forcefully, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and pulling them toward Piloswine. The move can be upgraded to decrease the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when the move hits and increase the move’s pulling power.

Mamoswine’s Unite Move, Mammoth Mash

To truly crush the opposition, make use of Mamoswine’s Unite Move, Mammoth Mash, which it learns at Lv. 10. This area attack has Mamoswine jump to a designated location and become immune to hindrances. Mamoswine then repeatedly stomps the ground, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time with each stomp. The final stomp throws opposing Pokémon in the area of effect.

Mamoswine is ready to stomp the competition and defend your team. Crash on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop to get Mamoswine’s Unite license now.

A message from the UNITE team!

Since the release of Pokémon UNITE on Nintendo Switch™, the team has enjoyed reading through all of the experiences our players have had during their adventures on Aeos Island. The topics, the details, the strategies—there’s so much even we’ve learned about our game by listening to the conversations our players have been having. Every piece of feedback has been valuable to us, whether it was constructive criticism or complimentary. We’re proud to have created an experience that has resulted in so much enthusiasm, particularly as we invite a new audience to the world of UNITE with tomorrow’s mobile launch of the game.

For both new and returning players, we’re thrilled to share some of the game updates that tomorrow also brings:

  • Full cross-platform play and account linking across mobile devices and Nintendo Switch. Link an account, and play with the same account across both platforms.
  • New in-game events in which you can get super item enhancers that can upgrade a held item to grade 30. We’ve also made it easier for all Trainers to get item enhancers.
  • New held items to introduce fresh strategies.
  • The introduction of Unite squads, allowing Trainers to team up with squadmates.
  • A second battle pass, which will feature all-new cosmetic items, including new Holowear with special visual effects.
  • The rollout of some limited Spectator Mode features.
  • Support for multiple new languages.

We’ll continue to add more playable Pokémon and make balance adjustments to both Pokémon and the maps. Trainers can anticipate new battle passes, themed events, and other compelling content to make Pokémon UNITE even more fun and rewarding. Additionally, we’re developing a new mode of play designed to level the playing field for all Trainers, regardless of their held items’ grades.

We’re dedicated to making every Unite Battle as fun and engaging as possible, and the changes above represent some of the many ways we’re working toward that goal. We look forward to continuing to hear our players’ reception and feedback as we work with all of you toward an experience that all fans can enjoy. Thank you all for your continued support and interest in Pokémon UNITE.

See you on Aeos Island, Trainers.

Blastoise Has Blasted into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to make a big splash in Pokémon UNITE, as Blastoise is now available to join your team. This popular Pokémon is a Ranged Defender, and it’s sure to provide some useful support for your squad. This Pokémon begins each match as Squirtle, but it will evolve into Wartortle at Lv. 5, and Blastoise at Lv. 9. You can even make your Blastoise look positively fancy with its available Fashionable Style Holowear.

Blastoise’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing continual damage and decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when it hits. Its Ability, Torrent, causes its Attack and Sp. Atk to increase when the Pokémon is at half HP or less. Now, let’s take a look at Blastoise’s available attacks.

Blastoise’s Moves
At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Squirtle can learn Water Gun, a ranged attack that hits your opponent with a shot of water, shoving them back and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. It can also learn Skull Bash, a dash attack that fiercely rams an opposing Pokémon a temporarily leaves it unable to act.

When Squirtle reaches Lv. 5, Water Gun can evolve into one of two attacks. Hydro Pump is a ranged attack that blasts out a huge volume of water, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and shoving them when it hits. The attack can be further upgraded to increases the damage it deals. Water Spout is an area effect attack that sprays water toward the designated location, decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon in the area of effect for a short time. Like Hydro Pump, it can be upgraded to increase its damage.

Reaching Lv. 7 allows you to evolve Skull Bash into one of two attacks. Surf is a dash attack that has the user charge forward on a wave, shoving opposing Pokémon and leaving them unable to act for a short amount of time. The user becomes immune to hinderances while using this move and can jump in a designated direction once this attack ends. You can even upgrade Surf to grant a shield when the move hits. Rapid Spin is a buff move that causes Wartortle to spin rapidly, changing the mechanics of its basic attacks as well as its Hydro Pump and Water Spout moves. An upgrade to Rapid Spin move reduces the damage Wartortle receives while using the move.

Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon
To inflict some real damage, take advantage of Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon, which it learns at Lv. 9. This melee attack has the user spout water to attack while it spins. Any opposing Pokémon caught in the attack’s large range area will be thrown. Not only that, but the attack also grants Blastoise a shield to protect it from incoming attacks.

Blastoise is ready to shell out some punishment and defend your team. You can surf on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop and get Blastoise’s Unite license now.
