Pokémon Unite: This new attacker comes into play today

Pokémon Unite

The MOBA game Pokémon Unite only came out last week. But that doesn't prevent the TiMi Studio development team from getting supplies right now. With Guardevoir (known in English as Gardevoir) there is a new attacker to choose from, who is supposed to provide a little more variety in the game and combat.

Guardevoir has some very interesting skills. With the help of "Synchronize" it is possible for him to transfer the debuffs he has suffered to the attacking opponent. For example, if Guardevoir has been slowed down, the person opposite is also a little slower for a short time. Furthermore, thanks to "Teleport" he can teleport over shorter distances, this ability he can expand to "Psyshock" or "Seer". He also has a ranged attack called "Confusion". His unite move "Fairy Singularity" is particularly interesting. This curves the space for a short time at the previously targeted point and creates a kind of black hole in miniature format, which attracts all creatures in the vicinity and causes some damage.

Incidentally, more new additions to Pokémon Unite should be on the plan in the near future. If you believe the current rumors and leaks, then this includes the beefy Turtok, which is located in the category of defenders. What skills he has, however, has not yet been determined, as has his release date.

Gardevoir is the first post-launch addition to Pokemon Unite's character roster.

What Is Gardevoir?

A patch launched overnight that added various bug fixes to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Unite, alongside a few shop updates and necessary balancing tweaks for the Charizard character. Yet the headline attraction of this update was a new playable fighter named Gardevoir.

Humanoid in proportions, Gardevoir is a fairy-type Pokemon, which means that it is just as powerful with its magic as it is elegant in appearance. First introduced in Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire (two games that were released simultaneously in 2003), the creature has a suite of psychic abilities at its disposal, as well as the power to manipulate black holes.

'Pokemon Unite': Gardevoir Stats and Moveset

Gardevoir slots into the existing Pokemon Unite character roster as yet another ranged attacker, similar to Pikachu or Cinderace.

According to his profile on the fighter select screen, these are current Gardevoir's stats:

  • Offense Rating: 4 ½ Stars.
  • Endurance Rating: 1 ½ Stars.
  • Mobility Rating: 1 ½ Stars.
  • Scoring Rating: 3 Stars.
  • Support Rating: 1 ½ Stars.

    As for its moveset, Gardevoir has the following abilities, many of which are themed around its psychic and space-warping powers.

  • Synchronize (Level 1): A passive ability effect that takes negative status effects that are cast against you (like decreased movement speed or 'damage-over-time' conditions) and reflects them back onto your assailant. In this scenario, you will still suffer the consequences of the original attack.
  • Confusion (Level 1): A straightforward ranged attack.
  • Teleport (Level 1): Enables you to warp to the designated area.
  • Psychoshock (Level 6): A teleportation-based attack that hits the targeted location three consecutive times.
  • Future Sight (Level 6): An alternative teleportation-based attack, that drops an explosive blast into the targeted area.
  • Psychic (Level 8): A ranged explosion that, upon detonation, decreases enemy movement speed.
  • Moonblast (Level 8): An attack that allows Gardevoir to fire projectiles while simultaneously backing away from opponents.
  • Unite Move — Fairy Singularity (Level 10): Acting like a gravity well, this move will draw opponents into a black hole and then inflict heavy damage upon them.

    'Pokemon Unite': How to Unlock Gardevoir

    To play as Gardevoir, you will need to unlock the fighter's 'Unite License.'
