Pokemon Unite Tier List (2023)

From best to worst, stand united!

Pokémon Unite features a diverse cast of Pokémon spread into five different roles of play styles. Each Pokémon has unique moves and abilities to further stand out amongst their group. As a result, some Pokémon will outshine one another, and after the first major patch, there are several nerfs and buffs across the roster. I knew this patch would also shift the balance, making certain Pokémon outshine others.

All Pokemon in Pokémon Unite, Ranked

We ranked all Pokemon in Pokemon Unite according to how well each currently performs in the game compared to other Pokemon on the current Pokémon Unite Roster. Note that the creators keep the game alive by constantly adding new Pokemon, which shifts the existing balance, so check back often to stay updated with the latest changes.

Best S-Tier Pokemon in Pokémon Unite

Lucario

Lucario was always a top pick, and with bug fixes aimed at its abilities, Power-Up Punch, and Bone Fix getting addressed, it remains a solid choice, especially for beginners. Its endurance is a little on the low side, but it still remains a top-tier pick for Speedsters.

Mega Mewtwo X

Mega Mewtwo X is one scary brawler that works by building up durability by attacking its enemies. This ability allows him to tank and hit hard simultaneously, and it is my favorite pick in the current meta. Even after the emergency nerfs, it still comes out as one of the top all-rounders in Pokémon Unite.

Best A Tier Pokemon in Pokémon Unite

Crustle

Crustle was untouched in the patch and so relied on the merits it started with. Its defensive abilities and ability to control the battlefield make it a great choice. It gives you awesome utility with its Rock Tomb, which traps enemies and sets them up for your teammates., making it a great Pokémon for crowd control.

Absol

Absol is something of a double-edged sword. The Pokémon can excel in the right hands but, more often than not, will suffer as its play style can be hard to master. However, the skill ceiling (and rewards) are potentially huge. This Pokémon has excellent mobility and an outstanding attack statistic, making it a good choice for offensive players. Absol was solid, to begin with, but to most players' surprise, it got buffed in the patch.

Best B Tier Pokemon in Pokémon Unite

Wigglytuff

Wigglytuff is a support Pokémon that received huge buffs to its Defense, Sp. Def, and Hp. It also received significant buffs for its Double Slap, Sing, and Dazzling Gleam abilities. It can shield allies from damage, making it a valuable addition to any team.

Snorlax

While Snorlax was untouched in the patch, he remains one of the better choices of defender thanks to how bulky the Pokémon is and its ability to control the battlefield. It's a great starter Pokémon, thanks to its immense girth, which makes it forgiving to beginner mistakes, and other players won't be able to push you around as easily.

Gardevoir

Being the first DLC Pokémon means Gardevoir has had less time to be explored. As a result, the Pokémon does well against players unfamiliar with its abilities and generally packs a punch. It primarily relies on its Future Sight and has the power to teleport around the field.

Best C Tier Pokemon in Pokémon Unite

Venusaur

Despite Venasaur's kit receiving a buff, the grass/poison Pokémon offers little reason to pick it. Due to lacking much utility and versatility, another choice would be better unless Venusaur is your favorite Pokémon. Despite having a good range, you will still have to evolve it fully to make the most use of its utilities, and even then, it gets outranked by other choices of Pokémon out there.

Pikachu

Despite its speed and damage output, Pikachu remains something of a glass cannon. Players who can effectively get in and out with the Pokémon will find success, but other Pokémon may work better.

Garchomp

Garchomp suffers in the early game because evolving it requires the player to hit level six, unlike most Pokémon. As a result, you can fall behind easily. While Garchomp is quite powerful when fully evolved, there are other Pokémon that can do the same with more ease.

Best D Tier Pokemon in Pokémon Unite

Mr. Mime

Mr. Mime struggles with playing a combination of two roles. On the plus side, the shields and barriers can be used to your team's advantage, but careless misplacement can hurt your team as much as opponents. This Pokémon was added more as a joke than a real competitor, earning it a place in D Tier due to many other choices that work better in its role.

Eldegoss

Eldegoss is a support-type Pokémon that desperately needs some love. You may see pro players use it, but due to its excellent Cotton Cloud Crash ability, it deals AoE damage and heals your allies. However, going hard support is a thankless job and not optimal for solo queuing.
