Pokemon Unite had a wonderful beta period and is set to be fully released in just a short time.
The game is a 5v5 MOBA where players select a Pokemon to battle with their team against another. The goal is to defeat enemy Pokemon and deposit them into goal zones.
The side with the most points when the match timer runs out is the winner. With many creatures available in Pokemon Unite, players are keen to know who to main and who to avoid.

Pokemon Unite tier List
Pikachu is a brutal Attacker in Pokemon Unite, while Absol makes for an excellent Speedster type to deploy into battle.
Talonflame joins Absol in the Speedster category. Scoring points is their key and truly up to preference.
- Alolan Ninetales
Garchomp is an All-Rounder, described as a highly tenacious fighter. Gengar is a Speedster who can be a niche Pokemon Unite character.
Eldegoss and Wigglytuff work great as Supporter Pokemon. Cinderace and Alolan Ninetales wrap up the A Tier as solid Attackers.
- Mr. Mime
Slowbro and Snorlax are the two best Defender characters in Pokemon Unite. Lucario is an All-Rounder that is best suited for players who consider it a favorite.
Zeraora is a Speedster and very well may jump into a higher tier once the game releases. Lastly, Mr. Mime plays Support but doesn't quite match up to the other two Pokemon from that category.
It might be surprising to see some extremely popular Pokemon in the C Tier. They aren't awful, but the other choices have proven to be better thus far.
The Attackers, Venusaur, Greninja, and Cramorant, don't match up with Pikachu or Cinderace. Machamp and Charizard are All-Rounders, but with Garchomp in that category, they are far overshadowed.
Similar to the main series of Pokemon games, Crustle doesn't quite get the job done in Pokemon Unite. Playing a Defender in a MOBA takes a unique set of skills.
Many players like to dive in and attack in these types of games. Snorlax or Slowbro are much better options than the dull Rock/Bug-type that is Crustle.
