Pokémon Unite tier list – all characters ranked

Pokemon UNITE tier list

Pokémon Unite has quickly become one of the most hype Nintendo Switch launches of the month. Nobody could have imagined a Pokémon-based MOBA becoming so popular, but it’s a well-done game and quickly gaining a massive following. With so many Pokemon to choose from, you may be wondering what’s worth your time. Here’s our Pokemon Unite tier list guide, breaking down the best and worse Pokemon in the new MOBA.

As a disclaimer, remember that tier lists are totally subjective. There are certainly some Pokemon that are both overpowered and underpowered, but it all comes down to what you like to play. Another thing to keep in mind is that Nintendo will be nerfing and buffing Pokémon to change the meta and even things out in the future. For example, Zeraora is the best in the game right now, so it will likely receive a nerf in the coming days.

Remember to bookmark our Pokémon Unite tier list and check back often for updates. We’ll do our best to keep up with the changes and rearrange our tier list accordingly. Hopefully, this serves as a decent guide for knowing which Pokémon are worth the License purchase. If you are wondering what items to use, head on over to our Pokémon Unite builds, or have a look at the Pokémon stats to get a better look at their raw attack, defense, and health pools. Be sure to also check out the patch notes to stay up-to-date on what’s changing.
