As mentioned before, in Pokemon Unite, the role of a Pokemon thoroughly depends on what class it is. The tier list above shows which Pokemon are, in general, players should choose to play. While making such a list, you will have to go through a lot of factors. Depending on your personal preference, skill level, and strategy, the list could change from player to player.
Concluding that, so which Pokemon is one of the best Pokemon to play as in Pokemon Unite? This question has multiple answers, in fact, due to different classes of Pokemon. The fan-favorite Pikachu is a powerful and easy to master character, which is helpful in almost every situation in the game thanks to its strong crowd-control. Eldegoss is the best healer in the game, and it does a small amount of damage. It has excellent mobility and does good burst damage.
Zeraora is free to claim character in Pokemon Unite right now, and it has made it to our S rank set of characters. It has excellent mobility and does good burst damage. The best part about Zeraora is that it can paralyze enemies and generate HP when away from battles. The last on the list, Gengar is one of the best speedsters who does excellent burst damage. The A and B rank Pokemons are fantastic too, and their sets of skills can outrun S rank Pokemons. The C rank Pokemons are the last choice of Pokemons as they are the most inferior Pokemons compared to all others.
Best All-rounder Pokémon
- S-tier: None
- A-tier: Lucario
- B-tier: Machamp, Garchomp
- C-tier: Charizard
All-Rounder Pokemons are what the name suggests. They can do both offence and defence when needed. All of these Pokemon can sustain a good amount of damage and do great in return. When you pair these with an attacker or Speedster Pokemon, it could become a deadly combo. For now, no Pokemon is the best All-Rounder гидра Pokemon. However, Lucario is a great choice when it comes to all-rounders. It starts as Lucario rather than Riolu. With its attacks and stats combined, Lucario is a Pokemon that can give you an edge during a battle.
Best Attacker Pokémon
- S-tier: Pikachu
- A-tier: Alolan Ninetales, Cinderace, Gardevoir
- B-tier: Cinderace, Greninja
- C-tier: Venusaur
There are, in fact, seven attackers out of the 21 playable characters in the game. The best attacker is Pikachu, and although it doesn’t evolve during the game, it is still pretty great to use. Attackers don’t have great endurance but have the most significant damage. Pikachu is the best to get quick kills in the game with its chain of attacks. The rest of Pokemon are great too, but among them, Pikachu makes it to the top.

Best Defender Pokémon
- S-tier: Crustle
- A-tier: None
- B-tier: None
- C-tier: Snorlax, Slowbro
Defenders can be an excellent class in Pokemon Unite. They can keep teammates alive as well as provide that slight advantage during a fight. The best defender amongst all other Pokemons is Crustle. Apart from all others in the list, Crustle can act as a proper tank when you control and defend points. It is just the perfect example of being a defensive tank and easily defeats the purpose of Snorloax and Slowbro.
Best Speedster Pokémon
- S-tier: Absol, Zeraora
- A-tier: Gengar
- B-tier: Talonflame
Speedsters are much like attackers, but their ability to quickly escape a situation makes them essential to a lineup. Speedsters can not do massive damage, although they can move around the map and give teammates a helping hand when they are under attack. There are, in fact, two speedsters who are best in the game. One of them includes Zeraora, which you can redeem for free in Pokemon Unite. The other Pokemon is Absol. Gengar is also great as a speedster. The only Pokemon that is not worth using is Talonflame.
Best Supporter Pokémon
- S-tier: None
- A-tier: Eldegoss
- B-tier: Wigglytuff
- C-tier: Mr. Mime
The supporter is a class in Pokemon Unite that cannot engage alone. Saying that supporters can be very effective if paired with Attacker or All-Rounder classes Pokemons. Supporter classes can buff and help their teammates, giving them a massive advantage in battle. The best among the few supporter class is Eldegoss. Thanks to its healing ability, it can be handy in every fight in Pokemon Unite. Despite not doing much damage, it can also boost its teammate’s attack power to help battle. Apart from Eldgegoss, all others are useful too in battles, but Eldegoss comes at the top.
