Big Pokémon UNITE Patch coming August 4 – Features Charizard buffs & Eldegoss nerfs

One of the first Pokémon UNITE patches is set to arrive on August 4 and there are some Pokémon that’ll receive buffs and nerfs.

The update features about half of the playable roster of Pokémon and aside from a ton of bug fixes, which is to be expected from a young MOBA such as Pokémon UNITE, a lot of buffs and nerfs came through as well, meaning the meta in the game might be seeing a little bit of a shakeup.

Some of the most important changes are the ones to Charizard, who went from underwhelming to actually usable, while Pokémon such as Eldegoss, who were a bit too prevalent, saw some pretty big nerfs. Other Pokémon that were low in usage as they weren’t all that strong, such as Venusaur and Wigglytuff, got buffs across the board.
