Which Pokémon are the strongest in Pokémon UNITE? We ranked the entire roster for you in our tier list!

Pokémon UNITE has taken over gaming by storm. The new MOBA was released on Wednesday for the Nintendo Switch. Here is our tier list for UNITE. Updated as of September 17.

S Tier: Blastoise, Wigglytuff, Cinderace, Snorlax & Lucario

Blastoise is the newest kid on the block and he’s been settling in nicely. So nicely that he jumps straight into our highest tier. With his great damage output paired with his natural tankiness, he’s a top pick right now. The same can still be said for other bulky, supportive Pokémon, such as Wigglytuff and Snorlax, who are seemingly mainstays at the top. Cinderace remains the best all-round Pokémon who can mostly do it all, while Lucario still shines as a speedy, ganking jungler.

A Tier: Blissey, Cramorant, Zeraora, Greninja, Eldegoss, Alolan Ninetales & Machamp

Things remained mostly the same in our A tier throughout September. Support Pokémon such as Blissey and Eldegoss remain great options, while ranged attackers such as Cramorant and Alolan Ninetales can provide solid damage throughout. Zeraora remains a strong option, but needs to be enabled and requires quite a bit of skill from the player controlling it, while Greninja and Machamp remain solid offensive all-round options throughout.

B Tier: Pikachu, Absol, Crustle, Gardevoir, Mr. Mime, Gengar, Slowbro, Talonflame & Venusaur

It seems like Pokémon such as Pikachu, Absol and Gardevoir are just destined for the B tier as they can be useful in the right hands, but are just not as powerful as other choices or haven’t carved out enough of a niche. The same goes for supportive and tanky Pokémon in this tier, such as Mr. Mime and Slowbro. While a Pokémon like Talonflame needs a lot of resources to shine. Venusaur and Gengar finally are just lacking in power now, and they’re often too predictable.

C Tier: Charizard, Garchomp

Will we ever see these two anywhere else but C-tier? Both Pokémon suffer from the same thing: slow-scaling hard-hitters in a meta that favors either speedy or early game Pokémon. That still hasn’t changed for either Charizard nor Garchomp.
