Pokémon UNITE General Thread

It looks like espeon can be obtained for free on this next event. at least that'll save us some coins. Delphox is not until next month as we all know. i've been hoarding these coins for the new pokemon to release in the shop.

We need to start hoping for these balances, changes, and nerfs these days. They have to start listening to the player's feedback and taking the negative reviews more seriously. I don't see why they're not responding to the feedbacks the negative reviews.

All I know is that when they release new pokemon, they tend to get overpowered. The other part is that they buff old pokemon as well and that last buff on gengar was a mistake to make.

I dunno if they're gonna make any balances and nerfs by the time espeon releases. Duraludon is on the nerf list right now. It's just that the flash cannon is keeping opponents from scoring with that amount of attack radius.

Do we actually know if Espeon is free in Unite? I know the datamine shows it doesn't currently have an Aeos Coins cost and can only be bought with Aeos Gems, but I don't recall seeing an event where it could be given out for free? Either way it looks pretty neat and a fine addition to my current roster! That being said I really need to actually play some matches, haven't played a single one this season so far... Wonder if we get a balance patch with the Espeon update? I'm not sure what needs nerfs or buffs really, not to say the game is balanced but I think we just need a bit more time to see how things settle down.

Has anyone seen one of Spragel's latest videos on double jungling with Sylveon / Ninetales? I actually quite like how that works, it seemed like a neat concept that won some tournaments pretty recently! Everyone said Sylveon was weak and needed buffs and bam! It's winning tournaments, funny how that works. But I think if I ever do duo queue with folks that could be a cool strategy to try, although you'd run the risk that other players think the jungle is free to take since two people are in there.

Anyway I've been logging in every day for the current event because I really want the Eldegoss holowear, but I don't think I can buy it for another 6 days? Bit of a pain but what can you do.

i've been hoarding too much coins lately so I thought about getting all the unite licenses at this point after espeon releases since it's gonna be free to obtain like zeraora, hoopa, and tsareena so probably this will allow me to get the unite license achievement.

Anyway as for the the achievements, I don't get charizard's achievement at all. I was supposed to use a basic attack after using flamethrower so I dunno what i'm doing wrong so i'm just using flamethrower and then hit the opponents with basic attack after. I know i'm suppose to burn enough opponents with flamethrower and hit'em with basic attack to make it count so i don't know any other way or alternatives to this.

To answer my own question... we now know Espeon is free in Pokemon Unite! Albeit temporarily, so it will follow in a similar vein to Greedent and Hoopa. Guess I'll get back into playing Unite from the 16th onwards since I regret not partaking in the Hoopa event and getting that lad for free, but c'est la vie.

I can go at a Holowear ticket spree at any moment thanks to exploiting the weekend's triple BP boost.
How so?

Well you're gonna have to start doing missions and participate the events more often. I've been very active in the game so it's not like i'll miss out everything. If you missed hoopa, well who knows that if he will be obtainable again like zeraora does when the mobile version was released.

I'm starting to think that they need to ban idle / afk players from the matches permanently. These type of players are responsible for holding the team back and they shouldn't be coming back to the matches. whatever excuse they have such as disconnecting and pressing the home button on purpose, it's unacceptable. They can't just do matches with low battery if they're not playing by the dock or USB cable (switch) or AC adapter (both switch and mobile) and unstable internet connection. they should know that the game is highly recommended to be played with a stable internet connection and the device's battery being charged.

Today is Espeon's release day, but unless you're forking out your Aeos Gems to buy the character you're probably not playing them! People are a bit perplexed at how long it will take to actually unlock the character - anywhere between 6-10 days of playing, assuming you're doing the daily missions. However, there's also a game-breaking bug with ranked right now where players are sometimes being placed in matches incorrectly and therefore winning / losing games they shouldn't. The developers are aware of this so hopefully it's fixed soon? But for now maybe avoid ranked. Since I don't really like quick matches nor am I going into the cesspit that is standard mode... I'll either risk ranked or just leave it until it is confirmed to be fixed. That will impact players' ability to unlock Espeon, although you have 27 days I believe to obtain enough new event currency to get them so not the end of the world!

There was no balance patch alongside it so not much to speak of there, and I'm not too sure what people think of Espeon. I believe they're considered pretty damn strong! Whether or not that means busted beyond belief remains to be seen.

Perhaps you're referring to this, but that explained why the other 2 ppl that i've teamed with that didn't contribute for the team in the ranked matches. I don't get why the game gets buggy and glitchy most of the time, but these issues can be serious enough.

I already struggled with these ranked matches a lot and teammates haven't been working and doing a lot lately even with my friends. It's just that these matches are just bad (or terrible).

Yeah the update didn't even do any balances, changes, and nerfs which we need very bad.

I don't mind playing with you guys. It's just that me and my friends are seeking out good players. My friend has like 2 ppl that are good for her, but for me, it's not easy in terms of performance.

Well looks like that bug is fixed. They should at least test the contents out before releasing these updates. We always have to bump into these bugs and glitches and we don't even know what's going on with the game.

I had a match where a Pikachu used its UNITE move five times. I'm not sure that's possible unless every other teammate really let them go wild on all wild Pokemon.
I believe it only takes 90 seconds for Pikachu to recharge its Unite move without influences from other factors? Wild Pokemon grant 5% Unite recharge back, scoring goals grants 10%, Energy Amplifier also impacts things - with even a teeny bit of luck Pikachu could probably spam its Unite move every minute without any problems!

Anyway it's been a few days, the bugs have been fixed, and Espeon has seen enough play that folks are starting to make up their minds on it! It is... pretty average, which in this game means it's rather underwhelming. I suspect it'll be like Aegislash where it's got niche uses until it gets a buff that pushes it into popular usage. Got plenty of time to try and get it for free too, so it'll make a fine addition to my roster at any rate!
