Decidueye is being advertised as a ranged attacker, making this character a good fit for those who prefer to keep their distance from enemy players. Decidueye resembles a hooded archer, which is reflected in its moves that involve shooting arrows at enemies among whilwinds of leaves. As with most new character releases, balancing may be necessary post-launch, so players can expect an update within the coming days.
Decidueye is available today in Pokémon UNITE on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. The game is free to download on the Nintendo eShop, App Store and Google Play Store, so take a chance if you're thinking about trying it out!
Unity is the key to success!
Pokémon UNITE is the first MOBA game in the Pokémon franchise. It's free to play, has unique customization options for both players and Pokémon, and features some of the most popular Pokémon in battles between teams of five.
