Roles & Battle Type System
Unlike core Pokémon games, Pokémon Unite's battle system focuses on Battle types rather than Elemental types. During each battle, Pokémon can grow as they fight and can even temporarily evolve.
There are five different Battle Types:
- Attacker: Has low Endurance and excels at dealing heavy ranged damage to opponents.
- Alolan Ninetales
- Speedster: Has high Mobility and Offense and excels at making quick attacks and scoring points.
- All-Rounder: Has balanced Offense and Endurance and are highly tenacious fighters.
- Defender: Has high Endurance and excels at protecting allies and hindering opponents.
- Supporter: Provides team support by inflicting status conditions on opponents and by healing allies.
- Mr. Mime
