Pokemon UNITE Tier List for October 2021

Best Top Lane Pokemon in Pokemon Unite for October 2021

The top lane is often assigned for Attacker or Defender type Pokemon. However, depending on your team’s strategy, other roles may work here as well. The goal for this lane is to be strong enough to be the first to take down Rotom which provides a great advantage to your team.

Mr. Mime

An offensive support type Pokemon that focuses on delivering deadly blows to enemies as well as preventing the enemy from roaming freely around the map. Mr. Mime utilizes deadly trap placements to restrict enemy movement across the map. Mr. Mime also offers a few crowd control abilities that can stun and knock up enemies.

Sylveon

This Pokemon used to be "S" tier due to its amazing damage potential. With the recent nerf, Sylveon is still quite dangerous but is outrageously vulnerable when roaming alone. Make sure to stay close to your allies so they can help you survive skirmishes.

Best Bottom (Bot) Lane Pokemon in Pokemon Unite for October 2021

The Bot lane is best suited for Attacks, All-Rounders, and Supporters as this lane offers a ton of experience that can help Pokemon evolve faster. Teamfights usually happens a lot in the bot lane which is why most of the time there will be two Pokemon assigned in this lane to farm as fast as possible before any fights ensue.

Lucario

Lucario’s dueling power in the early stages of the match is quite lackluster. However, he does shine the brightest in the bottom lane due to his fast clearing speed when taking on neutral mobs. His high mobility and high offensive and defensive stats allow Lucario to evolve faster and secure points for his team even without killing opposing Pokemon.

Venusaur

This Pokemon’s life-draining ability makes it one of the most annoying Pokemon to go up against. Its capabilities of easily taking down enemies while keeping itself healthy through its Giga Drain ability makes Venusaur perfect in the bottom lane, where team fights usually tend to occur quite often.

Best Jungle Lane Pokemon in Pokemon Unite for October 2021

The jungle lane, also known as the mid lane is perfect for Speedsters and All Rounders that can easily roam around and help other lanes while also farming for experience. Defeating the neutral mobs Ludicolo & Boufallant will also give you a powerful buff to help improve your clears and ganks.

Gengar

A speedster who relies on applying deadly debuffs to enemies before unleashing relentless attacks on its victims. As a Pokemon with high mobility and crowd control capabilities, Gengar works perfectly in the Jungle lane so it can free roam and help other lanes who need assistance.

Cindrace

This Pokemon relies heavily on maintaining its distance from enemies while dealing damage by throwing fireballs. However, this Pokemon is quite vulnerable and can easily be knocked out when enemies get the chance to suppress it.

Considering how Pokemon UNITE is still new, players can expect this tier list to expand further as new Pokemon are added and balance changes are implemented to the game. It will be interesting to see the different types of Pokemon that make their way to the ever-growing roster of Pokemon UNITE as we continue playing our favorite Pokemon MOBA.
