Pokémon Unite update includes changes to Charizard, Talonflame, and more
A new update is coming for Pokémon MOBA Pokémon Unite that will make balance changes to a number of Pokémon.
According to the official patch notes, Charizard, Talonflame, Venusaur, Absol, and Wigglytuff have all been buffed in various ways. While the HP restoration of Eldegoss’ Cotton Guard has been decreased, Cinderace’s attack has been reduced, and Gengar’s Hex move has been downgraded.
The update is scheduled to go live tomorrow, August 4th. Take a look at the full patch notes here.
The free-to-start game was released last month and sees two teams of five players battling it out to score the most points. Defeat wild and opposing Pokémon to level up, evolve, and gather energy. Deposit the energy in the opposing team’s goal to score.
Pokémon Unite is available now on Nintendo Switch and will be coming to mobile in September.
