    Hi everyone!
    Pokémon Unite will be out soon (21st of this month).
    I'm planning this as a general discussion thread for the game.
    But rn I wanna know, if you are excited for this game.
    Are you planning to play this game on-day-one? Which Pokémon will you try out first? Are you going to have your first in-game experience with a group of friends or alone?

    I'm going to play this day-one and some friends agreed on joining me (if nothing prevents them from doing so).
    My first pick will probably be Crustle, because I really like tanky characters in PvP games.

    It's just okay. It requires you to have friends to play with. Or else you get stuck with people who make you lose

    I gotta ask you guys a few questions:
    • What do you think that Abra and Herdier as a catchable NPC wild Pokémon cannot evolve in Pokémon UNITE?
    • Why do you think that all Baby Pokémon, branched evolutions, regional forms (besides Alolan Vulpix and Ninetales replacing their Kantonian forms), Mega Evolutions, Dynamaxes, Gigantamaxes, an Ash-Greninja Bond Phenomenon, and Raichu (both Kantonian and Alolan) did not appear in Pokémon UNITE?
    Please let me know, thanks.:)

    This sounds like those weird questions-without-actual-answers a teacher asks the students to "tickle their minds" or some related bull but sure let's do it~!

    Abra: The entire shtick with Kadabra put that 'mon out of commission for a while, plus it's Abra itself which is known for its Teleport-spam…
    Herdier: The jungle mons seem to never evolve twice, so obviously Stoutland is out of the mix.
    Baby 'Mons: Dunno, some design choice and the fact 'ya have to breed 'em first in the actual games?
    Branched Evos: That would make the game even messier than it is rn, which might eventually happen but waaay further into development (e.g. Mobile Legends, another MOBA, only starded experimentin' with characters with branched skills two years after its launch, and even then said character wasn't officially released until 7 months later)
    Regional Forms: Again, dunno. Maybe 'cuz it'd be redundant if ya have both Kantonian and Alolan Ninetales?
    Megas, Daimax/Kyodaimax, Ash-Greninja: Again, maybe in the future, but UNITE is currently focused on expandin' its roster and balancing its characters. Seriously I think majority of people don't seem to understandhow damn hard it is to make games like these.
    Raichu: Pikachu is Pikachu. Need I say more?

    Now that that's over, I'm surprisingly lovin' Mystical Fire Sylveon, probably since my main in another game is quite similar in gameplay and I demolish people with 'im… Not as much in UNITE since Sylveon doesn't have much burst besides it plus CD items are currently limited to Shell Bell, but it's still quite fun watchin' attackers/speedsters melting down to half or less~!

    Extremespeed Lucario is also enjoyable, arguably the freestyle king of the game (anyone who approaches me doin' bees will face the wrath of dash-dash-dash-dash-dash ;) )

    I wish there'd be at least a mode where we buy items like a normal MOBA though, 'twould be fun to see how people adjust and adapt their builds in-battle~

    Also to hell with the tanks why are they so damn painful-

    Do you think that Dracovish will become a playable Pokémon for Pokémon UNITE because of its popularity in competitive play?

    Season 2 is providing some very interesting dilemmas that are certainly making the game more interesting.

    Still am THEE FROST FOX tho so that works

    What kind of dilemmas?
    Season 2 feels exactly like season 1 to me

    They seem to be aiming more for the generally popular Pokémon that have the cute appeal for the most part. I dont expect Dracovish to make it just yet anyway.

    Crike, that's awesome, congrats~! Haven't really touched Ranked mode since I got into Veteran, though I've been experimentin' a lot with Solar Beam Venusaur because damn, after Talonflame's Fly that laser of his is the best skill to steal objectives~
