Best Starter Pokemon in Pokémon Unite Roster

Best Starters Pokemon Unite

Here are the best starter Pokemon to choose in Pokémon Unite Roster:

  • Pikachu – Best Attacker Pokemon
  • Eldegoss – Best Supporter Pokemon
  • Talonflame – Best High Agile Pokemon
  • Snorlax – Best Tank / Defender Pokemon
  • Charizard – All-Rounder Pokemon

Let’s look at each of them in bit detail below:


Pokemon UNITE Pikachu

Considered as the best attack starter Pokemon if you are looking to become the main damage dealer in the team. Pikachu deals high damage, but at the same time is extremely easy to use. You can deal with your attacks at a safe distance as you will have good range radius to attack.


Pokemon UNITE Eldegoss

Even though Eldegoss doesn’t deal much attack damage, it is the best starter Pokemon on the UNITE roster for any player looking to be the support member of the team. Eldegoss can be considered as the only true Healer Pokémon in the starter roster. You will have balanced offensive and defensive attack sets with Eldegoss in your hand.

Talonflame (Best Agile Starter in Pokemon Unite)

Pokemon UNITE Talonflame

The only Pokémon to become a favorite for new players with just a few matches. Talonflame is the only high mobility starter Pokémon, meaning you can get in combat, deal damage and quickly escape from it. In right hands, Talonflame grants fast kills when supported by other Pokemon. Playing solo is impossible for Talonflame due to low health. But when accompanied by other Pokemon, Talonflame can even charge and kill opponents fairly quickly. Talonflame is a must-try if high mobility is your priority.


Pokemon UNITE Snorlax

Snorlax can be considered as the best Tank you get in the early game. You can make Snorlax go in front of taking in all enemy attacks, while your teammates can deal damage to opponents. Snorlax is perfect at crowd control. Snorlax doesn’t deal as much damage we would like to, but the ability to push away foes is a much-appreciated addition to the abilities list. The best way to use Snorlax is by making him bait for opponents. This will initiate attacks from opponents, and this is when Talonflame or others can go in for a quick kill.


Pokemon UNITE Charizard

Charizard is one of the most well-balanced, all-rounder Pokémon you can get in the starting roster. Even though the damage dealt is just average, Charizard’s unite moves are really strong and as a cherry on top, they recharge really fast. The only drawback is that you need to evolve from Charmander to Charmeleon and then to Charizard within a battle, which might take a bit of time. But Charizard will become a powerful unit by the final phases of the battle.
