Pokémon Unite is one of the most popular 5v5 MOBA games based on Pokémon that is available for Nintendo and mobile devices. In Pokémon Unite, players get to choose Pokémon having unique abilities of their choice and train them to go against the opponents.

The goal is to beat the enemy Pokémon and collect and then deposit it into one of their opponents’ goal zones to score points. After the match time is over, the team with the higher number of points is the winner of the match.

Pokémon Unite features over 34 different Pokémon having different stats of difficulty, damage, mobility, and more. It could be a difficult task for players, especially beginners, to choose one of them.

In that case, we have ranked all the Pokémon from best to worst in different tiers, S being the strongest:

The S-Tier

The S-Tier has top of the line Pokémon. Although the developers nerfed Lucario, it wasn’t enough to drop the character from its throne. Players can also instantly pick Greninja and Hoopa in a game and not regret it.

  • Lucario (All-Rounder)
  • Greninja (Attacker)
  • Hoopa (Supporter)

The A-Tier

We have a few standout characters on the huge list of A-Tier Pokémon. Aegislash, Machamp, Cinderace and Pikachu are great picks. A-Tier characters have huge potential and are a few are as good as the S-Tier gods in the right hands.

  • Aegislash (All-Rounder)
  • Charizard (All-Rounder)
  • Alolan Ninetales (Attacker)
  • Machamp (All-Rounder)
  • Cinderace (Attacker)
  • Pikachu (Attacker)
  • Venusaur (Attacker)
  • Trevenant (Defender)
  • Slowbro (Defender)
  • Blastoise (Defender)
  • Gengar (Speedster)
  • Absol (Speedster)
  • Eldegoss (Supporter)
  • Blissey (Supporter)
  • Garchomp (All-Rounder)
  • Gardevoir (Attacker)
  • Greedent (Defender)
  • Talonflame (Speedster)
  • Zeraora (Speedster)
  • Wigglytuff (Supporter)

The B-Tier

The B-Tier has a decent set of Pokémon, which won’t disappoint the trainers. However, they are unreliable. It is best to pick them after judging the situation and team composition.

  • Tsareena  (All-Rounder)
  • Duraludon (Attacker)
  • Sylveon (Attacker)
  • Decidueye (Attacker)
  • Mamoswine (Defender)
  • Dragonite (All-Rounder)
  • Cramorant (Attacker)
  • Mr. Mime (Supporter)

The C-Tier

Unfortunately, Snorlax is alone in the C-Tier. The character struggles with the current moveset in the meta.

  • Snorlax (Defender)

It just doesn't do enough to turn the tide or even play its role as a defender.

The D-Tier

New Pokémon Azumarill needs a buff.

Azumarill needs a few patches in its way to come on the map. Crustle is arguably the worst defender in the game right now. We don’t recommend picking these characters at all.

  • Azumarill (All-Rounder)
  • Crustle (Defender)
