Harvest the power of the Verdant Pokémon as you cut through your opponents’ defenses on Aeos Island. Grow your Pokémon roster with Leafeon in Pokémon UNITE! Like Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Sylveon, the Verdant Pokémon begins each match as Eevee before it evolves into Leafeon during battle. Eevee’s other Evolutions are either Attackers or Defenders, but Leafeon arrives on Aeos Island with some extra pep in its step as Pokémon UNITE’s latest Speedster.
Zip around the battlefield as this Grass-type Pokémon using either Aerial Ace or Leaf Blade before hitting hard with Chlorophyll-boosted attacks or landing the decisive blow with Solar Blade. You can obtain Leafeon for 13,000 Aeos coins or 575 Aeos gems at the Unite Battle Committee shop. Leafeon will only be obtainable with Aeos gems for the first seven days of its release.
Read on to learn more about everything Leafeon has to offer and to pick up a few tips before soaking up the sun on Aeos Island.
Ability: Run Away (Eevee) - When Eevee is not in combat, its movement speed is slightly increased. Ability: Chlorophyll (Leafeon) - When Leafeon is not in tall grass, its Chlorophyll gauge charges. When the Chlorophyll gauge is full, Leafeon has its movement speed increased.
If a basic attack is performed when Leafeon’s Chlorophyll gauge is full, the entire gauge is consumed and Leafeon’s next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. This boosted attack deals additional damage and decreases the movement speed of opposing Pokémon it hits.
Lv. 1 & 2 Moves
Swift - Eevee shoots star-shaped rays, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon they hit.
Quick Attack - Eevee moves quickly in the designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it makes contact with along the way.
Lv. 4 Moves
Razor Leaf - Leafeon launches five sharp-edged leaves in the designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon they hit before sticking into the ground for a short time. If Razor Leaf is used again, the leaves return to Leafeon and deal damage to opposing Pokémon they hit along the way. If the leaves are returned to Leafeon after a set amount of time has passed since they stuck into the ground, they deal increased damage. If all five leaves hit one Pokémon, Leafeon is granted a shield. Razor Leaf can be upgraded to strengthen the effect of the shield it grants.
Solar Blade - Leafeon starts gathering light and filling a blade with the light’s energy. If Solar Blade is used again after Leafeon has started gathering light, Leafeon brings the blade down, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits. The longer the blade is filled with light energy, the more damage Solar Blade deals. When Leafeon’s Chlorophyll gauge is full, the cooldown for the next use of Solar Blade is reduced, and when the move is used, the blade is brought down immediately and deals maximum damage. Solar Blade can be upgraded to reduce the damage Leafeon takes while filling the blade with light energy.
Lv. 6 Moves
Aerial Ace - Leafeon moves with speed and slashes, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits. Leafeon’s next basic attack after using Aerial Ace deals increased damage. A maximum of two uses can be kept in reserve for Aerial Ace. Aerial Ace can be upgraded to decrease the time it takes to store one of its uses.
Leaf Blade - Leafeon dashes and then spins while slashing around itself with sharp leaves, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits. If the outer ring of Leaf Blade’s area of effect hits opposing Pokémon, it deals increased damage, decreases the opposing Pokémon’s movement speed, and charges Leafeon’s Chlorophyll gauge. Leaf Blade can be upgraded to reduce its cooldown when the outer ring of the area of effect deals damage to multiple opponents simultaneously.
Leafeon’s Unite Move, Emerald Two-Step
Leafeon leaps at the designated opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to it and decreasing its movement speed. After that, Leafeon leaps up and lands with force, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. Those opposing Pokémon take more damage the closer they are to the center of the area of effect.
Strong Against: Decidueye - Melee Pokémon often struggle against Ranged Attackers like Decidueye, but Melee Speedsters can put on pressure in the blink of an eye—and Leafeon is no different. Aerial Ace, Leaf Blade, and Emerald Two-Step all allow Leafeon to close the gap against Decidueye as Leafeon deals damage with its basic attacks and either Razor Leaf or Solar Blade. Leafeon evolves from Eevee at Lv. 4, giving the Verdant Pokémon a distinct advantage in the early game against experience-hungry Pokémon like Decidueye. Leafeon can easily keep opposing Pokémon trying to evolve away from wild Pokémon on the top and bottom paths and in the central area, as well as keep them from scoring at their goal zones.
Weak Against: Snorlax - Leafeon’s speed and damage output are powerful but only when Leafeon can actually move. Snorlax is one of Pokémon UNITE’s most immaculate Defenders when it comes to protecting lower-durability teammates from Speedsters thanks to its powerful hindrances. Snorlax’s Block stops Leafeon from zipping past the Sleeping Pokémon while giving Snorlax’s allies the chance to launch a counterattack. Similarly, Heavy Slam can throw Leafeon and give Snorlax’s allies time to land another hindrance and shut down the Verdant Pokémon. It’s probably best if Leafeon avoids Snorlax in team fights, but waiting out the cooldowns of Block and Heavy Slam might provide a large enough window to knock out a key target.
