Battle Updates

Changes have been made to some Pokémon stats and moves to adjust the balance of Unite Battles.

Central Area Zoroark has been dominating the early stages of the Unite Battles due to its high mobility, damage, and recovery. Night Slash’s damage and healing have been nerfed, making it less likely to knock out opponents under goals.

Night Slash - Damage: 15% decrease. Cooldown: 8 sec. → 9 sec. HP recovery: 20% decrease

The Superpower+ → Smack Down → Superpower+ combo relied on the Muscle Gauge reaching max, granting full cooldown reduction for Smack Down+. This combo was almost a guaranteed KO, making Buzzwole a 1v1 beast that was nearly impossible to duel. Superpower and Smack Down have been nerfed, requiring several basic attacks to fill the Muscle Gauge for the second Superpower attempt.

Superpower - Cooldown: 7.5 sec. → 8.5 sec.
Superpower+ The muscle gauge reaching its maximum will reduce the cooldown by 3s instead of the full cooldown.
Smack Down - Muscle gauge increments per hit: 2 → 1
Smack Down+ Muscle gauge increments per hit: 3 → 2

Mewtwo (Mega Mewtwo Y):
The special attack growth has been nerfed, so that Mewtwo's damage will scale less in the later stages of the Unite Battles. Additionally, the damage caused by the Unite move, combined with Teleport’s damage buff, was excessive. Both Teleport and Unite Move have been nerfed.

Stats - Sp. Atk: 150-810 → 150-780 (Lv.1-15)
Teleport - Damage increase: 20% → 10%. Second teleport duration: 3s → 2s
Teleport+ Damage increase: 30% → 15%. Second teleport duration: 3s → 2s
Unite Move: Infinite Psyburn - Damage: 19% decrease. Time opposing Pokémon are left unable to act: 1s → 0.6s

Due to the lack of defense stats, Machamp’s primary tactic became avoiding confrontations and sneaking from behind. So that Machamp can face opponents head-on like a true champion, defense stats and Submission have been buffed.

Stats - Def: 98-490 → 100-510 (Lv.1-15). Sp. Def: 64-320 → 70-350 (Lv.1-15) Submission - Damage: 23% decrease

Despite the limitations on attack and movement speed, the shield obtained was too small for Block. Therefore, Block has been buffed.

Block - Movement speed decrease: 45% → 30%. Shield: 50% increase

There were many scenes where Aegislash couldn't attack while in shield form or kept receiving attacks in sword form right in the middle of the enemy. Adjustments have been made to Iron Head and Sacred Sword to enable quick form changes.

Iron Head - Cooldown: 7 sec. → 6 sec.
Sacred Sword - Cooldown: 7.5 sec. → 6.5 sec.

Waterfall and Aqua Tail, which had low usage rates due to their unique control feel, are adjusted to better align with trainers' intentions. Additionally, knock-up has been added to Bounce to make it easier to hit the second stage of Aqua Tail.

Waterfall - Cooldown between moves: 0.3 sec.→ 0.07 sec.
Aqua Tail - Advance distance: 50% decrease
Bounce - Charged Bounce now knocks up opponents on hit.

Since Trick was significantly less favored than Hyperspace Hole, Trick has been buffed for diverse support strategies.

Trick - Shield: 28% to 9% increase (Level 5 to 15). Movement speed increase duration: 2 sec. →3 sec.

Even in its pre-evolution state, Umbreon had high defense stats, making it quite powerful from the early stages of Unite Battles. Therefore, defense stats while Eevee are nerfed. Wish has been buffed to make Umbreon a viable option as a healing support. Additionally, Foul Play has been buffed to dive into the opponents as a defensive type.

Stats - Def: 95-500 → 85-500 (Lv.1-15). Sp. Def: 70-400 → 60-400 (Lv.1-15)
Wish - Healing Amount: 20% increase
Foul Play - Movement speed decrease: 25% for 2 sec. → 30% for 2.5 sec. Second stage damage: 20% increase

Whirlpool has been buffed since it had a relatively long cooldown. The Unite Move will now only target opposing Pokémon to prevent Azumarill from dashing toward wild Pokémon despite the trainers' intentions.

Whirlpool - Cooldown: 11 sec. → 10 sec.
Whirlpool+ Cooldown: 9 sec. → 8 sec.
Unite Move: Belly Bash - Now only targets opposing Pokémon

Crustle’s Unite Move could be interrupted by moves that prevent Pokémon from acting. This made it hard to use at the best timing with max stacked passive. The Unite Move has been adjusted to be more reliable in the middle of team fights.

Unite Move: Rubble Rouser - Becomes unstoppable for a short period at the beginning of the Unite Move

Since the damage output of Stored Power was too high for a move that is both safe and sure hits, its damage has been nerfed.

Stored Power - Damage: 10% decrease

Due to its ability to deal more significant damage compared to other speed-type Pokémon, base Attack Stats have been nerfed.

Stats - Atk: 160-660 →160-630 (Lv.1-15)

Boosted attack has been nerfed since its slowing effect was too high, which made Eldegoss one of the best Pokémon in the early stages of Unite Battles. While its main purpose was to protect allies, Pollen Puff and the Unite Move were dealing too much damage. Therefore, these moves have been nerfed.

Boosted Attack - Damage: 15% decrease. Movement speed decrease: 30% for 1.5 sec. → 20% for 1 sec.
Pollen Puff - Damage: 15% decrease
Pollen Puff+ Damage reduction: 20% → 15%
Unite Move: Cotton Cloud Crash. Damage: 13% to 17% decrease (Lv.9-15)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the issue with Buzzwole’s Smack Down, where grabbing an opponent mid-air with Superpower will also deal Smack Down’s follow-up damage.
  • Fixed the issue with Trevenant’s Horn Leech, where the knockback distance was unintended.
  • Fixed the issue with Greedent’s Bullet Seed, which could spit seeds during Slowbro’s Slowbeam.
  • Fixed the issue with Miraidon’s Electro Drift, which caused unintended behaviors when the target was KO’d while charging the boosted Electro Drift.
  • Fixed the issue with Zeraora’s Wild Charge+, which left an area that deals damage even after the move finishes.
