Gardevoir has officially joined the Pokémon UNITE fray as a Ranged Attacker. When playing as Gardevoir, try to keep some distance from your opponents by using moves such as Confusion and Future Sight, then dish out lots of damage with Gardevoir's tricky attacks. Gardevoir also brings a powerful Unite Move to the mix—Fairy Singularity. Fairy Singularity warps space in a designated area, drawing in opponents and then dealing massive damage the moment the warped space disappears. Gardevoir's Unite license is now available in Pokémon UNITE's in-game shop.
