Pokemon UNITE debuts on the Nintendo Switch with 19 Pokemon. Attackers, All-Rounders, Defenders, Speedsters, and Supporters are among the duties assigned to each ‘mon.
How to play Attacker Pikachu in Pokemon Unite
Pikachu’s attack numbers are among the best in the game. TiMi Studio has made him mushy in defense and speed as a trade-off. The ‘mon, on the other hand, compensates for this with its paralyzing ability.
Enemies who are hit by Pikachu’s third attack will be paralyzed for the rest of the game. With its huge area of effect splash damage, its early special Thunder Shock can freeze up to many foes.
Thunder Shock should be upgraded to Electro Ball because it’s a sure hit and provides Pikachu some range. Starting at level six, its second ability, Electroweb, can be modified into Volt Tackle, which offers it a rapid dash attack.
The ‘mon learns its explosive UNITE move Thunderstorm, which is comparable to Thunder but considerably stronger, starting at level 9.
Trainers can use Volt Tackle to dive into a pack of opponents before unleashing Thunderstorm, Pikachu’s nuclear power, to paralyze multiple enemies at once, giving it time to flee.
