Adjustment for competitive tournament scenes
  • Changes have been made to some Pokémon stats and moves to adjust the balance in highly competitive tournament scenes.
Trevenant

Its powerful synergy with allies’ attacks in large-scale effects that leave opposing Pokémon unable to act led to high usage rates in tournaments. While retaining its characteristic of coordinating with teammates, the damage has been nerfed to make it more difficult to take down opponents alone.

Wood hammer
  • Damage:18% decrease
  • Cooldown: 8.5s → 9s
Curse
  • Damage: 25% ~ 18% decrease (Level 5 to 15)
Hoopa

Its high usage rate in tournaments was due to the effective use of Trick and Phantom Force to enhance the team’s mobility and provide healing at the same time. Since healing is not the primary effect, the amount of it has been nerfed.

Trick
  • Healing: 50% decrease
Trick+
  • Healing buff to allies: 60% decrease
Leafeon

The high damage from Solar Blade made Leafeon one of the best Pokémon for securing last hits and picking up KOs, leading to early game dominance. Solar Blade’s damage and Chlorophyll movement speed have been nerfed to reduce its impact in the early stages of Unite Battles.

Chlorophyll
  • Movement speed increase: 20% → 15%
Solar Blade
  • Damage: 13% → 9% (Level 5 to 15)
Mr. Mime

In the current draft mode, there are few options for support Pokémon that excel at healing allies. To provide more options, the healing amount of Power Swap has been increased.

Power Swap
  • Movement speed increase: 8% → 10%
  • Healing: 22% increase
Tyranitar

The excessive damage from Stone Edge and the high durability while in Sand Tomb allowed it to fight multiple Pokémon at once, making it difficult to deal with in ranked matches. The overall damage and durability while in Sand Tomb have been nerfed.

Base Stats
  • Attack: 150 to 485 → 150 to 450 (Level 1 to15)
Sand Tomb
  • Damage reduction: 25% → 15%
Stone Edge
  • Damage: 10% decrease
Unite Move: Tyrannical Rampage
  • Damage: 20% decrease
Scizor / Scyther

With the adjustment to the effect of the Muscle Band, its effect now activates twice when Technician activates, significantly increasing the damage dealt. To balance this, the cooldown of Swords Dance has been increased, reducing the frequency of Technician’s activation.

Swords Dance
  • Cool down: 7s → 8.5s
Miraidon

The damage dealt by Electro Drift was too high for a move that is difficult to avoid, so it has been nerfed.

Electro Drift
  • Damage: 5% decrease
  • Damage when empowered: 10% decrease
Blaziken

The effect of the ability Blaze was insufficient given the high requirement of five attacks for activation, so the HP recovery amount has been increased. Both Focus Blast and Blaze Kick have been buffed to make it easier to successfully chain consecutive attacks from the Unite Move to each respective move.

Blaze
  • Healing: 5% of max HP → 7% of mad HP
  • Healing under 50% HP: 7% of max HP → 10% of mad HP
Focus Blast
  • Cool down: 9s → 8s
Blaze Kick
  • Cool down: 10s → 9s
Slowbro

To enhance its ability to withstand more attacks as a defense type, the recovery amount and effects of its moves have been increased. Specifically, Scald has been buffed to better counter physical damage-dealing Pokémon.

Slack Off
  • Healing: 1.5% max HP (6 times) → 2% max HP (6 times)
Surf
  • Cooldown: 8s → 7s
Scald
  • Effect of burn state reducing attack: 40% decrease → 60% decrease
Mimikyu

As a balance type often facing 1v1 situations, its durability was insufficient. Therefore, the HP recovery amount from Shadow Claw and the frequency of entering a defensive state with Play Rough have been increased.

Shadow Claw
  • Healing: 20% increase
Play Rough
  • Movement speed decrease: 20% → 30%
  • Cooldown: 9s → 8s
Play Rough+
  • Cooldown: 8s → 7s
Venusaur

Compared to Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb seems to underperform, the move’s effects have been buffed generally.

Sludge Bomb
  • Damage on hit: 20% increase
  • Poison damage: 50% increase
  • SP. Def decrease: 30%(1s) → 40% (2s)
Absol

The damage of Pursuit and Psycho Cut was low, making the risk of engaging the opponent significantly higher compared to other speed types. The damage of these moves has been buffed to reduce this risk, allowing for more opportunities to KO the opponent’s Pokémon than before.

Pursuit
  • Damage from the front: 22% increase
  • (No changes to the damage dealt from behind)
Psycho Cut
  • Blade damage: 50% increase
Garchomp

Despite being a Pokémon that requires a high level to evolve, its impact on the game even after evolution was insufficient. To enhance its strength when surrounded by opposing Pokémon, resistance to effects from opponents have been increased, and the effects of its moves have been buffed.

Stats
  • Reduction rate of effects received from opponents: 20% → 25% (Level 1 to 15)
Earthquake
  • Damage: 15% increase
Dig
  • Damage: 10% increase
Dragon Rush
  • Cooldown: 6s → 5s
Dragon Rush+
  • Cooldown: 5s → 4s
Duraludon

While the win rate in ranked matches is within a normal range, the usage rate remains low. Duraludon has a clear advantage in quickly KOing Rayquaza, but a strategy focused solely on this makes the battle monotonous and diminishes the enjoyment of Unite Battles. To address this, we have made overall adjustments to its stats and moves, aiming to reduce monotony and allow Duraludon to actively participate in battles as an attacker proficient in defending goals and other objectives.

Stats
  • Basic Attack Speed: 10% to 80% → 10% to 60% (Level 1 to 15)
Enhanced Attack
  • Additional damage: 3% of max HP (max 1000) → 1.5% of max HP (max 500)
Flash Cannon
  • When the move is used, attack speed increases by 100%, gradually returning to normal over 5 seconds.
  • Enhanced attack additional damage: 3% of max HP → 1.5% of max HP
Dragon Pulse
  • Damage when slightly charged: 14% increase
  • Damage when fully charged: 15% increase
Stealth Rock
  • When shattered rocks hit the opponent, a shield effect is granted.
  • Number of hits before immobilization: 4 → 2
Unite Move: Revolving Ruin
  • Now knocks back the opponent’s Pokémon at the end of the move.
  • Damage from the beam: 30% increase
  • Continuous damage from the flame trail: 50% decrease

Battle Updates
Zoroark

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
Buzzwole

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
Machamp

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
Snorlax

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
Aegislash

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.
Gyarados

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.
Hoopa

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.
Umbreon

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
Azumarill

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

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
Espeon

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
Meowscarada

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)

 

Eldegoss

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.

  • Text Fixes
Battle Updates

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

Glaceon

At level 6, learning Ice Shard and stacking crystals fast made Icicle Spear and Blizzard too powerful. Ice Shard’s attack speed buff has been nerfed so that it takes longer to gain crystals. Icicle Spear+ was too powerful, dealing serious damage despite being a sure-hit move. The damage based on HP has been nerfed so that defense-type Pokémon will take less damage from it.

Ice Shard

  • Basic attack speed increase: 75% → 60%

Icicle Spear+

  • Damage based on HP per spear: 1% → 0.5%
Umbreon

The synergy between Umbreon’s high durability and Snarl’s ability reduction made it almost impossible to KO. Snarl’s ability reduction amount has been nerfed. Mean Look was a low-risk and high-return move from a distance, so the range and cooldown have been nerfed.

Snarl

  • Attack and Sp. Atk reduction ratio: 25% decrease

Mean Look

  • Range: 5m → 4m
  • Cooldown: 8s → 9s
Inteleon

Snipe Shots from skilled trainers with high accuracy were too powerful, making Inteleon one of the best Pokémon in the tournament scene. Snipe Shot’s damage has been nerfed to reduce its influence in the mid-game.

Snipe Shot 

  • Damage: 10% to 7% decrease (Level 5 to 15)
Clefable

In draft mode, Clefable tends to either be banned or selected, which leads to few team comps. This was due to the healing from Moonlight and Gravity, making it challenging to approach Clefable and KO. Therefore, Moonlight and Gravity have been nerfed.

Moonlight

  • Healing amount: 10% to 17% decrease (Level 4 to 15)

Gravity

  • Cooldown: 8s → 9s
Miraidon

Charge Beam has been nerfed since it was dealing serious damage from a safe distance. Thunder has been nerfed since it was difficult to run out of the thundercloud due to the high movement speed decrease. 

Charge Beam

  • Damage: 13% to 16% decrease (Level 5 to 15)

Thunder

  • Cooldown: 8s → 10s
  • Movement speed decrease: 30% → 10%

Thunder+

  • Movement speed decrease: 50% → 20%
Scizor / Scyther

Despite the sharp rise in attack from Swords Dance, the attack status increase on Aeos Island was modest. Therefore, Swords Dance has been buffed. The damage of Dual Wingbeat is buffed due to the lack of damage. Boosted attack is buffed to allow Scyther to stick to their opponents.

Swords Dance

  • Attack status increase: 12% → 20%

Dual Wingbeat

  • Damage: increased by 10%

Boosted Attack (Scyther)

  • Movement speed increase: 35% → 40%
  • Movement speed increase duration: 2s →3s
Charizard

Muscle Band has long been one of Charizard’s best items. However, due to the changes in the last update, the number of Muscle Band activations per single basic attack has decreased, reducing Charizard’s main damage source. Basic attack damage has been buffed to compensate for this change.

Basic Attack

  • Damage: increased by 12%
Greedent

Due to previous bug fixes, Greedent became unable to shoot seeds while stunned. As this has led to a struggle in terms of win rate, Bullet Seed damage has been buffed.

Bullet Seed

  • Damage: increased by 15%
Muscle Band 
  • Fixed the issue with Scyther’s boosted attack activating Muscle Band twice.
  • Fixed the issue with Hoopa Unbound’s basic attack, which only activated Muscle Band once when it hit a single Pokémon.
  • We are planning to fix several other issues for Muscle Band in the future.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed the issue with Gengar’s Will-o-Wisp not reducing the cooldown for Hex.
  • Fixed the issue with Leafeon, which could use a basic attack immediately after the Aerial Ace empowered basic attack.
  • Fixed the issue with Trevenant’s Horn Leech missing the final knock-up.
  • Fixed the issue with Blaziken’s Overheat changing direction while charging.
  • Fixed the issue with the low volume of sound effects for Pokémon moves.
