Becoming a good player in Pokémon UNITE will require that you’re good at playing certain battle types, similar to other MOBA games. There are many different types available in this MOBA and one of them is the All-Rounder. As the name suggests, the Pokémon belonging to this type are the balanced ones, possessing good offense and defense.
This means they can be used for many different roles, whether it’s defending your goal or pushing a lane. Of course, there are many more roles that an all-rounder will perform. To help you know what those roles are and who the best all-rounder Pokémon are, continue reading this Pokémon UNITE all-rounder guide.
An Overview of the All-Rounder Role
The all-rounder Pokémon in Pokémon UNITE is similar to that of a Fighter or the Side Laner. They’re the heroes that don’t usually need any help from other heroes because of their decent offense and defense. They can properly defend their lane while also pushing it when needed. They’re very flexible when it comes to what role they will play in the team.
All-rounder Pokémon can go on the offensive and help push lanes or score goals for the team. They can also go on the defensive and help defend your team’s goal post. It will basically play as your team’s secondary attacker or defender with their high offense and endurance. They can even act as your primary hero for each role, depending on how you will build them and unlock certain abilities.
In terms of what they will do early on, all-rounders should be focusing on defeating wild Pokémon and leveling up as quickly as possible. You need to unlock your abilities as soon as possible to really become effective and help your teammates. Once you have your abilities unlocked, your role would shift to roaming the map and helping push or defend lanes.
During the battle, you should be one of the first ones to engage the enemies after the defender to lower their health. Your main targets would be the backline so it will be easier for your speedster to finish off enemies. The only issue with all-rounders is that they’re difficult to master because of their flexibility.
The Best All-Rounder Available in Pokémon UNITE
The all-rounder Pokémon is the most flexible role in Pokémon UNITE. All Pokemon with this role usually have good offense and endurance to allow them to play both as an attacker and defender. There are currently only 4 all-rounders available in the game, Machamp, Lucario, Charizard, and Garchomp. Among them, the best one available right now is Machamp. He has great stats across the board except for support, which makes him viable to play almost any role.
But what really stands out with Machamp is his innate offense. Once you pair that with Muscle Band, you won’t have a hard time dominating fights all throughout the game. In the early stages, you just need to focus on leveling up until you evolve to Machoke before starting to help out other lanes. A close second to Machamp would be Lucario.
Lucario – The Second Best
This Pokémon doesn’t have the impressive offense and endurance of Machamp, but he has excellent mobility. Also, it makes him more like a speedster and is the fastest all-rounder in Pokémon UNITE. He is good at closing gaps which can catch many enemies off-guard. They wouldn’t expect an all-rounder to move that fast, so they won’t be prepared for it. He is a great Pokemon at chasing escaping enemies.
Charizard The Easiest All-Rounder
Though all-rounders are not easy to master, the easiest Pokémon you can use to learn the role is Charizard. Like Machamp, he also features impressively across the board except for the support stats. His skills are also not that difficult to use and he can seamlessly fit in any role. This makes him a good practice Pokémon to use to help you learn more and understand the all-rounder role.
The last all-rounder Pokémon that you can use is Garchomp. He is also a very decent all-rounder that can be hard to stop during fights. The only problem with this Pokémon is that it takes him longer to come online compared to other all-rounders. You’ll need to evolve the Pokémon as Garchomp before you can really start roaming and make a difference during fights.
