Recommended Items

Pikachu in Pokémon Unite is an Attacker type of Pokémon. It is a strong damage dealer that mostly relies on its Moves with good crowd control potential. As Held Items we recommend:

  • Sp. Atk Specs to boost your Sp. Atk stat.
  • Wise Glasses further increase your Sp. Atk.
  • Shell Bell reduces your Move Cooldown, boosts Sp. Atk and heals your character.

As Battle Item we recommend you to try X-Attack. It makes your Pokémon deadlier for a short time. Also, don’t forget about Eject Button. It is always a good option.

How to Play Pikachu in Pokémon Unite

Pikachu in Pokémon Unite is one of the best Attacker Pokémon in the game. It deals a huge amount of damage and has good crowd control options. At level 1 we recommend you to pick Thunder Shock as it has a lesser cooldown. Also, there is a good combination of Thunder and Thunderbolt that allows you to stun your opponents and deal a lot of damage in a small area. But you always can pick Electro Ball as a versatile Move. Try to learn this Pokémon and you will shock your opponents with its damage and stuns. Good luck in your further matches.
