Adjustment for competitive tournament scenes

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



Mew has been consistently popular in tournament scenes for a while due to its ability to perform flawlessly from the early to late stages of Unite Battles. Since it is a Pokémon that does not evolve, its overall damage in the late stage of Unite Battles has been nerfed.


  • Sp. Atk: 90~950 → 90~900 (Lv.1-15)

Boosted Attack

  • Damage: decreased by 4%~12% (Lv.1-15)

Unite Move: Mystical Mirage

  • Damage: 11%~12% (Lv.9-15)


Blastoise has kept a high pick rate in the competitive tournament scene for a while due to its ability to play both hindrance role and damage-dealing role depending on the choice of moves. There is no issue with being able to play multiple roles, but its damage dealt was too high for a defender Pokémon. Therefore, the damage-dealing ability of Blastoise has been nerfed.

Water Gun

  • Damage: decreased by 15%

Hydro Pump

  • Damage: decreased by 10%
  • Time opposing Pokémon are left unable to act: 1s→0.6s

Hydro Pump+

  • Damage: decreased by 10%

Water Spout

  • Damage: decreased by 10%

Adjustment for Ranked Match

Changes have been made to some Pokémon stats and moves to adjust the balance in Ranked Match.



Unite Move: Dragon Current has been nerfed for it has been used more than expected per Unite Battle.

Unite Move: Dragon Current

  • Cooldown: increased by 25%


Although it was able to withstand the opponent's attack with a high amount of shield, there were still lots of scenarios where it loses the fight due to the lack of dealt damage. So we buffed Metagross.

Gyro Ball

  • Damage: increased by 10%

Zen Headbutt

  • Damage: increased by 13%

Unite Move: Compute and Crush

  • Damage: increased by 15%


There were many cases that Razor Leaf was in cooldown at the beginning of group battles, causing Decidueye to miss the opportunity to deal damage. Therefore, it has been buffed so that it can be used more easily even when attacking wild Pokémon.

The movement speed decrease of Leaf Storm was not enough to keep Decidueye safe from the approaching opposing Pokémon, so it has been buffed to ensure the safety of Decidueye besides the cooldown time being extended. 

Razor Leaf

  • Cooldown: 10s→8s

Leaf Storm

  • Cooldown: 6s→8s
  • Damage: increased by 30%
  • Movement speed decrease: 45%->60%, decays by 10% every 0.5s, with a maximum of 4 decays, lasting 2.5s. 

Leaf Storm+

  • Movement speed decrease: 45%->60%, Decays by 10% every 0.5s, with a maximum of 4 decays, lasting 3.5s.


Cramorant has kept a low pick rate in Ranked Match for a while.

So Dive has been buffed to improve its usability, and Hurricane has been buffed so that it can deal enough damage as a move which is hard to hit.


  • The time it takes to store a use of this move: 6s→5s


  • Damage: increased by 15%


It has been KO’d much more than expected until evolving into Tyranitar, which made ally trainers bear a heavy burden. Therefore, its stats in the early stage of Unite Battle have been buffed. The combination of Sand Tomb and Stone Edge has also been buffed to make it easier to hit.


  • HP:3150~8800→3300~8950 (Lv.1-15)
  • Defense: 90~500→110~520 (Lv.1-15)
  • Sp.Def: 70~375→90~395 (Lv.1-15)

Stone Edge

  • The motions of the first and second stage of this move have been speeded up.

Sand Tomb

  • The time it takes to be able to use the second stage of this move has been shortened.
  • Time opposing Pokémon are left unable to act: 1s→1.5s
  • Movement speed decrease caused by the dust: 25%→35%


Helping Hand and Safeguard had low usage rates since Blissey has been picked to restore the HP of ally Pokémon in most of the UNITE Battles. Therefore, Helping Hand and Safeguard have been buffed.

Helping Hand

  • Basic attack speed increase: 30%→35%
  • Movement speed increase: 30%→35%


  • Shield duration: 3s→4s


The whirl of Fire Spin exists for so long that the opposing Pokémon without dash moves can do nothing but run away. And combined with Fire Blast dealing massive damage, it has resulted in one-sided battles in many cases.Therefore, Fire Spin has been nerfed to enable opposing Pokémon to counterattack while Fire Spin is in cooldown. Fire Blast has been nerfed to reduce its total damage in Unite Battles.

Fire Spin

  • The duration of the whirl: 5s→4s
  • Cooldown: 7→7.5s

Fire Blast

  • Damage: Decreased by 10%
  • Cooldown: 6s→7s


Glaceon's ability to counterattack with high damage and keep safe range against opposing Pokémon was too high for an attacker Pokémon. Therefore, Ice Shard has been nerfed its ability to keep safe range against opposing Pokémon, and Icicle Spear has been nerfed its ability to KO opposing Pokémon.

Ice Shard

  • Movement speed increase: 50%→40%

Icicle Spear

  • Damage: Decreased by 10%


  • Fixed the issue with boost emblems where the special effect of equipping emblems of the same color vanishes after being KO’d.
  • Fixed the issue with Gyarados where the basic attack remains the same as Magikarp’s basic attack when it evolves to Gyarados thorough increasing the Effort gauge only by basic attack with hitting nothing.
  • Fixed the issue that the game would become laggy when Mimikyu appears on the screen in the Nintendo Switch version.
