Pokemon Unite introduces fantastic changes

The game is not something that can remain the way it is without offering changes. Each new addition to the title will dramatically change the landscape of ranked games. The Moba title needs to be tweaked on a routine basis. Without it, the devs simply cannot hope to keep players hooked.

According to a report by gamingonphone, the latest update has brought forward positive changes to the game. New tweaks have adjusted the basic attacks of Blastoise, Venusaur, and Lucario and have brought the damage output down considerably.

Pikachu, Slowbro, Gengar, and Garchomp have been at the receiving end of positive news. These Pokemon have received a major buff to their attack speed, basic attack, and abilities. This will only ensure that these Pokemon do not fall behind other Pokemon that exist in the game.
