Blastoise can be a great defensive unit in Pokemon Unite

This Pokemon is already blowing everyone’s mind with his kit. It contains several hidden mechanics that aren’t even listed in the description section. For starters, Blastoise can reduce cooldowns by 1 second by spamming his basic attacks. Your attack does not need to land on enemies for the cooldown reduction to occur.

Water guns can push back multiple enemies, and if you attack at close range, then the knockback will be much greater. Head smash can stun multiple enemies and it indeed has a small cast time. Surf has a massive range as compared to what the indicator displays in the game. Hydro Pump’s knockback depends upon the range it is being used from. The closer you are to the enemy, the farther it is going to push back the enemy.

Rapid Spin can slow enemy movement and render you impervious to crowd control abilities. You can also use your basic attack while spinning and you can end it any moment. It also resets the cooldown for Hydro Pump, Sprou,t and boosts your basic attack after the ability’s duration ends. You can have a great impact on your team fights by unleashing this combo ability in quick succession.
