Pokemon Unite has a game-breaking exploit for Rotom

The Generation IV Electric type character is one of the Wild Pokemon that spawns during a match in the Remoat stadium map. If players capture it during a game, the Rotom will move towards the opponent’s goal and help the squad in gaining control of it. The scoring also becomes instant with no cast time. Along with that, players also gain Energy Points for capturing it. In the end, the team also gains 20 points if they successfully control the goal.

A Redditor on r/PokemonUnite showcased an exploit involving Rotom. The exploit uses a Snorlax, and it allows the opponents to deflect the character’s movement, which then stops it from moving to the goal. This re-direction allows the enemies to take advantage as the Rotom doesn’t help the team to take over a goal. This is a game-breaking glitch that players can abuse a lot, rendering this Wild Pokemon to be useless.

How the exploit works?

The clip showcases the Snorlax trying to fight off the Rotom on the map. After using the block ability, the character bumps into Snorlax, which causes it to suddenly change its path. With this exploit, the Rotom no longer goes to the first goal, and it travels to the one behind it. The Pokemon Unite community couldn’t fathom what they were seeing, and everyone scratched their head in confusion, while calling the exploit to be dangerous for the MOBA title.
