Pokemon Unite has released a new Pokemon, Decidueye! He is a versatile carry that can adapt to many different situations and fit what your team needs. Decidueye also comes with some interesting tools that incentivize keeping your distance from your enemies. Let’s take a deeper look at Decidueye’s moves.
Passive: Long Reach
Leafage (Level 1 or 3)
Razor Leaf (Level 7, Upgrades at Level 11)
Summons whirling razor leaves. For a short time after using this move, the user’s Attack and basic attack speed are increased. In addition, the user’s basic attacks can target multiple opposing Pokémon for a short time.
Upgrade: Increases the user’s basic attack damage the higher the opposing Pokémon’s remaining HP is.
Spirit Shackle (Level 7, Upgrades at Level 11)
Charges power before firing quills in the designated direction. Damage dealt by quills increases the longer power is charged, but movement speed is decreased while charging. If this move hits after power is charged to the maximum, it can also stitch the opposing Pokémon’s shadow to the ground. The affected Pokémon receives damage upon moving a set distance from that location, and its movement speed is decreased for a short time.
Upgrade: Deals increased damage to opposing Pokémon with low remaining HP.
Astonish (Level 1 or 3)
Leaf Storm (Level 8, Upgrades at Level 13)
Creates a tempest of sharp leaves, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. At point-blank range, it also shoves opposing Pokémon it hits.
Upgrade: Increases the length of time of the movement speed decrease on the opposing Pokémon.
Shadow Sneak (Level 8, Upgrades at Level 13)
Creates a shadow that takes hold of one opposing Pokémon in the area of effect, dealing damage to it and decreasing its movement speed and Defense for a short time. Also increases the user’s movement speed for a short time.
Upgrade: Further decreases Defense.
Unite Move: Nock Nock (Level 9)
If you also want to pick up Decidueye in Pokemon UNITE, his License costs 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems. This puts him in the same price tier as other Ranged Attackers like Cinderace or Greninja.
