Pokemon Unite First Balance Patch Notes August 4 – Huge Buffs and Nerfs

Our first ever balance patch for Pokemon Unite is about to drop – here’s what changes are coming on August 4!

Pokemon Unite launched 2 weeks ago today and it’s already getting a balance patch. This is a sure sign of a healthy MOBA, especially as players have been noticing some slight power discrepancies amongst the game’s cast.

Taking a look at the Pokemon Unite Tier List, Pokemon like Cinderace, Eldegoss, and Gengar have been too powerful since launch. Meanwhile, Venasaur and Wigglytuff are just a little too weak to be viable at higher ranks.

Check out our new Pokemon Unite Tier List for the August 4 patch!

This should all change on August 4 however, as Pokemon Unite’s first balance patch aims to keep the game fair and even. In the patch notes below, we can see some major improvements to the game’s cast.

It looks as though we’ll be testing out these changes for quite some time though. After all, some Pokemon have had their OP moves nerfed while their other options got a buff.

We’ve got an interesting new meta to explore, but is Pokemon Unite Pay to Win?

That’s all for the Pokemon Unite August 4 balance patch notes. But fans can rest assured that more changes will likely drop towards the end of the month, going by the speed of this new update.

We just got our first new Pokemon Unite character last week, and rumors have it that Blastoise and Blissey are on the horizon!

Meanwhile, concerns for Pokemon Unite’s Pay to Win features are being discussed heavily, and it’s a shame that the upcoming patch appears to make no changes in that regard.
