Level 1/2

Swift – 7s Cooldown – Shoots star-shaped rays at opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to them.

Baby-Doll Eyes – 5s Cooldown – Stare at an opposing Pokémon, dealing damage and decreasing the opposing Pokémon’s Attack and movement speed for a short time.

Level 4

Mystical Fire – 7s Cooldown – Create four small flames while advancing in the designated direction. The flames shoot toward opposing Pokémon one by one, dealing damage and decreasing the opposing Pokémon’s Sp. Atk for a short time when they hit. Each time a flame hits, it reduces the cooldown of this move.
Upgrade: Increases the number of flames by one.

Hyper Voice – 5s Cooldown – Unleashes an attack of multiple sound waves that deal damage. The damage they deal increases the farther the target is from the user. Every time a sound wave hits, the next sound wave’s damage increases.
Upgrade: Increases the number of sound waves by one.

We recommend using Mystical Fire when playing as Sylveon in Pokemon Unite as it does damage as well as decreases the Sp. Atk of opposing Pokemon you hit with it.

However, if you are an accurate player who wants pure damage then Hyper Voice is also a good option.

Level 6

Draining Kiss – 10s Cooldown – Blow a kiss at an opposing Pokémon, that goes back and forth multiple times. When the kiss touches the user, it restores its HP. When it hits the opposing Pokémon, it deals damage to it and decreases its movement speed for a short time.
Upgrade: Increases the amount of HP this move restores.

Calm Mind – 10s Cooldown – Has the user quietly focus its mind and calm its spirit to increase its Sp. Atk, Sp. Def and movement speed for a short time.
Upgrade: One time only while using this move, if the user is hit by an opposing Pokémon’s move, the damage is completely nullified and the user is granted a shield

Draining Kiss is the move you’ll want to pick most of the time for Sylveon in Pokemon Unite. This is because it lets you heal in the middle of battle, meaning you don’t have to rely on your teammates for support.

Alternatively, Calm Mind can also be effective as it lets you tank some more damage from Sp. attacks as well as dish out some more damage too.

Level 8

Unite Move – Fairy Frolic – Has the user jump into the air and become briefly invincible. The moment the user lands, it deals damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and restores its own HP. For a short time afterward, a set percentage of damage dealt by the user is converted into HP for the user

This is the perfect Unite Move to use when you have been surrounded by the enemy and are on low health. Using this at the right time can really turn the tide of battle in your favor.

Held Items

  • Focus Band – When the Pokemon drops to low HP, then each second for three seconds, it recovers 8% of the HP it had lost.
  • Wise Glasses – Increases the damage of special attacks.
  • Choice Specs – Increases the damage of moves by a minimum of (40/50/60) when they hit. The higher the Pokemon’s SP. Atk. the more the damage is increased

Battle Items

Eject Button is the best Battle Item to use when playing as Sylveon in Pokemon Unite. This quick teleport away helps make up for Sylveon’s low mobility and endurance.

Sylveon Strategy in Pokemon Unite

  • Sylveon is most suited for playing on the top lane in Pokemon Unite, however you can also have a lot of success when playing on bottom lane too – just avoid the jungle!
  • Make sure to farm wild Pokemon whenever you can. Sylveon unlocks its Unite Move much faster than many other Pokemon, at level 8, so make sure to take advantage of this.
  • Keep your distance and make the most of your ranged attacks – you don’t have the endurance or speed to get into close-range battles.
  • Get your lane buddy to be a tanky character like Snorlax or Blissey to eat up most of the damage for you.
