It didn’t take long for Sylveon to get a nerf – here are the Pokemon Unite patch notes for October 8!
It’s been just 2 days since the launch of Sylveon in Pokemon Unite and the fan-favorite Pokemon wasted no time becoming top-tier.
Since the mobile release date of Pokemon Unite, we’ve had two new additions join the game’s roster. However, only one of those shot to the top of the Pokemon Unite Tier List in no time.
Players quickly realized that Sylveon was by far the most powerful Pokemon in the game. And now, just 48 hours later, we’re getting Pokemon Unite’s latest emergency balance patch.
Somehow though, this incredibly overpowered Venusaur build is still your best bet in Pokemon Unite…
