Here's all of the playable Pokémon characters in Pokémon Unite

Gotta catch 'em all, or at least the couple of dozen in Pokémon Unite at the moment.

Pokémon Unite is officially out for the Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. For anyone who hasn't picked up the game just yet, fans can already begin to look ahead to figure out which potential Pokémon they'll want to use in what promises to be one of the best Android games out.

For those unaware, Pokémon Unite pits teams of five trainers against each other, each armed with just a single Pokémon. Pokémon can evolve, hold items to improve their standing, and even learn new moves during battle. Here are all of the Pokémon Unite playable Pokémon characters so far.

Pokémon Unite playable characters

Only 23 Pokémon are currently available in the game, each broken up by one of five types — Attacker, All-Rounder, Defender, Speedster, and Supporter. More Pokémon are set to arrive in the future, but for now we'll just have to make do with a couple dozen.

Roles and Battle Type Systems

Pokémon Unite is different from normal Pokémon games in that the battle system focuses on which Battle Type your Pokémon is rather than what elemental or attacks they know. During each match in Pokémon Unite, your Pokémon will grow as you fight with them, leading to temporary evolutions that can help take down your enemies.

In Pokémon Unite, there are five Battle Types:

  • Attacker: Pokémon with low Endurance that excel at dealing heavy ranged damage to opponents.

    • Pikachu
    • Greninja
    • Venausaur
    • Alolan Ninetales
    • Cramorant
    • Cinderace
    • Gardevoir
  • Speedster: Pokémon that have high Mobility and Offense and excel at making quick attacks and scoring points.

    • Zeraora
    • Talonflame
    • Absol
    • Gengar
  • All-Rounder: Pokémon that have balanced Offense and Endurance, and are highly tencious fighters.

    • Charizard
    • Lucario
    • Machamp
    • Garchomp
  • Defender: Pokémon that have higher Endurance and excel at protecting their allies and stopping opponents.

    • Snorlax
    • Crustle
    • Slowbrow
    • Blastoise
  • Supporter: Pokémon that provide team support by inflicting status conditions on opponents and healing allies in a fight.

    • Eldegoss
    • Mr. Mime
    • Wigglytuff
    • Blissey

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
