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. As is the case with many other multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games, a Pokémon Unite tier list also exists, giving you the chance to see which Pokémon is the best.

  • Alolan Ninetales (Attacker)
  • Blastoise (Defender)
  • Blissey (Supporter)

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

Currently, only 23 Pokémon are available to play with in Pokémon Unite, but more are planned to be added in the future.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
