Who's that Pokémon?! And where do they rank in Pokémon Unite for Android?

All Pokémon are S+ tier in my eyes. Except Stunfisk. I do not much care for Stunfisk.

A new take on a long-established formula, Pokémon Unite pits teams of 5 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, but some Pokémon have natural advantages over others which is why we're heartlessly ranking them here. But let the record show that if my editor let me, this would be a tier list based on how huggable these cuties are.

Tragically for me, we're instead ranking them based on how well they perform overall, along with how they perform in their respective categories of All-Rounder, Attacker, Defender, Speedster, and Supporter.

Only a fraction of all (extremely huggable) existing Pokémon are currently represented in Unite—there are just 25, including a limited-time Zeraora. That may be good news for early adopters, though, as a more concise roster makes it easier to choose your adorable contenders and learn the basics. Pokémon Unite is currently out for Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. Start planning now with our ranking of these 25 Pokémon.

Pokémon Unite tier list

All Pokémon

Here's your quickest look at how all available Pokémon stack up against each other, regardless of type or rarity.

Tier Pokémon
S Absol, Pikachu, Talonflame, Blastoise, Sylveon
A Alolan Ninetales, Cinderace, Garchomp, Gengar, Zeraora, Blissey, Mamoswine
B Charizard, Eldegoss, Lucario, Mr. Mime, Slowbrow, Snorlax, Venasaur, Gardevoir, Wigglytuff
C Cramorant, Crustle, Greninja, Machamp

All-Rounders

Every team needs a few players who can flex their muscles and roll with the punches in equal turn. These All-Rounders are great picks for balanced offensive and defensive capabilities.

Tier Pokémon
S Garchomp
A Charizard, Lucario
B Machamp
C

Attackers

As the name implies, Attackers are great at doling out damage, but they have low endurance and can't take hits as well as other classes.

Tier Pokémon
S Pikachu, Sylveon
A Alolan Ninteales, Cinderace, Gardevior
B Venasaur
C Cramorant, Greninja

Defenders

Unfortunately, as is often the case with the tank class, there are precious few Defenders. Don't count these Pokémon out, though! They play a crucial role in protecting weaker teammates and your goal zones.

Tier Pokémon
S Blastoise, Snorlax
A Mamoswine
B Slowbro, Crustle
C

Speedsters

Every team needs an Abby Wambach — the top scorer on the field. That's where Speedsters come in with their heightened mobility and offense for a killer one-two punch that will leave your opponents in the dust.

Tier Pokémon
S Talonflame, Zeraora
A Absol
B Gengar (S++ huggability)
C

Supporters

The best of both worlds, Support Pokémon can inflict status ailments and heal your team. These sweethearts are sure to leave your teammates kissing your feet with gratitude!

Tier Pokémon
S Eldegoss, Blissey
A
B Mr. Mime, Wigglytuff
C

Heart of the cards

Winning isn't everything, and if it means you get more enjoyment out of Unite by playing your favorite Pokémon, put 'em in there, coach! No matter how they rank, I know that Venusaur and Gengar will be in my own constant rotation as my go-to guys. And regardless of how they've ranked here, you may find that a Pokémon's move-set and strategies appeal to your playstyle more, so experiment and see what works for you!

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
