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 29, including a limited-time Zeraora. As such, the list of Pokémon in Pokémon Unite is nowhere near the hundreds of Pokémon in mainline games. 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 29 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, Venusaur, Lucario, Snorlax, Tsareena
A Alolan Ninetales, Cinderace, Garchomp, Gengar, Zeraora, Blissey, Mamoswine, Greedent, Dragonite
B Charizard, Eldegoss, Mr. Mime, Slowbrow, Gardevoir, Wigglytuff
C Cramorant, Crustle, Greninja, Machamp, Decidueye

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, Tsareena
A Charizard, Lucario, Dragonite
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, Venusaur
A Alolan Ninteales, Cinderace, Decidueye, Greninja
B
C Cramorant, Gardevior

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, Greedent
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 Gengar
A Absol
B Talonflame, Zeraora
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 Mr. Mime,
B 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, each Pokémon's move-set and strategies appeal to your playstyle more, so experiment and see what works for you! Everyone is going to find different advantages and disadvantages based on how exactly they take to the game.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic
