Best Sylveon Build in Pokemon Unite
Of course, you'll start out as Eevee, but at level 4 you'll evolve into Sylveon in Pokemon Unite.
Adaptability (Eevee) – Every time a Pokémon deals or takes damage, Sp. Atk increases for a short time.
Pixilate (Sylveon) – Every time a Pokémon deals or takes damage, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def increases for a short time.
Basic Attack (Eevee) – Becomes an attack that increases with every third attack, dealing increased damage when hit.

Swift – 7s Cooldown – Fires a star-shaped beam at opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to them.
Baby-Doll Eyes – 5s Cooldown – Stares at the enemy Pokemon, dealing damage and reducing the Attack and movement speed of the enemy Pokemon for a short time.
Swift is the option we're going to pick, but you'll be unlocking other steps at level 2 so whichever option you choose doesn't really matter.
Mystical Fire – 7s Cooldown – Creates four small fires while advancing in the specified direction. Fire shoots at opposing Pokémon one by one, dealing damage and reducing Sp. Opposing Pokémon. Atk for a short time when they hit. Every time the flame hits, it reduces the cooldown of this move.
Upgrade: Increases the number of fires by one.
Hyper Voice – 5s Cooldown – Unleash attacks from multiple sound waves that deal damage. The damage they deal increases the further the target is from the user. Each time a sound wave hits, the damage of the next sound wave increases.
Upgrades: Increase the number of sound waves one by one.
We recommend using Mystical Fire when playing as Sylveon in Pokemon Unite as it deals damage and reduces Sp. Attack the opponent's Pokemon that you hit with it.
However, if you are an accurate player who wants pure damage, then Hyper Voice is also a good choice.
Draining Kiss – 10s Cooldown – Blows a kiss to the opposing Pokémon, which goes back and forth several times. When the kiss touches the user, it restores his HP. When it hits an opposing Pokémon, it deals damage to it and reduces its movement speed for a short time.
Upgrades: Increases the amount of HP recovered by this move.
Calm Mind – 10 seconds Cooldown – Has the user calmly focus his mind and calm his spirits to increase his Sp. Atk, Sp. Def and movement speed for a short time.
Upgrades: Only once when using this move, if the user is hit by an opponent's Pokémon skill, the damage will be completely lost and the user is given a shield
Draining Kiss is the move you choose most often for Sylveon in Pokemon Unite. This is because it allows you to heal in the middle of battle, meaning you don't have to rely on your teammates for support.
Alternatively, Calm Mind can also be effective as it allows you to withstand some damage from Sp. attack as well as dealing some more damage as well.
Unite Move – Fairy Frolic – Makes the user jump into the air and become briefly invincible. When the user lands, it deals damage to the opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and restores its own HP. For a short time after, the percentage of damage dealt by the user is converted to HP for the user
This is the perfect Unite Move to use when you are surrounded by enemies and in low health. Using this at the right time can really turn the tide of battle in your favour.
Best Sylveon Item – Pokemon Unite
These are the items we recommend using when playing as Sylveon in Pokemon Unite:
- Focus Band – When a Pokemon drops to low HP, then every second for three seconds, it recovers 8% of lost HP.
- Wisdom Glasses – Increases special attack damage.
- Choice Specs – Increases minimal movement damage (40/50/60) when hit. The higher the SP Pokemon. atk. the more damage increases
The Eject Button is the best Battle Item to use when playing as Sylveon in Pokemon Unite. This fast teleportation helps make up for Sylveon's low mobility and durability.
Sylveon's Strategy in Pokemon Unite
- Sylveon is best suited for playing the upper lane in Pokemon Unite, but you can also get a lot of success playing the lower lane too – avoid the jungle!
- Make sure to farm wild Pokemon whenever you can. Sylveon unlocks his Unite Move much faster than many other Pokemon, at level 8, so be sure to take advantage of this.
- Keep your distance and take advantage of your ranged attacks – you don't have the endurance or speed to get into melee combat.
- Turn your lane mates into tanky characters like Snorlax or Blissey to take the most damage for you.
