Pokémon UNITE was just said to be the biggest patch ever, with impactful balance changes to some of the Pokémon on its playable list, a new Ranked Mode progression rework, and some Updates to the base gameplay — all of which will change the way millions of users play the game.
Players were used to large balance changes in the past, but version 220.127.116.11 is the first time TiMi Studio has extensively changed the level requirements for many moves and evolutions for playable Pokémon.
Gardevoir, Garchomp, and Mamoswine are all powerful Pokémon in their own right, but they all require the player to play at a somewhat disadvantage due to the heavy farming required for them to evolve and are suitable for some set Pokémon. Focus on early game more. This has now been mitigated slightly, as all three Pokémon now evolve one level earlier at each stage and will learn moves faster.
Making this change will allow players to use these late-game Pokémon more freely without undue punishment for early lagging.
Snorlax is also included in those level changes, which results in the bulky Normal type being used more often as it will likely be more useful earlier in each match.
Not only did those Pokémon get remakes from the ground up, but the developers changed the way the game’s basic mechanics worked in relation to the general maps, starting with scoring.
On all maps above UNITE, the player will recover less HP when scoring. This will make it so that scoring with a suppress or a Point Shield won’t necessarily prevent the other team from repelling attackers or taking them down because their survivability is reduced.
On the main stage of most matches in the game, Remoat Stadium, the Aeos Energy dropped from KO’d Pokémon has been reduced. Additionally, the healing and Shield effects for both Base and Mid Goals have been enhanced, meaning it’s much harder to simply push in, KO the opponent, and keep scoring freely.
Additionally, Sitrus Berries is now a timed feature on the map and will disappear after five minutes, leaving a team that still hasn’t conceded their first opponent on their map a bit regretful to learn that their opponent their not. t has the option of instant HP recovery while defending.
All of these map changes should make it a bit safer for most players to play lanes, knowing they won’t be able to push their opponents as easily or fall back to Sitrus Berries due to over-draping in stages before Zapdos of late game. .
TiMi has also made some distinct changes to the way the rating system progresses for UNITE works with two important changes that affect all players, but will be especially helpful for those already or looking to climb to the Master. You can read more about those changes here.
It’s unlikely that the developers will release a major update like this anytime soon, because version 18.104.22.168 is the basis for not only Tsareena being added to the game, but also the arrival of Dragonite and the upcoming Festival event, which begins on December 15th.
