Pokemon Unite Blissey Build & Guide
Learn how to use each move properly
Removes all status condition from the Pokémon. This ability goes on cooldown after it’s triggered.
Pound Move 1
Has the user attack by pounding in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time when it hits.
Pound is your only damaging move in the early game. You should combo it with your boosted attack to deal some burst damage to wild pokemon or to enemies.
Avoid last hitting wild pokemon using this ability so your lane partner can reach higher levels at a faster rate.
Pound Upgrade Options
Hurls an egg at the designated location. The egg then explodes, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and throwing them.
Also decreases the movement speed of enemies for a short time when they are thrown by this move.
Egg Bomb is your only damaging upgraded move. It deals damage once it lands and throws enemies.
Egg Bomb is great for interrupting enemies and for stealing wild pokemon but unfortunately, it is seldomly picked as an upgrade because of its alternative, Helping Hand is, most of the time, more useful.
For a short time, greatly increases the user’s and nearby allies movement speed and basic attack speed. While this move’s effects last, all of the user’s basic attacks become boosted attacks.
Increases the damage of basic attacks while this move’s effects last
Helping Hand is a buff that increases Blissey’s and nearby allies’ movement speed and attack speed.
It allows Blissey to deal a lot of damage because all of her basic attacks become boosted attacks while this move is active and her boosted attacks deal 200% more damage than her normal attacks. It is like consistently hitting enemies with critical hits.
This is also a perfect buff for critical-hit based pokemon like Cinderace, Absol, and Machamp.
Heal Pulse Move 2
Continually restores the user’s and designated ally HP for a short time.
Heal Pulse is a wide-ranged heal move. It has a long cooldown so make sure that your allies, or your lane partner at least, are inside the range when you activate Heal Pulse.
Heal Pulse Upgrade Options
Throws an egg to an ally, restoring its HP as well as the user’s HP. A maximum of 3 uses can be kept in reserve for this move.
Increases the maximum number of uses that can be kept in reserve.
Soft Boiled is a spammable version of Heal Pulse. Each cast is targeted and will only affect you and the target ally but it can be cast every two seconds and so it can be used to quickly refill the HP of you and your allies.
Target each cast of Soft Boiled manually so you can be sure that your heal will reach its intended target.
You can cast Soft Boiled on yourself if there is no ally nearby.
Do not spam Soft Boiled blindly. If the situation is not dangerous, you can hold off casting Soft Boiled so you can replenish your stacks so you will be ready when a situation where you will really need it arises.
Removes all status conditions from the designated ally and makes it immune to hindrances for a short time.
Also grants the designated ally a shield.
Safe Guard is a counter to hindrances. Only pick this move if the enemy team has lots of hindrances or else this ability will just be a waste except for the small shield that comes when it becomes upgraded. This means that in order to successfully play Blissey, you have to be at least be familiar with all the other pokemon.
If you are playing duo with someone you have communication with, tell them to use Score Shield as it stacks and extends any shield its user has while scoring, making you interruptible as long as you have your shield available.
Bliss Assistance Unite Move
Unlocks at level 8
Has the user dash to the designated ally to give it an egg, granting that ally a shield and increasing its Attack and Sp. Attack for a short time. The user also intercepts a portion of the damage received by that ally for a short time. While dashing, the user throws nearby enemies and those it comes in contact with.
Bliss Assistance is a great buff Unite move. It grants the target ally a shield and increases their attack and special attack for a short duration. Furthermore, a portion of the damage your target ally receives is transferred to Blissey.
During the initial dash, enemies that come in contact with you are thrown.
Bliss Assistance is best used on your allies that can create a lot of chaos on the battlefield like Speedsters and All-Rounders during the mid game and on Attackers in the late game.
This Unite move makes hyper-carrying pokemon even more dangerous, making them hit stronger and harder to take down.
Buddy Barrier is a perfect match with this Unite move because it grants a shield when you activate your Unite move and since you have a shield, the damage transfer would not be an issue.
Here are our Recommended builds on Blissey
Build Name: Hand Boiled
🔥 PREFERRED BUILD THIS SEASON 🔥
Hand Boiled is the support build of Blissey that is great for most situations. The Soft Boiled move is a spammable heal-on-demand move that is always welcome for any lineup and Helping Hand’s movement speed and attack speed buff is great for basic attack based pokemon.
Buddy Barrier combines nicely with Blissey’s Unite move because it makes Blissey receive a portion of the damage of the target allied pokemon. With the shield from Buddy Barrier, Blissey will be able to tank the transferred damage with little worry.
Exp Share is a must for support pokemon. It makes its user’s lane partner receive more experience for being the one who knocks out wild pokemon and when its user has the least amount of experience in their team, they will receive passive bonus experience points. This item will make sure that you and your lane partner will always come out on top in terms of experience points.
Wise Glasses increase the amount of healing Blissey can do. This will allow you to keep you and your allies alive for longer and have the upper hand in fights.
Blissey enables her teammates and makes them harder to kill. This is why enemies would mostly likely target Blissey first on team fights. Because of this, she needs the Eject Button to quickly get to safety if she is focused on.
Build Name: Helping Guard
The Helping Guard build is a situational build that is focused on countering lineups that rely on hindrances. You have to be familiar with other pokemon because if you make the mistake of choosing this build instead of the Hand Boiled build, you will have a useless move and you will be missing out on the healing from Soft Boiled.
But given the right circumstances, this build can make strong pokemon like Crustle, Snorlax, Gengar, and Wigglytuff useless.
Focus Band is great for keeping Blissey alive. Blissey has above average HP but it doesn’t mean that she is tanky enough because she has low defense and special defense. The bonus defense and special defense make her harder to kill plus Focus Band grants bonus regeneration when its user is low and when you combine it with Soft Boiled, enemies would be surprised at how much Blissey can regenerate in a short period of time.
Aside from Focus Band, this build uses the same Held and Battle items as the Hand Boiled build.
Blissey Gameplay Guide
Blissey is a traditional support that focuses on healing allies, buffing their offensive capabilities, and generally making the game easier to play for her teammates.
In the early game, help your ally knock out the wild Pokemon until the both of you reach your outermost goal zone. Once you are at the middle part of the lane, begin to reserve Blissey’s boosted attack and Pound to attempt to steal wild Pokemon from enemies.
Play aggressively and try to steal as many wild Pokemon as you can as you will be able to heal yourself using Heal Pulse, anyway. Remember to always cast Heal Pulse in the presence of your teammates to maximize its usage.
Do not worry about being behind levels as Blissey does not need to stat check (the way of comparing your level against the enemy) because Blissey does not fight enemies directly. Blissey wins the game by enabling her teammates.
If the enemy has a directional hindrance move like Slowbro’s Telekinesis, deliberately put yourself in front of your teammates so you will be able to absorb it and be unaffected thanks to her passive, Natural Cure.
What is the role of Blissey when taking objectives?
Blissey should remain behind her teammates so that she’ll be safe while she is using her moves to support and heal her allies.
You should remain vigilant and stay away from grasses because Blissey is a priority target for enemies because your allies are way harder to kill while you are around.
Middle and Late Game
Using the Hand Boiled build
The Hand Boiled build is the traditional support build for Blissey. Soft Boiled is a heal-on-demand that can be stored and spammed and Helping Hand is an offensive buff that increases the movement and attack speed of Blissey and nearby allies.
When using this build, always stay close to your highest level allied Pokemon. This way, you will help that ally dominate the game even further and you will make sure that that Pokemon will stay alive to carry the game to victory. In a sense, you will be carrying the game through that teammate.
Using the Helping Guard build
The only difference with this build is that we are going to forgo Soft Boiled for Safe Guard. This is a hard counter against Pokemon who rely on hindrances to shut down their opponents. This item is a must have if the enemy team has a Snorlax, Crustle, Machamp, and Slowbro.
When is the best time to use the Bliss Assistance Unite move?
Bliss Assistance is best used on your highest level teammate after a fight breaks out. Never use this move before a fight starts because it will just encourage enemies to simply back away and wait for the duration of your Unite move to end.
If you have communication with a pre-made party, tell them to use their Unite move together with yours so that the damage bonuses will stack. This technique works doubly well if they are using the Energy Amplifier Held item.
Did You Know?
Blissey is overflowing with love. Eating its eggs can cause the eater to start acting kindly and can calm down even the most ferocious Pokemon. Blissey is a female-only Pokemon, hence the use of the “her” pronoun.
