Cinderace Moves

Learn how to use each move properly

Blaze Pokemon Unite Ability Icon


Passive Ability

When using a move, the next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. When hitting an enemy with a basic attack or move, a cinder is placed on that enemy. Attacking a cindered enemy a certain number of times will cause the cinder to flare, dealing damage to the enemy. When at half HP or less, critical-hit rate and basic attack speed are increased for a short time.

Basic Attack Pokemon Unite Ability Icon


Basic Ability

Becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing increased damage when it hits.
Ember Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Ember Move 1

cooldown timer icon 6sSure Hit

Shoot out a small flame, dealing damage to enemies, leaving them burned and decreasing their Attack for a short time.

Ember will help you level up by quickly killing wild pokemon because it will burn them and reduce their attack.

Also, use Ember to hit enemies from a distance since Ember is a sure hit move.

Ember Upgrade Options
Pyro Ball Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Pyro Ball

cooldown timer icon 7sRanged

Kick a ball of flame in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies and leaving them burned for a short time when this move hits.

Reduces the cooldown of Flame Charge or Feint when this move hits.

Pyro Ball is an upgrade of Ember that has a longer range and deals more damage.

Once Pyro Ball is upgraded, it decreases the cooldown of your other move when it hits so make sure to hit enemies with it.

Your other move is either Flame Charge or Feint, both of which are mobility moves so you can use them to reposition Cinderace to hit more enemies with Pyro Ball.

Blaze Kick Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Blaze Kick

cooldown timer icon 8sSure Hit

Perform a fiery flying kick. This move is always a critical hit, and it shoves enemies and leaves them burned for a short time. In addition, become immune to hindrances while using this move.

Increases basic attack speed for a short time when this move hits.

Blaze Kick is an offensive and defensive move.

Defensively, it shoves enemies it hits so you can use it to keep a distance from your enemies. It also makes you immune to hindrances for a short duration so time its usage against enemy moves that can disable you.

Offensively, it deals good damage because it is always a critical hit and burns enemies. Furthermore, once upgraded, Blaze Kick grants bonus attack speed when it hits.

Low Sweep Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Low Sweep Move 2

cooldown timer icon 7.5sDash

Make a swift low sweep in the designated direction, dealing damage to any enemy it hits.

Low Sweep is a mobility tool you should use to go around the map.

Only use Low Sweep to damage enemies if you are sure that you are safe and no enemies are nearby. Otherwise, reserve it as a tool to escape because you are vulnerable in the early game.

Low Sweep Upgrade Options
Flame Charge Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Flame Charge

cooldown timer icon 6sDash

Charge forward cloaked in flame, dealing damage to any enemy hit.

The next boosted attack after this move ends also decreases the movement speed of enemies hit for a short time.

Flame Charge is the upgraded version of Low Sweep. Even if it deals more damage than Low Sweep, it still should be treated as a defensive move. Do not use it to get close to enemies because you are vulnerable if this ability is not available.

Once upgraded, Flame Charge boosts your next attack to slow enemies. This will help you keep enemies away from you as you try to kite them and attack them while keeping your distance.

Feint Pokemon Unite Ability Icon


cooldown timer icon 13sBuff

Increases movement speed for a short time and become invincible.

After this move is used, basic attacks that hit enemies restore HP (up to 3 times).


Feint is a defensive move that will allow you to avoid strong moves thanks to the invincibility frame and it will help you to reposition yourself so you can keep your distance from enemies thanks to the bonus movement speed.

Use it reactively. Meaning, you should reserve it to avoid strong moves from the enemy.

Once upgraded, your next three hits will restore your HP, giving you the upper hand on late game duels.

Blazing Bicycle Kick Pokemon Unite Ability Icon

Blazing Bicycle Kick Unite Move

Sure Hit

Unlocks at level 9

Create a giant ball of flame and kick it toward the designated location. The ball releases a fierce shock wave that deals damage to enemies in the area of effect. Also increases movement speed for a short time when it hits.

Blazing Bicycle Kick is a long range damaging Unite move. You can use it to snipe down enemies and after this move hits, you can chase down enemies thanks to the bonus movement speed it gives.

Held Items

Battle Item

Eject Button Battle Item


The Pyro Feint build turns Cinderace into a pokemon that is capable of carrying his team through his long-range attacks through his strong basic attacks and Pyro Ball. Feint enables Cinderace to reposition himself to keep his distance from enemies and if they get close, it grants invincibility to help Cinderace avoid damage.

 Muscle Band grants bonus damage based on the target’s HP. With Cinderace’s high attack speed, even high HP defenders are not safe especially in the late game where Cinderace really shines.

 Scope Lens grants critical hit chance and increases critical hit damage. Cinderace, with his high attack speed, benefits from this Held item because the more attacks a pokemon can land, the more chances of the attacks being a critical hit.

Buddy Barrier increases your HP by a lot and the shield when using the Unite move can be a solid trump card on team fights or 1v1s.

 Eject Button will make it harder for enemies to reach Cinderace. Cinderace wants to attack enemies from a distance and Eject Button helps him with that.

Battle Item

X Attack Battle Item

The Blaze Charge build makes Cinderace untouchable. Cinderace can use the Blaze Kick to shove enemies away from him and he can use Flame Charge to dash to and from the battlefield. The upgraded Flame Charge also grants a slow to his next attack so it also makes it harder for enemies to reach Cinderace.

This build uses the same Held items as the Pyro Feint build.

 This build already has a lot of mobility and defensive moves so instead of Eject Button, this build uses X Attack that increases the damage output of its user for a short duration. This allows Cinderace to deal so much damage that even Defenders won’t be able to survive.

Cinderace Gameplay Guide

Cinderace is your typical long-ranged hyper-carry. Cinderace can dominate games when ahead and it can come back in the late game on bad games through farming experience points alone.

Cinderace is usually played in the Top or Bottom lane where it can farm safely with the help of a support or a defender. Due to its dependence on levels and unusually high mobility and self-peeling for a long-ranged hyper-carry, Cinderace can also be played in the Middle lane so that it can have an early level advantage against all enemies.

(Peeling/Peel – The act of disengaging or protecting against enemies. Self-peel – protecting one’s self or disengaging through own moves.)

Use Cinderace’s moves in between attacks because its passive, Blaze applies a cinder mark on enemies when attacking an enemy with a boosted attack that becomes available after three attacks or after using a move. The cinder mark flares after three hits, dealing bonus damage.

Cinderace’s Blaze passive also increases its critical-hit rate and attack speed when its HP drops below half. When fighting and you seem to be losing, stick to the fight when its a 1v1 because the damage boost will most likely surprise enemies and land you a clutch win.

It is not included in Cinderace’s description but its attack range increases as it levels up. Cinderace’s basic attack range becomes one of the longest when it reaches level 15. It can hit Zapdos from behind the obstacle and not get damaged by the legendary Pokemon while fighting it.

What is the role of Cinderace when taking objectives?

Cinderace is a long-ranged attacker that can deal a lot of damage per second from a safe distance. You should be the one who focuses on the objective, Drednaw, Rotom, or Zapdos, while your allies are either tanking their damage or distracting enemies.

Reserve your moves and Unite move to secure the objective if there are enemies nearby.

Middle and Late Game

Using the Pyro Feint build

The Pyro Feint build is the traditional marksman build. The Pyro Ball move allows you to deal damage from a distance while Feint is your go-to move when enemies reach you as it turns Cinderace invincible for a short duration.

Yes, Cinderace has a self-peeling move with this build but it is still best if you are to stay with your teammates, especially with your defenders or supports when using this build to maximize your output in the middle and late game.

Using the Blaze Charge build

The Blaze Charge build allows Cinderace to have an unusual amount of mobility for an attacker. Because of Cinderace’s high mobility when using this build, you can afford to go on the offensive more often and fight enemies toe-to-toe, whether they are an attacker, speedster, defenders, or supports.

The crucial thing to remember when using this build is that you have to play reactively with your moves. Use the moves to evade enemy moves so you will always have the upper hand.

When is the best time to use the Blazing Bicycle Kick Unite move?

The Blazing Bicycle Kick is a long-ranged single target Unite move that is near impossible to dodge. It is best used as a finisher against a strong enemy Pokemon or to secure the last hit on Drednaw, Rotom, or Zapdos. 

Did You Know?

The burning ball is actually a pebble that burned through the friction from juggling it. Cinderace loves to be cheered on but it makes it overconfidence that makes it more likely for it to mess up.
