Decidueye Gameplay Guide

Decidueye is a long-ranged attacker who is capable of dealing so much damage from a great distance.

Decidueye may be played in the top or bottom lane, even in the middle lane but because of its lack of mobility, it may suffer against speedsters especially in the early game.

Decidueye’s passive, Long Reach grants it bonus damage when dealing damage against enemies from a distance. This effect procs both on basic attacks and on moves so keep your distance against enemies to always to maximum damage.

Decidueye’s basic attack has a stacking attack speed bonus so if a fight is about to happen, attack nearby wild Pokemon to stack up on the passive bonus even before the fight starts.

What is the role of Decidueye when taking objectives?

Decidueye has a lot of damage per second. Because of this, it is capable of taking down Drednaw, Rotom, and Zapdos fast. But because of its fragile nature, Decidueye needs to have a defender or a support by its side while taking the objective.

If enemies try to contest the objective, activating Razor Leaf will allow Decidueye to attack both opposing Pokemon and the objective at the same time.

Decidueye also excels stealing objectives using its Spirit Shackle and Nock Nock. 

Middle and Late Game

Using the Razor Shadow build

The Razor Shadow build allows Decidueye to deal large amounts of damage per second. It can be to all enemies in the area thanks to Razor Leaf and it can be to a single target thanks to Shadow Sneak. 

On team fights, do not show yourself early in the fight because the enemy speedster will always be on the lookout for you. Stay close to your defenders and supports while trying to hit opposing Pokemon you can damage safely.

Using the Spirit Sneak build

The Spirit Sneak build is almost the same as the Razor Shadow build but the main difference comes from losing the area damage in exchange for more burst damage thanks to the Spirit Shackle move. Use Spirit Shackle to slow down enemies who overextend and to kill fleeing low HP enemies.

When is the best time to use the Nock Nock Unite move?

Nock Nock is a long-ranged Unite move that deals large amounts of continuos damage and also some burst damage in the end.

It can be used to either damage enemies even before they reach the objective. When they become low enough before reaching the objective, they will think twice before contesting.

It can also be used to snipe down low HP enemies who are trying to flee. Do this only if you used the Razor Shadow build. Otherwise, use Spirit Shackle to snipe down enemies instead.

Nock Nock can also be used to try to steal objectives but because its initial projectile can be blocked and its last quill cannot be immediately activated, you have to use it at around 30-40% of the objective’s health so it can have a higher chance of stealing the objective with its large quill.

Did You Know?

Decidueye may seem cool and collected but it can be easily startled. If it is surprised, it begins to panic. Decidueye only requires a tenth of a second to pluck, aim, and fire an arrow. Even with its speed, it is accurate to up to half a mile away.
