Pokemon Unite Eldegoss Build & Guide
Learn how to use each move properly
Damages an enemy and decreases its movement speed for a short time after receiving a certain amount of damage. When that happens, also recover HP and gain increased movement speed for a short time.
Leafage Move 1
Pelt the target with leaves, decreasing the movement speed of enemies for a short time when it hits.
Leafage deals some damage and slows down enemies. Use it to help your lane partner knock out wild pokemon and use it on enemies to slow them down.
Leafage Upgrade Options
Throws a Pollen Puff, which attaches to an enemy. The Pollen Puff restores HP for allies and deals damage to enemies.
If a Pollen Puff attaches to enemies, it also deals them damage over time. If a Pollen Puff attaches to an ally, it also reduces the damage they receive.
Pollen Puff attaches to an ally or an enemy. After a short delay, it explodes, dealing damage to enemies and healing allies.
It is best to attach it to melee pokemon because they’ll be able to receive more damage thanks to the heal and they are already close to enemies, making Pollen Puff deal damage to them too when it activates.
Once upgraded, Pollen Puff+ grants damage reduction when attached to allies and it deals damage over time when attached to enemies. You’d want to attach it to allies as the damage reduction is great, especially for speedsters who want to get close to enemies but are squishy in nature.
You can attach Pollen Puff to yourself by targeting the ground near you and walking to it.
Attack with a tornado of sharp leaves, leaving a path in its wake that increases ally movement speed for a short time.
Also decreases the accuracy of enemies for a short time when this move hits.
Leaf Tornado deals damage to a line and the tornado stays at the end of its range, dealing some more damage.
What’s great about Leaf Tornado is that it is a rallying move that increases the movement speed of allies that walks through its path. It makes it easier for your allies to initiate fights and chase enemies.
Once upgraded into Leaf Tornado+, it becomes a counter to strong basic attackers like Machamp and Cinderace because it decreases their hit rate.
Synthesis Move 2
Restores the HP of the user and nearby allies.
Synthesis is a simple healing move. Always use it near allies to maximize the benefits from it.
Synthesis Upgrade Options
Protects the user and nearby allies with cotton. The cotton absorbs damage and when the move ends, the cotton restores some HP.
Also increases the user’s movement speed while using this move.
Cotton Guard grants a shield to you and all nearby allies. After the move ends, it also heals you and your allies.
Cotton Guard is great for saving allies and offensively, you can use it to avoid being interrupted while you and your allies attempt to score.
Gathers spores around the user, increasing the user’s movement speed while this move is in effect. The spores burst after a short time, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect, throwing them, and decreasing their movement speed for a short time.
Reduced damage taken while using this move.
Cotton Spore increases your movement speed and after a short delay, you will deal damage around you, throw affected enemies, and slow down their movement for a short while after.
Once upgraded into Cotton Spore+, you will receive damage reduction during the first portion of the move.
Cotton Spore can immediately be activated by using Eldegoss’s Unite move, Cotton Cloud Crash.
Cotton Cloud Crash Unite Move
Unlocks at level 9
Float into the air and become invincible. If used again, pound the ground, attacking and shoving enemies and restoring HP to allies in the area of effect.
Cotton Cloud Crash has two parts. The first part turns Eldegoss invincible and makes him float, allowing him to move to where he wants to. When this is activated, it also activates Cotton Spore immediately, damaging and throwing enemies.
Once reactivated, Eldegoss pounds the ground, damaging and shoving enemies and healing allies. This is perfect for area control when trying to take Rotom, Drednaw, or Zapdos, or when trying to defend goal zones or when you and your team are trying to score.
Here are our Recommended builds on Eldegoss
Build Name: Pollen Guard
The Pollen Guard build makes Eldegoss a healing and shielding specialist.
Exp Share is important for Eldegoss because as a support, Eldegoss does not want to last hit wild pokemon and Exp Share incentivizes just that. When Exp Share is equipped, allies near the user who last hits wild pokemon gains bonus Exp, and when its user has the least exp among its team, they gain bonus passive exp. This will help you are your lane partner gain a level edge over your enemy laners.
Energy Amplifier grants cooldown reduction and increases the rate its user’s Unite move is charged. This allows Eldegoss to use their moves more often so they can be more impactful as a support.
Buddy Barrier adds an additional layer to Eldegoss’s Unite move as it grants a shield to him and to the lowest HP allied pokemon. You will be in the middle of a fight after using the second portion of Cotton Cloud Crash and so the shield will help you get back to the backline safely.
Eject Button is necessary for Eldegoss because enemies would want to knock you out first due to your strong healing and shielding capabilities that will make your allies harder to defeat. Eject Button will help you escape enemies easily thanks to the instant short teleport.
Build Name: Tornado Spore
The Tornado Spore build is an offensive support route for Eldegoss. The bonus movement speed and hit-rate debuff from Leaf Tornado are great for fights and Cotton Spore is an area hindrance that is annoying for your enemies.
This build uses the same Held and Battle items as the Pollen Guard build.
