Pokemon Unite Gardevoir Build & Guide
Learn how to use each move properly
When an enemy inflicts decreased movement speed or a damage-over-time condition on the Pokémon, the same is inflicted on that opponent. This ability goes on cooldown after it’s triggered.
Confusion Move 1
Attacks straight in the designated direction.
Confusion is your main damaging move in the early game. It is best to use it after a boosted attack because your boosted attack decreases the special defense of enemies hit.
Confusion Upgrade Options
After hitting an enemy or traveling its maximum distance, deals damage over time to enemies in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time.
Psychic deals damage over time to an area when it hits an enemy. It slows down affected enemies so it combines well with Psyshock.
Has the user attack while moving back to create distance. When the move’s blast hits, it deals damage to enemies in a cone and leaves the enemy closest to the user unable to act for a short time.
Also grants a shield when this move is used.
Moonblast is a utility move. It deals damage to an area and the closest enemy hit becomes stunned. At the same time, Gardevoir moves back when the move is cast so she becomes safe from enemies.
This move also grants a shield to Gardevoir once upgraded into Moonblast+.
Teleport Move 2
Has the user warp to the designated area, increasing the damage dealt by one basic attack after warping.
Teleport allows you to either get away from enemies or you can use it to deal some burst damage to enemies in this manner:
Boosted basic attack > Confusion > Teleport > Boosted basic attack.
Be careful though, Gardevoir is extremely easy to knock out in the early game so only use it when going for a knockout and when you are sure that the enemy won’t be able to fight back and you are sure of the enemy jungler’s positioning.
Teleport Upgrade Options
Attacks the designated location three times. This move’s cooldown is reduced each time one of these attacks hits an enemy.
Increase the damage this move deals each time one of its attacks hits.
Psyshock is a burst damage move. It hits three times and each hit reduces the cooldown of this ability.
Psyshock can be redirected with each hit by moving Gardevoir. The target location moves parallel to how Gardevoir moves. Because of this mechanic, it is best to cast Psyshock at its maximum distance so Gardevoir can redirect Psyshock safely.
Gardevoir can use her other moves while Psyshock is active.
When this move is upgraded into Psyshock+, it deals more damage with each consecutive hit.
Sets a delayed explosion. When the explosion hits an enemy, it reduces this move’s cooldown.
Reset this move’s cooldown when the explosion hits an enemy.
Future Sight is a burst damage move. It explodes after a delay so it is best used in combination with Moon Blast that stuns enemies.
Future Sight’s cooldown is reduced when it hits enemies and once upgraded into Future Sight+, its cooldown is reset once it hits enemies, allowing Gardevoir to continually cast it as long as it hits an enemy.
Future Sight is best used if you have an ally with reliable hindrances so you will be able to spam Future Sight nonstop.
Fairy Singularity Unite Move
Unlocks at level 10
Warps Space in the designated area, drawing in enemies to the center. Shoves and deals damage to enemies the instant the warped space disappears.
Fairy Singularity is a game-breaking Unite move. Once cast in the chosen area, it sucks enemies to its center.
After a short duration, it shoves enemies and deals a lot of damage.
After casting Fairy Singularity, it is best to spam all your move because enemies won’t be able to avoid them and you will be able to deal a lot of burst damage to the enemy team.
Here are our Recommended builds on Gardevoir
Build Name: Psychic Shock
The Psychic Shock build enables Gardevoir to deal damage over time an area and over quite a good distance. Because of the layering of damage over time of this build, it can even be considered as burst damage. It requires some proficiency on landing skill shots because of Psyshock’s mechanics but it is still easier to use compared to Future Blast. Even so, having allies with Hindrances is great for this build.
Wise Glasses grants a lot of special attack bonuses and Gardevoir relies on her moves and she wants to burst enemies down so the large special attack bonus is exactly what she needs.
Shell Bell heals its user every time their moves hit. Gardevoir is a fairly vulnerable pokemon with low HP and defenses so the healing will help her, especially when dueling with other attackers. You can replace this with Energy Amplifier if you want a more glass cannon build because her Unite move is one of the strongest in the game and it has great synergy with her moves.
Choice Specs makes your next move every 8 seconds will deal so much more damage to a single enemy Pokemon because of this item. Gardevoir deals a lot of damage and having another consistent source of damage will just make Gardevoir more dangerous.
Eject Button is necessary for Gardevoir because she is fragile and once enemy pokemon get close to her, she has a low chance of surviving. Eject Button increases her chances of surviving by quickly teleporting her to safety.
Build Name: Future Blast
🔥 PREFERRED BUILD THIS SEASON 🔥
The Future Blast build is a safer build in the mid game but it deals less damage then. But when the late game comes, it deals so much more damage if the user is capable of consistently hitting Gardevoir’s Future Sight. Having an ally with Hindrances is a big help when using this build.
This build uses the same Held and Battle items as the Psychic Shock build.
Gardevoir Gameplay Guide
Gardevoir is a true nuker attacker. A nuker, in general, is a gaming term that is used for a type of character that deals large amounts of damage using spells or, in Pokemon Unite, moves.
Gardevoir’s moves are definitely worthy of being called a nuke. Because when its moves are used properly, it can burst down an entire team in an instant.
But also in a true sense of a mage, Gardevoir is easy to kill once enemies got close to it and so speedsters are the bane of its existence.
Play Gardevoir in the Top or the Bottom lane, preferably with a defender or support who can, well, defend Gardevoir from being burst down by assassins.
Sometimes, Gardevoir is played in the middle lane. Be careful tho, if the enemy picks a high mobility mid laner, you will easily be bullied by it.
In the early game, make sure to play it safe and only focus on last hitting wild Pokemon. You have to reach level 8 as soon as possible to have access to two upgraded moves. In the meantime, Reserve Gardevoir’s Teleport to thwart enemy ganks.
If you are going to try to burst down enemies, make sure to hit them with Gardevoir’s boosted attack first so that the enemy’s Sp. Def. will be reduced before you unload its moves on them.
What is the role of Gardevoir when taking objectives?
Gardevoir’s damage mostly comes from its moves so the damage per second it can deal to the objectives, Drednaw, Rotom, or Zapdos, is only on the average side. But you should never overextend on objective fights because you are an easy target once enemies get close to you.
You can help damage objectives but once enemies get close to your effective range, use your abilities on them instead. Wait for your defender or supports to apply hindrance on them so you can easily hit the enemy with Gardevoir’s moves.
Middle and Late Game
Using the Psychic Shock build
The Psychic Shock build layers the damage over time of Gardevoir’s moves and it deals so much damage that it is considered as burst damage. Remember to use Psychic first to slow down enemies so they will be easier to hit with more Psyshock blasts.
Gardevoir lacks a self-peeling tool so make sure to never leave the side of your supports or defenders. If you can survive fights and land your moves at the same time, you will have a pretty high chance of winning the game.
Using the Future Blast build
The Future Blast build is a high skill build that requires good mechanical skill and patience from its user. The first advantage of this build against the other build is that it has a self-peeling tool in Moonblast that moves Gardevoir backwards while stunning the closest enemy. Its damaging tool, Future Sight allows Gardevoir to consistently damage enemies if it always hits. The risk here is that if Future Sight misses, it goes into cooldown, leaving Gardevoir useless for a few seconds.
When is the best time to use the Fairy Singularity Unite move?
Fairy Singularity is best used when enemies are grouped up together. Be patient and wait for the best time to use it because once you land it on 3 or more enemy Pokemon, it’s game over for them.
Did You Know?
Gardevoir can bend the laws of physics. It can create black holes and distort both dimensions and gravity. Even with these otherworldly powers, it is fiercely loyal and will willingly put its life force on the line to protect its trainer.
