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 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.
Special Attack Specs also grants a lot of special attack bonuses and it grants some more each time you successfully score on the enemy goal zones. Look to score as often as possible even with small amounts to stack the bonuses of this Held item. If you are successful in stacking this Held item in the early to mid game, Gardevoir’s damage in the late game will be uncomparable.
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.
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
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.
