Blissey and a balance patch come to Pokémon Unite

Since launching on 21st July Pokémon Unite has managed to be rather successful with balance changes under its belt as well as new playable Pokémon with Blissey now the latest addition.

“Blissey is an egg-cellent Supporter Pokémon with moves that heal or increase basic attack speed! Its Unite Move, Bliss Assistance, allows it to dash to an ally’s aid and protect that ally from attacks,” reads the announcement.

There were three other Pokémon  in the game that fall under the Supporter role: Eldegoss, Mr. Mime and Wigglytuff. Many players were asking for more Pokémon to fill the Supporter role as Eldegoss was / is the only viable option with its powerful healing. Hopefully Blissey will be able to provide similar team support when it releases tomorrow on 18th August.

You can see a short trailer of the new addition in action below.

Blissey becomes the second post-launch Pokémon to be added to the game after Gardevoir.

Coinciding with the announcement of Blissey is another round of balance changes.

Many rightfully criticised the first ever changes to the game, which were released earlier this month, as they were too vague.

Unfortunately nothing has changed. The latest balance patch, with full notes available here, also leave out actual numbers or precise details.

Instead damage and cooldown changes are simply referred to as “increased” or “decreased”.

Looking over these changes and there are some welcome ones such as Cinderace having its basic attack damage reduced and Gengar’s Hex being “downgraded” whatever that means.

Only time, and community testing, will reveal if these changes have any appreciable effect on the game.

Pokémon Unite is available on Nintendo Switch right now and will release on mobile come September.
