    Last Updated on May 9, 2023

Pokemon Unite, a MOBA game developed by TiMi Studio Group and published by The Pokemon Company for the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices where you can form teams of five and battle against other teams to score points by shooting scores in the opponents’ field and defeating wild Pokemon and opposing players.

Pokemon Unite Supports play an important role in aiding your team with healing, shielding, and crowd-control effects. As of this writing, the game is in its 10th season, and if you’re like me and love to play support, here is a quick tier list that could help you decide which support Pokemon suits you best.

Pokemon Unite Supports Tier List

S-Tier:

Comfey

Comfey is one of the few pure supports in the game with a new feature that allows you to attach to allied Pokemon to support them. Its moveset solely is aimed to assist your teammates on the battlefield.

However, it is very reliant on teammates. So make sure to never go trotting alone. But since we’re talking about the best supporters in the game, Comfey’s ease of use makes it quite favorable for new support mains.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for full healing: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, and Wise Glasses
  • Moveset to use for healing build: Floral Healing and Magical Leaf
  • You can also use the Disabler Build with: Wise Glasses, Exp. Share, and Slick Spoon
  • And the moveset: Sweet Kiss and Grass Knot

Blissey

Blissey is one of the most adaptive support players in the game. It can prevent and remove debuffs, disable foes, heal you, and even increase your damage! With its egg-based moves, it also deals good damage and heals, making it a formidable Pokemon on any battlefield. Its primary drawback is its need to rely on teammates, as opposed to other supports, who can fight effectively when alone.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for full support: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, and Buddy Barrier
  • Moveset to use for full support: Helping hand and Safe Guard
  • You can also use the Egg Build with: Wise Glasses, Exp. Share, and Buddy Barrier
  • And the moveset: Egg Bomb and Soft-Boiled

A-Tier:

Mr. Mime

Mr. Mime uses barriers and manipulates the defense and special defense of allies and enemies to its advantage. While the walls are a great addition to the team’s defense, you should not discard its offensive skills as aggressive players often fall to its disabling skills and burst damage. Depending on your playstyle, you will still find Mr. Mime effective in any battle

Tip:

  • Held items to use for full offense: Exp. Share, Choice Specs, and Slick Spoon
  • Moveset: Confusion and Power Swap
  • For full support: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, Slick Spoon
  • And the moveset: Confusion and Power Swap

Clefable

Clefable is currently the best healer in the game. Focusing on recovery and disable, using its moveset, Moonlight, can increase your teammate’s defense by quite a lot, making it a great save during crucial team clashes. Apart from that, Clefable’s Unite Move, Wonder Wish, allows you to provide heals.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for full support: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, and Buddy Barrier
  • Moveset: Moonlight and Gravity
  • For full provoke build: Wise Glasses, Focus Band, and Buddy Barrier
  • And the moveset: Draining Kiss and Follow Me

B-Tier:

Eldegoss

Eldegoss provides your team with both shields and heals. A rather simple playstyle, but has the advantage of possessing ranged attacks, which make it lethal if left free hitting. Although its support powers are outmatched in certain ways, you will find value in its easy-to-use AoE moves.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for healer build: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, and Buddy Barrier
  • Moveset: Pollen Puff and Cotton Guard
  • For full utility build: Muscle Band, Rescue Hood, and Exp. Share
  • And the moveset: Leaf Tornado and Cotton Guard

Hoopa

Hoopa is a one-of-a-kind support that offers the team more than just buffs and heals. With Hoopa, you can provide alternate routes of traversal via Hyperspace Hole and Rings Unbound, which can instantly mobilize the team. While it lacks the standard heal and boosts available to Supporters, Hoopa’s portal gameplay allows for unique, strategic moves that can make the Pokemon a cornerstone in any team composition.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for support build: Exp. Share, Shell Bell, and Energy Amplifier
  • Moveset: Shadow Ball and Trick
  • For full utility build: Muscle Band, Exp. Share, and Focus Band
  • And the moveset: Phantom Force and Hyperspace Hole

Sableye

Sableye is definitely not your average support. It provides fresh ways for hindering opponents through deceit and confusion. Aside from Prankster’s stealth gameplay, it also has skills like Confuse Ray, which can cause opponents to fight each other, and Feint Attack, where you can lure opponents with fake Aeos Energy. Sableye’s usefulness stems from its ability to make it difficult for the opposing team to gain a footing on the battlefield.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for hindrance build: Muscle Band, Attack Weight, and Float Stone
  • Moveset: Knock Off and Confuse Ray
  • For full scouting build: Float Stone, Exp. Share, and Leftovers
  • And the moveset: Shadow Sneak and Feint Attack

C-Tier:

Wigglytuff

Wigglytuff is great at setting up enemies for your team, and can also disable opponents with effects like Stun and Sleep with strategic positioning and movement. Wigglytuff’s Cute Charm and Starlight Recital provide your team with additional safety against aggressive Pokemon, making it a strong support at any stage of the game. Wiggly is only on C-Tier because every player is familiar with dodging its move because it was one of the first supports released, making it easy for opponents to counter.

Tip:

  • Held items to use for singing support build: Exp. Share, Rescue Hood, and Buddy Barrier
  • Moveset: Sing and Dazzling Gleam
  • For damage build: Choice Specs, Slick Spoon, and Focus Band
  • And the moveset: Roll Out and Double Slap

That’s it! Choose the support that best fits your team’s playstyle in Pokemon Unite and get those Aeos energy in the enemies’ goal zones and win!
