Pokémon Unite Charizard Gameplay Tips

Our Pokémon Unite Charizard guide includes the perfect game plan for the early and late game during Unite battles.

Early game

Early-game farming is essential for Charizard and all other Pokémon. Charizard is an all-rounder, so he can play both offence and defence. Depending on your role, choose a lane with a defender for offence or an offensive character for defence.

Pokémon Unite Charizard early game

Early in the game, staying with your partner and using long-range attacks can help you avoid dying, but keep in mind that his offensive power is not strong enough to battle 1v1 Attackers and Speedsters.

Late game

Late in the game, Charizard gains more range on his ranged attacks, allowing him to keep his distance from attackers and speedsters. Only Charizard’s ranged attacks allow him to keep up with his opponents.

Melee attacks will cause Charizard to take a fair amount of damage as he has to get close to his opponents, and he will not last long if he takes damage, so it is best for him to prefer long range attacks and move with his teammates so he can play a better all-arounder role of defense and attack.

Positioning

The top lane and the bottom lane. Select your lane and play your part properly, as an offensive or defensive Pokémon. In general it is recommended to play on the bottom lane.

Pokémon Unite Charizard tips, tricks, and strategies

  1. Since Charizard has lack of mobility options make use of Eject as much as you can
  2. Fire Punch is a great option to chase or escape depending on the situation. But you’ll need to manually place the direction.
  3. The combination of Fire Blast + Fire Punch is a great way to deal extra damage. First throw Fire Blast and then use Fire Punch to keep the opponent inside the flaming area. This will not only deal damage over time but also slow down the enemy.
  4. It is recommended to use the Unite move when there are more than a single opponent

Final Thoughts

Charizard is not very viable in the current Pokémon Unite meta; he is significantly weaker than his peers and fails to live up to his iconic name from the Pokémon franchise. We hope that the developers will give him a significant buff so that he can be brought back to the arena and his fans can play him as he should be. Still, if you want to only play charizard, keep your distance, prefer long-range attacks, and always stay together with a teammate during enemy engagements, and you’ll be fine.
