Pokémon Unite Legacy Trainer Cynthia Showdown Event: Tips to remember

In this section of the guide, we will discuss the tips and tricks to complete the Legacy Trainer Showdown Event.

  • Players can log in Daily and do collect the free battle ticket every day.
  • They can play the matches with their friends and squad. Winning becomes easier.
  • For a few days, use up the energy boost tanks, earn extra energy, and exchange it for Fashion Items, instead of Boost Emblems. The Fashion Items option includes x320 Aeos Coins as a reward. You might need these coins to purchase Battle Tickets and new Pokemon.
  • For higher difficulties, it is best to equip score-stacking Held Items like Attack Weight and Sp. Atk. Specs to get ahead in stats. Since the enemy A.I. is not aware of this mechanic, you will have an easier time reaching the full stacks, even during the early game, and out-master your Legacy opponents!
  • Your opponents would level up fast enough even without jungling. Hence, don’t leave even a bit of space for them to do jungling. For that, sometimes ignore them, and try to steal the jungle from them.
