Pokémon Unite Meowscarada Guide: Meowscarada and its movesets
As expected, Meowscarada has a combination of Dark-type and most importantly, an arsenal of Grass-type moves, mainly based on agility, as in the anime. Here are the details of those movesets in Pokémon Unite.
Whenever a set amount of time passes, the next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. Boosted attacks have the user leap at opposing Pokémon and deal additional damage.
After the Pokémon takes damage that reduces it to half its max HP or less, it disappears into leaves for a short time. For a short time, the Pokémon’s movement speed and damage dealt increase, and each time the Pokémon deals damage to opposing Pokémon, it recovers HP. This ability goes on cooldown after it’s triggered.
Ability 1- Leafage
This Grass-type move has the user shoot out leaves that deal damage to opposing Pokémon they hit and decrease their movement speed.
- Type- Ranged
- CD- 7s
Ability 1 upgrades at Level 6
At Level 6, Leafage evolves into either of these 2 moves based on your choice:
|This unique move has the user attach a flower bomb to an opposing Pokémon. The flower bomb can be detonated at will if the move is used again, and when it explodes, it deals damage based on the percentage of HP the opposing Pokémon has lost. If the user deals damage to an opposing Pokémon that has a flower bomb attached to it, the explosion’s area of effect is increased and it deals increased damage. If the user knocks out an opposing Pokémon with this move, the move’s cooldown is reset.
|This popular move has the user throw slashing waves with its claws, dealing damage and applying a mark to opposing Pokémon the slashing waves hit. The user’s basic attacks have an increased critical hit rate on marked opposing Pokémon. When the user deals damage to marked opposing Pokémon with basic attacks, this move’s cooldown is reduced and the user recovers HP.
|Upgrade: Increases the explosion’s area of effect and increases the user’s movement speed after this move is used.
|Upgrade: Increases the critical hit rate and HP recovery.
Ability 2- Hone Claws
- Type- Dash
- CD- 8s
This move has the user sharpen its claws while moving, increasing the speed and damage of its next three basic attacks.
Ability 2 upgrades at Level 7
At Level 7, Scratch evolves into either of these 2 moves, based on your choice.
|This normal-type move has the user create an illusory copy of himself while dashing to befuddle opposing Pokémon. If this move is used again, the user swaps places with the illusory copy. When this swap happens, or when the illusory copy’s HP drops to 0, flower petals are scattered around, damaging opposing Pokémon and leaving them unable to act for a short time.
