Pokémon Unite Miraidon Gameplay Tips

Our Pokémon Unite Miraidon Guide will now discuss how to play and achieve a perfect game plan for the Pokémon, across the game. The following division has two sections of the early and late game, which players must make sure to read, till the end.

Early Game

Since Miraidon doesn’t evolve, he is pretty much strong right from the start. In terms of laning, players could either go Top or Bottom Lane, or even the Jungle Lane.

Players should focus on farming to level up Miraidon to further unlock new powerful combos. It is best to prioritize and upgrade Thunder Wave as it serves as a crowd control and damage-type move. Whereas, Aqua Tail proves to be an indeed useful move against enemy Pokemon or in Boss fights as it deals continuous AOE damage to surrounding targets.

Since the top lane is preferable for Miraidon, players should take on Rotom and also score as many goals as possible. This would help them level up as fast as possible and target opponent attackers. Early in the game, players should use Miraidon to mark and take down enemy Speedsters’ main or Support role Pokémon to further delay their evolution and leveling.

Late Game

A couple of levels later at Level 7, a choice has to be made between either Thunder or Parabolic Charge. Thunder is highly recommended as it allows Miraidon to easily deal damage to enemy targets whilst efficiently slowing them down.

However, Parabolic Charge can be a useful pick especially when faced with multiple enemy Pokémon targets as it helps maximize HP recovery from each Pokémon. Do choose according to the game plan. The Unite move can also be very useful during the Zapdos‘ fight to kill and steal, as it can help him maim and target enemy main damage dealers with each summoned meteorite.

Positioning of Myraidon

The best path for Myraidon would be the top of Jungle Lane. Players should Focus on farming lane Aipoms and Audinos. The cluster of Combees and Vespiqueen should be hunted down as much as possible to allow for increased exp and easy Level up. The attacking capabilities of Miraidon shouldn’t be wasted targeting enemy main roam player units, except when assisting your allied speedster.

Miraidon with other Pokémon

Our Pokémon Unite Miraidon guide will also talk about the relationship between Miraidon and other Pokémon.
