The month of September has brought forward the Theia Sky Ruins map in the Pokémon Unite. The map has replaced the previous Remoat Stadium map in both the Ranked and Standard battle modes. In this guide, our focus will be on this new map of Theia Sky Ruins in Pokémon Unite. Hence, players should read on to learn unique map features, map rules, and all wild Pokémon on the map. Note that, our previous map guide has all the basics of the MOBA game mentioned. The unaltered features did not get a mention in this piece. Only the changes and alterations have been mentioned here. Therefore, the players should read on, accordingly.
Pokémon Unite: Theia Sky Ruins Map Guide
The map from the top looks almost the same as the Remoat Stadium one. When zoomed in, it is a lot more different, with completely distinct features.
Latest Map Mechanics
A spawning ground is located on the farthest right or left side of the map, looking like circular pads. It is where playable Pokémons‘ respawn after getting knocked out. Also, it provides massive healing and movement speed on Pokémons that stand on it.
Just like any other MOBAs, Pokémon Unite also has lanes that extend in 3 different directions. In the meantime, here are the 3 different lanes:
- Top lane
- Middle lane
- Bottom lane
All lanes except the middle lane are similar. The middle lane is different, because it does not have goals, but stronger wild Pokémon compared to the lanes. In the Theia Sky Ruins map, however, the top lane is a solo lane.
Compared to other MOBAs, the main objective or the main way to win the game is not by destroying the enemy base, it is by scoring more Poképoints than the enemy team. Moreover, to score Poképoints, one must defeat Pokémon’ in order to be able to bank them on Goals. Each team has 4 outer Goal Zones and one base Goal. The outer goal zones are the ones that can be destroyed when specific amounts of goals are scored.
Each lane leading to an outer Goal Zone will give a speed boost to the allied Pokémon standing on it, indicated by blue streaks of light on the Pokémon. This speed buff will disappear if the Outer Goal Zone leading to it gets destroyed.
Incidentally, when players approach the enemy area/lanes, there would be a speed debuff, and their movement speed would significantly decrease.
This feature spawns only after a goal zone is destroyed, or the main Boss Pokemon (Rayquaza) spawns in the final 2 minutes. These air currents spawn in fixed locations, providing a movement speed increase to anyone in its area, as well as for a short time, after leaving. The zones of air current are as the above-given map.
Theia Sky Ruins map also contains berries to help the trainers. However, a slight change now makes only 1 Citrus Berry available on the top lane. The Salac Berry to increase movement speed is also available in Central Lane, just beside the area where Rayquaza would spawn.
Like in Remoat Stadium, there are four Jump pads found on the Theia Sky Ruins map. Standing on these jump pads will propel a Pokémon to fixed locations on the map! The Super Jump Pads are available 5 minutes into the game in each team’s home zone. The other smaller jump pads (4) are available in the middle lane.

Pokémon Unite Theia Sky Ruins Map: Tips and Tricks
In this section of the map guide. players will be shared some tips and tricks to play Pokémon Unite.
- Players must keep in mind the spawn and respawn timing of the wild Pokemon. Rotate accordingly. The jungle in this map is full of more Wild Pokemon than in the previous one. Hence, a lot of opportunities to increase levels.
- Since no Zapdos are available anymore to turn the results of the matches in the final 2 minutes, keeping a headstart would be very vital. Hence, only the ones solely dependent upon the jungle should go to the middle lane, otherwise, prioritize winning the lane battles and scoring a lot of early goals.
- Keep some Aeos Energy in store (at least 25-30) for the final stretch when the goal doubles itself.
- The Rayquaza objective is important, but make sure the whole team isn’t engaged in that fight. Beating Zapdos left the opponent’s goals defenseless, now that won’t happen. Hence, make sure your defenders/allrounders are on the jump board, defending the goals (if your team is leading). In case you are trailing, try to win team fights on the opponent’s goals.
- In this map, team game has become an absolute necessity. If either of your teammates is idling, consider you are already doomed.
- Always take on the objective bosses (the Regis). Especially the Regieleki, which is the only boss that can help you with making the opposition goal defenseless.
- Try to hold on and defend the top lane 1st goal as long as possible. It would be crucial during Regieleki fights.
- People should prioritize winning the Regieleki fights as quickly as possible, so that the final Regieleki arrives just in time, for players to knock it out before the final stretch.
- In this map, players should try to include allrounders, defenders, and supporters as many as possible.
- One must try to stick to a team game and follow the team’s strategies.
In case people have reached this sentence, consider themselves o be full of basic knowledge about the map already. Players should keep the said things in mind and in case they need help with Pokemon-based guidance, do refer to our individual Pokemon beginner guides from Pokemon Unite.
