Meta may not have a drastic change

Pokémon Unite patch is here with a brand new battle pass season 4. Named as Agents of Disaster, this new season brings in special skins for Absol and Pikachu. The December 20, 2021 patch also brings in a couple of balance changes to the Pokemon roster and some common bug fixes.

Pokémon Unite patch notes: Balance changes

Venusaur (adjusted)

With the previous changes in Venusaur, it seems players are still sticking to Petal Dance, probably because it gives a speed boost and to make the players use the other abilities, the dev team has been nerfing it continuously.

  • Petal Dance: Effects on the user weakened.
  • Solar Beam: Cooldown Reduced
  • Sludge Bomb: Range Increased
  • Verdant Anger: Area of Effect Adjusted

Wigglytuff (nerfed)

  • Starlight Recital: Shield Reduced. Duration Reduced.

Zeraora (nerfed)

This pokemon has been getting nerfs back to back but is still a viable pick. With this recent nerf once again, it will be interesting to see if Zeraora is being used in the Master league gameplays.
