As per the previous leaks by ElChicoEevee and reported by us a month ago, the Generation VI fire-type starter, Delphox is coming soon to Pokemon Unite as a playable character. The speculated date is early or mid-June. It would be the third fire-type starter in the game and the seventh starter Pokémon overall. Furthermore, the arrival of another starter Pokémon might hint toward the addition of more Grass and Water-type Pokémon to the roster.
Nevertheless, the news of the arrival of Delphox in Pokémon Unite has been in the air for quite a while, but there has been an advancement regarding its speculated arrival with new leaks.
The trusted Twitter handle regarding Pokémon Unite leaks ElChicoEevee has now posted about the possible abilities and movesets of the mysterious fiery fox, Delphox. Let’s check the moves assigned to the upcoming attacker in the game.
Supposed Moves and Abilities of Delphox in Pokémon Unite
Contrary to most of the previous Pokémon on the roster, Delphox might have moves of just one type. With only fire-type moves available, many gamers have shown their disappointment in the absence of Psychic-type moves from Delphox’s arsenal. Delphox would have 3 evolutionary stages just like the anime (Fennekin-Braixen-Delphox).
Since Delphox is a dual Fire and Psychic-type, disappointment is quite rightful. As per the leaks, Delphox’s ability is Blaze, which would make Delphox deal additional damage with a fireball towards an opponent when using a move while having low HP. The move would go to a cooldown once triggered.
Delphox Ability 1: Ember
Available at level 1 or 3, this fire-type move would have the user shoot a flame in front of itself, dealing damage to the opposing Pokémon.
Ability 1 Upgrade
Ember might upgrade to either of two moves, Llamarada and Llama Embrujada at level 6, based upon the user’s choice.
|Fire Blast||Mystical Fire|
|Is the user launching intense, all-consuming fire in a forward direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits. As the fire travels, it leaves behind a zone of flames in which a delayed explosion will occur, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect.|
|Has the user unleashed a special, hot ball of fire in a forward direction? If it hits an opposing Pokémon, the fire will explode, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect.|
|Upgrade: Deals increased damage.||Upgrade: Also reduces cooldowns of all moves if this move hits. If it hits a Pokémon from the opposing team, the cooldowns are reduced even further.|
Ability 2: Will-o-wisp
This move would be an alternative to Ember and would have the user conjure up three sinister flames and launch them toward the designated area. These flames then explode and in turn, would deal damage to opposing Pokémon hit by the explosion and decrease their movement speed for a short time.
Delphox Ability 2 Upgrades
Will-o-wisp can be upgraded to either of these two moves at level 7.
|Fire Spin||Flame Charge|
|Has the user created a vortex of fire in the designated area? The vortex automatically moves toward the nearest opposing Pokémon, dealing damage over time to all opposing Pokémon caught in the area of effect for a short time and decreasing their movement speed. After a set amount of time passes or an opposing Pokémon is caught in the center of the vortex, the flames increase in intensity. This increases the rate at which the flames deal damage over time, and it also leaves the opposing Pokémon unable to act for a short time.|
CD – 8s
|Has the user charged forward in the designated direction? If there are any opposing Pokémon in range when the charge ends, the user summons three flames to attack. The flames deal damage and decrease opposing Pokémon’s movement speed for a short time. This move can be used while also using Fire Blast or Mystical Fire.|
CD – 5s
|Upgrade: Increases the damage this move deals to the opposing Pokémon in the area of effect when its flames have intensified.||Upgrade: Increases the user’s movement speed for a short time when this move is used.|
Delphox Unite Move: Fanciful Fireworks
This move deals damage over time to opposing Pokémon in the designated area of effect. Opposing Pokémon that are hit have decreased movement speed and weakened HP recovery effects for a short time.
