Pokémon Unite got a new update just a couple of days ago that implemented balancing changes to various Pokémon, most notably Absol.

Absol has been underperforming for quite a while now in Pokémon Unite. That’s why Patch 1.5.2.7 is a godsend for Absol mains because of the much-needed buffs. First, this Pokémon now has an intrinsic lifesteal, set at 5% at Level 5 and 10% at Level 9. This greatly improves Absol’s survivability, especially in the late game. For abilities, the attack range of Pursuit has increased by 0.5 meters and the movement speed bonus granted by Pursuit+ is now at 35%.

While Absol is enjoying favorable adjustments, the same cannot be said for Charizard. The developers really want you to know that this Pokémon is not meant for poking and the recent changes reflected that. Charizard’s Flamethrower ability has its damage ratio decreased to 132% and its base damage reduced to 145.
