Pokémon UNITE: New Support Pokémon is Coming

Pokémon Unite
Pokémon Unite TiMi Studios

Blissey - a normal-type Pokémon - will be coming to Pokémon UNITE tomorrow, August 18, the company announced recently.

The game's official Twitter announced that the “egg-cellent” supporter Pokémon can provide healing and increased basic attack speed boost to its allies.

In addition, Blissey’s Unite Move called Bliss Assistance allows it to rush to its allies' aid and protect them from attacks.

Blissey is known to be quite sturdy in other Pokémon games, so it is not surprising if it has a higher base HP compared to others.

Interestingly, developer TiMi Studio Group has decided to release Blissey first instead of Blastoise, considering it was announced in June. Blissey will be available on August 18.
