Pokémon Unite: Patch Brings Duraludon; Alolan Ninetales and Mr. Mime Skill Changes

Duraludon Twitter/@PokemonUnite

Duralodon is now available in Pokémon UNITE. Patch also implements balancing changes for some Pokémon, including Mr. Mime, Alolan Ninetales, and Trevenant, among others.

Duraludon is a ranged attacker with a basic attack that shoots fierce blasts of light to opposing Pokémon. Every third blast is a boosted attack that deals more damage than the last two hits. Its Heavy Metal ability prevents Duraludon from being thrown around, which is great if you’re taking on defender Pokémon like Crustle. You can have a glimpse of Duraludon’s abilities in the video below:

Mr. Mime has received some interesting skill changes. For instance, its Guard Swap skill switches the user’s Defense and Sp. Def stats with its target and now lasts as long as Mr. Mime and the target Pokémon remain linked. If the skill is linked to an opposing Pokémon, it deals damage over time and decreases its movement speed while increasing Mr. Mime’s movement speed. If the skill is used on an ally, both the user and the ally Pokémon receive an increase in movement speed.

The Alolan Ninetales’ Aurora Veil has been changed as well. When used, the Pokémon leaps to the target area, creating an Aurora around itself. The Aurora reduces the damage received by the Alolan Ninetales and its allies while in the area of effect. Furthermore, the Aurora increases the movement speed of the Alolan Ninetales and its basic attacks turn into boosted attacks, healing the Pokémon every time it deals damage.
