How To Play Zeraora in Pokémon Unite

It’s important to know what kind of Pokémon Zeraora is in order to master it. Zeraora is a speedster and an electric-type Pokémon. Due to it being a speedster, Zeraora can quickly close the distance between itself and its opponent, meaning, don’t go all in straight away, but rather attack an unknowing enemy from behind, when you can deal a lot of damage all at once.

Zeraora Build in Pokémon Unite

  • Upgrade Agility to Volt Switch at Level 6
  • Upgrade Slash to Wild Charge at Level 8

The reason why you definitely want to go for Volt Switch and Wild Charge, is because both of these together make for a deadly combo that your opponent will most likely not be able to withstand. In case they do, however, remember your UNITE move once you reach Level 9 – Plasma Gale. This is great for finishing enemies off, or to engage in team fights, paralyzing opponents and giving your team members a huge advantage.

We would not recommend you going for either Spark or Discharge. While Discharge gives you a shield, Zeraora already has enough mobility to escape enemy fights, it does not need a shield for team fights, it can just run. Spark is a great engage tool, but so is Volt Switch. Think of Volt Switch as the better engage tool than Spark.

Zeraora is the 20th Pokémon in the current Pokémon Unite roster and definitely one of the strongest, if not the strongest Pokémon. If you have the time to play Pokémon Unite till August 31, then make sure you do. You want Zeraora on your team.
