Blaze Kick For Critical Hits

Blaze Kick packs quite a punch as it always lands a critical hit, shoves opponents aside, and leaves them burned. This move is particularly great for high-pressure situations or attacking from a distance because you won't need to measure your movements to make sure that your attack hits.

Feint For Invincibility

Invincibility moves are critical in Pokemon Unite, and Cinderace has a particularly useful one that can either aid in winning a close fight, or help in escaping one if necessary. This move also grants a speed buff, so it's great to utilize whenever you're in a pinch.

Items For Max Battle Performance

Cinderace's attacks are maximized with Muscle Band, & Razor Claw - enabling you to deal high-damage hits for quick KO's. You can also consider swapping Razor Claw with Scope Lens if you want more critical hits. Equip Buddy Barrier so you and your whole team can get shielded whenever you use your Unite Move.

(Cooldown: 40s)

Pyro Ball For Ranged Damage

Pyro Ball is a long-range yet potent damaging shot that can damage all Pokemon in its line of trajectory. This is particularly great mid-game as it both deals a powerful hit and also gives you enough space between you and your enemies - ensuring your survival in case the battle gets too heated.

Flame Charge For Max Mobility

Flame Charge is a highly mobile attack as it charges you forward in a certain direction - enabling you to jump in or out of the fray depending on your needs. This gives you the option of going for X-Attack instead of Full Heal as your Battle Item so you can crank out more damage in a shorter window.

Maximize Damage With Held Items

Make sure you maximize Cinderace's powerful attacks by supplementing him with Muscle Band & Razor Claw. These enable Cinderace to deal high-damage hits for quick KO's. Don't forget to equip Score Shield since you're bound to rack up points with this build.

Full Heal For Invincibility

Full Heal is great for when Defenders try to hinder you from certain goals or movements and I thought it’s particularly good for this build because it doesn’t have the invincibility granted by Feint. Try it out in battle and see how it affects your gameplay! You can also choose to swap this with the Eject Button if survivability is your priority, or X-Attack if you want to deal more damage.

Feint & Pyro Ball For Invincibilty & Damage

This build utilizes Cinderace's invincibility granting Feint & power-packed Pyro Ball. This synergistic combo gives you more chances to thrive in an onslaught. This is particularly great mid-game as it both deals a ranged powerful hit and also makes you invincible - ensuring your survival in case the battle gets too heated.

Held Items For A More Solid Build

Held Items

While Muscle Band is an obvious choice for Cinderace, you'll find that it could actually benefit you a lot in battle to add a bit of solidness to our powerful attacker for more survivability. Do this by equipping Buddy Barrier and Focus Band.

Best Builds For Each Pokemon

Cinderace Strategy Guide

Going Top Lane Is Recommended

Top Lane

Scorbunny is a great Attacker Pokemon, so you can head straight into battle with your allies via the Top Lane. Focus on getting last hits while playing safely from a distance in your early levels.

Scorbunny (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Ember First

Although Low Sweep is an equally great offensive move, Ember is the more certain choice as it deals a sure hit. Aside from this, it also triggers additional damage for the next 3 attacks you deal. You may choose to then follow up with Low Sweep which would both deal damage and slow your opponent's movements, but pay attention to your positioning!

Generally Best To Attack From A Distance

Although you can deal powerful hits even at the beginning of the game, you will find that your endurance is on the lower end. Avoid close fights and generally try to keep your distance as you inflict continuous damage on your opponents. Be careful when closing the distance with Low Sweep, as it can put you in a very dangerous situation.

Raboot (Lv 7~) Strategy

Moves Get More Powerful From Lv5 Onward

Your initial 2 offensive moves will get upgraded to their more powerful versions once you reach level 7. Your second move will come one short level after, at 8. This is your main power spike, so you'll want to try to reach this level as fast as possible and be of use to your team.

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

At level 7 you'll get a choice between Pyro Ball & Blaze Kick. Blaze Kick will let you jump in onto enemies, providing Cinderace with better chase potential. Pyro Ball is a safer alternative, as it simply does damage at a long range. Consider adjusting your 2nd move depending on which one you pick here.

If You Chose Blaze Kick
Lv 8: FeintFeintBuff
Increases the user's movement speed for a short time and makes the user invincible
If You Chose Pyro Ball
Lv 8: Flame ChargeFlame ChargeDash
Has the user charge forward cloaked in flame, dealing damage to any opposing Pokemon it hits

Cinderace (Lv 9~) Strategy

Blaze Kick + Feint Build

Recommended Combo
Blaze KickFeint

With this build, you'll be able to deal a powerful close-ranged critical attack, knock back your opponent, and become invincible for a short period of time. Being invincible for both moves in this build gives you ample opportunities to deal a few more attacks without taking in damage, and eventually flee the battle if necessary.

Pyro Ball + Flame Charge Build

Recommended Combo
Pyro BallFlame Charge

This build maximizes damage potential by using two damage-dealing moves. Attack from afar with Pyro Ball, and quickly follow up with Flame Charge to both deal more damage and also increase the range & damage of your next basic attack. Then, deal successive basic attacks until you eventually KO your opponent.

NoteThis build doesn't run Feint, which means you'll be extra vulnerable after charging in. As an Attacker, it will be absolutely crucial to position carefully. Consider saving your Eject Button for a quick escape.

Pyro Ball + Feint Build

Recommended Combo
FeintPyro Ball

A build that utilizes Cinderace's invincibility granting Feint & power-packed Pyro Ball. Pick away at enemies from a safe distance with auto attacks and Pyro Ball, saving your Feint from when you anticipate a key enemy attack to land.

Unite Move: Blazing Bicycle Kick

This move can be quite useful in group battles as it inflicts damage on all enemy Pokemon in range while still keeping a safe distance between you and the opposing team.

This is also one of the best moves in the game for stealing the last hit on objectives. If you're struggling in a fight, consider saving this to try to get the last hit on Zapdos. Doing so can likely win you the game, making Cinderace one of the most impactful champions in the game.

Cinderace - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will teach you specific Wild Pokemon kill orders, as well as exactly what to do at various stages of the game.

10:00~9:40

Target Level3
Tasks① Take Ember as your first move
② KO the 1st Aipom
③ Take down the 2nd Aipom
④ Clear the 3rd and the 4th Aipom
⑤ Head towards the center of your lane

Taking Ember is greatly recommended. Not only does it have better damage than Low Sweep, it also can inflict Burn damage over time. Also, Cinderace's passive allows it to deal more damage with a normal attack after using a move. Remember this passive as it will come in handy during the latter parts of the game.

9:40~7:00

Target Level5
Tasks① Defeat the Audino found on the upper part of the bottom lane
② Defeat the upper left and lower left Audinos
③ KO the Corphish found on the lower left side of your team's goal
④ Clear the 3 Combees and the Vespiquen at the middle of your lane
⑤ KO the respawned Audino found on the upper part of the bottom lane
⑥ Clear the upper left and lower left Audinos again
⑦ KO the respawned Corphish found on the lower left side of your team's goal
⑧ Clear the 3 Combees and the Vespiquen again

As an Attacker, Cinderace does not have enough HP or Defense to handle strong attacks especially in melee. If you find yourself in melee range of an enemy Pokemon, use Low Sweep towards your side to escape. If you find yourself in low HP, make sure to regularly heal up and use the Yellow Berries near your goal.

7:00~After Defeating Drednaw

Target Level8
Tasks・ Use Pyro Ball to check for enemies hiding inside bushes
・ During team fights, do not go to the front and always attack from a distance
・ Use Feint to dodge attacks
・Aim to land get Drednaw using a last hit with Pyro Ball

Pyro Ball is a long-range move that can be manually aimed even without targets present. You can use this to check suspicious bushes to see if enemies are hiding inside of them. You can also use it to land last hits thanks to its almost instantaneous execution. Use this to take down high-priority targets like Drednaw for your team.

Drednaw Guide

After Defeating Drednaw~Before Zapdos Fight

Target Level9~
Tasks・ Use Wild Pokemon to level up
・ Use Pyro Ball to check for enemies hiding inside bushes
・ During team fights, do not go to the front and always attack from a distance
・ Use Feint to dodge attacks
・ Use Pyro Ball to land last hits
・ If you find yourself in a bind during team fights, use Feint to escape

Cinderace can find itself pretty useful during fights and while farming Wild Pokemon as it has an exceptionally high offensive power. Make good use of this by invading the enemy's side of the map and taking their Wild Pokemon and Aeos Energy. Should you find yourself being pressured or ganked, use Feint to escape to a safe place.

Zapdos Fight

Tasks・ Use Pyro Ball to check for enemies hiding inside bushes
・ During team fights, do not go to the front and always attack from a distance
・ Use Feint to dodge attacks
・Use your Unite Move to land a last hit on Zapdos

Cinderace's Blazing Bicycle Kick has better range and damage than Pyro Ball. If you and your team lost a fight, you can still make it up by hiding inside a bush and targeting Zapdos with your Unite Move for the last hit.

Pokemon Cinderace Is Weak Against

How To Play Against Cinderace

・ Blocking Cinderace is a great way to stop it in its tracks. Use moves from Crustle or Alolan Ninetales to make obstacles to block Cinderace's path.
・ Cinderace is also weak against very mobile enemies such as Zeraora due to most of Cinderace's moves having a narrow area of effect. You can also move around instead of towards Cinderace to dodge its attacks.
・ Spreading out reduces your chances of getting bombed by Cinderace's moves. Spread out when attacking it to greatly curtail its damage potential.
