Release DateOct 6th, 2021

The Fairy-type Eeveelution Sylveon has finally made its way into Pokemon Unite! This Fairy-type is an Attacker Pokemon that packs damage and a slight bit of HP recovery as well.

Update & Latest News

What Kind Of Pokemon Is Sylveon?

Sylveon is a Sp. Attacker, meaning it will play similarly to other Pokemon like Alolan Ninetales and Pikachu. Unlike these two, however, it has a few moves that can restore its own HP, providing a bit of sustain.

All Attackers List

Fairy Frolic

Sylveon

Sylveon's Unite Move, Fairy Frolic, behaves similarly to Eldegoss's. You'll jump up in the air, become invulnerable, and heal and do damage when you land. Unlike Eldegoss, you won't heal allies, but you will be able to heal yourself up quite substantially afterward.

Damage, HP Restore, & Enemy Debuffs

This build focuses on using your abilities to bully enemies by running them down with attacks and debuffs. The beauty of this build is that it enables you to head straight into battle without worrying too much about your HP levels running too low, thanks to Draining Kiss. Work together with another ally and you'll get yourself some really quick enemy KO's.

Go All-Out Offensive

This build is great for isolating key targets with Mystical Fire & Draining Kiss, and then burning them down with the help of your teammates. Thanks to the HP restoration from Draining Kiss, you could choose to forego some defensive items and prioritize upping your Sp. Atk with Wise Glasses & Choice Specs.

Burst Enemies Down

This build gives you the tools to deal burst damage to key targets. The Sp. Atk & Sp. Def buffs from Calm Mind give you the tools to quickly run an enemy down using Hyper Voice, especially since the latter actually deals more damage the further an opponent is. Note that you'll need to aim well to maximize this build's potential.

Aim For More Power

Although this build makes you more vulnerable to attacks, the Sp. Def buff from Calm Mind can be sufficient enough to give you more leeway to select damage-boosting items. Equipping both Wise Glasses & Choice Specs will enable you to quickly KO an enemy as you chase them down, and Score Shield will help protect you as you rack up the points for your team.

catchmyEEVEE's Build

Author's Notes
- This build is mostly made for Sp.Atk boosts and dealing more damage when landing a move.
- When using Draining Kiss, it will deal extra damage and also heal you. Mystical Fire also gets a boost in power.

Sylveon Strategy Guide

Top Lane Is Recommended But Can Go Bottom

Sylveon Lane

It's recommended for Eevee to go to the Top Lane, but you can also opt to head Bottom, depending on the route of your teammates. Focus on getting last hits while playing safely from a distance in your early levels.

Eevee (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Swift First

Sylveon Swift

Although Baby-Doll Eyes is a good offensive move, we recommend that you start with Swift as it deals more damage for faster KO's - a very important thing to consider at the earlier stages of the game. Aside from this, it also can deal damage to several Pokemon at once, so utilize this when targeting Wild Pokemon that are lined up.

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. You can get more offensive once you get Baby-Doll Eyes as this move both deals damage & decreases the opposing Pokemon's attack and movement speed.

Sylveon (Lv 4~) Strategy

Moves Get More Powerful From Lv4 Onward

Once you evolve into Sylveon, you'll get two powerful move choices: either Mystical Fire or Hyper Voice. The former deals damage and debuffs enemies, while the latter deals area damage that hits harder the farther the enemy is. Once you've added these moves to your arsenal, you'll be able to run enemies down more effectively, but make sure you still work with allies!

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

At level 6 you'll get a choice between Draining Kiss & Calm Mind. Calm Mind will give you Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and movement speed buffs, providing Sylveon with better chase potential. Draining Kiss is a safer alternative, however, as it's a sure hit that deals damage at a long range, restores your HP, and slows your enemy down. Consider adjusting your 2nd move depending on which one you pick here.

Draining Kiss
Lv 6: Draining KissDraining Kiss
Has the user blow a kiss at an opposing Pokemon that goes back and forth between the user and the opposing Pokemon multiple times. When the kiss touches the user, it restores its HP. When it hits the opposing Pokemon, it deals damage to it and decreases its movement speed for a short time. If the user and the opposing Pokemon move too far away from each other, the kiss will disappear faster than normal.
Calm Mind
Lv 6: Calm MindCalm Mind
Has the user quietly focus its mind and calm its spirit to increase its Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and movement speed for a short time.

Sylveon (Lv 8~) Strategy

Mystical Fire + Draining Kiss Build

Recommended Combo
Mystical FireDraining Kiss

Start with Mystical Fire to close in on your enemy, lower their Sp. Attack, and deal damage. The enemy debuff granted by this move gives you a safety net to get closer without worrying about taking in too much damage. Follow up with Draining Kiss to restore the HP that you might have lost, inflict damage, and slow down the movement of your opponent to close in for the KO.

Calm Mind + Hyper Voice Build

Recommended Combo
Calm MindHyper Voice

This build maximizes damage and chase potential by giving you Sp. Atk & Sp. Def buffs as you dive into battle. Start the combo with Calm Mind then quickly follow up with Hyper Voice to keep damaging your enemy as you hunt them down. Note that with Hyper Voice, 1) the attack will be targeted in front of you regardless of the buttons you push or how close you are, so aiming well is key, and 2) the further the opponent is, the more damage they take in, so don't be afraid to chase after them for that KO!

NoteThis build doesn't run Draining Kiss, which means you'll be extra vulnerable after charging in without the HP restore. As an Attacker, it will be absolutely crucial to position carefully. Consider saving your Eject Button for a quick escape.

Unite Move: Fairy Frolic

Sylveon's Unite Move, Fairy Frolic is a great move to utilize in a pinch as it grants invincibility while you're up in the air, deals damage as you land, and restores your HP. The damage you deal to enemies afterfterward is partly converted to HP, giving you plenty of opportunities to survive a tight battle!

Sylveon - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will guide you on what specific Wild Pokemon to target in what order, as well as what to do at various stages of the game. This guide is based on the Mystical Fire/Draining Kiss build.

10:00 - 9:40

Target Level3
Tasks① Learn Swift
② Defeat all 4 Aipoms on the way to the lane
③ Head to the central part of the bottom lane.

It is recommended to choose Swift first during the early stage of the battle, as it deals higher damage and hits opponents 4 times, making this a good move for getting the last hit on wild Pokemon!

9:40 - 7:00

Target Level6
Task① Defeat the Audino in the top part of the lane.
② Defeat the Corphish in the upper & lower left part of the lane.
③ Defeat the Corphish to the bottom left of your goal.
④ Defeat the Combee & Vespiquen.
⑤ Repeat steps 1-4 when the above Pokemon respawn before the 7-minute mark.

Since Eevee isn't very powerful in the early game, try to level up to level 4 ASAP. Then, aggressively attack the opposing side and capturing their Wild Pokemon using Mystical Fire.

7:00 - Until First Drednaw

Target Level8 & above
Task・Fight opponents while behind bulkier Pokemon (Defender Pokemon if possible)
・Chase after fleeing enemies with Mystical Fire
・When your HP gets low, use Draining Kiss to heal up
・Time your Unite Move for when enemies use key attacks
・When its HP gets low, try to get the last hit on Drednaw with Mystical Fire's first flame

Mystical Fire is very well suited for chasing after enemies. If an opponent's HP drops low, chase after and finish them off. That being said, pay attention to your own health and heal up with Draining Kiss whenever you're low!

After First Drednaw Until Zapdos Spawn

Target Level8 & above
Tasks・Fight opponents while behind bulkier Pokemon (Defender Pokemon if possible)
・Chase after fleeing enemies with Mystical Fire
・When your HP gets low, use Draining Kiss to heal up
・Time your Unite Move for when enemies use key attacks
・When its HP gets low, try to get the last hit on Drednaw with Mystical Fire's first flame

Mystical Fire will allow you to escape from disadvantageous battles with relative ease. This makes going after Wild Pokemon on your enemy's side of the field possible - you'll want to gain as much of a level advantage as possible before Zapdos. Note that Sylveon's Unite move has a natural cooldown of 139 seconds, so you might want to refrain from using it after 4 minutes.

2:00 - 0:00 Zapdos Fight

Tasks・Fight opponents behind Pokemon with a higher Defense (Defender Pokemon if possible)
・Save your Unite Move to dodge important enemy Unite Moves
・Focus on saving moves to get the last hit on Zapdos

The Zapdos battle at the end of the game will likely be a place where Unite Moves fly. You'll want to use your Unite Move to adroitly dodge the most lethal of your enemy's attacks. Stick with your Defenders, coordinate with team members and use your Buddy Barrier shields to win the fight.

How To Play Against Sylveon

・Fight Sylveon up close! One of its main strengths is its long range - Hyper Voice deals more damage the farther Sylveon is from its target. Try to dash toward it and fight it in melee range!
・Try bullying it while it's still Eevee. Consider skipping an Aipom and trying to steal a Wild Pokemon from Eevee's side. Delay its evolution (at level 4)
・If it's running Calm Mind, at level 12 it will be able to entirely negate the damage of one move. Make sure you don't use your most important skill right before this.
