Dragon Pulse For AoE Damage

Duraludon can aim to weaken up to 6 enemies caught in Dragon Pulse to make them more susceptible to absorbing damage. They will receive a damage marker when they get hit by this move. You can also use this as a finishing move on enemies to reduce its cooldown rate so you can use it again. The next three basic attacks are also boosted as well along with additional damage. Make sure they hit your target to further reduce this move's cooldown.

Hit Enemies With Dragon Tail

The best way to create a distance quickly when an opponent gets close is by using Dragon Tail. Duraduluon gets thrown back a few distance away. You can use up to two reserves for this move. This also boost the next basic attack so you'll deal more damage. Quite useful as an escape tool as well when faced with unfavorable situations.

Held Items For Max Performance

To increase Duraludon's performance, equip it with Focus Band to get additional defense as well as to recover 8% of the HP it had lost when it drops to low. Scope Lens will increase the Critical-Hit Rate and Damage of Duraludon's attack. The higher your attack stats, the more damage can be added. That's why you can pair this up with Weakness Policy which increases both Duraludon's HP and Attack. When triggered, this will increase Duraludon's Attack by a minimum of 2% on a limited time when you receive damage. This damage increases the more you absorb damage. This is efficient during team battles where Duraludon has a high chance to get attacked by multiple Pokemon at once.

Battle Item For Mobility

Snipe Them With Flash Cannon

Flash Cannon's range and damage is a great advantage over melee Pokemon. You can use this to kite enemies from a distance while also keeping Duraludon protected from absorbing damage. Moreover, anyone hit by the light aside from your initial target also deals damage. The next basic attack also becomes a boosted cannon attack and deals more damage while slowing down the movement speed of hit targets.

Trap Enemies In Stealth Rock

The levitating rocks from Stealth Rock are initially invisible and only gets revealed when opponents step on it. You can use this up to three times to setup traps on nearby objectives or around the lane like bombs. When they hit, opponents is dealt with damage and gets slowed down, with a chance to get stunned when hit multiple times.

Battle Items For Maximum Performance

Buddy Barrier is a great choice to get additional shield effects equal to 20% of your max HP for Duraludon and its nearby allies. Focus Band will provide additional defense and HP recovery for 3 seconds equivalent to 8% of the HP you had lost in battle. Muscle Band on the other hand increases Atk and Basic Atk Speed so you'll be able to do more along with the additional 1% damage equal to your opponent's remaining HP whenever basic attack hits.

Equip This Battle Item

Since Duraludon doesn't have much mobility in this build, you can equip Eject Button as your designated escape tool in times of need. You can also use this to quickly change your placement in battle or to get quickly to your designation.

Recommended Lanes

The number of ★ shows the level on a particular route area.

LaneRoute Details
TopTop Recommendation level:★★★
With Duraludon's high performance in the early stages, you can definitely fend for yourself against attacks from your lane opponents while actively pushing lanes with the help from Rotom.
MiddleMiddleRecommendation level: ★★・
Duraludon can quickly knock out wild Pokemon in this area and can level up fast from farming Exp safely as there's usually no team confrontations happening here. Since you need to prioritize its level progression, you can take charge of the middle lane when no one has taken it.
BottomBottomRecommendation level: ★★★
Due to its high performance in the early game, Duraludon is able to take charge of the bottom lane where fierce battles are likely to occur in the beginning from Drednaw's appearance.

Duraludon (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Metal Claw

On the start you'll have to choose between Laser Focus and Metal Claw. It's best to get Metal Claw first to use on attacking spawns than using a buff which you can get later to enhance this initial move.

Don't Be Afraid To Take The Frontlines

Duraludon has a high endurance and having no need to evolve has its advantages over its Pokemon counterparts. You can get aggressive on battling spawns with your lane opponents early on and having a Defender on your side increases your success rate on getting the upper hand in the top.

Level Up Quickly To Unlock Moveset!

While watching out for any enemies trying to score, you can attack nearby spawns to get that Exp to upgrade your initial moves. Duraludon's first power spike starts at level 5, so aim to reach this by farming on Combees and Aipoms.

How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

Not Easily Thrown Off With Heavy Metal

Thanks to Duraludon's Heavy Metal passive, you won't get easily thrown or shoved. You'll find this is particularly useful against Talonflame's Flame Sweep.

Duraludon (Lv 5 ~) Strategy

Choose Your First Move Wisely

Depending on your battle style in UNITE, you can choose between Flash Cannon and Dragon Pulse once you reach level 5. When you like to use skill shots with fast cooldown, Flash Cannon may suit you. If you don't want to aim and shoot targets, Dragon Pulse's Wide AoE may be for you. You can also consider if your team needs a pure damager or crowd controller.

Gets Immobilized After Attack

Duraludon is unable to act when it uses some of its moves like Flash Cannon or its Unite Move. This is temporary only but will leave you vulnerable to taking in damage from attacks so make sure to equip Held Items that will enhance your endurance.

Deal More Damage With Dragon Pulse!

Duraludon may get slowed down when you activate this but its worth the extra damage it can give you. This also boosts the next three basic attacks so if you need some extra firepower get Dragon Pulse.

Snipe Targets With Flash Cannon

With its range and piercing damage, Flash Cannon comes in handy with kiting and finishing off distant targets. These cannon attacks have increased range and deal damage to all opposing Pokemon hit by the beam. It also slows them down so Duraludon can quickly catch up to them.

Duraludon Unable To Move During Flash Cannon

Similar to Cramorant, Duraludon is also unable to act while Flash Cannon is still active. Thus it makes Duraludon vulnerable to getting targeted and you won't be able to dodge incoming attacks. Its best to use this when a nearby ally is there to protect you from getting burst down.

Duraludon (Lv 7~) Strategy

Change Your Build to Match Your Play Style

You'll need to consider choosing Dragon Tail or Stealth Rock - choose carefully as you will use this for the rest of the game. Ensure that your second move complements your other move to get the best build for Duraludon. Equip the right Held Items and Battle Item to improve your gameplay.

Dragon Tail
Lv 7: Dragon Tail Dragon Tail

Cooldown: 6 seconds

Stealth Rock + Dragon Pulse

Recommended Combos
Stealth RockDragon Pulse

Make the most out of Duraludon's range and wide AoE with this combo! You can work on lowering some of your enemies HP when you use Stealth Rock first to deal increasing damage overtime. Activate Dragon Pulse to send out powerful blasts to slow down enemies and make them more vulnerable to your next attack. Since you can use Stealth Rock up to three times, you can use this as your follow up attack. Enemies marked with Dragon Pulse receives extra damage so it's easier to finish them off with the boosted attack from this move as well. This combo is more efficient when used on multiple Pokemon so you'll find these moves advantageous during team battles.

Teamfight Battle Tips - 3 Things To Remember

Flash Cannon + Dragon Tail Build

Recommended Combos
Flash CannonDragon Tail

This build focuses on taking down enemies with skill shots. Start off by kiting enemies at range with Flash Cannon and barrage them with normal attacks. Once they get closer, you can use Dragon Tail to throw them back while also moving backwards to create a safe space so Duraludon won't receive too much damage, especially from melee attackers. Duraludon's normal attacks get boosted from this, so use that extra damage to finish off enemies or snipe them down with Flash Cannon again should they try to flee.

Dragon Pulse + Dragon Tail

Recommended Combos
Dragon PulseDragon Tail

This build focuses on Duraludon's dragon-like capabilities with Dragon Pulse and Dragon Tail as its movesets. You can start off with Dragon Pulse to trigger its wide AoE to deal damage. Make sure to charge it to the fullest to inflict the highest amount of damage you can. The most efficient way to employ this is during team battles so you'll be able to mark up to 6 targets to make them vulnerable to damage - plus reduce your move's cooldown rate so you can use it again. When enemies get near, use Dragon Tail to create some space. Depending on how mobile they are, you can use up to reserves for this move. Strategically, you can use this as an alternate tool to escape from enemies during fights when you got outnumbered or got pressured.

Stealth Rock + Flash Cannon

Recommended Combos
Stealth RockFlash Cannon

Set up traps on nearby goal zones or in narrow paths with Stealth Rock. Aside from the increasing damage overtime, it has the ability to stun and decrease movement speed when this move hits a target multiple times. It's also note worthy that this move's cooldown gets greatly reduced depending on the number of enemies knocked out by this move. After this move is used, the user's next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. Flash Cannon has a good range that can inflict damage to targets from a distance while also reducing their movement speed. Its a great move to use when snipping the last hits on objectives or when kiting melee targets.

Unite Move: Revolving Ruin

Duraludon creates a ring of fire around itself as it deals a concentrated amount of damage to a target with a blazing laser beam. When it hits, Duraludon gets a shield and an increase on its Attack for some time. The more enemies are hit, the more its Attack power increases. That's why its best to save this during Zapdos fight, where both teams gather around the center. Its wide area of effect is also advantageous as it can debuff multiple Pokemon at once. This way you'll also be able to decrease their movement speed so they won't be able to quickly counter the attacks from your allies.

Duraludon - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will teach you which specific Wild Pokemon to KO in order, as well as exactly what to do at various stages of the game. This guide is based on the Dragon Pulse/Dragon Tail Build!

10:00~9:40

Tasks① Choose Metal Claw as your first move
② KO the first Aipom
③ KO the next Aipom
④ KO the 3rd and 4th line of Aipoms
⑤ Head towards the middle

Choose Metal Claw as your first move to KO Aipom quickly. With this move you can easily hit both the 3rd and 4th Aipom and quickly go to the middle of the route.

Charges power before dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect. The user's movement speed is decreased while charging, but the longer power is charged, the wider the move's area of effect becomes and the more damage it deals. After the user learns this move, a damage marker will be attached to any opposing Pokemon the user damages. When Dragon Pulse hits a marked opposing Pokemon, it deals additional damage to that Pokemon for each damage marker attached to it, then removes all the damage markers. In addition, if this move knocks out an opposing Pokemon, its cooldown is reduced, and the user's next three basic attacks will each deal additional damage and further reduce this move's cooldown when they hit.
