What is Pokémon Unite’s Eldegoss moveset?

As Eldegoss levels up, you get to choose from a range of moves to use in battle. This Pokémon excels when dishing out heals and supporting the team. So we’ve outlined which moves we believe suit Eldegoss the best in a support role.

From levels one to three, you get to choose between two moves. However, don’t worry too much, as you will eventually get to use both. We recommend you pick leafage first, so that you can dish out some extra damage to farm experience. Then, use synthesis to get a little bit of extra health when needed.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Leafage Ranged 4.5 seconds Hurl leaves at a target to decrease its movement speed for a short time
Synthesis Recovery Eight seconds Restores the HP of Eldegoss and all nearby allies

As soon as you reach level five, you have another decision to make, and this one is slightly harder than before. In our opinion, the best choice is pollen puff. This move can heal your allies and also deal a little bit of damage to your foes. It’s worth noting, the move you choose will replace leafage.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Pollen puff Ranged Six seconds Throw a pollen puff that attaches to a Pokémon. This puff restores HP for allies, and deals damage to enemies.
Leaf tornado Ranged Nine seconds Attack with a leafy tornado, while increasing ally movement speed for a short time

Now it’s time to make your final choice. As we’re focusing on heals and support with this Eldegoss build, we recommend you go for cotton guard to create some strong shields and absorb incoming damage.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Cotton guard Buff Seven seconds Protect Eldegoss and all nearby allies with cotton. This absorbs damage and restores HP
Cotton spore Area Ten seconds Gather spores that increase your movement speed. After some time, the spores explode and deal damages to enemies, before throwing them and slowing their movement speed

When you’re surrounded by enemies and the situation looks dire, it’s time to use your unite move. Cotton cloud crash allows Eldegoss to float off into the distance covered in a cloud of invincibility.
