What is the Pokémon Unite’s Greedent moveset?

Learn more about each of Greedent’s moves and find out which attack we recommend you pick up.

Greedent’s passive ability

Move name Attack type Description
Cheek pouch Passive When Greedent eats a berry, it recovers HP after the original effects of the berry. It also stashes another berry in its tail, if it gets hit, it will drop the berry

Greedent’s early game abilities

You get to use both of these moves eventually, so it doesn’t matter too much what you pick. We prefer to go for tackle first, so that you can take down enemies quickly and pick up a bit of extra experience.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Defense curl Buff Eight seconds Greedent receives a shield and drops a berry
Tackle Dash Six seconds Greedent leaps towards an enemy, dealing damage and decreasing their movement speed

Greedent’s mid-game abilities

At level five you get to choose between a buff or a hindrance. As Greedent is a defender in Pokémon Unite, it makes more sense to pick up a move that helps it out with this role. Go with stuff cheeks for some heals in a pinch, or even a shield if you’re at full health.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Stuff cheeks Buff Eight seconds Greedent drops berries that recover HP. If you have full HP, the berries create a shield instead
Covet Hindrance Nine seconds  Greedent runs towards an enemy, causing damage and throwing them backwards. If you eat a dropped berry, movement speed is increased

Greedent’s late-game abilities

Now that you’re at level seven, you have another choice to make. As Greedent excels as a tank, we recommend that you grab belch, as you can slow down enemies, deal a little bit of damage, and even heal if you’ve managed to pick up a berry along the way.

Move name Attack type Cooldown Description
Bullet seed Ranged Five seconds Greedent spits seeds at an enemy to deal damage and decrease their movement speed. The more berries you have stashed, the more damage this move does
Belch Ranged Five seconds  Deals damage and slows enemy movement speed. Any berry you have is consumed

Greedent’s end game ability

Here’s everything you need to know about Greedent’s unite move.

Move name Attack type Description
Berry belly flop Area Greedent eats a berry to recover HP, then leaps to a designated area to deal damage and push enemies back. You then eat a special berry that allows you to carry as many berries as you like for a short time, this also resets the cooldown for every move
