The official Pokemon Unite Twitter account has announced that a new healer will be introduced to the game, Blissey!
The character is a support that will heal its team and provide crowd control immunity; as a tanky character as well, Blissey can even take some damage to save allies too.
Here's everything we know so far about the next new Pokemon in Pokemon Unite, Blissey!
Release Date and Price
Blissey will come to the game on Wednesday August 18th, 2021; being the second Pokemon joining the roster this month.
If Pokemon Unite will release content as other MOBAs, we can expect a third new Pokemon in August, with fingers crossed we see Blaistoise.
You will be able to get Blissey in the Unite Battle Committee Shop, and Blissey will cost 8000 Aeos coins or 460 Aeos Gems. It's possible this new release shakes things up, however, so make sure you have a little extra if you're dying to try out Blissey on launch just in case!
Pokemon Unite's current meta seems to relegate supporters to lower tiers. Blissey might be the exception to the rule: healing, boosting allies, and slowing and knocking back enemies is a varied kit that could really push Blissey up the tier lists.
