Late Game

Unite Move: Fairy Charm

Level 8: Jumps, becoming invincible for a time, then landing, dealing AeO damage to all enemies in range while recovering health. Afterward, it will turn all the damage inflicted into extra health.

Tip: Despite having Hindrance Immunity, the best strategy is to wait until the Team Fight is initiated and jump to the center of the battle when more enemies are together.

Held and Battle Items

  • Buddy Barrier: This is simply the best held item in the game. A defensive item that provides a shield and HP, it's good for all Pokemon and can turn a fight easily.
  • Muscle Band: By increasing Attack, damage based on opponent HP, and even ATK Speed - the Muscle Band makes its mark as a power item for attacking Pokemon.
  • Wise Lenses: This item increases Sp. Atk. This means it benefits aggressive playstyles well, especially in combination with other attacking items.

Battle Item

  • Eject Button is the weapon of choice for most players. Despite being nerfed, the ability to blink for relocating, escaping, or chasing is simply too powerful to pass up.

Sylveon is performing better than expected. So do not hesitate if you have enough Aeos Coins to get her Unite License.
