Pokémon Unite Balance Update

Pokémon Unite has been out for two weeks and it has finally received its first notable update. The Pokémon Unite balance update features a variety of bug fixes, changes to some current Pokémon, and a test release of the Spectate feature.

Pokémon, such as Gengar and Cinderace, who dominate the current meta, have received some nerfs. While others who have been out of the selection pool have received buffs of their own—this notably includes Wigglytuff, Talonflame, and Venausaur.

Charizard, who feels like one of the more balanced Pokémon, will receive buffs to multiple skills. Likely establishing him as the premier all-arounder moving forward. Check out the full patch notes from the official website below:
