pokemon unite, multiplayer game from pokemon, went quiet a while back and it’s safe to say that the developers are working on something big. True to the point, with the announcement of Leafeon, Umbrian, and Intellion coming to Pokémon Unite very soon that might make a lot of sense! Along with new Pokémon coming to Pokémon Unite, we’ll also be celebrating the Eevee Festival, which runs from May to June 2023.
Lephion, Umbrian, and Intellion: New Additions to the United Roster
While Umbrella and Leafeon will join the roster, an addition was announced to add Intellion to the game in the coming months. Umbreon will be available to play in the game starting May 25, 2023, while Leafeon will be added as a playable character to the game on June 8, 2023. As yet. Although Leafeon and Intelion are confirmed to be coming to Pokémon Unite, only Umbrian has its moveset available online. See details of its moves and abilities below.

The Umbreon is one of the first new variations of the Evolution line that was introduced in the second generation of the game where you must evolve it over a specific period of day after maxing out your Friendship. Umbrella has a unique set of skills that will be very useful in the game and may actually be too OP for it.
Efficiency (EV), anticipation – When a Pokémon is pushed, thrown, or left unable to act, that effect is negated. This ability has a cooldown after it triggers.
capacity (umbrella), inner focus – When a Pokémon is pushed, thrown, or left unable to act, that effect is negated. For a short period of time, the Pokémon also becomes immune to obstacles, and its Defense and SP increase. def is increased. This ability has a cooldown after it triggers.

Swift (First move): Have the user shoot star-shaped rays, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and marking them. The user’s movement speed is increased when it is near a mark marked against an opposing Pokémon. When the user deals damage to a marked opposing Pokémon, its next basic attack becomes a boosted attack.
Fake Tears (Step 2): Have the user pretend to cry, dealing damage to nearby opposing Pokémon and lowering their defense and SP. def. Also provides a shield to the user.
Mean Look (First Step Upgrade): Has the user pinned an opposing Pokémon with a dark, grimy look. For a short time, the opposing Pokémon becomes surrounded by a black sphere that it cannot leave. When the user is in the Black Zone, his or her basic attacks become boosted attacks, and do more damage.
Upgrade: Increases the duration of the Black Zone.
Foul Play (First Step Upgrade): User is Charge, deals damage to the opposing Pokémon, it hits and reduces their movement speed. If Charge hits an opposing Pokémon, the move can be used again. If this move is used again, the user sweeps in front of themselves with their tail, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon, reducing their movement speed, and knocking them over. The move’s second phase deals increased damage based on the attack the opposing Pokémon hit in the first phase. The higher their attack range, the higher the damage.
Upgrade: The user’s next basic attack becomes an enhanced attack after using this move.
Desire (Second Step Upgrade): Whether the user wishes for an ally Pokémon. For a set amount of time, that ally pokemon takes less damage, then afterwards, the wish is granted and restores that pokemon’s HP. If the target ally Pokémon is knocked out before the wish is granted, a different ally Pokémon near it takes the wish instead.
Upgrade: Further reduces the damage taken by the targeted ally Pokémon. Also increases the amount of HP restored when a wish is granted.
Girh (2nd step upgrade): Have the user shout as if shouting about something, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in its vicinity and reducing their attack, sp. ATK, and movement speed. Also provides a shield to the user. The user continues the shout for a set amount of time, then it lets loose a final shout, rendering opposing Pokémon in the vicinity unable to resist and further reducing their attack and SP. atk. assault and sp. ATK may decrease.
Upgrade: Extends the duration of the final shout that the opposing Pokémon is unable to perform.
Moonlight Prance (Unite Step): Have the user jump and absorb the shields of opposing Pokémon in their vicinity, taking them for themselves. Then, the user lands, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them unable to act. After a short period of time, when a shield is passed to an opposing Pokémon in the area of effect, the user absorbs a portion of it and takes it for themselves. When the user is not in combat, it continuously recovers HP.
Umbrella seems to be built to last in battles considering its unique moves, especially with its Unite move, Moonlight Presence which removes all shields in the area of effect. Also supported with moves like Wish which can restore HP and provide a shield or Snarl and Foul Play which can finish off your opponents and provide a decent amount of damage output. There are also moves that can immobilize your opponents with the use of Mean Look which traps your opponents in the black zone leaving them unable to block. In the right hands, umbrellas can be a talisman. Make sure you are equipped with the right held items to be as effective as you can be and also the right battle items (where we highly recommend the eject button) so you can position yourself right as your opponents will only strengthen your shield for you to overcome them).
Another announcement was made for Pokémon Unite and Eevee fans are celebrating with the upcoming Eevee Festival from May 22nd, 2023 to June 22nd, 2023. Similar to the Pika Party event held earlier, the map will be filled with EVs and Gigantamax. Eevee will appear as the Pokémon to be defeated in place of Zapdos and Rayquaza in the center of the map.
