In Pokemon Unite, Trainers can equip up to three items to their Pokemon. The carried objects give your character a stat bonus during the entire match.
- Held Items are selected before each battle, and can not be changed once the fight has started. Players can unlock more items by purchasing them in the game’s own shop.
- Each Held Item can also be upgraded to increase the stat bonuses using in-game currency. According to TiMi Studios, each one can be upgraded up to Level 30.
Given that each Pokemon has its own set of special abilities that can also buff stats, finding the right combination of items to stack up these bonuses is key to outplaying your opponents.
So, there you have it, that’s everything you need to know about Held Items and how they work in Pokemon Unite.
