Azumarill Offers Bubble Trouble in Pokémon UNITE
Tackle Pokémon UNITE foes in aquatic style with Azumarill, now available to join your team. This Melee All-Rounder is ready to wield whirlpools and warp water in battle against any opposition. Azumarill’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing increased damage to opposing Pokémon within a cone area of effect in front of it. Azumarill’s Ability, Huge Power, ensures that when it hits a single opposing Pokémon with a basic attack, a move, or its Unite Move, the hit is always a critical hit. Conversely, when Azumarill hits multiple opposing Pokémon at once with a basic attack, a move, or its Unite Move, the hits are never critical hits.
Marill and Azumarill’s Moves
At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Marill can learn Tackle and Bubble.
When using Tackle, the Aqua Mouse Pokémon charges forward, damaging any opposing Pokémon it hits along the way and rendering them unable to act for a short time. When attacking with Bubble, Marill sprays bubbles in a cone, damaging opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. Marill can still move around while using the move.
At Lv. 5, Marill evolves into Azumarill, and Bubble can be upgraded into one of two equally aquatic moves: Whirlpool or Aqua Tail.
Whirlpool generates four small whirlpools that swirl around Azumarill as it moves. If one of these whirlpools hits an opposing Pokémon, the whirlpool deals damage to it and restores some of Azumarill’s HP. If the whirlpool hits a Pokémon on the opposing team, however, even more HP is restored to Azumarill. Whirlpool can be upgraded to reduce its cooldown and increase the amount of HP restored to Azumarill.
Bubble can also be upgraded into Aqua Tail. This move increases the speed and area of effect of Azumarill’s next three basic attacks. If these attacks hit from a distance, they deal increased damage, restore Azumarill’s HP, and can ignore the Defense stat and shield effects of opposing Pokémon that are hit. When Aqua Tail is upgraded, Azumarill’s next three basic attacks after it’s used will also reduce the cooldown of all of Azumarill’s moves when those attacks hit an opposing Pokémon from a distance.
At Lv. 7, Azumarill can also upgrade Tackle into one of two different moves: Play Rough or Water Pulse.
Play Rough increases Azumarill’s movement speed for a brief time and changes Azumarill’s next basic attack into a lunge that targets one opposing Pokémon in range and delivers repeated blows to it. This flurry of hits damages the targeted Pokémon and renders it unable to attack for a short time. Play Rough can be upgraded to reduce its cooldown and further increase Azumarill’s movement speed when it’s used.
Tackle can also be upgraded into Water Pulse, which has Azumarill shoot a pulsing blast of water in a forward direction. When the blast hits an opposing Pokémon, it decreases that Pokémon’s movement speed and deals damage to all opposing Pokémon in an area of effect around the Pokémon it hit. The blast of water then automatically bounces to another target if one is available. Including the first Pokémon hit by the attack, the blast of water can bounce between up to three opposing Pokémon consecutively, and each hit behaves in the same way as the first. While the blast of water is traveling, Azumarill can perform a short rolling dash in a designated direction. Water Pulse can be upgraded to increase the maximum number of targets that the blast of water can bounce between by two.
Azumarill’s Unite Move, Belly Bash
Bash the opposition with Azumarill’s boldly audacious Unite Move, Belly Bash. When Azumarill unleashes Belly Bash on an opposing Pokémon, it pounds its belly three times, creating a shield for itself. With each pound, Azumarill loses HP in exchange for increased Attack. Azumarill can still move while it’s pounding its belly. Afterward, Azumarill charges at the opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to and throwing all opposing Pokémon it hits while charging.
