Players can also exchange Aeos gems for a premium pass, providing them with additional rewards, such as rare Holowear, when their battle pass level increases. And a premium pass plus automatically increases a player’s battle pass level by 10.
In addition to the excitement of a new battle pass, players can also get fired up for Delphox’s arrival in Pokémon UNITE. This Ranged Attacker is ready to spin, blast, and fling fire at any Pokémon who dares to stand against it. Delphox’s basic attack becomes boosted with every third attack, dealing increased damage to any Pokémon it hits. Delphox starts out each match as Fennekin, evolving into Braixen at Lv. 4, and evolving again into Delphox at Lv. 6. Delphox’s Ability, Blaze, allows Delphox to deal additional damage while at low HP by flinging a fireball at opposing Pokémon when it uses a move. This Ability goes on a short cooldown after it’s triggered.
Fennekin, Braixen, and Delphox’s Moves
At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Fennekin can learn Ember and Will-O-Wisp.
When using Ember, Fennekin shoots a small flame in front of itself, damaging opposing Pokémon that get hit by the fire. When using Will-O-Wisp, Fennekin conjures three sinister flames and launches them toward a designated area. These flames then explode, damaging opposing Pokémon caught in the explosion and decreasing their movement speed for a short time.
At Lv. 4, Fennekin evolves into Braixen. Then, at Lv. 6, Braixen evolves into Delphox, and at the same time, Ember can be upgraded into one of two ferociously fiery moves: Fire Blast or Mystical Fire.
Fire Blast has Delphox launch intense, all-consuming fire in a forward direction, damaging opposing Pokémon in the fire’s path. As the fire travels, it leaves behind a zone of flames that erupts in a delayed explosion, damaging opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. Fire Blast can be upgraded to increase the damage it deals.
Ember can also be upgrade into the move Mystical Fire. When using Mystical Fire, Delphox unleashes a special, hot ball of fire in a forward direction. The fireball explodes if it hits an opposing Pokémon, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. Mystical Fire can be upgraded to reduce the cooldown of all moves if it hits an opposing Pokémon—and if it specifically hits a Pokémon on the opposing team, the cooldowns are reduced even more.
At Lv. 7, Will-O-Wisp can be upgraded into one of two blistering moves: Fire Spin or Flame Charge.
When using Fire Spin, Delphox creates a vortex of fire in a designated area. This vortex targets the nearest opposing Pokémon and moves toward it, dealing damage over time to all opposing Pokémon caught in the area of effect for a short time and decreasing their movement speed. After a set amount of time passes, or if an opposing Pokémon is caught in the center of the vortex, the flames increase in intensity, dealing even greater damage over time and leaving all opposing Pokémon in its area of effect unable to act for a short time. Fire Spin can be upgraded to increase the damage it deals to opposing Pokémon in its area of effect after its flames have intensified.
As the name suggests, Flame Charge sends Delphox charging forward in a designated direction. If any opposing Pokémon are in range of Delphox when its charge ends, Delphox summons three flames that deal damage to opposing Pokémon and decrease their movement speed for a short time. Delphox can use this move while it’s using Fire Blast or Mystical Fire. Flame Charge can be upgraded to increase Delphox’s movement speed for a short time when it’s used.
Delphox’s Unite Move, Fanciful Fireworks
Put on a show with Delphox’s fiery Unite Move, Fanciful Fireworks. This showstopping attack deals damage over time to opposing Pokémon within its area of effect. Opposing Pokémon damaged by Fanciful Fireworks have their movement speed decreased and their HP recovery effects weakened for a short time.
