Blastoise is the next Pokemon coming to Pokemon Unite which will complete the generation 1 starter trio alongside Charizard and Venusaur. As of yet, there is no announced release date for the water-type turtle Pokemon.
What is known is that Blastoise will be a defender Pokemon, making defender the second role to receive a new Pokemon after the attacker Gardevoir was released. As a defender, Blastoise will likely feature a high endurance and support while its mobility will be lacking.
Blastoise’s moveset has allegedly been leaked as well. The Pokemon will feature a melee-based attack while it uses long-distance water-based attacks as its abilities. The supposed leaks suggest Blastoise will have these moves:
