Everything you need to know about Zeraora in Pokémon Unite

Zeraora is classified as a Speedster who specialises in melee attacks in Pokémon Unite.

Its high stats in both mobility and offense make Zeraora perfect for moving quickly around the battlefield and attacking your opponents. Zeraora's low endurance, however, means that you need to keep an eye on its HP level and be ready to make a quick retreat when necessary.

You should also always avoid using Zeraora for support, focusing, instead, on collecting Aeos Energy and scoring goals.

Thankfully, its Basic Attack will restore some of your HP on every third use and Spark, which you can select upon reaching Level 6, will also restore HP once it's been upgraded.

Best of all, Zeraora's Unite Move, Plasma Gale, causes a great amount of damage to both surrounding Pokémon and forces them away from you, which makes it perfect for clearing the battlefield. Plasma Gale also has the added bonus of creating a zone where both the range and power of Zeraora's Basic Attack is enhanced.
