How to get Zeraora in Pokémon Unite

If you're new to Pokémon Unite or missed Zeraora during its original release window, it's now possible to add this mythical Pokémon to your Unite License collection.

To do so you need to complete the Zeraora mission, which can be found in the 'Events menu.'

Thankfully, this mission is quite easy to complete, because all you have to do is win battles, which is one of the reasons why you're playing the game in the first place!

Here are the rewards you can earn by completing the Zeraora mission in Pokémon Unite:

  • Win 2 battles - 100 Aeos Tickets
  • Win 8 battles - 450 Aeos Coins
  • Win 16 battles - 50 Item Enhancers
  • Win 32 battles - Zeraora Unite License

It's important to note that, if you're already received the Zeraora Unite License, you'll receive Aeos Coins instead.

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.

It's important to note that, difficulty wise, Zeraora on the Expert level. For this reason, we recommend using the Practice Area to gain a better understanding of its moveset before using Zeraora in a proper match.

Good luck using Zeraora in Pokémon Unite!
