Overview Of Builds

Razor Leaf For Powered-up Attacks

Razor Leaf is a power buff as it not only increases your basic attack & speed, but it also gives you the ability to hit multiple Pokemon at once with your basic attacks - something very unique to Decidueye in Pokemon Unite. This move gives you the opportunity to be both a sniper and a multiple damage-dealer in teamfights.

Shadow Sneak For Damaging Debuffs

Shadow Sneak really packs a punch as not only is it a Sure Hit, but it also debuffs the unfortunate enemy that it hits - slowing them down and lowering their defense in the process. This is great for preventing enemies from escaping, and paired with your onslaught of attacks from Razor Leaf, you're bound to see some quick KO's.

Items For Max Performace

Decidueye's attacks are maximized with Muscle Band, & Razor Claw - enabling you to deal high-damage hits for quick KO's. Equip Buddy Barrier so you and your whole team can get shielded whenever you use your Unite Move. You can also consider swapping Razor Claw or Buddy Barrier with Scope Lens if you want more critical hits.

Spirit Shackle For Fully-Charged Hits

Spirit Shackle gives you the option to either attack immediately or charge to a certain degree to deal more damage and slow your enemies down. Either way, this move gives you the option of going easy with quick hits, or more strategic with fully charged hits depending on the situation at hand.

Shadow Sneak For Damaging Debuffs

Shadow Sneak really packs a punch as not only is it a Sure Hit, but it also debuffs the unfortunate enemy that it hits - slowing them down and lowering their defense in the process. Use it to prime your enemy for a quick KO!

Maximize Damage With Held Items

Make sure you maximize Decidueye’s powerful attacks by supplementing him with Muscle Band, Razor Claw, and Scope Lens to get those critical hits! These enable Decidueye to deal high-damage hits for quick KO's.

Razor Leaf For Powered-up Attacks

Razor Leaf is a power buff as it not only increases your basic attack & speed, but it also gives you the ability to hit multiple Pokemon at once with your basic attacks - something very unique to Decidueye in Pokemon Unite. This move gives you the opportunity to be both a sniper and a multiple damage-dealer in teamfights.

Leaf Storm For Damaging Crowd Control

Leaf Storm is a great move for both damage-dealing and crowd controlling as it attacks Pokemon in range and can shove them out of the way if you hit them at point-blank range. This move is particularly useful when pushing enemies out of the way to prevent them from scoring or even moving them further away from Wild Boss Pokemon.

Items For Max Performace

Decidueye's attacks are maximized with Muscle Band, & Razor Claw - enabling you to deal high-damage hits for quick KO's. You can also consider swapping Razor Claw with Scope Lens if you want more critical hits. Equip Buddy Barrier so you and your whole team can get shielded whenever you use your Unite Move.

Decidueye - Basics & Advanced Tips

Basic Mechanics

This section has basic tips and tricks that you must know to effectively control Decidueye.Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Basics
Secure an escape option
Decidueye doesn't have any dash moves that you can use to escape tight situations. You can use Leaf Storm to shove opponents chasing you and slow them down. We suggest using Eject Button as a Battle Item just in case you run out of speed buffs.
▶ Battle Item Tier List
Clear lanes wisely
Rowlett is vulnerable during early game. Since you'll be mostly heading to the top path, make sure to always have an ally for protection especially during Rotom clashes. Also watch out for opponents hiding in grass bushes that may attempt to gank you with Burst Attack. Keep in mind its position during team battles to deliver deadly blows to its opponents.
▶ Top Lane Guide
Take Advantage of Enhanced Attacks
Your enhanced attack count does not reset even when you use your Unite Move. Make sure normal attacks hit your target since it will not stack up if it misses or is negated by a counter move. Use it consistently to quickly lower your opponent's and wild Pokemon's HP.
▶ Special Attack and Attack Differences

Advanced Mechanics

This section is for those looking to up their play with Decidueye. Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Advanced
Positioning is the key
Use Spirit Shackle to last hit objectives. You can hide safely from the bushes while you max out your move's gauge. Since you can freely adjust the direction of its Unite Move, Nock Nock, try to aim based on your opponent's movement. You can also use this to intercept their moves and secure a KO.
▶ Teamfight Battle Tips
Predict enemy movement
Moving targets are harder to hit, especially when using a fully charged Spirit Shackle shot. Make sure to pair up with an ally that can stun or has cc effects to hold targets in place. Predicting enemy movement may also help you to time and execute moves like Shadow Sneak in slowing down fleeing enemies.
▶All Supporters List
Distance yourself from targets
Its passive, Long Reach, increases your damage the farther you are away from your target. To make the most out of this move, aim at opponents outside your line of sight and make sure to shoot from your range limit to deliver the deadliest attack you can do. It will also help Decidueye to avoid absorbing damage from enemy attacks.
▶How To Extend The Range Of Moves

Decidueye Strategy Guide

Decidueye Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
Decidueye's Leafage lets you clear lanes faster with its wide AoE range. Upgrade it to Razor Leaf so you can hit multiple targets with basic attacks. Use this to take on two or more Apoms and Combees to gain Exp faster.
Its long-range makes it easier to target distant enemies. You can even hit multiple opponents from behind obstacles using moves like Spirit Shackle or Nock Nock, securing last hits and stealing map objectives during team fights.
You can change the direction of Decidueye's Unite Move during its duration. Its extended range also enables you to deal damage to everything it passes through. You can surely KO fleeing enemies when used correctly.
Weaknesses
Decidueye can't use Astonish on spawns and enemies hiding in bushes.
Without its speed buffs or Eject Button as a Battle Item, there's no guarantee that Decidueye can escape close fights from Speedsters or Pokemon with higher mobility.
You might find it hard to target moving enemies using its long ranged moves. Moves like Spirit Shackle also takes time to reach its max charge. You may need to practice this moves in order to utilize them better during battle.

Going Top Lane Is Recommended

Decidueye Lane

Rowlet is recommended to go Top, but you may also choose to go Bottom based on your team's needs. Focus on getting last hits while playing safely from a distance in your early levels.

Rowlet (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Leafage First

Although Astonish is an equally great offensive move, Leafage is the more certain choice as it deals more damage than the former and can hit several Pokemon at once! Aside from this, it also increases your Attack & attack speed. You may choose to then follow up with Astonish which would both deal damage and slow your opponent's movements, but pay attention to your positioning!

Generally Best To Attack From A Distance

You will find that your endurance is on the lower end, especially at the early stages of the game. Avoid close fights and generally try to keep your distance as you inflict continuous damage on your opponents.

Dartrix (Lv 5~) Strategy

Focus On Farming To Level Up

Rowlet won't have much firepower until it levels up and gets access to stronger moves, so focus on farming Wild Pokemon at the earlier stages of the game and get that much needed EXP.

How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

Moves Get More Powerful From Lv7 Onward

At level 7, you'll get a choice between basic attack buffing Razor Leaf or Spirit Shackle. Your choice will largely depend on the role you want to play in your team. Pick Razor Leaf if you want to aid your teammates in annihilating stacked enemies, and choose Spirit Shackle if you want to be a sniper and aim primarily for objectives.

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

At level 8, you'll get a choice between Leaf Storm & Shadow Sneak. The former lets you deal hits from afar and gives you some CC capabilities as it can shove Pokemon that you hit at point-blank. The latter, although dealing less damage than the former, is a Sure Hit and is very useful in preventing enemies from escaping. Consider adjusting your 2nd move depending on which style you prefer.

Leaf Storm
Lv 8: Leaf StormLeaf Storm
Creates a tempest of sharp leaves, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. At point-blank range, it also shoves opposing Pokémon it hits.
Shadow Sneak
Lv 8: Shadow SneakShadow Sneak
Creates a shadow that takes hold of one opposing Pokémon in the area of effect, dealing damage to it and decreasing its movement speed and Defense for a short time. Also increases the user’s movement speed for a short time.

Decidueye (Lv 8~) Strategy

Shadow Sneak & Razor Leaf Build

With this build, you'll be able to prevent even the fastest Speedster from escaping! Begin with Shadow Sneak to debuff its movement speed and defense. This move also gives you a speed buff, enabling you to chase after a fleeing opponent. Then follow up with Razor Leaf and fire your enemy with an onslaught of basic attacks. Watch as they quickly get KO-ed before they even get a chance to escape!

Spirit Shackle & Shadow Sneak Build

This build pairs two strong moves together in a lethal combo. Start with Spirit Shackle to charge and aim at an opponent from afar. Then, once they retaliate and try to come near you, quickly follow up with Shadow Sneak for a Sure Hit and to lower their movement speed & defense. This gives you a great set-up for a good chase!

Razor Leaf & Leaf Storm Build

A build that fully utilizes Decidueye's ability to fire attacks at several opponents at once! Start with Razor Leaf to trigger your ability to fire basic attacks toward multiple Pokemon and get a few hits in. Then follow up with Leaf Storm to further the onslaught of damage to the whole stack.

Unite Move: Nock Nock

This move can be quite useful in teamfights as it inflicts damage on all enemy Pokemon around you and can even be targeted toward a specific area as you spin around in place! It's proving to be a great ult not only for for stealing the last hit on objectives but also for KO-ing surrounding enemies! What a wipeout! If you're struggling in a fight, consider saving this to try to get the last hit on Zapdos.

Teamfight Battle Tips - 3 Things To Remember

Decidueye - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will guide you on which specific Wild Pokemon to target in order, as well as what to do at the start and end of the game. This guide is based exclusively on a jungle build.

10:00~8:50

※ If the central path on your side is in the desert zone, the locations of Ludicolo (3) and Bouffalant (4) will be reversed.

Central Area
Target Level5
Tasks① Choose Leafage as your first skill.
② KO Lillipup
③ KO Ludicolo
④ KO Bouffalant
⑤ KO the 2 Corphish.
⑥ Head to the bottom path.

First and foremost, it is recommended taking Leafage as your first skill since this move deals more damage than Astonish. You can move quickly on the Central area by using the Eject Button to go over the wall. KO all the wild Pokémon in the Central Area to reach Level 5 and evolve into Dartix.

8:50~7:00

Central Area
Target Level7
Tasks① Clear the Combees and Vespiquens in the middle.
② Return to the central area.
③ KO the newly spawned Ludicolo.
④ KO the newly spawned Boufallant.
⑤ KO the 2 newly spawned Corphish.
⑥ Head back again to the bottom path.

Dartrix's performance is low until it reaches level 7. When attacking and defending against an opponent, be careful not to over extend because this could get you KO-ed if you're not careful. Make sure to aim for Level 7, where you'll evolve to Decidueye and choose Spirit Shackle as your next skill.

7:00~Until Defeating Drednaw's 1st Appearance

Target Level7
Tasks• Make sure to attack from a distance and don't get in a close confrontation with your opponents.
• When an opponent gets close to you, use Leaf storm to push them away.
• When Drednaw is on its last leg use Spirit Shackle to get the last hit.

Decidueye can get the last hit from a very long distance with Spirit Shackle. Even if you're outnumbered in a teamfights & can't get close to Drednaw, don't give up and aim for the last hit with Spirit Shackle. Also, try to quickly level up to level 9 to unlock your Unite Move.

Drednaw Guide - Spawn Time & Location

After Defeating The 1st Drednaw~Zapdos Fight & Endgame

Target Level9~
Tasks• KO wild Pokemon to raise your level.
• Make sure to attack from a distance and don't get in a close confrontation with your opponents.
• When an opponent gets close to you, use Leaf storm to push them away.
• When Zapdos is on its last leg use Spirit Shackle to get the last hit.

Decidueye's endurance is quite low, so attacking Zapdos alone might get you KO'd. We recommend attacking with an ally, and try working up to level 13 - at which point Leaf Storm will be upgraded and deal more damage.

How To Play Against Decidueye

Due to its lack of mobility, Decidueye can't make a quick escape if its position is compromised. You can take advantage of this by using Dash moves to close the gap.
Harassing Rowlett can delay its evolution to Dartrix and ultimately prevent it from reaching its power strike before the opposing team does.
Disables can stop Decidueye from its tracks and make it vulnerable to burst damage.
Move in circles to make it hard for Decidueye to aim and ultimately miss its incoming attacks.
