Pokémon UNITE reveals more information about Gyarados ahead of it joining the fray later this week – Registration for the UCS 2024 is now open!
More Gyarados information!
Gyarados is an Intermediate Melee All-Rounder Pokémon, with the Ability Moxie, which reduces all of its move cooldowns when knocking out an opposing Pokémon or assisting allies.
Teaser videos released on X this week show footage of Gyarados using Waterfall, which has the Pokémon charging three times in a row at high speed, dealing damage to all opponents that it hits. The second charge grants a shield to Gyarados if it hits, and the third charge throws the opponent in the air if it hits.
Along with Waterfall, footage of Gyarados's UNITE Move, Dragon Current, has also been revealed. This move has Gyarados dive underwater, where it can't attack or be targeted by opponents. When it uses it again, Gyarados then leaps up forcefully and attacks. If the player stays under long enough, it'll create a whirlpool where Gyarados surfaces, applying a continuous slowing effect to the opposing Pokémon it hits. If the user stays underwater for even longer, the move will create a waterspout where Gyarados surfaces, throwing opposing Pokémon it hits in the air.
