Blastoise is the next Pokemon coming to Pokemon Unite that will complete the Gen 1 starter trio alongside Charizard and Venusaur. As of now, there is no announced release date for the water-type turtle Pokemon.
What is known is that Blastoise will be a Pokemon defender, making the defender the second role to receive a new Pokemon after the release of attacker Gardevoir. As a defender, Blastoise will likely exhibit high stamina and support while his mobility will be lacking.
Blastoise's moveset was also reportedly leaked. The Pokemon will feature a melee attack while it uses water-based long-range attacks as abilities. Supposed leaks suggest that Blastoise will have these moves:
