Zeraora is the newest entry to Pokémon UNITE and is not only super awesome thundercat, but also free to everyone who logs in until August 31st. For that reason alone, expect plenty of players to use the mythical, Electric-type Pokémon and all of its flashy kit, consisting of plenty of fast, hard-hitting attacks, similar to Pikachu and Absol.
Best Setup and Build for Zeraora in Pokémon UNITE
Zeraora is a wanderer and a jungler, able to bypass enemy lines exceptionally easily and very effectively as well. His moveset complements this playstyle to a large extent, which is why Zeraora will be mostly seen when it's time for a group fight, or when he's chasing someone down for that final blow. If you're using Zeraora, you should focus on exactly that, jumping on enemies when necessary, and farming random NPC Pokémon as much as possible for Aeos Energy and EXP.
With all of the above, it's obvious that using Zeraora will require a good knowledge of the map and a very good knowledge of each Pokemon's moveset. Otherwise, you might end up flanking someone to end up being CC to hell and vice versa. You need to read their reactions and also watch your teammates lane, to see when their abilities are on cooldown. Overall, playing as Zeraora is so much fun, but to use it as effectively as possible, a good understanding of the game is required. Do it and your team will definitely love you as you will score kills left and right. That, or you will end up being blamed for any “misfortune” in this game.
