A new set of Pokemon have rotated in as part of Pokemon UNITE's weekly Free Rotation feature.

As always, Pokemon UNITE has a new set of combatants for players to try out as part of this week's Free Rotation period. Four new Pokemon have become available and will remain that way until late next Sunday, Sept. 26. We recommend players who've wanted to try out the Pokemon listed below do so before the week is up.

Here is the full list of currently free Pokemon in Pokemon UNITE.

Pokemon UNITE Free Rotation: Sept. 19-25

The Pokemon currently available for free rotation this week are:

  • Lucario
  • Absol
  • Cramorant
  • Crustle

For those unfamiliar with any of these Pokemon, we've put together a short analysis of each, below.

Lucario is a melee physical all-rounder that prioritizes regular attack over special attack. It is one of the hardier middle section—or "jungle"—natives with a specifically interconnected kit. Its highest rating is in Mobility with Offense and Scoring tied for second and Endurance in third. Steadfast, its passive ability, shields it from damage and buffs its speed at low health. Players can purchase Lucario's UNITE license from the Aeos Emporium for 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems.

Absol is a melee speedster who specializes in melee physical attacks—meaning it benefits more from Attack items than Sp. Attack. Its highest ratings are Mobility and Offense. Speedsters like Absol are commonly used as "junglers" who patrol the middle area and switch between top and bottom lanes. Its passive, Super Luck, increases its critical hit chance permanently. Those who enjoy playing Absol can purchase it from the Aeos Emporium for 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems.

Cramorant is a ranged special attacker that prioritizes special attack over the base attack stat. Its highest rating is in Offense with Endurance and Mobility tied for second and Scoring in third. The majority of its ranged moniker comes from its passive, Gulp Missile, which allows it to store prey upon using a UNITE move and then fire it at an opponent that deals damage to it. Players who enjoy playing Cramorant can pick up its UNITE license from the Aeos Emporium for 8,000 Aeos Coins or 460 Aeos Gems.

Crustle is well-known as one of the tankiest Pokemon in-game and a great foil to speedsters or Pokemon with an otherwise high Offense stat. It is a melee defender that puts itself directly into the line of fire to protect its teammates—a classic tank. Crustles highest rating is in Endurance with Support in second and Scoring in third. Its passive, Sturdy, gives it a defense and special defense boost whenever it takes damage. Players can purchase its UNITE license from the Aeos Emporium for 8,000 Aeos Coins or 460 Aeos Gems. It is also available as a reward for completing a set of Daily Challenges.

Pokemon UNITE releases on mobile tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 22.
