With 22 playable Pokemon currently available in Pokemon Unite and each one having seven different moves each, the number of skills in the game are already starting to rack up. 

All moves in the game have each of their own strengths, but some have the ability to hit a bit harder due to the fact that they can be a critical hit, offering a random chance of landing for even bigger damage. While all Pokemon have a crit built into their regular attacks, there are certain Pokemon that can dish out unexpected amounts of damage by critting with their special attacks as well.

With a long list of moves currently available in the game across the playable Pokemon, it’s likely difficult to remember every single one, never mind which ones crit. To help the community out, a player recently discovered all moves that have the ability to crit. 

These moves can crit in Pokemon Unite

Among all of the moves in Pokemon Unite, a total of 20 moves have the possibility to crit while only one move has a guaranteed crit. This means that players won’t have to worry about crits against most Pokemon in the game, but there are certain Pokemon that have a bunch of randomness built into their kit. These Pokemon might surprise some, so make sure to take notes to be prepared when facing them in ranked mode. 

Here are all Pokemon that can crit with abilities:


  • Pound
  • Double Slap 
  • Dazzling Gleam
  • Rollout


  • Rock Slide
  • Fury Cutter
  • Rock Tomb
  • Stealth Rock
  • X-Scissor
  • Rubble Rouser


  • Feint
  • Slash
  • Night Slash
  • Pursuit
  • Psycho Cut
  • Sucker Punch
  • Midnight Slash


  • Dragon Rush
  • Dragon Claw

As the Pokemon Unite roster continues to expand, players might see new Pokemon in the near future with the ability to crit through moves. Blastoise, Sylveon, Mamoswine, and Greedent are all slated to be added to Pokemon Unite
