Playing as Zeraora
The difficulty for this Pokémon is Expert, so you may want to practice with this new playable character before entering a public match. Zeraora has great offense and mobility but low endurance, this puts them in the Speedster category. Towards the beginning of the match, Zeraora can be squishy, as they don’t do a lot of damage and can be easily ganked. Make sure to level up a bit before taking on enemies. Stick to the middle of the map and focus on wild Pokémon for a while. The middle of the match is where this Pokémon really shines, if you’re able to level up quickly, you’ll be able to push your opponents back and help your team score a lot of points. Make sure to use agility to your advantage to escape risky situations.
