Pokemon Unite is a new free-to-play game from developers TiMi Studio Group and The Pokemon Company. This game takes the world of Pokemon and fuses it with various MOBA elements from games like DOTA 2 or Heroes of the Storm. Players pick from a roster of Pokemon, which serve as the game’s champions, and battle it out to score points for their team. Whichever team earns the most points or destroys all the enemy team’s point receptacles wins the match. Following the game’s release, players can now obtain the new attacker-type Pokemon, Gardevoir. Revolving around ranged abilities and moving around the battlefield, Gardevoir is a highly offensive character with very little mobility or endurance.
How to Get Gardevoir
In order to unlock Gardevoir, you will need to purchase her from the store. When you load up Pokemon Unite, you’ll be given a small update. Once it’s done downloading, head to the store and then open up the Unite Battle Committee. From here, scroll down to the bottom and you should see Gardevoir right between Mr. Mime and Absol. This Pokemon costs 8,000 Aeos Coins or 460 Aeos Gems to unlock. Unfortunately, there’s no way to actually earn Gardevoir outside of spending in-game currency. That being said, you should focus on completing challenges and events to earn enough Aeos Coins. Hitting 8,000 coins isn’t that tricky, so here are a few tips to gathering some in-game cash so you can buy this powerful psychic Pokemon.

The most common method, at least when you first start, will be by leveling up your trainer and finishing challenges/missions. These can be found in the main menu under the “Challenge” and “Events” tab at the bottom below your Pokemon. Each of these will give you a nice chunk of Aeos Coins for usually just doing what you’d normally do in games of Pokemon Unite. These can be anything from just playing matches to defeating Zapdos or finishing certain types of matches. Additionally, you can earn a few thousand Aeos Coins by completing all the Advanced Tutorials. You should do these anyway, but they will also let you make some easy money. Plus, they only take a couple of minutes a pice to finish!
I recommend doing all of the Advanced Tutorials and Daily Challenges first, as they will let you quickly amass a lot of coins. Combining this with just leveling up your trainer and you should have enough for your first locked Pokemon in a few hours. The issue is once you exhaust a lot of these alternative methods of farming Aeos Coins you will become reliant on earning your 2,100 coins through matches. Since your capped each week, it’s imperative you hit that 2,100 amount to ensure you keep a healthy pace to unlock Gardevoir.
Gardevoir is now available for all players to unlock.
