If you want to become a Zeraora main but aren't quite sure how to do it, you're in luck. Here's everything you need to know about making the best Zeraora build in Pokemon Unite, which should allow you to rack up tons of kills and goals in no time at all.
Pokemon Unite Best Zeraora Build: Best Moves
In case you didn't know, Pokemon Unite has its own specific move system. You choose one starting move out of two options at level one. At level three, you unlock the move you initially didn't pick, while you get upgraded moves at levels six and eight. At level nine, you unlock your Unite move, which is Pokemon Unite's version of an Ultimate ability.
The moves you should choose for Zeraora depend on your playstyle. You should always choose Slash first – Agility is one of Zeraora's best moves, but the high damage output of Slash will get you to level three in no time, meaning you can actually use Agility to better effect. At level six, you should choose Volt Tackle if you're an aggressive player and Spark if you're more team-oriented. Wild Charge only works if you're an expert at managing recoil, so Discharge is usually a better bet in that scenario, especially because your basic attack paralyzes enemies and makes them extra susceptible to it.
Pokemon Unite Best Zeraora Build: Best Items
Zeraora is fast and hits like a truck, so you want held items that improve its attack and speed. The Float Stone is a given, increasing your speed dramatically while you're not in combat. Aside from that, anything that boosts Special Attack – as in, not Attack, specifically Special Attack – is a pretty good bet.
As for battle items, X Attack or X Speed work pretty well. Potions don't do much for Zeraora because it's not bulky enough to benefit from them.

Zeraora's speed, traversal via Agility and Volt Tackle, and monstrous attack make it a particularly formidable silent assassin. As a result, you'll want to hang around the Jungle, farming early game levels and picking off low-health enemies throughout the match. You can group back up with your team from around level eight or nine in order to collaborate on big plays, but from levels three to eight, you should be in midlane.
