Tips and tricks for Boss Rush mode in Pokemon UNITE
Pick the best Pokemon for Boss Rush
The key to winning matches in boss rush mode is selecting the proper Pokemon in your team. The best Pokemon to use in boss rush mode are Slowbro, Gardevoir, Delphox, Decidueye, Blissey, etc. These Pokemon deal comparatively higher damage than other Pokemon, making it easier for the trainers to defeat the boss Pokemon.
Get behind Zapdos and Articuno during their attack
With attacks like Brave Bird and Ice Beam, Zapdos and Articuno can deliver significant damage to your team. Moving behind during their attack is a good technique to save yourself from damage. Taking cover when needed and attacking simultaneously will make it easier for the players to clear this wave.

Make the best use of berries
Berries will periodically spawn throughout the map during the whole battle. Whenever you are low on health, use berries to regenerate your health. However, wasting these berries by recovering unnecessary health can cause trouble for your teammates when they might need them.
Fill up the stun meter
Each Boss Pokemon has a Stun meter under its health bar. Once filled, the meter will leave the Pokemon stunned for a short period. It creates a massive opening for the players to coordinate their attacks and take down the Boss Pokemon fast.
Include healers and defenders in your team
The Boss Pokemon deals a massive amount of damage on the Pokemon of the trainers. To absorb this huge wave of damage, having a defender on your team is a must. Defenders typically have higher health points and can survive longer during the battle. On the other hand, having a healer is also a must during the battle as they can provide good support to the team by constantly healing them.
