Goodra is about to be yet another one of the new Pokemon to join Pokemon Unite in 2023, and new videos detailed some of the defender’s moves. As a tank type of character, its goal will be to help soak up damage. Its Power Whip gets an opponent closer to it, while Dragon Pulse deals damage while increasing survivability.
First, here’s the look at Power Whip. It could be used to pull in a foe, which could make it easier for Goodra to attack it and keep it from attacking allies.
Power Whip has Goodra lash out with its horns in a designated direction, dealing damage and decreasing movement speed. If it hits a distant Pokémon, it'll pull them towards Goodra. Try following it up with Muddy Water to temporarily decrease their damage! #PokemonUNITE pic.twitter.com/gV7bCRxaBu

Goodra joins a number of other new characters who appeared this year. Comfey is a supporter who kicked off 2023 as its first new addition. During the 2023 Pokemon Presents, Zacian was revealed as the next playable character.
Pokemon Unite is available for the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, and Goodra joins as a Defender character on March 16, 2023.
