Now that 2022 is over, The Pokemon Company and Timi Studio offered something of a year-in-review for Pokemon Unite. The company took to Twitter to share various updates on things that happened in the game throughout last year. Some of them had to do with their own work, such as characters added. However, players accomplishment and notable feats were shared. For example, it revealed the top three characters used in battles in Pokemon Unite in 2022.
The most used character from January 1, 2022 to December 22, 2022 is Pikachu. Players used the electric mouse a total of 129,186,809 times. It is a ranged attacker who has been a part of the game since launch. Second place went to Greninja, with 103,402,378 uses. Like Pikachu, that Pokemon is also a ranged attacker in the game. Finally, Charizard rounded out the top three in-game with 101,925,049 uses. It is the only odd-one-out here, as it is a melee all-rounder.
