Gardevoir Release date announced

Gardevoir Release date announced

Good news to psychic-type fans out there!

A fan-favorite, Gardevoir, is dropping tomorrow, 7/28/2021, for pokemon Unite.

Who is Gardevoir?

Gardevoir is a fan-favorite psychic-fairy type pokemon who (in the main series of games). It is probably safe to assume this pokemon will have special attack-based moves in Pokemon Unite. Most “mage” type pokemon seem to point in that direction (Pikachu, Eldegoss, Gengar, etc.)

Gardevoir move set Pokemon Unite

Move One


Attacks with a straight blast in a designated direction

Cooldown – 4.5 seconds


After you hit an opponent or when the move has traveled its max distance, it creates a circle, dealing damage to enemies in the area – decreasing the movement speed of enemy pokemon for a short time.

Cooldown – 7 seconds


The user attacks while moving backward, creating distance. This doubles as an escape/position adjustment tool. When it hits, this move deals damage to enemy pokemon in a cone shape, leaving pokemon closest to the user stunned for a short period of time.

Cooldown – 6 Seconds

Move Two


The user warps to a designated area. Once they get there, the damage is increased for the first basic attack.

Cooldown – 11 seconds


An attack that strikes three times in front of the user in an AOE style. This attack can land on multiple enemies at once.

Cooldown – 11 seconds

Future Sight

A delayed explosion occurs. When this hits enemy pokemon, it shortens the cooldown of the attack.

This sounds like it might end up being something like Gengar’s “Hex” attack that can have a one-second cooldown if hitting enemies inflicted with his status effect. It could mean a potentially devastating attack in team fights for Gardevoir.

Cooldown – 10 seconds

Unite Move

Fairy Singularity

Gardevoir’s unite move. This “warps space” in a designated area, bringing enemies closer to the center of the blast. Once the warp space disappears, pokemon is knocked back and dealt damage.

This sounds like another CC attack team fight beast of a move. We’re excited to see the impact this has on the game as it moves forward.


Seems like Gardevoir is going to play as an absolute CC beast. The downfall of the champion (balance) is the long cooldowns for her attacks. No telling how strong her base attacks will be, but it seems like Gardevoir is a new, different type of pokemon that we expect to play just as well as all the others.

More pokemon releases for pokemon unite coming soon!

This is the first of the three that were meant to be included in the game in the first place but didn’t make it in at launch – Gardevoir, Blastoise, and Chancey.

According to data mines, we have Eevee on the way also who will transform into only Sylveon (at the time of this writing).

Are you excited to play Gardevoir?

She’s a favorite of ours here!

Among Us removes task bar live updating – sticking only to meeting updates

Among Us removes task bar live updating – sticking only to meeting updates

Sick and tired of getting called out fake swiping your card on common tasks in admin? Well you are in luck! Among Us devs have heard our cries of BS and have added the option to have the task bar only update during meetings. 

We tried this out last night with a few of the homies from our discord and can assure you,, the imposters are harder to detect than ever! We’re excited to see how this game continues to grow. Can’t lie, it was a bit BS when you were able to simply wait to see if the task bar went up when someone pretended to do card swipe in admin. There are a few people we knew who became the card swipe POLICE because of it!

Shout out to the devs of Among Us on continuing to support the game and make changes that are making it better than ever.

Microsoft Acquires Bethesda for $7.5b | What it means for us as gamers

Microsoft Acquires Bethesda for $7.5b | What it means for us as gamers


Microsoft has just acquired Bethesda Studios for 7.5 billion dollars

What does this mean are PlayStation Gamers? Probably that they won’t be able to play the newest installment of Elder Scrolls, Elder Scrolls 6. But for those who were planning on playing the new Elder Scrolls game on their PC, it will probably have very little effect.

If you have been playing PC and you have the Xbox app downloaded, you’ll probably have realized by now that you can do many of the things you can do with an Xbox right on your PC. For PC players this is great. The new Halo game will most likely be following suit of Gears of War and be dropping on PC at the same time that it drops on the Xbox. We can now probably expect the same thing for Elder Scroll 6. It will be on PC maybe even streaming from Xbox with no download required when it comes out. However, we do not have confirmation of that that it’s just speculation.

We will be continuing to follow this story as it develops and what it means for gamers on Playstation as well as Switch, PC, and Xbox. Please keep it locked to Sweatpants Gaming. Talk to you soon.

Cresselia, Zapdos, and Arcticuno arriving in raids this month!!

Did you (like us) miss your chance at the Gen one legendary birds like Zapdos and Articuno or other fan favs like Cresselia? Well this month is your chance to get back in on the action and snag them for yourself! After our long hiatus from the game, we love that they’re dropping these awesome legendaries back into the game.

Read below for some information on when and where you will be able to find Cresselia, Zapdos, and Articuno this month, as well as Heatran, of course, which is old news at this point!

When will Cresselia, Zapdos, and Articuno be dropping in September?


Cresselia will be coming to raids near you September 10-18, 2020 


Articuno will be coming to raids September 18-25, 2020


Zapdos is on the way to finish up the new raids from September 25 – October 2, 2020


Will Moltres be rounding out the set of legendary birds for 2020?

Being that Articuno is “UNO,” Zapdos is “DOS,” and Moltres is “TRES,” we can only assume. It would be as simple as one, two, three… but we will keep you posted once we know for sure.

Thanks for reading and good luck catching those legendaries.
