Brand new held items are headed to Pokemon Unite. In the mobile MOBA, the held items serve practically like runes in League of Legends, providing essential stats to make up the base of a playable pick. And brand new held items means for more creative build paths alongside potential changes in the future meta.

Though there’s little to no information officially available regarding these new items, ElChicoEevee discovered images of the held items within the data of the Pokemon Unite beta. One appears to look like a ring, while the other looks somewhat like an urn.
ElChicoEevee also found the base stats and descriptions for both of the items. According to his datamining, the ring is called a Cursed Bangle, while the urn is called a Curse Incense.
Pokemon Unite new held item: Curse Bangle
The Curse Bangle item description states “When Attack-based damage is deal to opposing Pokemon, their HP recovery is weakened by 20% for a short time. The HP recovery effect is weakened for longer when dealing damage to opposing Pokemon with Attack-based basic attacks.”
This seems to be an anti-heal type of weapon, catered to damage carries who like to basic attack. The stats for the item provide Attack — in essence physical attack. It’s difficult to say how much this will change the meta, since Pokemon Unite ranked is a blind pick based game.
In essence, it’s hard to tell if the enemy will even have healing on their team. And since anti-heal is very much a counter-pick oriented stat, it may not see that much play in ranked. But competitive play is a completely different matter.
Pokemon Unite new held item: Curse Incense
Pokemon Unite Curse Incense desription states “When Sp. Atk-based damage is deal to opposing Pokemon, their HP recovery is weakened by 20% for a short time. The HP recovery effect is weakened for longer when dealing damage to opposing Pokemon with Sp. Atk-based basic attacks.”
This is essentially the special attack version of Curse Bangle. And similarly, it’s difficult to say whether this will be meta or not in Pokemon Unite ranked due to the fact that the game is blind pick. Therefore, players don’t really know for sure if the enemy will have a healing support or not, meaning there will be safer held item options to choose from.
These held items seem to be unique to Pokemon Unite. In essence, unless the author is mistaken, they’ve been made exclusively for the game, rather than having been pulled from an original Pokemon mainline series entry.
Keep in mind these are datamined information. Nothing has been officially revealed or announced, therefore the items may launch in a different state then shown here. But ElChicoEevee is a very reputable and accurate dataminer in the Pokemon Unite community. His accuracy with these leaks is almost perfect, thereby making both Curse Bangle and Incense very likely to join the mobile MOBA.
