Pokémon Duel Plate High Tier List

Displays a list of best and worst Plates you can have in Pokémon Duel. Tiers rank rather straight forward:

  • S Tier – the best
  • A Tier – very good
  • B Tier – OK / Situationally good

Other plates are categorised in the Low Tier list and include Mediocre, Bad and “Must Avoid” plates.

7 Double Chance R 1

9 Focus Band R 2
Select a Pokémon on the Field or on your Bench. This turn, the Pokémon cannot be Knocked Out by attacks.
15 X Defend UC 1
Choose one of your Pokémon on the field or bench. For this turn, if its opponent deals 10-100 damage in battle, this Pokémon will not be knocked out

 

Explanation

Bright Powder and Double Chance enable you a free re spin, meaning you have another chance in a huge number battles. Focus Band and X Defend enable you to get a free attack, which is an interesting option to tip the scales in your favour.

A Tier
ID Name Rarity Cost
12 X Attack UC 1
Choose one of your Pokémon on the field or bench. For this turn, it deals +30 damage
13 Pokémon Switch UC 1
Choose two of your Pokémon on the field or bench and switch their positions. Your turn ends. (You cannot select two Pokémon from the Bench)

Choose one of your Pokémon on the bench. For this turn, it can move through other Pokémon when making an MP move
41 Hurdle Jump UC 2
Choose one of your Pokémon on the field and move it over a connected Pokémon. Your turn ends.

 

Explanation

+30 damage, evading blockers and good old switcheroo, make these plates interesting in a variety of situation. Yes, the Cape costs 3, but evading blocking moves is an amazingly strong effect. Recommended to use with heavy blue/purple figures which can evade the inevitable follow-up attack. Plainly good.

Explanation

A mix of Genesect plates, interesting choices for Pokémon with big red zones (X Accuracy), defensive plates (Goal Block and Long Throw) etc… Not a stellar tier, but still very interesting.
