this is the build i run on my main and it is very strong, can one shot pretty much every squishy pokémon and some tanks too

i use muscle band because it has that big basic attack damage and early clear, and it synergizes well with your unite move
with energy amplifier, plasma gale charges so fast it is almost always up, and the extra damage is crucial for deleting enemies
weakness policy gives you extra attack and hp, which is nice

you could replace muscle band with razor claw for slows or whatever (maybe good with spark-discharge), attack weight if you are a confident stacker, buddy barrier if you want to live when uniting, or float stone for mobility and invading enemy jungle (with x speed).

x attack is a great tool for one shotting and taking down tanky enemies
some other decent items:
- full heal is good if you don't wanna get stunned when trying to do the combo or to escape with volt switch
- x speed or eject button for mobility and invading
- fluffy tail to secure wild pokémon and objectives (although x attack does it better)
- and maybe even potion to live

early game on theia sky ruins you clear the first jungle rotation by stunning wild pokémon with slash, and agility for mobility
rotate to either lane to assist your teammates and secure the swablu and altaria at 8:50 minutes
go back into jungle and after clearing the second rotation, head to the middle and secure the swablu and altaria that spawns there at 8 minutes
try to hit level 9, or at least 8, before 7:00 minutes with escavalier's orange aura (why do folks call it red buff, it's obviously orange)
(edit: since rayquaza got a stupid buff that makes it feel more like zapdos, you should be rotating to the bottom regis most of the time, but that doesn't mean regieleki isn't viable, you got to have good macro)

you can use this strategy on remoat stadium too, except you rotate to bottom lane after first jungle clear
go back into jungle after 8:50 and after clearing second jungle gank top lane, then after 7:20 combee and vespiquen, grab a jungle buff and head bottom for drednaw while being level 8 or 9

here is the combo that allows zeraora to one shot: x attack, volt switch into enemies, plasma gale, then discharge while using basic attacks in your plasma zone
land plasma gale at the nearest enemy so you can stay in the plasma zone, don't let the unite move get away from you, you won't get those big basic attacks, discharge won't stun and you'll get cc'd super hard

a good boost emblem loadout for zeraora is 6 brown, 4 white, 2 blue and 2 purple, with the following emblems:
machamp, primeape (or sandslash), marowak, nidoking, nidoqueen, kabutops (or poliwrath), pidgeot (or kangaskhan), fearow, tauros (or meowth/persian), and gyarados
(the one in the video is decent as well)

check out this excellent video below where krashy, a pokémon unite youtuber, explains how to use this build (as well as the discharge pull combo) and provides a great game, his zeraora is insane

Works Well With


zeraora is pretty frail, so some healing or cc immunity from blissey would be nice


snorlax has some great cc moves, can keep enemies at bay while zeraora proceeds to blow them up


lucario can help zeraora fill some gaps with its damage and bulk
