Update coming for Pokkén Tournament DX

Posted on October 18, 2017 by Jason Nason

Nintendo has announced an update coming for Pokkén Tournament DX, including some additional content.

The planned features will include Online Team Battles in which players will be able to play with friends in teams online. You can pick three Pokémon each and head into battle to enjoy heated fights with other players. Official groups from Pokkén Tournament DX will be open in the Group Match online battle mode.

Coming soon after the update, there will be official Group Matches where players can battle to receive new special titles.

In Practice Mode’s Free Training, a new function to record Pokémon movements in battle will be added. You’ll be able to control the opposing Pokémon and record its movements so you can play them back when you’re training to help improve your skills.

Several other adjustments are in development which will help to improve gameplay.

More information on the Pokkén Tournament DX will be made available on the official website in the near future.

Pokkén Tournament DX is available now for Nintendo Switch.
