Pokkén Tournament DX Announced for Switch

June 06th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

During today’s Pokémon Direct, The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara announced Pokkén Tournament DX for the Switch.

As the “DX” in the title suggests, the game will be an updated port. However, it will not only contain all of the modes, updates and characters from the Wii U and Arcade releases, it will also feature new modes, like three-on-three Team Battles and friends-only online matches.

In addition to that, the starters from Pokémon Sun and Moon will make their Pokkén debut. Decidueye will be a playable fighter, while Litten and Popplio will be support characters. Also, unlike the Wii U version, characters will not have to be unlocked; everyone will be available from the start.

Pokkén Tournament DX will launch worldwide on September 22.

After two failed attempts, Pokémon Sun and Moon players have finally completed their first Global Mission.

Last month, the Pokémon Global Link challenged trainers all over the world to trade 1 million Pokémon through the Global Trade Station by February 14 and that goal was met in only four days.

Everyone that participates in the event will now receive 2,000 Festival Coins to spend in the games’ Festival Plaza. As a bonus for those who have a Pokémon Global Link account, they will receive an additional 2,000 Coins. Also, PGL members that make five or more trades will get five free Rare Candies.

The event is still going on, as there is a secondary goal: To trade 2 million Pokémon. If this goal is reached, all participants will receive a Friend Ball.
