    The second episode of From Field to Duel will air live on December 12 at 6:00PM EST. This episode will focus on Garchomp and will feature special guest RoksoTheSavage, one of the best Garchomp players out there. 
     
    What is From Field to Duel?
    Over the time Pokkén has been a thing, the metagame has constantly been evolving for each character in the roster. 
    "From Field to Duel: A Pokkén Retrospective Series" takes an in-depth look at each fighter's metagame from when the game first released, through the updates and patches, and what it is now in DX. It is hosted by prominent members of the Pokkén Community: Burnside, H2, & Slippinbug.

    In case you missed the recent news regarding Pokkén's frame data, it was discovered last week that the current frame data spreadsheet may actually be incorrect, and that every move in Pokkén may actually have 2 more frames before impact than the spreadsheet suggests.
     
    Since Milln announced the possible error, there has been a lot of discussion and media being shared on social media regarding the issue. Multiple players have taken the time to share their own findings, posting videos of themselves going frame-by-frame in their preferred video editing software. Even the original author of the frame data spreadsheet - The Apple BOOM - gave his input, explaining how and why he came up with the frame data that he did.
     
    You can find some of the tweets regarding this discussion below. We will be sure to post a final update when the frame data discussion has reached its conclusion.

    For quite some time now, Pokkén players have been able to make presentable, organized tier lists through the use of a script made by kaloncpu57. In order to make a tier list, players would need to install the Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey browser extension, add kaloncpu57's script to the extension, then navigate to the Smash Apps Tier List Maker and change the game to Pokkén Tournament. While it was great that players could easily make tier lists, some people didn't like having to install an extension they were unfamiliar with in order to use the tier list maker. This is no longer an issue, as kaloncpu57 has released his own browser extension, eliminating the need for Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey!
     
     
    Now, once you install kaloncpu57's browser extension, Pokkén Tournament will always be a game option when you navigate to the Tier List Maker app. You can find all of the necessary links below for making your own Pokkén Tournament tier list.

    The "Big Book of Pokkén Tournament Frame Data" has been around since the game released for Wii U in March of 2016. The spreadsheet details every single move for every single character in Pokkén, giving players a way to quickly find out what moves can punish a blocked attack, what moves are safe when blocked, and more. Because of this, the document has been extremely important when it comes to Pokkén's competitive growth.
     
    Recent findings by Milln - a long-time member of the FGC and a leader in the Pokkén community - show that there are fundamental errors to this frame data, however. As Milln points out in the "Proof of Concept" video below, all of Pokkén's frame data appears to be incorrect by 2 frames.
     
     
    Milln's video suggests that all attacks in Pokkén Tournament actually make impact 2 frames later than the spreadsheet suggests. In the video, he shows that 9-frame attacks - Pokkén's fastest grounded attacks - are actually 11 frames. This extends to all attacks, meaning every move in the spreadsheet is likely listed as 2 frames less than it should be. Milln has begun reviewing all of Pokkén's frame data, planning to have completed review by January 1, 2018.
     
    While this is very surprising news for competitive players, it is in no way a cause for anger or panic. As these findings affect all of Pokkén's frame data, the relationships between moves will not change. 11-frame moves are still the fastest grounded attacks in Pokkén - just as they were when we considered them 9-frames - and your options for punishing a blocked attack are still the same. The reason this is important is not so much the effect it will have on how we play the game, but rather the effect on how we discuss the game. A lot of old frame data discussion is now incorrect as a result of Milln's discovery, but saying you can punish a blocked Psystrike with Lucario's 2Y is still correct as the relative frame data between the two moves is still the same. This discovery is important for labbing and discussion going forward as the community will have to learn to use the new, more accurate frame data in the future.
     
    We will bring you more on this discovery as it comes.
     
    You can follow Milln on his Twitter to learn more about his findings, and you can find the old frame data here.

    Zyflair and FangShaymin of 21 Hits have released a video detailing Pokkén's "Restand Glitch". The glitch allows Pikachu Libre players to set up resets, leading to high damage in the corner.
     
    The glitch was initially found (or at least, popularized) by meLo back in April of this year. The 21 Hits video is great for spreading awareness and explaining what is happening during the execution of this glitch. The channel has been doing a great job of showing off really interesting Pokkén content, so if you enjoy this video, be sure to Subscribe!
