  2. Here are the top 5 charts of online ranked matches in the Wii U version of the game, for the month of September 2019! POINTS Perhaps unsurprisingly, even this September saw significant changes compared to the prior month: The only returning playrer is Ljunini, likely an alternate account of Lobo. They gained no less than 325 points last month. The other players above them, all of them being newcomer, are riketan, who gained no less than 12926 points last month and ended in first place, luckey69, who gained no less than 10598 points last month and ended in second place, and Jay_$lay/Jay_Slay16, who gained no less than 5072 points last month and reached third place. It's not possible to estiamte the minimum amount of points gained last month by cf7mkchaps/cf7mkchap who entered the charts for the first time as well, in fifth place. WINS There are less dramatic but still important changes in this chart as well, compared to last month: Mellocair stays in the charts and even reaches first place, having won no less than 50 matches last month. Similarly, Sella/MarioEnvy won no less than 41 matches last month and reached fourth place. The other three are newcomers that can be seen in the points-based chart as well: luckey69 who won no less than 65 matches and reached second place, riketan who won no less than 46 matches and reached thirs place, Jay_$lay/Jay_Slay16 who ended up in fifth place. Last year, the decrease in activity due to the end of the holidays led to dramatic changes that even prompted a new way of analyzing the numbers, this year the changes aren't as drastic, but are still very important. In a certain sense, these charts are affected and thus give hints about the different availability of free time during the year. Next month, it will be interesting to see if players who were in the previous months' charts like Ljunini, Mellocair and Sella/MarioEnvy wil gain enough points or wins to stay in the charts, and if some of the newcomers here will stay in the charts.

    Current feelings on gengar MU's

    One thing I sorta don't get is Charizard's advantage, I usually have super easy time against them specifically. Has this changed in DX, or have I just been fighting crappy Charizards?

  13. Well, better late than never! Here are the top 5 charts of the online ranked matches of the Wii U version! POINTS There are a few changes with respect to last month: First place is still in the hands of josue/2003minicachorro, who gained no less than 2525 points last month, another returning player is the former newcomer ryuujiid0125 who gained no less than 20072 points (!). Dmoney$/destrella3018 is a newcomer who gained no less than 1208 points last mont and reached directly 3rd place. On the other hand, it's not possible to estimate a lower bound for princess,elsa*/vic386, another newcomer who reached 4th place. As far as fifth place is concerned, unless Jalisco is full of Garchomp players owning the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament, we are likely looking at another alternate account of lobo. WINS Similar changes could be observed in this chart with respect to last month: The feat of ryuujiid0125 might be less impressive here in terms of numbers, but still having won no less than 689 matches in a month is still a nice achievement, especially considering that they almost doubled the number of wins of last month, and that number has been proven to consider more than one month of time frame. josue/2003minicachorro won no less than 89 matches last month, and that number was not enough to keep first place in this chart. On the other hand, Mellocair won no less than 68 matches and managed to reach third palce in this chart. Notably, this chart allows us to estimate a lower bound for the number of wins of princess,elsa*/vic386, with it being 67 wins. Very surprsing, however, is the return of MarioEnvy, said player had last appeared one year ago, in the charts of August 2018. It's a nice surpsise to see tham again in this chart. They had to win no less than 44 matches last month to finally return. Overall, this August there was only a slight increase in activity of most of the returning player with respect to July, with the only exception being that of ryuujiid0125. In a certain sense the resutls of the latter are quite surprising, as they don't seem to match the activity of the other players. There could be multiple explanations to this, such as constantly finding a player against which there were many wins, as the latter wouldn't show up in these charts, but ultimately those numbers don't allow us to make any considerations of this kind. In any case, the numbers reached by josue/2003minicachorro and ryuujiid0125, when compared with the numbers of the other palyers in the chart again give the impression of there being few very active palyers among a generally less active player base, it's still notable how even palyers who were disappeared a year ago from the charts like MarioEnvy managed to return, another sign of the dedication of the remaining palyers despite the more modest numeric values.

    Croagunk Character Specific CA Combos

    Well, I've never created anything on this website before, so hopefully I don't mess anything up But! Quite a while ago at this point, I was testing Croagunk's Counter Attack, and I found that it launches at a... sorta weird angle. By that, I mean it has a ton of different followups, but they branch out a lot depending by character. I posted this all to twitter quite a while ago, but it wouldn't hurt to document it here, too. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge with the other gunks, but I haven't seen anyone else really talk about or use them. you can do [CA] > 5Y > 4A, but it seems to drop most of the time if they have two buffs. you can also do [CA ] > 5Y > 6A, if you want. [CA] > 5Y > 4A, though it drops most of the time if they have any buffs. [CA] > 5Y > 6A works, still. [CA] > 5YY > 4A works, regardless of buff count. It drops for some reason if you only use 5Y, though. and of course, [CA] > 5YY > 6A. you can't combo into thief at all, but [CA] > 5Y > 6A is still an option. [CA] > 4YY works, and can go into quite a few things. you can start doing swim loops off of it, do [CA] > 4YY > 4YX, or combo into 2X. [CA] > 5YYY > ijX works on these two. It can lead into swim loops, however, since Croagunk and Weavile are both able to be hit by CA > 4YY, that is the more optimal way to land swim loops from CA. [CA] > microwalk > 5YYY > ijX works exclusively on Chandy. Weird. It's the same as the last combo, but you have to microwalk before the 5YYY. by extension, you can do [CA] > 5Y > BA on any of these guys above for a nice chunk of damage. OR, if you're feeling extra risky in that particular moment, you can try [CA] > 5Y > jA, but it only works if you get boulder or tornado. And now for [CA] > 2X, which is much less restricted, but still character specific: [CA] > 2X > 2Y works on these characters. It's the most universal of the character specific combos, and sets up nicely into a 4YX oki. [CA] > 2X works, though 2Y will not connect, as far as I can tell. And of course, there's always [CA] > 6X. It's not character specific, so it's the most reliable way to combo from CA. Hopefully this info is helpful!

  27. Thank you for sharing this! It does indeed sound like this is the last scheduled official Group Match. Hopefully more show up in the future, but for now, people should definitely make sure to participate.
  28. While it isn't specifically battle mechanics related, I figure this is enough of a guide explaining a part of the game to include here. So you're playing in an online weekly, and you're on a tear, crushing all sorts of big threats, coming up on winners' finals, and it occurs to you: "I don't stream. Most of these guys don't stream. Heck, nobody in top 4 even makes any sort of content. Nobody's gonna see my sets, this whole tournament is gonna be lost to history! Online Pokkén is the worst." Everyone always says that the biggest tragedy of Pokkén is lack of spectator mode, and that there's no good way to stream online tournies and that people have tried and failed and the replay upload system is just too dumb and etc. I've been testing some things, and after doing a few dry runs with our wonderful Thunderdome host Jolts, I'd like to challenge some of those assumptions. It requires a bit of discipline and 1:1 communication, but after practicing it just a couple times, it is entirely possible to reliably collect an entire Bo5 set's worth of replays from another player in less than a couple minutes -- short enough downtime for a streamer to reliably be picking up a string of sets live during an online tourney, and importantly, pretty much all of them when they become fully serialized (i.e. top 3-4). Note that the criticisms of Pokkén's replay-sharing capabilities are ENTIRELY deserved -- this is quirky, non-intuitive, and way more rickety than it SHOULD be for a game this decade, but it CAN be done, and the process, while seemingly a little daunting at first, is really pretty simple. To wit: For the PLAYER: Go to Online Battle --> Replay --> Battle Log Locate the FIRST GAME of your set (by default, it will NOT be at the top) Select Upload Replay Data DM the streamer/recipient at least this much info: (Friendly/Group/Ranked) (Your name) (Your character) (Your letter rank) (Minutes portion of the timestamp) E.g. Friendly, Cecily, Gardevoir, A, :24 Wait for confirmation (e.g. "Cecily vs. Jolts, a Pikachu? Got it!") from the streamer/recipient Select the next game in your set, and Upload Replay Data DM the streamer the minutes portion of this new game (e.g. "next one is :26") Repeat steps 5-7 until all games from your set are confirmed. You're done! For the STREAMER/recipient: Go to Online Battle --> Replay --> Replay Theater, wait for a DM from the player with info Fill in Battle Type (most tournies require group battle, but if the tourney allows friendly codes or you're doing match analysis for viewers, get that info from the player too) and *Trainer 1* info for character and rank; leave trainer 2 blank Search for the game with that player *and the matching minutes timestamp* This should be narrow enough search criteria to find recent matches -- you likely don't even need rank. If it is not found, fill in *Trainer 2* with the player's info and leave Trainer 1 blank. If it is still not found, wait a minute or so, and repeat #2-3/3.1. If Pokkén somehow becomes incredibly huge in a few years, you may also need to narrow the search criteria with their opponent info, too. This is not currently the case, though. Select the game and choose the "P(1/2) Battle Trainer Information" which matches the player you're receiving from View their Replays, and you should see their specific game, just like in the search results. Select and save this replay. You may see other games from their set. DO NOT save these yet. DM the player that you received their game. Back out of the player's profile so that you are back at your search results and await the next DM with a new timestamp from the player Repeat steps 4-7 until all games from the set are confirmed. You're ready to stream a set! You only have 8 replay save slots. If you are streaming grand finals and the match goes on for 9 or 10 games, you'll have to grab the first set and the reset separately. Consider having the TO tell players to pause to collect replays if a reset happens. Theory behind the process, why it works, and more caveats and limitations: These instructions are designed for first-timers who haven't done it before; the important things to remember once you've practiced a couple times are 1) initial search for first game could be in the P1 or P2 slot, 2) use timestamps to confirm you're getting the right game, 3) back-and-forth communication to grab each manual upload by re-loading the player's profile. Pokkén's online profile system will only show a maximum of 3 replay games from any given player in any given category (ranked, friendly, group, and....wireless, go figure), and even then there are two different kinds of profile screens, one of which doesn't let you get to their replays at all. Worse still, two of those game slots are reserved for auto-uploads, if you have that turned on. Only a single replay is shown, and this corresponds directly to the most recent replay you have manually uploaded via Replay Theater. But the online system is actually very quick in updating this once you've successfully uploaded a new replay. Someone actively looking at your replays while online need only re-load your profile in order to see the new upload (but the old one will consequently disappear) -- there doesn't seem to be much if any caching or delay associated with it. The minutes portion of the timestamp is the important part of the "handshake" between player and recipient, because the full timestamp will be adjusted for your timezone. This also means if either party's timezone has a half-hour or quarter-hour offset, you'll need to adjust accordingly. But this is really only relevant for Newfoundland, India, and a handful of Australian and New Zealand territories -- everyone else has whole-hour offsets. Sadly, there are several downsides. Your battle log can hold only your most recent 16 games, and you can only upload from your battle log, not from your Saved Replays (of which you only have 8). This means you cannot assign someone to "replay collection duty" during a tournament to make streaming even more seamless by always having an experienced replay-share-person on both sides of the exchange. So if a player has never shared a set with anyone before, the burden falls on the streamer to coach the player along the way. But even so, I brought Jolts up to speed in under 10 minutes, and we were testing hiccups and explaining theory along the way. It also means that while you can always hold an entire FT5 friendly set in your battle log, your recipient cannot receive the whole thing if you went all the way to 5-4. They'll have to stream or otherwise record at least one game first, then receive the rest. Players should also be careful to pick rematch/change Pokémon/quit battle relatively quickly, as spending excessive time on the menu may end up failing to put a complete replay in the battle log. Offline off-stream sets still don't get any benefit from this technique, either, unless you're playing actual sets with wireless mode instead of LAN mode (ew, no). Also, of course, this doesn't work at all for 3v3, as for whatever reason 3v3 games are not replay-compatible. I know several people have known this was roughly how the replay-uploading system works, but I've not seen anyone actually boil it down to a process and take advantage of it to date. We do at least plan to try this out in practice for the next Thunderdome (major thanks to Jolts for guinea pigging this with me!), and I hope that having this guide/writeup in a permanent place will open up options for content creators and improvement discussions alike -- not just for streaming parts of online tournaments that would otherwise go unseen, but also for soliciting sets for match analysis, commentary practice, and anything that has needs beyond what posting a 30-second clip to Twitter can express. Happy sharing! P.S. Edited to add: if you'd like a pictorial explanation, turns out that Coro made one for PokkenSG and they've already been using essentially the exact same process for a while now.
