    On January 12, Canadian Pokkén player Wise (@Wise_Pokken) hosted a 50/50 pot tournament to raise money for AGDQ (Awesome Games Done Quick) and their support for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
     
    50% of all donations were donated to aid in cancer research while the remaining 50% was shared amongst the top 3 players in the tournament, who are as follows:
    1. XAbsoluted (@XAbsoluted)
    2. ThankSwalot (@ThankSwalotVGC)
    3. OrlandoFox (@Orlando_Fox)
    The full bracket and results can be found here.
     
     
    It is also worth mentioning that Gintrax (@GinGintrax) and XAbsoluted (@XAbsoluted) hosted an 18 hour stream to help raise money for the event. 
     
    In the end, the Pokkén community donated $999 to AGDQ to support the defeat of cancer once and for all!

    Guile eSports announced today that they'll be expanding their Pokkén roster with the new addition of Oreo.
    The Tri-state star will join Son_Dula in representing Guile at future events.
    With more support behind him, there's no doubt the veteran Mewtwo main will have a legendary year ahead.

    It's been revealed that the Pokémon Oceania International Championships will be the first event to host a qualifier for this year's highly anticipated Pokkén World Championships. 
    The event, taking place at Sydney Olympic Park, begins on February 9th and runs until the 11th. 
    Day One of the Pokkén qualifier will take place on Saturday 10th with some form of top cut taking place the next day. 
     

     
    More detailed information is sure to follow soon but it's very exciting to get a glimpse of what's in store for this year's circuit. 
    The mere fact that this qualifier was announced and takes place far earlier in the year than any other previously is a good sign. This is also the first Pokkén qualifier held outside of Japan, North America and Europe.
     
    More information on the event including registration and entry can currently be found here

    Version 1.1.0 of Pokkén Tournament DX brought many welcome changes, but one of the most important changes was the introduction of the Command Input Recorder. 
     
    Free Training's Command Input Recorder gives players the ability to "record" an opponent's movements. This is important as it allows players to practice various options that couldn't be consistently practiced before. It's been over a month since the feature released, and the Command Input Recorder is still leading to new discoveries and players becoming more consistent. However, it can be a bit confusing knowing where exactly to start when recording. To help with this, Double has released a new video explaining how players can get the most out of this feature.
     
    Many high level players have already shown just how useful the Command Input Recorder can be, so this video is highly recommended for anyone looking to improve at Pokkén.
     
     
    Enjoyed the video? Be sure to Subscribe to Double's channel and tell him your thoughts on Twitter.

    The first FSBC Cup for 2018 has begun! This event will take place from January 1 (today) to January 8 - longer than the first three FSBC Cups but slightly shorter than the most recent Cup. The event will use the standard 1 on 1 format.
     
    Like with all of the official FSBC Cups, there will be a special title given to all participants. Remember that to receive your special title, you must play at least one match to completion. The "League Master" titles will once again be awarded to the top 100 competitors. Good luck to everyone aiming for the top to start off 2018!

    Sorry that these results are late! Due to many of the site's writers spending time with their families and friends for New Year's (and Rightmeow and I getting engaged!), we weren't able to get these results up yesterday. Better late than never, though, so here are the results for the final FSBC Cup of 2017!
     
    The FSBC Thunderclap Press Cup was the second official Group Match to use the Team Battle format, and the first to last more than four days - this Group Match lasted ten days instead! Players who placed in the top 100 have received their special titles for their accomplishments, so be sure to check the group in-game to receive your placement as well as your rewards!
     
    You can find the top 100 players from the FSBC Thunderclap Press Cup below.
