Version 1.1.0 of Pokkén Tournament DX finally released yesterday, bringing bug fixes and some exciting features such as Online Team Battles. One of the most exciting features for the competitive Pokkén community is the new recording feature that was added to the game's Free Training. The feature allows players to record their opponent's movements, opening up new labbing opportunities.
While it's been less than 24 hours since the update released, players are already filling Twitter with their findings. Below you can find a few tweets from various players, as well as a Twitter Moment from ALLISTER that compiles all of his own discoveries. Have any discoveries of your own?

With this patch, trainers will now be able to enjoy the new Team Battle mode in online friendlies, online group matches and even in LAN mode - which opens up the possibility of 3v3 brackets at future offline events.
Additionally the recording feature in training mode will also come with this patch, allowing trainers to properly study countermeasures against moves and situations that cause them trouble.
While no new major gameplay or balance updates have been noted, there are various bug fixes across the board for certain Pokemon.

Pokkén Tournament has been around for a really long time now, the Wii U version was released more than an year and a half ago (the Arcade Version is even older than that), which means there is a lot of background to the game.
BurnsideBH, one of the most influential members of the community, will be starting a Restrospective Series about Pokkén Tournament talking about the competitive history of the game, going through how the meta developed and how the game has been so far overall. The first episode premieres on November 14th and will be focused on Mewtwo.
The hosts are going to be Slippingbug, H2 and Burnside himelf, and you can watch it live on Burnside's Twitch channel:
