    Recently, the community has been putting effort into creating an extensive and complete Wiki for the game on Shoryuken Wikis.
     
    As a result from a collaborative effort from Mitchel and Shadowcat, the Wiki now has two new pages!
     
    One is dedicated to projectiles, where you can learn the priority of each projectile, which moves erase them, the property of them and of moves that can be helpful against them, and much more. Check out the link below:
     
    http://wiki.shoryuken.com/Pokken_Tournament_DX/Projectile_Priority
     
    The second one is dedicated to Support Pokémon, where you can learn what each support is capable of, going from properties like frame advantage all the way to special effects. The link is down below:

    You can help spreading the word about those pages by tweeting the tweet below from Mitchel:

    We have a huge weekend of Pokkén ahead of us, kicking off with the highly anticipated NorCal Regionals, shortly to be followed by the European Major: Respawn 6. 
    Will anyone make a big splash with the newly released Blastoise? How will the community voted players for NorCal Regionals fare in their respective brackets? Can XAbsoluted finally win a European event and break his 2nd place curse? (2nd place at 3/5 events total). All these questions answered and a load of high quality gameplay coming your way this weekend.

    You can now give your Pokkén Arena profile some updates!
     
    Starting today, Pokkén Arena users can now add Secondaries to their profile. Many players in this community use a variety of characters at a high level, and we want profiles to reflect that. To add Secondaries to your profile, click on "Edit Profile" and scroll down to "Battle Pokémon".
     

     
    This is completely optional, so if you only have one character you play regularly, feel free to leave the Secondaries section unchanged.

    On top of this, we've also enabled the About Me tab for profiles sitewide! If you click on "Edit Profile" and add text to the "About Me" section, other players will be able to see this tab on your profile. Like with Secondaries, this is completely optional, and the tab will remain hidden until you add text to this section.
     

     
    We hope you enjoy the new profile options! If there is a feature you want, feel free to let us know in the comments.

    With Blastoise's release yesterday came the next update to Pokkén Tournament DX: Version 1.3.0!
     
    The Japanese version of the official Pokkén website was updated with patch notes for this new update, but the English version of the website only featured information regarding the new content we received. Luckily for us, the lovely Japanese player Mue has translated these patch notes for us!
     
    This update mainly only featured bug fixes, so don't get too excited for major balance changes in Version 1.3.0. Enjoy!

    You ever feel frustrated against a tough opponent that was utilising a move for free? Well maybe that move listed here in BadIntent’s new video guide to punishing 10 prominent attacks in the game. 
    A strong offence isn't all that makes a champion, don't forget to lab all your defensive options!
     
     
    While the video features some Aegislash moves it doesn’t feature any from Blastoise as it was released prior to the character’s debut.
    Please support Badintent and his continued helpful content !

    It's time, everyone! The update featuring Blastoise, Mew, Celebi, and more is now available to download. If you've already purchased Pokkén's Battle Pack DLC, all you need to do is download the update version 1.3 and you'll be set.
     
    As you try out Blastoise for the first time, remember to share your findings on the forums! Documenting any discoveries related to a new character is easily one of the most surefire ways to advance the character's meta. And if you're posting on Twitter, remember to tag us @PokkenArena and use the #PTDX_BLS hashtag!
     
    We're looking forward to seeing what heights players can reach with the new Battle and Support Pokémon. See you in game!
     

     

     

     
    If you have not yet purchased the Pokkén Tournament DX Battle Pack 1, you can purchase it on the Nintendo eShop for £13.49/$14.99/€14.99.

    For those who are unaware, 2GGaming is one of the most well-known and appreciated non-profit organizations in the competitive Super Smash Bros. community. The team has consistently hosted high quality events primarily for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U since the beginning of 2016, and today have announced an exciting new event featuring Pokkén Tournament DX! 
     
     
    As confirmed in the tweet, 2GG's Switchfest will feature free-to-enter events for ARMS, Splatoon 2 and Pokkén Tournament DX, as well as a Smash event themed after the Xenoblade character Shulk.
     
    While this event unfortunately takes place during Burnside Brawl, it's an excellent option for those who are closer to California and can't make it to Burnside's event. This event is sure to be a great way to bring the competitive Nintendo Switch communities closer together!
     
    You can watch the official Switchfest announcement video below.
