    The patch notes for the highly anticipated first update to Pokkén Tournament DX have been official released! 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. 
    The Pokemon bug fixes have been translated by Pentao 

    The patch is said to arrive Mid-November
    For the official Japanese release of the patch notes, see here
    A link to the official English release of the notes will be provided when available.

    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:

    Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to the first ever Weekend Watchlist on Pokkén Arena! Like Blue Link's Morning Discussion post from the other day (which you should go read and respond to, by the way), the Weekend Watchlist is something that the Writing Team has been discussing for a little while now. These posts will (normally) happen each Thursday before a major tournament, and will give viewers everything they need to know to enjoy Pokkén during the weekend. DreamHack Denver is taking place this weekend, so let's give this Weekend Watchlist idea a shot!

    Today, we will be starting a new type of thread here in Pokkén Arena called "Morning Discussion". Once in a while, our front page team will pick a relevant topic about the game and invite people in the community to discuss about it.
    Let's begin with a subject that a lot of people are discussing lately, Synergy Burst Meter. As you all may know, every character has a different size for their Synergy Burst Meter, meaning each character takes a different amount of points to fill that Meter. Additionally, every Synergy Burst has a different duration time, with some ending quicker than others. BurnsideBH (one of the most active players of the community) did two amazing charts that illustrates how that work:
    What are your thoughts about it? Do you think the developers did a good job balancing this unique and important mechanic? Or maybe some adjustments are necessary? Let's discuss on the comments section below!
