    The first official Group Match for Pokkén Tournament DX concluded this past Monday, with hundreds of players competing for one of the top 100 spots. Players who placed in the top 100 have received their special titles for their accomplishments, so if you managed to snag a top 100 spot, go check out your new title!
    You can find the results for the top 100 of the FSBC Aura Blast Cup below. We will also be posting about the 2nd official Group Match - the FSBC Shining Feather Cup - later today, so be sure to check back later! There will be a couple differences, including a new participation prize and a different format (Team Battle)!
    Editor's Note: It has been brought to my attention that there were separate Groups for European and Japanese players, which is why there are only North American players in these rankings. Please note that these results are for the North American version of the FSBC Aura Blast Cup specifically!

    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? Be sure to share them with us on the forums!
    There are many more tweets regarding the new update, too! Check out the #PokkenTournamentDX hashtag on Twitter and the forums for more.

    The highly anticipated 1.1 patch for Pokkén Tournament DX has now been released!
    Be aware that on the new patch, previous replay data from the old patch will no longer work, so save your clips before you update! 
    Main changes include:
    3v3 mode added to Online Friendlies, Online Group Match and LAN mode.
    Record & Playback feature added to Training mode
    Info display settings added - (Can change whether or not you see win percentages and losses or just match wins on online match records. Turned to only match wins by default, can be changed back to how it was in Profile Settings of My Town.)
    Individual Pokemon Bug fixes and the rest of the patch notes can be viewed here

    The special beach-side edition of North California's premier local tournament - Burst Attack! @ Thalia Beach - took place earlier this month. FangShaymin put together a highlight video for the tournament's Top 8, which you can find on the 21 Hits YouTube channel.
    In case you missed the event, you can find the full VODs on FangShaymin's Twitch.
    If you enjoyed the Top 8 Highlights, consider subscribing to 21 Hits. You can also follow the editor on Twitter.

    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:
