    Congratulations to all of this week's competitors!

    Hey everyone! This is the second Player of the Week post here on Pokkén Arena.
    This series aims to feature a different member of the community each week. We'll include information about the player like their region, accomplishments, best sets, and more. We hope you enjoy!
    Without further ado, here's the second featured Player of the Week on Pokkén Arena - Antwerp!
    Antwerp is a strong Sceptile player from Victoria, Australia who dived into the Pokkén Tournament scene around 2017. He played for about a year and a half before knowing the community existed, while just playing ranked and watching VODs.
    Despite being a talented player, he has no background in competitive gaming. Before Pokkén, Antwerp played both Super Smash Bros. and TEKKEN casually. Because he’s still in high school, he tries his best to balance academics and Pokkén. Spending a lot of his time in the lab, he has posted numerous videos online showcasing incredible knowledge with multiple characters. Watching these clips, you can easily recognize his high execution and creativity.
    Other than being a training mode fiend, he is definitely a player to look out for in the competitive scene. Some of his notable results include second place at Battle Arena Melbourne 10 and an incredible top 4 placing at his first major tournament, the 2018 Pokémon Oceania International Championships! Antwerp’s most impressive set in the international tournament was overcoming Australia’s number one player, Komachi.
    Where can you catch Antwerp next? He has his fingers crossed for another Oceania Internationals! Other than that, he will attend as many locals as he can between Nekyucards and Ranbats!

    Fun Facts: 
    Antwerp has played both chess and soccer for 10 years All four of his grandparents were born in Italy, and his whole family embraces Italian culture. Antwerp competed in table tennis, badminton, debating, and math competitions in school. Next year, Antwerp will be taking two maths, two sciences, English, and software development. Will be competing in the Secondary School state champs as part of his school team. You can follow Antwerp on Twitter here!  
    Special thanks to Jetsplit for editing this post!

    Welcome once again to our Player Profile series, where we follow up on some of Pokkén's most talented gamers! This week, I had the chance to speak with Darkrai enthusiast Zhane "Kamon" Cox about things such as fighter choice, match techniques, playstyle, and various inspirations! Read more about community answered questions as well in the following interview below!
    TytoVortex: Hey there, Kamon! Welcome to our second Player Interview! It's a pleasure to have you. How have you been?
    Kamon: I've been good! Thanks for having me!

    TytoVortex: Not a problem at all! So Kamon, it seems that our community has entered its golden age, with lots of software support and tons of awesome majors going on! That being said, what are your plans for the near future? What goals do you wish to accomplish for this upcoming season?
    Kamon: The main goal I have for myself is to become better than I was yesterday and be the number one Darkrai player in the world with better results!

    TytoVortex: You're definitely well on your way to accomplishing those goals! The results you've made at your prior tournaments this year with Darkrai have been impressive, with a solid 7th place at Summer Jam and a startling 5th at Battle For Castelia! While on this topic, we've also got a question coming in from a fellow Darkrai player, Jin! He asks, "what do you think is better about your Darkrai than the others?"
    Kamon: Jin trying to get intel I see! *laughs*
    Just kidding, nah but I think because I play Darkrai and ONLY Darkrai on a competitive level, I do feel like I have one of the better decision making processes and a good read on certain situations that involve Darkrai doing certain things. So far I feel I'm the only Darkrai player to use his low jY in field to catch someone walking, or to trap them. I feel like it's a VERY good tool to control the battlefield and kind of tell your opponent, "no! You HAVE to stay where I tell you to stay."
    To add onto that I feel like I have some crazy set ups with Darkrai, like I kind of think ahead, if that makes sense? I'll put you into a situation on purpose so you can either try and punish me or get away and you'll get punished most of the time for doing either or.

    TytoVortex: Ahh, so very set-up oriented! That's awesome. A match can always feel really controlled when you have your opponent in a certain situation that you had planned out beforehand. That's definitely a really nice quality of Darkrai that tends to draw players in!
    Ona similar note, we've got a question coming in from our last successful Player Interview, ThankSwalot! He wants to know, "what's the trickiest thing that you always have to keep in mind when playing Darkrai? For example, is it keeping track of Phase Shift Points, setting up traps in the right places, managing your orbs whenever you make a rift, etc?"

    Kamon: Oh, good question. Managing orbs is easy because you can get them so fast with every trap you set up and Darkrai is a master of stalling. With your combos you can cut them short to get a hard knockdown and stay in Bad Dreams Rising, so I'd say the trickiest thing about him is literally predicting what your opponent will do next. To go into more detail with that, Darkrai doesn't play like the rest of the cast. He has his good moments but he has SO many bad ones and it's up to YOU as a player to control what he does, where he stands, what trap to set up next, etc. He plays completely different from the ENTIRE cast and that makes him unique but at the same time it's a big flaw. In Field Phase, if Garchomp does an unsafe jX and you block it the appropriate punish is normally to grab him BUT with darkrai you do NOT want to do that. Yeah sure you'll grab him and get some damage in BUT you'll also shift into Duel Phase without Bad Dreams Rising, and you never want to be there.
    So I guess to answer the question I'd say the trickiest thing about him is your decision making because he relies so much on you to make a good one!

    TytoVortex: Oh, absolutely! Darkrai definitely earns his "Technique" title within the game! It takes a dedicated player to really master all his tools, which I think can push your knowledge of other fighters as well. Another user (and one of Pokkén Arena's writers), SkySmaug384, asks, "What was your reasoning behind picking Darkrai and what is your favorite thing to do with him (favorite combo, mindgame, etc.)?"

    Kamon: My reason for playing him is I always thought he was a cool Pokémon, and when I saw he was in DX and I saw what he could do I kind of thought "wow, how on earth could someone NOT get confused from his moves!? They're so wacky looking and I don't know how to put them into good use!" So I was more fascinated by him and I didn't expect to be one of the top Darkrai players in the world but the more I played him the more I understood he has SO much freedom to him and he literally lets you play the way YOU want to play him. My FAVORITE thing about him - well, two favorite things about him - is:
    1. When literally anything hits someone and they go "YO THAT HIT ME!?" *laughs*
    2. Nah but seriously he is one of the BEST knowledge check characters in this game and even if he has a losing MU he can STILL win, depends on how creative you can get! Like with Braixen, yes that matchup is TERRIBLE, but you have tools to combat her tools and thats BIG in that matchup. He has his side dash, Nasty Plot, rift, Dream Eater and more! My favorite move is Dream Eater if you haven't heard the "what do you wanna be when you grow up!?" meme that I made then oh boy! *laughs*
    My FAVORITE mindgame is when they think I'm going to Dream Eater them. If I put the fear of taking a base 180 damage SLOW grab into you then that means you don't remember what you want to be when you grow up.

    TytoVortex: Oh goodness, I'd be lying if I said that wasn't a hilarious take on playing Darkrai! You seem to really know your ins and outs of the character and I hope this interview can help other players utilize him in a more calculated manor! It's always fun to "meme" your experiences, so to speak. I know I do that plenty with Shadow Mewtwo as well! It makes the game more exciting!
    We've got another question here from a user named xzx, and they want to know, "what is your opinion about Synergy Mode/Synergy Burst from a competitive standpoint?"

    Kamon: All I gotta say is his Burst Attack (IN BAD DREAMS RISING) is frame 1 invincible so it's like having an active Magikarp on board because your opponent can't just push buttons or pressure you, so if they fear the Burst Attack you can grab them or just chip them to zero because if they try to combat the chip just Burst on them! *laughs*
    P.S. His Burst Attack does more in Bad Dreams Rising, I think it does about 220 damage?

    TytoVortex: Oh, so in Bad Dreams Rising, it's a bit more threatening too! Plus all of Darkrai's neat tools to cross up opponents and punishing certain options. It's always a lot of fun to watch! Another question coming in from someone named Zang, and they were wondering; "If you could pick any one extra Pokémon to put in Pokkén which would you pick? Why? How would it play?"

    Kamon: Yooo Zang! You already know I'm trying to rock out with Hydreigon! Draco Meteor, Outrage, Hyper Voice, Tri Attack, Dragonbreath, Roar, Dragon Pulse, Scary Face, Dragon Rush, Earth Power. He can get all those moves and more like you can make him a zoner-ish character like Darkrai but with just stronger moves and a bit more tanky.
    Plus we need more dragons!

    TytoVortex: Oh, I fully agree! Hydreigon would be an awesome addition to Pokkén, and that sort of playstyle seems to fit it just about perfectly!
    Alright, we've got one more coming in, although it's not so much a question, rather a playful poke! I think this player is well known for his sarcasm!
    slippingbug says; "You know Nasty Plot's busted, bro".

    Kamon: Stop mashing 5Y, bro!
    TytoVortex: I feel this is an appropriate time to say... big oof. I'm sure we're all anticipating the epic showdown between Nasty Plot and 5Y in the near future!
    Alright Kamon, that's all the questions we have for today! You've been a wonderful player to interview, and your answers were informational and humorous! Is there anything else you'd like to add before we call it a day?

    Kamon: Just follow my Twitch! Nah but real talk I'd like to thank a few players!

    PuppyHavoc! The dude who literally helped me with my playstyle and made me into the player I am today without his help I'd still be a scrub!

    Oreo! He kicked my butt for months on end and forced me to get better and learn a brand new playstyle that I use now.

    slippingbug because he gave me a shot and started telling people how good I am when I was an up-and-coming player with no name!

    My son Maverick for always beating me with jank and the better character but also always respecting me as a player and friend, knowing I was always trying to get better with Darkrai and he sees the improvement!

    Rokso for legit always believing in me and understanding the way I think with Darkrai and supporting me without question!

    Euclase for always supporting me at majors and events and for realizing I'm like the only Darkrai who can beat him so he ALWAYS shows me the utmost respect when we play and talk!

    My Discord Pokkén homies! I literally wouldn't be here if it wasn't for those guys in there so thanks!

    All my Twitch followers, mods and subscribers! And all the people who lurk, you guys really helped me with the streaming thing that I love! And if it wasn't for most of you then I probably wouldn't be able to eat and go to events!

    And shoutout to all the people who generally enjoy talking to me or watching me play it means a lot that a scrub like me can make you guys enjoy my presence in this community!

    TytoVortex: Those are lovely shoutouts, and I'm sure everyone is going to appreciate the recognition! Keep striving to grow and improve, your Darkrai is getting up there and people are taking notice! Thank you so much for participating in our second Player Interview, it's always a pleasure to speak with you! Have an excellent night, Kamon! Keep making those results, we're all anticipating big things from you and your Darkrai in the future!

    Kamon: Sure thing, thanks for having me!

    TytoVortex: No problem, it was my pleasure!

    We also had a couple of questions come in following the official interview that we decided to squeeze in as well! 

    TytoVortex: A fellow Darkrai player, Shadowcat asks, "what's your opinion on Darkrai's current state in the meta?"

    Kamon: I feel like Darkrai is an okay character but he needs help and lots of it. He isn't like a bad character by any means but not the greatest at the same time. I just feel like if they stopped nerfing him every single patch most of us could grow at a faster rate with him because I know there are tons of people who want to learn Darkrai but they get upset when they lose with him because he is different from the rest of the cast and they always nerf him in some way, shape or form. So for now I think he is mid tier because his losing matchups really weight him down but that's because of how he plays as a whole. Like, Decidueye and Braxien just have BETTER tools against him so it makes it hard to even play with him at a skilled level against those characters and others! So yeah, mid tier.

    TytoVortex: Another Pokkén enthusiast, Euclase, wants to know, "you keep saying that Darkrai sucks, in your opinion what changes does the character need?"

    Kamon: I always say he sucks because he doesn't get rewarded enough for certain things... like take Aegislash for example. If you punish someone with a 4Y combo you get a ton of damage and shift them into Field Phase and you get to reset yourself and you get all of that just from one move. If I do Nasty Plot I only get Bad Dreams Rising and that's it. I dont get tons of damage or anything so most of the cast is rewarded more than Darkrai in that sense. I think he gets nerfed because people see me or Jin doing stuff they dont understand and go, "oh wow that's broken and unfair!" but in reality we have to work for SO MUCH just to get so little in return. Bad Dreams Rising is nice and that's how we win but even so it's sometimes not enough because one mistake and we're out of it yet again. What they should give him is less endlag on some things and buff up some moves, like, okay his counter attack is trash so you should never use it and you get rewarded for Nasty Plot but it's frame five and that's super slow, it only becomes good in Bad Dreams Rising when it's frame one and plus ten on block. So they should buff normal Nasty Plot like make it frame three if anything and give him less endlag on most of his moves. I'm not saying make him broken but like make him more fair so I dont have to work 10 times harder than the rest of the cast.

    TytoVortex: Thank you, Kamon! Your opinions on the current meta are well appreciated! See you all next time!

    Congratulations to all of this week's competitors!

    The recently announced Version 1.3.3 update is now available for players worldwide to download and try out!
    In case you missed it, Version 1.3.3 was announced last week. The patch notes promised changes for various Battle and Support Pokémon. Nothing major, but still exciting!
    These patch notes can be found below the break. If you plan on labbing the new update and sharing your findings on Twitter, remember to use the character hashtags, and also remember to post your findings on the Pokkén Arena forums!

    The results are now available for the FSBC Cup featuring Gardevoir. This event utilized the Team Battle format and took place from September 21 to September 23. There was a bit lower participation for this official Group Match compared to previous ones due to Nintendo Switch Online launching this same weekend. Expect participation to pick up again for the next FSBC Cup!
    Those 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 Fairy Tempest Cup below. A big thank you goes out to Tuxwuff for sending in the results for Europe! Keep in mind we do not have easy access to the Japan rankings, so they are absent from the results below. If you participate in the Japanese Group Matches and wish to have your region's rankings shared here, please let us know!
