    Jetsplit

    It's that time once again! The official Japanese Pokkén Tournament DX website has announced a new update for Pokkén Tournament DX, which will be arriving Wednesday, July 11. This update features balance changes for all 23 fighters, some of which are quite major!

     

    Because of time zones, it's likely that some of us will be receiving this update on Tuesday, July 10. Regardless, expect new changes coming to Pokkén in the next week!

     

    Without further ado, here are the patch notes for Pokkén Tournament DX version 1.3.2. A big thank you goes out to Pentao for creating the early translations for us!

    Fixed two things.

     

    1 - I mistranslated one of the Aegislash nerfs. It should be Enhanced 4X that reduces buff time, not enhanced 4Y.

    2 - I re-read Lucario's 6Y change. The "improved interaction with highs" allows 6Y to avoid highs at certain points in the attack.

    Thanks for all you've done Pentao! I updated this post with these two changes.

    WEAVILE :Weavile:

    • 6Y: A new move can now be performed.
    • Synergy Burst: Increased duration.
    • Icicle Crash ~ Nosedive: Increased chip damage.
    • 8X: Now works as a combo starter when hitting airborne opponents.

    6Y: depends on how good it is but Weavile is already chock-full of good moves so the best thing is that it's a midscreen combo move.

    J.AR: it breaks shield in 3 hits and does 30-50 shield damage based on height this isn't okay.

    8X: not as bad since it's kind of a midlow with low damage but still.

    overall weavile was already OP in Pokkén but i hope they didn't do anything stupid to her in field and just slapped some scaling on j.Y(field)

    i hope they just made :Blaziken:'s heat wave have %40-30 less scaling instead of just %10, %70 is really dumb

    Sorry, correction to Blaziken's EX move scaling. Another mistake, I wrote Blaziken's EX Heat Wave has reduced scaling. The actual move was EX High Jump Kick. Most likely to synergize with his jY buff being special cancelable, making it so you can do jY > EX HJK > combo for beefy damage.

    I wish there was an e-mail to suggest things to Pokkén team. I mean, there are three things that i want in the game:

    - 1 new playable Pokemon

    - 2 new pairs of Support Pokemon

    - An option to choose the colour of the Pokemon, or play with regular or the Shiny colour.

    Wait, isn't the change to chandelure that

    Will-o-wisp now has decreased knockback.  I don't believe smog was changed.

    You're right, that was a translation error on my part. Thanks for pointing it out!
