  1. Ladies and gentlemen it’s time for an announcement that I am sure everyone is looking forward to. Once again the kind folks over at Final Round have confirmed that Pokkén Tournament DX will be one of the main competitive titles at Final Round 2019. Final Round 2019 will be held at the Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel in Hapeville, Georgia on March 15th-17th 2019. Early bird registration will be available for $45 until October 19th 2018. After that date the price will increase to $60 until December 31st, and after that price will increase once more to $70 until March 3rd. Please note that there will be no on-site registration, so please pre-register while you can if you wish to compete. If you wish to just spectate the price is $40 for the entire weekend and you may pay on-site. Also, Final Round has a clear bag policy. This means that in order to be permitted into the Tournament area you must have a clear bag that shows all content in the bag. The first 75 people to register will receive a complimentary bag. After that you may purchase bags for $10 until Early Bird registration ends, then the price will be increased to $20. Final Round was also able to get reduced hotel room rates at the event, with 2 Double Queen beds for $115 per night. Information on how to get the event rate will be listed in the smash.gg link below. TypoHouse will be there to provide streaming once again for everyone who can not make it. Let’s make this year a year to remember! https://smash.gg/tournament/final-round-2019-1
  2. One week until Blastoise is released, and recently information on not just Blastoise, but also Mew and Celebi was released on the official Japanese Pokkén website! First, let's start with the new Battle Pokémon Blastoise. Blastoise, a Battle Pokémon with excellent long range offence and top class physical strength for close quarters. From the information given, it seems that Blastoise could have varying stances in both Field and Duel Phase. In Duel Phase, he can go into his shell from which he can perform different attacks based on which button the player presses. In Field, he can choose to pressure opponents long range with various cannon shots. Blastoise’s Burst Attack is “Gun Destruction”, in which Blastoise mega-evolves to unleash a powerful close range attack that ends in a spectacular blast from his rocket cannon on his back! Onto the new Support Pokémon, Mew comes packing the ability “Metronome”. While increasing the Synergy gauge, Mew also gives a random buff alongside a critical hit buff allowing for it to be great for putting on pressure. Celebi adds an all-new feature to the game! With the ability “Time Travel” you can now switch Phases at any given moment! This exciting ability is surely one of a kind and we can’t wait to see how it’s implemented into everyone’s battle plan. Alongside the new Pokémon, more customization options will be available! As shown below, new shirts, hairstyles, glasses, scarves and an entire new Rock Style outfit is unlocked to customize your avatar to your heart’s content. Speaking of outfits, Nia gets two new ones! This is all of the information we have as of now for Wave 2 of DLC Battle Pack 1, but if we missed anything we’ll be sure to update this post with the latest news. Have fun everyone and see you all online on the 23rd! Official Pokémon News Link: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/pokkenDX/news/180316_01.html

    That's really up to you, many people use many different things that fit their play-style. So just use what you feel comfortable with! The Skill points you earn in the Single Player, Online Matches and in the Daily Challenge, all take effect in online matches. You can reset these points in My Town. Some people do, some people don't its up to you. However, if you plan to compete in LAN tournaments Skill Points are turned off, so I recommend turning them off for online play to get a true sense of your Pokemon.

    Synergy Burst Enhanced is a buff to your Burst Form. You will do more damage and receive less damage while in Burst on-top of the buffs Burst mode naturally gives. The exact percentages I'm not sure on, I think it's an extra 10% to both attack and defense but I could be wrong. I'm sure someone will correct me on the percentages.

    How did you end up with your Gamertag?

    Well, when I was a young lad of 3-4 years of age I was in our garden one day helping bring in peas and tomatoes and such. As we were leaving a grasshopper jumped on my head. Took him inside and made friends. Ever since I've had a fascination with bugs and the nickname my mother gave me "Bughead" just kinda stuck within the family. Fast forward to now and Bughead is what I use for all my online accounts.
  10. Well I'm half a good and half a FG. The perfect combination.
  11. Another member of the NC group here. These guys are some of the greatest people I've met. They've helped me learn to be a better player and to be comfortable in a competitive yet friendly environment. While everyone here gets salty from time to time (Soul I'm looking at you), we all have a great time no matter who gets bodied. Hopefully I can travel with these awesome people to bigger tournaments outside the state, once I get better that is.

    How would you describe your play style?

    Rushdown, rushdown, RUSHDOWN. Listen, I'm going in your face and I'm not leaving until I see the Victory Screen. I may throw out unsafe stuff all the time but it all just to get in your mind. Now with combos though I just stick to like 3 that actually work well, and anything else is just getting damage and applying pressure. Now if its a match that is going sour, I'll back off and try to understand their play style. Then get in, do damage, and win. At least this is my mindset, it doesn't actually apply very well. But point still stands I like rushdown and applying pressure from up close.
