  1. 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!

  2. As one of the world's best Pokkén Tournament players and a well-known community figure, it makes sense that Anthony "Rokso" Paratore would be a prime candidate for eSports organizations looking to get more involved in Pokkén Tournament DX. Over this past weekend, InControl Gaming announced their signing of the top level Garchomp player. The team started by teasing the signing of a Pokkén player. The 40 Like goal was quickly met, which led to the announcement. With such an impressive competitor joining their already existing line-up of Pokkén players, it looks like InControl has high expectations for competitive Pokkén. Hopefully we'll see more teams join the likes of InControl as more DX events pop up! You can congratulate Rokso on his Twitter, and you can follow InControl here.

  7. Earlier today, McDareth, Rudafuda, Burnside, and Mins hosted the second ever Ferrum Heights Pokkén Podcast on McDareth's Twitch channel. This podcast revealed the Pokkén Tournament Season 1.3 Rankings - a list of the top 50 players in Pokkén Tournament (based on the season's North American events). The rankings were determined by a group of dedicated community members tirelessly studying results and making decisions based on events, games played, and win/loss ratios, among other factors.

You can watch the full VOD announcing the placements here, and you can follow the hosts (McDareth, Mins, Rudafuda, Burnside) on Twitter.

  11. ALLISTER Working With Nintendo to Showcase DX at PAX

    I agree that we probably won't see Nintendo working this closely with anyone else, but like you said, Allister is a good figure head, so I'm happy.
  12. ALLISTER announced this morning on Twitter that he will be teaming up with Nintendo of America to showcase Pokkén Tournament DX at PAX West this weekend. ALLISTER also hinted that there will be a "surprise guest from the Pokkén community" at the event. It's awesome to see Nintendo working with ALLISTER as much as they are. Hopefully we'll see them involve more community members in the future! You can find Nintendo's official statement regarding PAX West on their website. Thanks to Burnside for the graphic!
  13. The wait for the release of Pokkén Tournament DX has been a long one, but the wait gets a little bit easier today! The Pokkén Tournament DX Demo is now available for Japanese accounts on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The demo will be available for North American accounts at 12 a.m. Eastern Time tonight. Can't wait? You can make a Japanese account and download the Japanese version right now. As mentioned in Burnside's tweet, the only Battle Pokémon you can use in the Japanese demo are Pikachu, Charizard, and Empoleon. It's safe to assume all versions of the demo will have the same content, but we'll find out tonight! Japanese Pokkén Tournament DX Demo Content Battle Pokémon: Pikachu, Charizard, Empoleon Support Pokémon: Cresselia/Reshiram, Lapras/Snivy Game Modes: Practice, Single Battle, Local Battle Battle Stages: Ferrum Stadium Play Limit: 15 battles, BUT uninstalling and reinstalling the demo resets the count back to 0 Remember, this is just to give newcomers a taste of the game to get them excited. We'll have all of the characters and modes available to us in 1 month! If you have Twitter and you want to thank Nintendo and The Pokémon Company for this demo, you can do so here. Hope you all enjoy the demo! Big thanks to Cat Fight and Burnside for information on the demo's contents, and PKSparkxx for the thumbnail image!
  14. Didn't go, and wasn't even able to watch Saturday live, but my thoughts on the stream: It looked fantastic. It really felt like Pokkén was being treated as well as VGC and TCG, and I'm sure that was largely thanks to DC's work on the stream. I would have loved to see some "Trainer Tips" like I saw on the VGC streams - waiting screens that talk about fighters' strengths and weaknesses, functions of Support Mons and how players often seem to use them, etc. Things like this... But the Pokkén waiting screens could be something like "Disruptive Supports", going over why some people use Umbreon vs. Fennekin. I did love the player cards for each Top 16 member before matches. Those looked awesome and are the kind of thing I want more of in the official TPCi streams. I found it a little awkward sometimes with only having one console's audio. There were a couple moments where I'd be looking at Mewtwo after he wins a round, but I'd hear Braixen's voice complaining about losing, for example. I can't really think of an issue off the top of my head - what would be the problem with using the audio from both consoles? Overall, the stream was fantastic for me. The casters were great and the stream looked and ran great.
