  1. When Pokkén Tournament released for the Wii U back in March of 2016, a lot of the earliest competitive players came from the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U scene. Both games being on the Wii U, coupled with the fact that many Nintendo fans are also Pokémon fans, lead to the game immediately catching the eyes of many Smash players. While many of these players are still playing Pokkén to this day, there are also those who ridiculed the game for some arguably unfair reasons. An example of this is the argument that Pokkén is just a glorified game of "Rock-Paper-Scissors" - in reality, Pokkén is a much deeper experience and virtually all fighting games have a "Rock-Paper-Scissors" dynamic if you boil them down to their basics. A Smash player ridiculing Pokkén in this way isn't a bad person by any means, they're just used to the unique nature of Smash - a game that doesn't follow a lot of the trends that traditional fighting games follow. Pokkén and Smash are two very different experiences, and naturally there are some people who like that, and some who don't. ESAM, the 18th ranked player in the world in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U according to the PGR, is an example of a player who thoroughly enjoys Pokkén and the unique experience it provides. ESAM has been playing Pokkén since the title released, and now with the Deluxe port releasing for the Switch, he's decided to share his thoughts on the game and why he believes it deserves a second chance in the spotlight. Did you enjoy ESAM's video? Did you come from the Smash Bros. scene as well? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to give ESAM a follow!

  7. In case you missed the recent news regarding Pokkén's frame data, it was discovered last week that the current frame data spreadsheet may actually be incorrect, and that every move in Pokkén may actually have 2 more frames before impact than the spreadsheet suggests. Since Milln announced the possible error, there has been a lot of discussion and media being shared on social media regarding the issue. Multiple players have taken the time to share their own findings, posting videos of themselves going frame-by-frame in their preferred video editing software. Even the original author of the frame data spreadsheet - The Apple BOOM - gave his input, explaining how and why he came up with the frame data that he did. You can find some of the tweets regarding this discussion below. We will be sure to post a final update when the frame data discussion has reached its conclusion. After taking a look at the media and discussion yourself, what is your opinion on Pokkén's frame data discrepancies? Leave a comment below letting us know what you think.
  8. The next official Group Match has been announced. The event will take place from December 8 to December 11. This Group Match will return to the Basic 1 on 1 format, mirroring the first official Group Match. Like with the last two FSBC Cups, there will be a special title given to all participants. Remember, to receive your special title, you must play at least one match to completion. The "League Master" titles will once again be awarded to the top 100 competitors. You can find the full details for the FSBC Iron Meteor Dive Cup below. Dates Start: 12/8/17 3AM PT End: 12/11/17 7PM PT Note: Battles will only be ranked between 3AM and 7PM PT each day. Format VS Mode: Basic Battle Skill Level: Off Rematch: No Battle Stage: Fixed Battle Arena Participation Prize Note: To earn the Participation Prize, players must play one match to completion during the ranking times listed above. Ranking Prizes Places 1 - 10: Places 11 - 30: Places 31 - 60: Places 61 - 100: You can read the official announcement in the News app on your Nintendo Switch.
  9. For quite some time now, Pokkén players have been able to make presentable, organized tier lists through the use of a script made by kaloncpu57. In order to make a tier list, players would need to install the Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey browser extension, add kaloncpu57's script to the extension, then navigate to the Smash Apps Tier List Maker and change the game to Pokkén Tournament. While it was great that players could easily make tier lists, some people didn't like having to install an extension they were unfamiliar with in order to use the tier list maker. This is no longer an issue, as kaloncpu57 has released his own browser extension, eliminating the need for Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey! Now, once you install kaloncpu57's browser extension, Pokkén Tournament will always be a game option when you navigate to the Tier List Maker app. You can find all of the necessary links below for making your own Pokkén Tournament tier list. Chrome Extension Firefox Extension Opera Extension Smash Apps Tier List Maker For more updates regarding this extension, or to thank kaloncpu57 for creating it, you can find his Twitter here.
  10. The "Big Book of Pokkén Tournament Frame Data" has been around since the game released for Wii U in March of 2016. The spreadsheet details every single move for every single character in Pokkén, giving players a way to quickly find out what moves can punish a blocked attack, what moves are safe when blocked, and more. Because of this, the document has been extremely important when it comes to Pokkén's competitive growth. Recent findings by Milln - a long-time member of the FGC and a leader in the Pokkén community - show that there are fundamental errors to this frame data, however. As Milln points out in the "Proof of Concept" video below, all of Pokkén's frame data appears to be incorrect by 2 frames. Milln's video suggests that all attacks in Pokkén Tournament actually make impact 2 frames later than the spreadsheet suggests. In the video, he shows that 9-frame attacks - Pokkén's fastest grounded attacks - are actually 11 frames. This extends to all attacks, meaning every move in the spreadsheet is likely listed as 2 frames less than it should be. Milln has begun reviewing all of Pokkén's frame data, planning to have completed review by January 1, 2018. While this is very surprising news for competitive players, it is in no way a cause for anger or panic. As these findings affect all of Pokkén's frame data, the relationships between moves will not change. 11-frame moves are still the fastest grounded attacks in Pokkén - just as they were when we considered them 9-frames - and your options for punishing a blocked attack are still the same. The reason this is important is not so much the effect it will have on how we play the game, but rather the effect on how we discuss the game. A lot of old frame data discussion is now incorrect as a result of Milln's discovery, but saying you can punish a blocked Psystrike with Lucario's 2Y is still correct as the relative frame data between the two moves is still the same. This discovery is important for labbing and discussion going forward as the community will have to learn to use the new, more accurate frame data in the future. We will bring you more on this discovery as it comes. You can follow Milln on his Twitter to learn more about his findings, and you can find the old frame data here.
  11. Thank you for your feedback! We intend to start some more weekly summary-style posts, and we're actively discussing ways to better distribute information to readers. We're glad to hear you liked this post!
  12. The second official Pokkén Tournament DX Group Match has concluded. The Shining Feather Cup utilized the Team Battle format, meaning players were able to compete in 3-on-3 battles against hundreds of opponents. Players 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 results for the top 100 of the FSBC Shining Feather Cup below. Keep in mind these results are for North America specifically, as we do not have easy access to the Europe and Japan rankings. If you participated in either of these Group Matches and wish to have your region's rankings shared here, please email jetsplitbusiness@gmail.com. We will be posting details for the third official Group Match - the FSBC Iron Meteor Dive Cup - when they are available, so be sure to check back often! FSBC Shining Feather Cup - Top 100 1.

  13. Zyflair and FangShaymin of 21 Hits have released a video detailing Pokkén's "Restand Glitch". The glitch allows Pikachu Libre players to set up resets, leading to high damage in the corner. The glitch was initially found (or at least, popularized) by meLo back in April of this year. The 21 Hits video is great for spreading awareness and explaining what is happening during the execution of this glitch. The channel has been doing a great job of showing off really interesting Pokkén content, so if you enjoy this video, be sure to Subscribe! You can follow Zyflair and FangShaymin on Twitter, and you can Subscribe to 21 Hits here.
  14. A lot of Pokkén content - including things like new tech and optimal combos - ends up on Twitter and Discord before it makes its way to places like Pokkén Arena. This is simply because it's a lot easier to open Twitter and post a video than it is to upload a video to YouTube with a proper title and description, then make a new post on Pokkén Arena with a description of what it is, then link said post to places like Twitter and Discord. While it's completely understandable, this does mean that some very helpful content has never made it to Pokkén Arena. There are many players who started with DX on the Switch, and there's some unexplored tech that may have been expanded upon much sooner if the findings were documented in a place it would last. For example, H2 just shared a safer way to avoid Garchomp's Burst Attack yesterday (great video by the way, check it out), even though we've known you could backdash Chomp's Burst since last year! New discoveries are always being made in the FGC, but it's possible this OS might've been discovered/more widely known sooner if there was a thread where players could discuss and theorycraft. So basically, this thread is for sharing tech, content, and anything else that you feel may be beneficial for people to know, but that isn't already on Pokkén Arena as far as you know. I'll edit this OP to include any content that is linked in the replies, so hopefully this thread can be helpful for new players or even for revisiting old theories/underexplored tech! _____________________ Pikachu Libre Restand Glitch meLo's video Featured on Shoryuken 21 Hits' video Braixen VS Decidueye OS Double's tweet
  15. While it's been known since last year that you could backdash the final hit of Garchomp's Burst Attack, trying to perform this has always been a bit risky as a mistimed backdash would result in getting hit. The benefits of avoiding the final hit include being able to punish Garchomp as well as not losing some of your Synergy Gauge, but the difficulty meant many players elected to just take the Guard Break. Thanks to H2's new video, this no longer has to be the case. Before H2's video, attempting to backdash Garchomp's Burst Attack had 3 possible outcomes: Successfully backdashing to avoid the final hit, Backdashing too late and having your Guard broken, or backdashing at the wrong time and taking damage. H2 explains in this video that players can - when performed correctly - eliminate the possibility of taking damage. He explains that players can perform an Option Select (multiple inputs in order to cover multiple options) that will result in either having your Guard broken or backdashing successfully. If you're looking to upgrade your Pokkén play, the video is definitely worth a watch. Check it out below, and be sure to give H2 a follow if you want to see more! To get an even better idea of what can be done thanks to this Option Select, check out these punishes that kaloncpu57 shared on Twitter: Moonblast Litten Popplio Did you enjoy this post?
