Pokken Tournament DX for Switch is an improved version of the Wii U game Pokken Tournament. The game in topic offers over 20 pokemon, including one that was previously unavailable, Decidueye. In addition to that, developers introduced two new game modes, Team Battle and Group Match Mode. The game now also has battle replays system – we can record our matches and publish them online. Pokken Tournament DX makes a good use of Switch’s unique functions and allows us to play in both handheld and stationary modes.
In terms of gameplay mechanics, Pokken Tournament DX for Switch is not that different from the most popular 3D fighting games. Battles between two competitors take place on closed arenas. Players choose one of the many available pokemon among which we will find pocket monsters like Lucario, Machamp, Suicune, Gardevoir, Pikachu Gengar, Wavile, Charrizard, or Blaziken. Each of them has its own unique fight style and combo attacks. Moreover, after using a specific combination of buttons we can summon another pokemon for a couple of seconds that will aid us in ckombat. Creatures like Emolga, Fennekin, Snivy, Frogadier, Eevee, Lapras, or Whimsicott can help us with their powerful one-shot attacks.
We can play against A.I. or other players through local and online multiplayer.
Pokken Tournament DX for Switch has high quality, colourful visuals. Both pokemon models and arenas were created with high attention to detail. The game has the same sound effects and soundtrack as the jRPG series’ main installments.
