Pokkén Tournament DX logo

Team Battle online mode, Free Training's recording feature and Group Matches have been added
The first major update for Pokkén Tournament DX has been released. This update has added the Team Battle mode with 3 on 3 battles to the online battle mode. This update has also added a recording feature to Practice Mode's Free Training. This recording feature allows players to control the opposing Pokémon to have the Pokémon repeat specific commands in order to record its movements so that they can be played back during training. Players can now receive special titles based on their ranking in Official Group Matches. Group Matches allow players to create or join a group with other players to have matches for a set amount of time. Official groups from Pokkén Tournament DX will be also available in the online battle mode in Group Match events.
