I could be this way so that there is no upperhand to anybody when playing online. So that a player in handheld mode is at no advantage or disadvantage to a player in TV mode.

Thinking of getting this for my daughter who like Poke'mon.

There a DEMO on the eShop. Just download it a let her try it.

I did that with the Wii U versión for my 4 year old and we haven´t looked back ever since.

I really like this game because well, I liked the Wii U version but bloody hell, was it too much to ask for 1080p and some nicer textures? The shadows the pokemon cast on themselves are really bad too, they break up into black lines which looks awful on their faces. It's also just stereo, all my other speakers are silent.

Played my first online game. Perfected the guy in the first round, then somehow lost the next two. It was my Scizor vs his Pikachu, and I felt like I was barely hit, he was just spamming this low thunder attack. I have no idea how I lost, honestly.

Scizor is great, though. Great addition. I'm not a fan of Decidueye, though. He has some cool moves but he just looks stiff and his feathers don't show up as anything more than plastic and there's no 'cloak' effect to his wings so he just doesn't look right, imo.

Love the daily challenge, though. Great way to have people try out all the different characters. The challenge board for each league rank has a similar effect on trying support pokemon which is good too.

Enjoying it a lot so far.

Been playing as Pikachu since I always found him fun to fool around with. Once I break into my Pokken skills, I'm gonna go back to Sceptile and try either Decidueye or Empoleon as a second main.

Thinking about creating a GAF room for later, in celebration of the launch. Any of y'all interested?

I don't think such a person exists outside of the development team yet.

I keep seeing you online, we've got to play and practice with one another a bit.

I've been training with Empoleon so I'm still trying to get the hang of his movement.

Edit: How do we play our friends online?

Oh I see. I'm online with the code neogaf if anyone wants to play. I'm still trying to figure things out.

Edit again: Thanks who ever that was. Too bad for the lag though. Gotta pick up my kid from school.

I really don't care about being competitive at this at all, the existence of a game where you actually just fight with the Pokemon is a thing my siblings and I have wanted for years and should be pretty easy to break out with friends

I really love how true to life the Pokemon are in this game. My dream for the main series, is for it to play as usual, but with animation and fluid attacks like how we see here.

The 3vs3 really makes me yearn for a Pokken sequel that expands on it, too. Very, very dope. Shame it's local only, but I can see a patch in the future.

Liking Decidueye. Might make it a secondary main. Empoleon and maybe even Scizor are nice too. Not feeling Darkrai immediately though, and I don't think Croagunk is for me. Chandelure is still carrying me through online of course.

yeah it does but the game has everything unlocked from the start so that card doesn't have much of a point anymore

no but they did change it to just giving you the full list of supports instead of 3 now

Considering Decidueye is new to this release, everyone is probably still learning him.

You can scan 5 amiibos a day for a random customisation piece, title or gold amount, same as the Wii U version.

Graphically this game may not have changed much, but damn were these QoL changes sorely needed. Replay system and lobby system are a big addition. Plus all the new characters are fun to play and have crazy mechanics. They all feel distinct.

A royale shame Wii U version never got this stuff, but I'll let it slide.

Hmm, I tried it out and it's not a traditional lobby. You can create groups that people can sign up for and you can choose to search for matches from people just in that group.

RIP, but it should work okay for communities that want their own private groups.

Scizor was one of my most wanted characters for the original Pokken, and I've pleased with how he turned out. Although I wish he looked a bit more metallic. I don't really like his voice, but I'm mostly just used to Melee's "SCIZZZOOOORR" in a low voice or just generic bug noises I thought they would go with.

Also I'm not really sure what I expected for Decidueye's run animation. I mean, it's how a bird runs more or less, I can't help but think it looks a bit silly lol

Yea, I get it, I unlocked a jacket in every color. Okay that's a nice brown. Okay now blue. Yep, that's certainly yellow. On and on.

Also there's no Shadow Mewtwo shirt... only character without a shirt?

So DX is a bigger improvement than I expected, obvious additions to Pokemon and modes aside. Plus the challenges help the league mode feel like less of a slog, if only because you're focusing on other objectives.

Also Popplio is probably the best support ever which is great because Popplio is the best and the best deserve Popplio.

Agreed. What the hell were they thinking adding in a brand new mode and making it single / local only???

I'd really love it if Pokken 2 was just built around the 3v3 team battle mode. Like a Pokemon King Of Fighters.

Yea, I think Pokken 2 should be build around 3v3. It's really fun and works really great due to being more like a Pokemon battle.

Decided to pick up Decidueye, such an amazingly fun character. And I already found two or three combos that I can use that do insane damage. Going online now and have won my first two matches, still need to learn more though.

I've been playing the League mode and I cleared Green League and the two challenge panels tonight, it was a LONG game session. I think I've found my Switch game to tide me over till Odyssey.

Maining Scizor btw. Wondering if there's a level cap but I'm at least at 20+

Pikachu Libre was my main on Wii U and I think it might stay that way, but Scizor is a lot of fun

Also I love how weird Croagunk is even though I don't think I'd ever be able to play him well.
