Version 1.3.2 Update for #PokkenTournamentDX introduces a huge balance update
Today, the Japanese website for Pokken Tournament DX was updated to include details of a new balance patch coming to the 3D Pokemon brawler next Wednesday, July 11th.
This patch affects all playable characters in Pokken DX, meaning that match-ups are expected to change dramatically. Included among the changes are air dashes being added to existing characters, specific moves being cancelled mid-animation, and more.

Pokken DX is a port of the original Pokken Tournament, which was developed by none other than the creators of the Tekken franchise: Bandai Namco. As gamers would expect, Pokken combines gameplay elements from Tekken with brand-new mechanics inspired by Nintendo's Pokemon universe. Matches are played in intricate 3D environments where players command a Battle Pokemon and two Party Pokemon, the latter of which will come into play in-between rounds.
Pokken Tournament was initially released in Japanese arcades on July 2015 and later for the Nintendo Wii-U in March 2016. When the Nintendo Switch dropped a year later, Bandai Namco immediately thought it wise to port the game to the newest console while adding in a slew of new content including new playable characters and game modes. Dubbed Pokken Tournament DX, the updated product launched in September 2017, and two additional DLC packs called Battle Packs dropped earlier this year, adding in Blastoise and Aegislash as playable characters.
