Patch Notes for Version 1.3.3 Update to #PokkenTournamentDX, arriving September 26th

Pokemon Trainers, get your Switches ready for an update.

According to the Japanese website for Pokken Tournament DX, the hybrid 3D/2D Pokemon game will receive an update that introduces a small amount of balance adjustments to a portion of the Battle Pokemon roster. As for the Support Pokemon, only Mega Rayquaza will be tweaked slightly.

The patch notes are available here in Japanese, but due to the efforts of kaloncpu57 and deyskil, two members from the Pokken Arena forums, an English version of the notes is available for you to peruse.

Given the difference in time zones, this update may roll out as early as Tuesday, September 25th, and will impact some regions earlier than others. Furthermore, any replays pertaining to the current version of Pokken Tournament DX will no longer be functional after the upcoming update.

The English notes can be found at, but for your convenience, they will be copied and pasted in this article. Enjoy.
