I think the combo damage reduction can also be toned down a bit. Longer strings shouldn't do less damage than two individual moves that are a part of said string. That's just stupid.
Is that why when sometimes I do like a combo into a super and the burst attack does like, barely any damage? That's really silly.

Anyway, the thing I would to see get added is those force shield things? Not sure what it's actually called but in some fighting games, they have this thing where if you are backed into the end of a screen or corner, you can basically do this "explosion" around your character to push the opponent away so you can move or whatever. I feel in Pokken, it extremely easy for opponents to knock you into a corner and simply dominate and take off like, half of your health and you can't do anything about it. If they added that feature in, I believe it would make battles less one sided.

Yep, that's why. I think it makes sense for burst attacks since it makes landing raw burst attacks, a much more hard option, more rewarding. Given how much damage hits do overall, comboing into burst attack would be too powerful.


is a good example of what I meant about scaling being too much overall.

Say boys, which point allocation increases the HP of a Poké fighter?

My Shadow Mewtwo is now level 71 but his HP is still only 480.

Pokkén is such a fun game! :grin:
I still don't know who I'm gonna main unfortunately. I've played Pikachu the most, so maybe him, I guess, but I'm still trying all the characters out.
Also, once I have enough money, I'm probably gonna just buy the Hori Pad online from Gamestop. Now if only there were nearby tournaments here...

The Pokkén Pro Pad is incredibly hard to find. I didn't think it would be.
Finally got mine shipped in today. Takes some getting used to if you've used nothing but the Gamepad/Wii U Pro Controller.

Cause the Pokken controller is wired.
^ Thus optimal for offline tournaments.

Also feels really nice, considering it's a replica of the arcade controller that the game was designed with in mind.

Since I have no intentions of ever entering a tournament, I'm going to continuing using the Wii U Pro controller when I play Pokken Tournament. The game controls perfectly with it which is nice because I can also use the Pro with Mario Kart 8.

Speaking of tournaments; I've seen comments here and there that Mewtwo and Shadow Mewtwo are being banned from tournaments in some places. I haven't followed the Pokken competitive scene too closely, is there any credibility to this?

Shadow mewtwo prob cuz of the blockstring infinite in field and mewtwo is a huge question mark to me.

Emotwo's blockstring infinite is getting him banned in certain places. I'm not convinced it's a problem because the game gives you an alternative method of blocking via CADC, so you can almost play the game as normal vs him. Almost.

Never heard of anyone banning regular Mewtwo, though. I've heard he's probably top tier, and better than no-infinite Emotwo, but I haven't seen a good one in action, nor do I understand his tools well enough to comment on that.

I certainly wouldn't complain about a Mewtwo ban. That thing makes me salty as hell...
Nah, but really, nothing about Mewtwo is inherently broken, so a ban on him is strange. Edgy Mewtwo is understandable.

Hoping to download the demo today...I really wanna like this game and join the community.

Maybe Mewtwo's banned because they wanna get more setups and not everybody has beaten story mode at this early point in the game?

Well, Tournaments would most likely be using LAN play, which actually unlocks everything temporarily (until you leave the LAN mode)

Don't forget that Pokken Tournament is also compatible with the original Wii's Pro controller.



Sometimes you can find these at lower prices than the Wii U Pro controller but you'll need to have a wii-mote to make it work.

It could still be the reasoning "not everybody has him unlocked yet, thus have no experience with/against him." Though still seems iffy at best.

As for the Miracle Eye infinite, supposedly there's maintenance coming up specifically for Pokkén, so we may be getting it patched out soon.

Actually that was last night and nothing came of it.

Just made this yesterday, but I made a brief review summing up the game if you're still on the fence

Overall a very good review. I only take issue with your claim that Pokken Tournament is the best looking game on the Wii U. It appears that some concessions were made to resolution to keep the game running at 60 fps. For that reason some people say that PT looks a little blurry at times. Nonetheless, Pokken is still a brilliant game and well worth purchasing if you enjoy fighting games on even a casual level. Thanks for your review video, HermitHelmet!

Iron League is by far my favourite league of all, it is the hardest but it also makes you think strategically and in ways how to possibly win without losing a single match. Awesome.

Anyhow, it'd be nice to see a DLC pack sometime in a near future to fill those four spots on the roster. :)

The Pokkén Pro Pad is incredibly hard to find. I didn't think it would be.
Seems that way but I've already gotten my ideal controller for Pokkén. :)

But now I'm hearing there'll be another update in the next couple weeks that will take the infinite out...as well as making Reshiram a little less ridiculous and fixing a few bugs.

Yeah, hopefully they get the thing where Sceptile can clip under the ground too.

Wonder if there'll be any major character balance changes? People seem to have lost hope with Blaziken real quick, lol.
