In the days of the Wii U, Braixen was queen of Pokkén Tournament. Though she received a number of nerfs in the transition to the Nintendo Switch version, Pokkén Tournament DX‘s Braixen didn’t walk away empty handed: Now that she has the ability to special cancel her homing attack, the sky’s the limit for guard crush and chip damage setups.
Perhaps it isn’t a surprise that the lone Pokémon with the ability to cancel into assists can make use of a new special cancel-able move. But what makes this new tool so potentially good is the versatility it adds to a character that was already very good at winning field phases in the first place. Time will tell if support-canceled-homing attacks ends up being as terrifying as they look now, but until counter strategies develop, you can count on even more meter being swung Braixen’s way thanks to this.
