By on May 16, 2018 at 10:30 am

Without any fanfare or warning, Pokkén Tournament DX players were surprised to find a software update was required for their Nintendo Switch if they wanted to play online last night. Although no notes came with this patch — which updates the game to version 1.3.1 — the hardworking fans at PokkénArena were able to find that the small update beefs up some of the latest DLC characters, and removes some glitches.

Bug Fixes


  • 2Y increased clash priority
  • 6Y causes a hard knock-down
  • 4Y increased knock-back on block and hit.


  • Braixen can now begin charging certain Support Pokémon while the Support Pokémon is still on the field.


  • Removed the unintended ability to manipulate this move to always yield the boulder or tornado variations.


  • Dash recovery shortened.


  • Parry Scaling increased from 0% to 20%.


  • Mega Rayquaza’s charge time reduced from 40 seconds to 10 seconds.
  • Celebi now launches when shifting from Field Phase to Duel Phase.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Since the original posting, more changes have been discovered and will be updated above.  As reported by Pokkén Arena, Nintendo has announced that an official patch list will be released on the 18th. One wonders if this was internally scheduled for the 18th and someone jumped the gun…]
