Patch 1.3 has officially been announced for Pokkén Tournament and will go into effect on June 15. It will be the first patch made available for the game since update 1.2 went live in April and it will require that players have 521 MB of storage available in order to download it.

According to Serebii this update will affect the entire roster of playable Pokémon and even some support Pokémon, who have received some buffs and nerfs.

Out of all the fighters Mewtwo and Shadow Mewtwo received the biggest nerfs and will definitely lose some of the power that made them so strong. Other fighters such as Gengar and Blaziken received minor buffs, while other Pokémon like Braixen and Lucario got some slight nerfs.

All of the patch notes have been made available via the Japanese Pokkén Tournament website where you can get a more indepth look at all the other new changes coming to the game next week.
