Another game on the Nintendo Switch is receiving an update today. Hitting servers before ARMS’ update later, Pokkén Tournament DX is jumping from Version 1.0.1 to 1.1.0.

The biggest takeaways from this update is that Team Battles are now available online and in Event Mode, there’s been some tweaking of various Pokémon and attacks, and you can now record your moves in Free Training à la Practice Mode so that you can be the very best, like no one ever was.

  • A recording feature has been added to Free Training in Practice Mode.
  • Players can get special titles based on their ranking in Official Group Matches.
    • Official Group Matches are groups held officially for Pokkén Tournament DX. Rewards are only available for certain Official Group Matches.
  • It is now possible to change how battle records are displayed.
  • Battle records will be displayed when players enter a group.
  • Team Battles are now available in Event Mode.
