After a year of hard fought battles, the Pokémon World Championships for 2017 took place this past weekend in Anaheim, California. As with last year's championship tournament, battlers from across the globe engaged in intense competitions for Pokkén Tournament, the Pokémon TCG, and the Pokémon video games (this time via Pokémon Sun and Moon).

After a reveal during the Pokémon World Championships over the weekend, it has today been revealed that the Pokkén Tournament DX demo will be coming to Europe on the Switch's eShop this Thursday.

Any other details such as news on a release for the US have not been given at this time. However, we'd expect the demo to show up on Thursday for the US as well, if not then very soon after. The full game is released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on the 22nd of September.

After three long and gruelling days of Pokémon battling, the 2016 Pokémon World Championships wrapped up yesterday afternoon in San Francisco - or earlier this morning depending on your timezone.
While the Pokkén Tournament finals were settled on Saturday, and its victors sadly missing during the Worlds closing ceremonies, our TCG and VGC finals were held on Sunday. Trophies were presented to our TCG and VGC winners during the closing ceremonies by Game Freak's Junichi Masuda and the Pokemon Company's president/CEO, Tsunekazu Ishihara. Congratulations to all of our new champions and to the rest of the players who took part in this year's Pokémon World Championships, and an especially big congrats to our first ever Pokkén Tournament World Champions!

Today, after a brief tease about it last month, a new Pokemon has been announced as a fighter in Pokken Tournament - the first new fighter to be announced since the release of the Wii U version and the first indication of DLC content arriving for the console version as well.

That Pokemon is Darkrai, which also may confirm two other forthcoming Pokemon as last month, data mining of the most recent patch found references to Darkrai, Scizor and Empoleon in new files introduced to the game. With the confirmation of Darkrai's involvement, it makes it pretty likely that Scizor and Empoleon will be joining it in the future.


Previously, Nintendo, Namco Bandai and the Pokemon Company had all insisted there were no plans for DLC for Pokken Tournament. However, given that they said...

It's taken us a few more days than originally planned to get everything 100% working for an official launch of the site, but PokkenClub.com is now officially open for business.

On the site right now you'll find the full move sets for every fighter in the game, as well as info on all the Support Sets and basic information on the game in our PokkenDex. We'll also be covering all the latest news on the game on the site as it comes along.

In the near future we'll be updating the site with even more info in the PokkenDex, including some advanced gameplay hints and tips and recommended combos for each fighter to really help you get fully to grips with your chosen main.

In the longer term we'll be continuing to work away at the backend of the...

The schedule for this year's Pokemon National Championships - the qualifiers for the World Championships being held later this year in San Francisco - has been announced and it's finally been confirmed that the Pokken Tournament Championship Series will be joining the Video Game Championships (OR/AS) and the Pokemon TCG at Nationals across the world.

This March, Pokecharms will be expanding into brand new territory as we launch a whole new website dedicated to the upcoming release of Pokken Tournament.

PokkenClub.com will be launching the same week as Pokken Tournament and from that week on will be the premiere source for news, features and all the vital stats on the Tournament’s competing Pokemon. In the coming weeks and months we will also be launching two more brand new features on the site:

The PokkenClub Community:

At launch the site won’t be open to new user registrations, but in the weeks after launch we will be opening the site up to begin building what will hopefully be the biggest and best dedicated Pokken Tournament community on the web. As well as a more typical forum discussion area, you will be able to create your own profiles on the site, complete with your own personal space for uploading screenshots, videos and...

[This article was originally posted almost a year ago to the day and after today's announcement seems all the more relevant, so we're bringing it back for anyone who might have missed it the first time around.]

So it probably doesn't really add up that I would espouse that the upcoming, actually being made, game could possibly be...
