Fighting games are notoriously difficult to balance, as the extraordinarily technical nature of the gameplay can lead to certain methods simply being more effective than others. Playtesting helps greatly in this regard, but nothing can quite replicate the phenomenon of the full public having access, and cracks in the gameplay inevitably show up. This has now happened for Pokkén Tournament, and a new combo has been discovered that's impossible to beat.
The combo is pulled off by Shadow Mewtwo, and it involves a simple, two-move setup. Basically, if the opponent tries to block the first attack, they can be trapped in the block state indefinitely and have their health chipped down. When the match ends, Shadow Mewtwo wins by default. Check out this video which explains it and shows how it's done, though do be warned, there is some strong language:
What do you think? Have you come across this yet? Do you think it'll be patched? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
(fires up Shadow Mewtwo...)
Well hopefully this gets patched soon.
Also you might want to put a language warning for the video. He swears towards the end of it.
@PLATINUM7 Good call, I forgot about that!
I´m sure they'll patch it soon.
Seems pretty easy to patch.
This is such a great title anyone slightly into fighting games needs to try it ., I really really hope they add some more characters and stages by way of DLC in the future hands down my favorite title out currently awesome awesome game.
I play this game for the fun off pulling off well timed sick looking combos. People who just play to win are sad little people who need more ambition in life. Just my opinion.
Totally agree. By the way. I keep getting trounced by my 10yr olds mad picachu skills.😢
Definitely picking up the game now!
Why couldn't it have been the character that I use (blaziken)? 😂
No but seriously this needs patching.
I don't understand why Mewtwo and Shadow Mewtwo are allowed online in the first place. It puts those players at a clear advantage over everyone else.
Well, I'll keep this in mind if I have trouble beating the Chroma League and final boss once I get that far. If they patch it out before then, I'll just avoid updating and sacrifice online play until then. (Yes, the final boss is Shadow Mewtwo himself, but like the video said I can finish it off with an offensive Support Pokémon once we're both down to 1 HP.)
No blocking against Shadow Mewtwo, got it.
@BulbasaurusRex You'll need an offensive support to set up, then combo off of then finish him off yourself since you can't die to chip damage or supports in Pokken
Hopefully no one is spamming this.
eugh, The seemingly infinite amount of players who just spam Braixen's Fire Blast is bad enough. Now I'm gonna have to deal with this, too? I might just stay off the game for a while.
Has to be patched... It's game breaking
Still not sold on this game. My internet is to sucky to play online, and local multiplayer supposedly is garbage. I'll just stick with SSB.
I'm sure they will patch it very soon.
I want this for Mewtwo alone, any chance i get to play as Mewtwo is a win for, only reason i got Super Smash was to get the Mewtwo DLC , and to play as Ganondorf.
@ASonic3582 Oh, well if you can't use a Support Pokémon as a finisher, why did he bother mentioning that option in the video?
Well, no matter, it should be easy enough to finish it off with a Grab Attack with it stuck guarding like that.
@J-Manix98 Local multiplayer works perfectly fine. It's just not quite up to tournament level of performance (which is where the LAN option comes in).
