There's definitely a difficulty jump against humans, but I'm batting a slightly greater than 60% win rate at the moment, and I'm no fighting game guru.

I'd probably be doing even better if I played as someone other than Gengar; I find it the most fun to play but I'm definitely better with other Pokkers, just ask Drunka.

I've only played unranked however, so I've had fights where the opponent was probably a child or someone completely new to the game, and others where I got completely rekt - I believe the matchmaking is random on that mode. On balance, you'll probably be picking up wins regularly in time once you learn how other players tend to handle the various characters - at least, that's what happened to me.

My top tip? Most players will start a fight by launching their Pok's long range special immediately - e.g. Suicune/Garvadoir/Mewtwo's A attack - a laser. So it's best to take evasive maneuvers first, and then try launching a few ranged attacks in response while closing in.

Thanks will definitely start with unranked I think then, I still need to try all the characters as I've only really used Lucario so far. That ranged attack start seems to be what the CPU always does as well so at least I've got practice with that.

In unranked games, I do seem to be matched with people on my rank, so it isn't totally random.

I'm normally matched against people with a middling win percentage, 40-60%, but I've had a few below 10% and above 90% (I even beat a 90%er, and that player had well over 30 matches backing their record up!). It might just be that those outliers are becoming less common now that players have had more matches, or you could be right and the game tries to find the best match for you but if there isn't a great match it just says 'screw it, these two are going to battle.' You'd have thought that most players are going to tend towards the 40-60% win rate though, so it's difficult to tell how random it is.

I'm guessing ranked mode has a stricter matchmaking criteria at any rate.

So I decided to give this a fair crack of the (Vine) whip - the only time I'd played it up to yesterday was for the video on the GNamer Forum YT! Embarrassed It's a cracking little fighter: I've got the rhythm of (Skill) swapping between the 3D bits and the 2D bits and am constantly learning the moveset of my freaky shrieky Chandelure. In fact, despite inwardly groaning when I drew Chanda at randa(om), it's my best friend (Guard) and I'm going to stick with it for the foreseeable. (Beat) Thumbs Up!

Earlier I finished part of the game and some of the English voice acting is shoddy as. One lad sounds like the automated voice on the train that disjointedly announces upcoming destinations. There's still some single player campaign left too.

Also, took on a human online. I got wapunga'd. 'Kerb stomp' doesn't even begin to cover it. Pale

I switched to Japanese voice acting as soon as the option came up. Hated the English lass.

The english voice acting is not only bad, but also incredibly repetitive. Super lame.

But yeah, switching to the Japanese audio makes it bearable background noise.

You comparing to the wrong series Drunka, this is Tekken based not Street Fighter.

I'm well aware of that mate, but I'm much more familiar with SF's character dynamics and metagame.

Also, I was drunk as a skunk

I don't play the game, but this newly announced (for the arcade) top troll Pokémon looks hilarious.

Hopefully we'll get Pokken Switch with all the extra arcade characters, and hopefully it will support the Hori Pad.
