It’s the end of the bracket for Pokkén Tournament DX. The Pocket Monster’s beat ’em up will no longer be a part of the Pokémon Championship Series after 2022, The Pokémon Company has announced.

Pokkén Tournament has been part of the Championships since 2016 and the Wii U version, and its sixth year will be its final one and won’t be seen at the Play! Pokémon events. No reason has been given for the game’s removal from the line-up, but the game hasn’t been updated for a long time, and perhaps The Pokémon Company sees something different in the Championship Series’ future.

Despite many fans expecting this, this is likely very disappointing for them. Many want to see the 2022 Championship Series out with a bang because of this announcement, and we hope that the community can make this happen.

Maybe, just maybe, The Pokémon Company and Bandai Namco could treat us to a sequel? Then we’d get to see more Pokkén in action. We’re just hoping out loud, here.
