Pokken Tournament DX

Introduction

Braixen looks like a very standard and straightforward zoner. However, she’s anything but. Braixen boasts amazing options at all ranges and has a mechanic that is unique only to her: support canceling. Braixen’s passive ability to gain support meter through her attacks whether or not they hit, combined with support canceling, allow her to take advantage of many supports in ways no one else can. Braixen’s flexible playstyle allows her to adjust her game plan on the fly, making her a strong character via adaptation.

Braixen also has the ability to enhance her special attacks with Sunny Day for added benefits. Two Sunny Day enhances back to back gives her a temporary attack buff, further increasing her damage potential. In burst, Braixen's special attacks are always enhanced and she gains access to a near full screen super which makes her burst mode one of the more oppressive burst modes in the game.

Braixen is a very flexible character with many strengths; any perceived weaknesses can be patched up simply by choosing a different support. She rewards those that are able to quickly think on their feet and adapt to the situation presented to them.
