Pokken Tournament DX

Introduction

In drawing from its roots as a spin-off of a traditional RPG game, Pokken includes many status buffs and debuffs that can be applied to characters. Many characters have the ability to debuff the opponent, a few have the ability to buff themselves, and exactly one can buff the opponent. However, the most frequent source of buffs or debuffs are supports, which either provide a direct buff to their user or an offensive hitbox that causes debuffs. All status effects in Pokken come with a timer that can be affected by certain actions such as Suicune's Up-stance or Chandelure's ]X[ "Disco Inferno", and certain moves such as Croagunk's Thief or Scizor's Bug Bite can change their effects depending on the buff status of the combatants. Buffs come in many distinct varieties.

A Critical Hit increases the first hit by 20%, and all hits afterwards in a combo by 10%.
