The trial definitely seems like a win for Nintendo.
Played a bit of the Pokken DX demo today. Went in blind, so I don't know most of what I'm doing, but overall had a pretty good time!
Decidueye and Garchomp are the ones who felt the most comfortable for me to use, so I guess those're the mains at this point.

Not everyone plans on sticking with it, though.
Also the only reason I'm playing Pokk?n is because it's free for a limited time
So I'll probably never play the game again
