To coincide with the 2022 Pokemon World Championships, Nintendo has decided to make a popular Pokemon game on Switch free for a limited time. At this point, there are a number of Pokemon games available on Switch, all of which have sold quite well. And while some fans would surely have liked to see Nintendo make games like Pokémon Sword/Shield, Pokemon Shiny Diamond/Shiny PearlWhere Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee become available free, the publisher is instead making a lesser-known entry in the franchise available to select Switch owners.
From tomorrow August 18 and until August 31, Pokken DX Tournament will be free to download and play on Nintendo Switch. First released in 2016, Pokemon Tournament originally launched as a Pokemon fighting game on Wii U. After the dismal success of the Nintendo console, the game was later ported to Switch as Pokken DX Tournament. This edition of the game contained more characters than normal and was generally well received by critics and fans.
Buy the full game at 30% off from 08/18 to 08/31.

As expected with this offer, however, Nintendo is unwilling to do Pokken DX Tournament completely free for all Switch owners. Instead, this deal is only available to those who are Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. This is something we’ve seen Nintendo do in the past with its Game Trial program, so it shouldn’t come as a shock in any way. And given Switch Online’s millions of subscribers, chances are you’ll qualify for this promotion.
In addition to just being free for the rest of the month, Nintendo has also chosen to lower the price of Pokken DX Tournament 30% off on Switch. So, if you happen to try the game and enjoy it for yourself, you can look to buy it outright at a lower than normal cost. Again, however, this offer is also exclusive to Switch Online members.
Will you seek to give Pokken DX Tournament a photo for yourself while it’s free on Switch? Or do you already own the game for yourself? Let me know in the comments or message me on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
