Pokemon Reveals Pokken Tournament Dx for Nintendo Switch; Added to E3 Tournaments

  • Cinelinx
The Pokemon Direct has come and gone and with it hopes for Pokemon Stars on the Nintendo Switch. Instead it revealed a recycled title coming to the Nintendo Switch and an updated title staying on the 3Ds.

And the crowd went mild...

That's the general feeling most had when the Pokemon Direct opened showing Pokken Tournament Dx going to the Nintendo Switch. It didn't get any better when they announced Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on 3Ds. While all these titles are fine in their own right, the idea that we'd get a fully fledged Pokemon game on the Nintendo Switch (Pokemon Stars) caused expectations to soar to new heights and fall to new lows, after the reveal.

Nevertheless, Pokken Tournament Dx will now join the ranks of Nintendo Switch games and will likely find a bigger following than it had on the Wii U. On the flip side of the coin,

Doris Day‘s life hasn’t always been as sunny as her chipper personality suggests.

The Bachelorette Recap: JoJo Fletcher Goes on a Two-on-One with Arch Enemies Chad and Alex – Who Makes the Cut?

The Bachelorette Recap: JoJo Fletcher Goes on a Two-on-One with Arch Enemies Chad and Alex – Who Makes the Cut?
Are you sick of hearing about Chad yet? Same, but unfortunately he's not done terrorizing America yet.

On Tuesday's episode of The Bachelorette, we picked up right where we left off on Monday, with Chad being generally aggressive, very mean and also quite legitimately frightening.

The Pool PartyThings started off innocently enough, with JoJo Fletcher coming by the house for the pool party that replaced this week's cocktail party because JoJo just looks that good in a bikini.

Chad even apologized, sort of, to Evan – or at least promised to give him $20 for the shirt he ripped off his back in a fit of rage.
