* ComebackMechanic: Some cheer skills work like this. For example, the standard skill's effect is greater if you lose a round, and the pressure focused skill only activates in the final round.

* ComebackMechanic: Some cheer skills work like this. For example, the standard skill's effect is greater if you lose a round, and the pressure focused skill only activates in the final round. The game also features a fairly extreme version of the Rage system from Tekken: attacks do significantly more damage when your HP is low versus when it's not, and damage received scales down dramatically as well.



* SeriesMascot: Lucario is the face of the game, appearing before even the ''Pokémon'' franchise mascot, Pikachu. Somewhat {{justified|Trope}} in that Lucario is a Fighting-type Pokémon. As such, the other Fighting-type Pokémon -- Machamp, Blaziken, Mega Mewtwo X, and Shadow Mega Mewtwo X -- become TheRival. Eventually, however, advertisements began to regular feature Pikachu Libre as another mascot alongside Lucario, mostly using her to promote the console version of the game.

As of ''DX'', however, its prominence has been downplayed, with the cover art instead being a group shot of the entire cast and Lucario de-emphasized compared to Pikachu and Decidueye.

** Curioously, many, ''many'' moves circumvent or otherwise disrupt this triangle. Some Blue attacks pierce guards, Chandelure's Overheat and other similar "armored" Red moves break counters, and some normal attacks can be grabbed regardless.

* AntiRageQuitting: While implemented to a small degree in the Wii U version, it wasn't very effective. Rage quitting worsened your win ratio and cost you 200,000 units of money, but didn't effect your rank and could even be used to dance around Rank Downs and failed Rank Up matches. ''DX'' fixes this by counting all disconnects as losses mechanically as well, meaning rank points and potentially ranking matches are automatically lost. Habitual rage quitting also leads to a mark next to your username.

** In the Wii U version, players chose from 3 pairs of Support Pokemon in the My Town menu and had to constantly shift them around if they wanted to use others in online modes or the Ferrum League. This was changed so that the entire Support list is always selectable in ''DX'' regardless of mode.
** All gameplay relevant features are unlocked from the start in ''DX'', leaving only clothing and the new Snow Gift stage as unlockables.


Added DiffLines:

** ''DX'' includes daily challenges that involve a random Battle Pokemon and support set, to incentivize playing characters you wouldn't normally.

* TriumphantReprise: During the final battle with Shadow Mewtwo, [[spoiler: when Anne grants you infinite Synergy - the only thing that can so much as scratch it at the time - the typical Burst thing is replaced with a more grandiose version in opposition of the dark theme that plays for Shadow Mewtwo.]]
