Starting a LAN Battle and Things to Watch Out For

• To start up LAN battle mode, press the Start Button while holding down the L Button, R Button, and down on the +Control Pad.

• When you’re matching (finding an opponent to battle), it is necessary to set up the rules the same way on both consoles.

*The use or non-use of player data has no effect on matching.

• It may take a few seconds after you begin the search to find an opponent.


Selecting a Controller

You can only select which controller to use when entering LAN battle mode.

*You can change controllers by returning to the title screen.

Avoiding Interference

In areas where electrical signals are present, there is a possibility that the connection will be unstable and controls may become difficult. By using the Pokkén Tournament Pro Pad, you can avoid the effects of electrical signals.
