The Attack Triangle as displayed in the game's tutorial

The Attack Triangle is a mechanic in Pokkén Tournament that balances three of the main types of attacking: Normal Attacks, Grab Attacks, and Counter Attacks.

Mechanics Edit

Normal attacks score critical hits on opponents while they're attempting a Grab Attack, Grab Attacks score critical hits on Counter Attacks, and Counter Attacks absorb damage from Normal attacks. Interactions between these types of attacks can be seen by different-colored auras around the fighters, with Normal attacks creating a red aura, Grab Attacks becoming green, and Counter Attacks being blue.
