Pokken Tournament Won’t Be Limited To Fighting Types

Game Director and Chief Producer of a number of acclaimed fighting games, Katsuhiro Harada, has confirmed via Twitter that Pokken Tournament won’t be limited to Fighting Type Pokemon. Harada wouldn’t reveal any more than that, but hopefully we will get more details about the arcade based title in the near future.

    1. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Ah, fresh, clean air, away from all the vile scum that roam this world! Hipsters…go die….junkies..go die. A creative genious like my magnificent self has every RIGHT to boast about my many successes. NONE attributed to drug usage. Wheres that pablo Escobar, hey, Chapo…haha I know you’re reading this. You too, queer. And it looks like some other mainstay wants a piece of the action….it’s predictable, someone of prestige such as myself to attract a crowd is totally expected.

      Anyway, you LOSERS, how can you be over thirty and use profanity do freely? I thought you were adults???? Love dealing with contraband, stoopid junkies. My elite status is unrivaled, no substance needed for my survival. I’m BETTER THAN ALL….

      Like I told Jeffy, as we type, you derelicts are supplying me with funds. I’m co-created of one of the biggest shows to go viral in the last 3 years! I will not go into further detail; and I’ve been telling you pawns this…why do you think I am BETTER??? I sit back, collect off of my work, and I have free time to come on here and boast. Just finished my second project, my lawyer is in the process of pitching it to companies. I’m a creator, take notes, you scum…

      Stoopid vermin on this site:
      That Queer
      That Army Moron
      That (W)itch
      That Junkie(lord idiocy)
      And that other dumbass wanting some attention…Ice whatever…

      Hahahaha ALL OF THEM OVER 30…with hate on a younger more successful, leader. I don’t follow, I set trends…

      X 1 MILLION
      Stoopid poeple to mhuch stoopid poeple. Toodles!

        You most definitely want the attention of others if you are commenting to the first comment so yours will be at the top. So much for not caring nor needing the acknowledgement or acceptance of others.

      3. EstocZero, Nintendo Assassin

        Your responses ring of a retardation not usually found amidst those of your ilk.

        Sasori, we all know it’s you. Come on out and admit it.

        1. Stop, Estoc. Lmao you can’t win with this guy. He is very persistent and whatever you are trying to say to him is a waste of time. In addition, he will give you like a whole book to read every time he responds which isn’t very easy on the eyes. Lol.

          1. EstocZero, Nintendo Assassin

            That’s his prerogative. If he wants to waste his life writing entire essays about people he briefly meets online, then oh well.

            I’m just here to take note of it and laugh at him.

    1. Because fighting games start as arcade games in Japan. Think of it like a playable beta while the console modes are still being made, like story and whatnot

    2. SherlockWillFightBilbo

      Every fighting game released in Japan starts in the arcades and then moves to consoles. Seeing as Pokémon is Nintendo’s, it could only come to Wii U. We’ll probably have to wait a year, though.

    3. Because thats how fighting games made in Japan works, they first made it for Arcades then port it to a console, Tekken TT2 was a year in arcades before got a 360/PS3/Wii U port

    1. It’ll probably only be some, up to, 30 humanoid Pokemon. Fighting games are hard enough to balance with a limited roster like that, 700 would literally be impossible, unless Nintendo and Bandai teamed up to have all their employees work solely on this game for years

      1. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

        It be even more impossible if they were adding future pokemon as the main franchise is going along.

            1. Probably never. GameFreak is all about tradition & making a Pokemon RPG that’s not on a handheld is nearly unacceptable. Just look at how long the main series stuck with 2D sprites & has just recently gone 3D. If GameFreak ever does do a non handheld main Pokemon RPG, it’s going to take another 10 years.

                1. Or that. That’s probably the only way GameFreak will consider a fully fledged 3D Pokemon RPG on a Nintendo home console is if the game on it could quickly become a handheld game. GameFreak has always been about mobility & being physically social with the Pokemon franchise.

      Yeah… can’t happen because we have Pokemon like Rosalia and Joltik which are smaller than a pinky finger and then we have Pokemon like Wailord and Steelix which are larger than houses.

      They will probably stick to Pokemon that are about the size of a humanoid. Pokemon like Lucario, Blazekin, Mewtwo, Kangaskhan, Deoxys, Feraligator, Beedrill, Mr. Mime, Scizor, Abomasnow, Tyranitar, Hariyama, Rhyperior, Dusknoir, Aggron, Snorlax, Dragonite, Pangoro, Slaking, Goodra, Garchomp, Pinsir, Heracross, Sceptile, Cofagrigus, Aegislash, Empoleon, Typhlosion, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Golduck, Blastoise, Slowbro, Gengar, Gardevoir, Gallade, Magmortar, Druddigon. Bisharp, Chesnaught, Greninja, Zoroark, Alakasam, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Hitmontop, Krookodile, Seismatoad, Swampert, Delphox, Malamar, Treventant, Nidoking, Nidoqueen, Jynx, Sawk, Mienshao, Shiftry, Darmanitan, Barbaracle, Toxicroak, Throh, Zangoose, Medicham, Magmar, Kabutops, Poliwrath, Breloom, Metang, Vespiquen, Ambipom, Lopunny, Leavanny, Electavire, Excadrill, Conkledurr, Primape, etc.

    3. How will you explode with happiness? This is just Tekken with Pokemon. And Tekken Tag 2 was ok imo, but not that great.

      1. This is PKMN we’re talking about. lol I would’ve been super amazed if it happened. But the game, if coming to Wii U and should have came first, is gonna be kick ass regardless of how many PKMN are featured.

            1. Alright now. Don’t say I didn’t warn you when you see how it actually is. If you don’t like Tekken, you should not play this. I’m trying to save you from getting disappointed. XD

                      1. Because they all hardly have any character development. Nah. You pick them, they show up to flex some muscles/boobs and beat the shit out of each other which BTW have similar fighting gameplay style as the next fighting game. lol SF at least have background story telling of their characters.

                        1. They hardly have any character development? Wtf Tekken game you play? Lmao they give you a good glimpse of their stories in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. They definitely do have backgrounds. In fact, they’ve had backgrounds for multiple games… WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? XD

                          1. Well if that’s the first game, after all these years, to explain some deeper background story for the character, then I have two things to say: 1. WTF took them so long? 2. I never played Tag Tournament 2 and probably never will.

                            Like I said, I only played the arcade ones a few times and never explained shit to me about any of them because the game focuses on its main core: fighting. :)

                            1. Aha! Exposed! “I never played Tag Tournament 2 and probably never will”. If that’s how you think about that game then you should not get this! It IS Tekken but with Pokemon! XD And it didn’t take them long for character stories. They’ve been had those before newer games. Tekken 6 literally has a whole story mode in addition to showing you the characters individual stories after beating arcade mode. *XD

                              1. And isn’t Tekken Tag and 6 WITH STORY came after 5 which was the last game I played like last year or so? XD That’s what I mean. I know nothing because past games didn’t explain shit. lol

                                        1. Specifically what? ._. They all have their own story. You have a 360, go get Tekken 6 if you wanna know about them. XD

                                  1. pink0crystal0midbus

                                    It is coming to consoles. Nintendo just hasn’t said that yet. Tekken games are always released on Arcade machines before being released on consoles.

                                    If you actually want proof, Nintendo made an English version of the Pokken Tournament trailer. Why would they do that for a game that is supposedly for all we know coming to “Japanese” Arcade machines?

                                1. pink0crystal0midbus

                                  Herp derp. People are stupid.

                                  Obviously it won’t just include fighting types…. Mewtwo, Charizard, Deyoxes… you think they would leave those three out?

                                4. Oh you know Pikachu is going to be in this game as a fighter. They’ll find some way to put the series’ mascot in this game as playable.
