Empoleon Joins Pokken Tournament on December 15

pokken-tournament-11-30-16-1

Bandai Namco has announced yet another combatant for Pokken Tournament.

The latest fighter confirmed for the game is Empoleon, and the generation IV Pokemon will join the game on December 15th.

It’s worth mentioning this is the fourth addition to the game’s Japanese arcade release – following Darkrai, Scizor, and Croagunk. Thus far, Bandai Namco hasn’t confirmed a Wii U release for these additional characters.

    “Thus far, Bandai Namco hasn’t confirmed a Wii U release for these additional characters.”

    I’m guessing that is isn’t going to EVER happen at this point.

    You’d think they’d do a Gen 7 Pokemon. The fully evolved fire starter was practically made for the game. Some of the Ultra Beasts would work too, and I personally think Golisopod or Alolan Golem would be neat.

    I’d love to see Pheromosa playable. Its even a fighting type. Would be a fantastic choice for the game.

    At this point, Nintendo is trying to salvage every Wii U game worth salvaging. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pokken is one of those games.

    Dunno, but it feels like Gen 2 is getting left in the dust with Pokken.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see a “definitive edition” of some sort released for it.
