    Hey, look. More Wii U content.

    Reminder that Pokken is a much better game than Street Fighter V.

    Wii U version still doesn’t have Darkrai yet, does it? And being better than Street Fighter V admittedly isn’t a huge feat.

    Giraffes neck-chopping each other is better than SFV

    Since scizor was fighting a fire-type without trouble, I take it weaknesses and resistances are not applied here?

    Wii U is never getting these characters though, the game’s obviously getting an NX rerelease with the new characters..

    Also just because it sold better than the buggy unfinished mess that was Street Fighter V doesn’t mean shit.

    This is coming from someone who has the game and enjoyed it fairly enough. It would be pretty alright if it wasn’t for that pointless as all hell 3D segment that gets in the way of the actual fun 2D part of the game.

    I haven’t played it much but yeah. As a fighting game where you can only use one Pokemon per battle and don’t get to equip yourself to counteract elements. Types don’t mean much though obviously guys with more ranged attacks play that way.

    Imagine if the Dark Hado in Street Fighter was strong against the Normal folks. It wouldn’t add up.

    Imagine if they used the Pokken style combat in a mainstream pokemon game.
