Weavile Joins Pokkén Tournament

The Dark/Ice Pokémon Joins the Upcoming Fighting Game!

The fan-favorite Pokémon will be a playable fighter in the upcoming Pokkén Tournament, an arcade fighting game developed by Namco Bandai and the Pokémon Company.
Weavile is one of the few Pokémon introduced that is not a legendary Pokémon and doesn’t have a Mega Evolution, alongside Pikachu.

Physically, weavile seems to be on the shorter side of the Pokémon, again, like Pikachu, which will make for some visually interesting battles. Its size is not just for show, it also seems to make it a hard target.
Weavile is also shown to be really fast with its big, sharp claws, which will make for some fast-paced gameplay and high-numbered combos.
Like the other Pokkén Tournament announcements, there’s no official YouTube upload, so here’s the trailer uploaded by the good folks at GameXplain:

Charizard Joins Pokkén Tournament

Everyone’s Favorite Fire Pokémon Joins the Fighting Game!

Charizard, the first and one of the most popular Fire Pokémon in the franchise, is set to be one of the playable fighters in the upcoming 3rd person fighting game.
The second fire starter showed so far.

If you have followed the Pokémon comunity for the past 20 or so years, you’ll know that Charizard is no doubt one of the most popular Pokémon in the world, so it should come as no surprise that he’d join this spin-off game.

Charizard seems to have some of the moves that you’d expect he’d have in a fighting game, like flamethrower and some attacks with his jaw and claws.
Like others in this game, Charizard has been given a more “natural” or “realistic” look to fit the more animal-like animations for this game. His mega-form has also been confirmed to appear in the game.
You can watch the trailer (there’s no official upload at the moment) uploaded by GameXplain right here:

Gengar Joins Pokkén Tournament

The Shadow Pokémon is Confirmed in the Upcoming Fighting Game.

Gengar, the fan favorite Ghost-type, has been confirmed to be on Pokkén Tournament, an upcoming arcade fighting game based on the Pokémon series.
Also confirmed is the appearance of Mega Evolutions in the game.

Gengar showing off his move Shadow Ball.
Gengar is one of, if not the most beloved Ghost-type in the series, and a Generation 1 Pokémon, so it is not that surprising that we’re now seeing him in the upcoming, more selective, arcade game.
Mega Gengar, as he appears in the game.
We get some gameplay footage showing some classic moves from the original games, such as his Shadow Ball, Shadow Punch and some others fans might recognize, all attacks are shown in interesting and functional ways for this title.
At the end of the trailer we can see Mega Gengar, confirming Mega Evolutions appear in the fighting game. As to how will these work, is yet to be shown if they’ll work as special moves or as temporary transformations, either way, this shows just how much deep this game is digging into the Pokémon series.

There’s no official source for the footage yet, but there’s a live capture from an event in Japan bellow:
