Review: Pokken Tournament

When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two weeks with it on Wi...

Get a load of some of Pokken Tournament's advanced combos

Pokken Tournament hits Wii U on March 18

Just last night we heard about Chandelure joining the cast of fighters in Pokkén Tournament, which immediately increases my interest in the title. Sure, it makes sense for Lucario and Machamp to be fighters in the game, but a ghost c...

Dark Mewtwo is actually Shadow Mewtwo

Just a bit of housekeeping. The new Mewtwo form copped over the weekend is officially Shadow Mewtwo, not Dark Mewtwo as early sleuths sussed. Makes sense what with its "Shadow ___" moves. Not too much else revealed in the characters' debut...

Mewtwo gets a new form in Pokken Tournament

There's a Gardevoir in this Pokken Tournament trailer

Sure, this general Pokkén Tournament trailer is a little less balls to the wall exciting than seeing Luchador Pikachu doing a Stone Cold Stunner, but, hey, there's some Gardevoir action going on, eh? The Bandai Namco-developed fight...

Pokken Tournament is coming to Wii U in 2016

Vote for support Pokemon in Pokken Tournament

Brutal Blaziken was introduced yesterday to the Namco-developed fighter Pokkén Tournament, so the weed-loving fan favorite is in, but perhaps some 'mons less suited for 1-on-1 combat can still make an appearance? Fennekin and Lapras ...

And that's why you don't mess with Blaziken
