If you seriously thought that Charizard, who is probably the most popular and iconic Pokemon design of all time, would be left out of, well, any Pokemon project including the upcoming Tekken like Pokemon fighting game Pokken Tournament, then I have a bridge to sell you. And yes, Chrizard has indeed been confirmed for Pokken Tournament, alongside the far less popular, but still pretty cool, Weavile.
That’s not all, as we also have a release date for Pokken- it will be launching in Japanese arcades later this month on July 16. Bear in mind a console version of this game is still not confirmed, although a Wii U or NX version being announced eventually is not out of the question- that would also probably be the only way we would be able to play this game in the west.
In other news, Jirachi and Whimsicott are confirmed as support Pokemon. What, did you expect them to actually be able to take on Charizard or Lucario in physical combat? Don’t be ridiculous. Only Pikachu can do that.
