Scizor has been announced for the arcade version of the game.
Looks like a new character will be joining the roster of Bandai Namco and Nintendo’s Pokemon themed 3D fighter. Bandai Namco have confirmed that a new fighter will be joining the roster of Pokemon that duke it out in Pokken Tournament. The announcement was made on a livestream, which was captured by the fine folks over at Nintendo Everything.
Scizor is the second new character heading over to Pokken after its release- the first was Darkrai, who was added earlier this year. Right now, he is only confirmed for the arcade version, but chances are, he will be headed over to the Wii U version of the game soon, too.
Scizor is, of course, the evolution of Scyther- his excellent typing, great stats, and incredible movepool have made him a favorite in the mainline Pokemon games. Judging by the footage of him in Pokken that was shown, it looks like he will be retaining his status as a go-to in the fighter, too.
