New fighters!

Charizard is all fired up and ready to go! The Smash veteran makes its Pokkén debut with an arsenal of fire, flying, and dragon type moves. Confirmed to be a Power character, Charizard’s playstyle showcases its talent for tossing enemies around like cheap playthings. Upon activating its burst attack, the ever-stylish Charizard X takes the stage – never seen in public without that dazzling blue scarf.


Weavile also wants a cut of the action. A Speed character, Weavile keeps its enemies on their toes with its fancy footwork and razor-sharp claws. With an assortment of ice and dark type moves at its disposal, the feisty littly bugger is sure to make quick work of any who fail to keep up.

These two Pokémon bring Pokkén Tournament‘s revealed roster up to a total of eight, joining the likes of Suicune and Gengar in the series’ first ever exclusive brawler. The game is set to roll out in Japanese arcades later this month – July 16th, 2015!
