Empoleon joins the 'Pokken Tournament' fight Bandai Namco

Almost a week after its reveal, Bandai Namco has finally released the trailer showcasing Empoleon in Pokken Tournament.

The reveal trailer shows Empoleon ’s entrance and, like all of the other trailers, most of the character’s combos and special attacks to give players an idea how to play the first Water-type Pokémon.

Check out the Empoleon in Pokken Tournament trailer below.

Some of Empoleon’s moves in Pokken Tournament are Drill Peck, which allows the Pokémon to zip across the field, and the use of an ice attack that can either slip up opponents or allow Empoleon to cut the distance between fighters faster. Empoleon can also stun opponents with an overhead slash of its wings and even trap enemies in a rock.

The Water-type Empoleon becomes the fourth character to join Pokken Tournament after the initial release along with Darkrai, Scizor and Croagunk. Empoleon was found in the coding of the Wii U version of Pokken Tournament alongside Darkrai and Scizor, so the Water types inclusion in the fighting game was inevitable.

Empoleon will join Japanese arcade version of Pokken Tournament on Dec. 15.

There has been no confirmation whether the Wii U version of Pokken Tournament will receive the newest fighters in a future update or whether the game will jump to the Nintendo Switch when it releases in March 2017.

Do you want Empoleon and the other Pokken Tournament characters added to the Wii U version or would you prefer a Nintendo Switch port? Sound off in the comments section below.
