Pokkén Tournament is a fighting game developed by Bandai Namco released in arcades in 2015 and Wii U in 2016. It was first teased at the Pokémon Game Show in August 2013 before an official unveiling in August 2014 by Tsunekazu Ishihara and the game's producers Masaaki Hoshino & Katsuhiro Harada.
This game is a hybrid of Pokémon and Tekken, and features various Pokémon fighting eachother in various surroundings. The battles take place in a large round arena and allow for players to fully move around it. As the battles get closer, movement is more closely locked into a 2D Fighting game style.. The controls are as follows: L activates Support, R Guards, A uses Pokémon attacks, B jumps, X is a weak attack and Y is a strong attack. Using the D-Pad and the buttons gives you various different moves. Fill a gauge to unleash Synergy Gauge for extra damage and Burst Attacks (and Mega Evolution)
There are various Pokémon available in this game, including ones that are not Fighting-type and that are not bipeds. In addition to the standard characters you can play as, you can select Support Pokémon to aid you in the battle.
This game uses a special controller in the arcade machine, as opposed to a fight stick, and is running location tests in January 2015. Then, in August 2015, it was announced that it would come out for the Wii U.
