Very recently, it was leaked that Mewtwo, Braixen, and Garchomp would be joining the fighter roster for Pokkén Tournament, but those were actually unrelated to the announcement last week that a new fighter would be revealed. Well, the lid's finally been lifted, and the new character is… unexpected.

The official Japanese website for the game has now announced that Chandelure is the new fighter. While this choice may seem a little out of left field, it'll likely have a unique moveset, though exactly how Chandelure will perform still remains to be seen. A video showcasing the new fighter is due to drop on the 31st; it'll be interesting to see how this pans out for the game.

What do you think? Are you glad that Chandelure is finally getting a shot at the limelight? What other fighters would you like to see added in a to some point? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
