Battle time!

A new video has just gone live which shows of the basic movesets of Pikachu and Lucario in the forthcoming Wii U brawler Pokkén Tournament.

Due for release worldwide on March 18th, the game is being co-developed by Tekken creator Bandai Namco and will see various characters from the Pokémon universe duking it out for fame and glory.

The video shows the various button commands for a series of moves, and gives you a fair idea of how the game will play. It also includes a short preview of the next cinematic outing for the franchise - Pokémon The Movie X, Y & Z - which is also due for release in Japan this year.
