Pokkén Tournament is just a few weeks away on Wii U, all set to bring its brand of Pokémon brawling into our living rooms. Nintendo will no doubt be promoting it quite heavily, and for its part Nintendo UK is launching a 'Countdown Clash' series; the idea is that videos will introduce match-ups, we all pitch in and vote for who we want to win and the brawl itself will then be shared on Thursdays.
It's a nice way to introduce characters along with their strengths and weaknesses, while those that vote will be in a draw (UK only) to win a copy of the game and the Pro Controller, which mimics the arcade pad. All you need to do is vote on the YouTube videos or via Twitter.
The first match-ups are below - are you Team Pikachu Libre like this writer?
why on earth is everyone saying pock-en tournament. even if it is the correct pronunciation, its really off putting for me, considering you don't say pock-e-mon.
They really could of chosen a less sweary sounding name, couldn't they?
Aside from that, do we know what the amiibo support is yet?
Call it poe-ken tournament as in poe-kémon
Pock-en as in Pock-et Monsters just doesn't sound quite right...
@themac2001 Because it's a play of words with "tekken"...
I am looking forward to this game looks AWESOME to me .
It looks solid, but ill have to wait until a review(online to be precise)
I pronounce it as poke'en like tek'en but my two picks too win are Pikachu Libre and Lucario really looking forward too playing this game and getting my butt whipped i bet lol.
I can't wait for this.
Seriously though the name is pronounced with a hard O as in Poke and the é is pronounced as a long e as in ee and Pokémon
Pok (as in Poke) kén (as in Keen)
I've ran the title through speech software to make sure I was pronouncing it correctly.
I guess the American jokes about the British not being able to pronounce correct, keeps on giving.
Chandelure makes no sense in this context XD
But that's why Pokken looks so interesting and amazing!
And come on! It's not hard to pronunce! Just try to say Pokemon and switch to Tekken in the middle, Pok-ken! Easy! ^_^
The game looks amazing, but the announcer's voice in this video is really lifeless, as if he's not even trying...
@MrGawain i have seen what they do and its like hyrule warriors but you can get outfit pieces, titles, lots of money but i forget if anything else and i not counting shadow mewtwo which unlocks shadow mewtwo.
He says pock-en because he's british, that's how they speak, due to the accent.
Poe-kemon is the right way to say it!!
@themac2001 You're right to pronounce Pokken Tournament (ポッ拳) like "poh-ken". The katakana used in the Japanese version is 'ポ' which is pronounced "poh". If it was supposed to be pronounce with a soft 'a' they would have use the 'pah' (パ) katakana.
We pronounce Pokemon the exact same way as the Japanese do, so I don't see why that should change for Pokken....
we pronounce pocket differently yes, but not Pokemon...
@exDeveloper yeah but poe-ken still works. you say tekken as tek-ken.
@starcatcher77 so am i? i say it poe-ken. i dont say pock-e-mon.
@Xenocity yes. yes. of course. all of us. but there was that one dude in this European direct who kept on saying pock-e-mon soooooo......
