Since its release in March plenty of Pokémon fans have been able to re-enact some showdowns in Pokkén Tournament on Wii U, and in the West (particularly) it's easy to forget that this title first arrived as an arcade. That version has already had new characters added in the past, and now Scizor has been confirmed to arrive in arcades from 20th October.

It's a logical and relatively easy choice, especially as it's a bipedal bug; you can see the flashy reveal trailer (via GameXplain) below.

Will Scizor actually come to the Wii U version? A while ago data-miners found references to both Darkrai (already long since added to the arcade) and Scizor in the console version, but so far no roster updates or DLC have come through. It's a waiting game, ultimately.

Are you still playing Pokkén Tournament, and do you hope to see the likes of Darkrai and Scizor added to the roster? Let us know in the comments.
