Long rumoured as a new combatant in the excellent Pokkén Tournament, Empoleon is finally making his debut in the coin-op edition of the popular one-on-one brawler, and Bandai Namco has released a special trailer to mark the occasion.
Packed with in-game action featuring the penguin-like Pokémon, the trailer shows the character using a wide range of water-based attacks on his hapless enemies.
Empoleon follows in the footsteps of Darkrai, Scizor and Croagunk, all of which have been added to the coin-op version of the game. Data for these fighters exists in the Wii U version, but there's been no word on them being added to the home console variant of the game.
Sadly, Wii U will be sleep in eternity. Hopefully the game appear also on Switch with more playable Pokemons and new places.
Just waiting on the DLC pack for WiiU....
I love how Empoleon entered riding on a wave. That was perfect. His moveset looks really great too. If this comes to WiiU I'm definitely buying Empoleon.
His voice is nothing like I would ever imagine a Empoleon would sound, haha. He looks really cool though!
@Tsurii Just wait until Machamp and Empoleon start duking it out!
Too bad Wii U has been left for dead. The new characters would add life to the game.
It would be awesome if they would add the extra Pokémon to the Wii U version if not I really really hope they get added to the Switch version., Pokken Tournament is such an amazing title gets a ton of play at our house .
@Tsurii I don't hear it
Empoleon seems like a fun character. He looks just a bit too shiny though, like some of the other Pokemon on the roster.
I work at Pokken Industries, and they're all secretly made of plastic.
Shhh, don't tell anyone though, it could ruin us forever...
They gave it a voice of an arrogant anime kung fu guy.
Empoleon looks like a hard hitting close brawler type. Would be nice for the Wii U too get the updates but Switching Pokken Tournament too the Switch makes sense.
