With the recent announcement of the Tekken cross Pokemon collaboration title Pokken Tournament in the works by Bandai Namco, fans were left wondering which Pokemon would be included in the final roster. Since the announcement provided very little details, Game Director Katsuhiro Harada has taken to Twitter to reveal some more information about the game. A summary of these tweets is summed up below:

  • The arcade version might come to North America.
  • The roster will not be limited to just fighting type Pokemon.
  • Likewise, a Pokemon not having two legs will also not disqualify it from the roster.
  • Harada refused to comment on if a Pokemon’s typing will play a role in battle.
  • He also refused comment if their will be a team based aspect or simple 1 vs 1 matches.
  • The roster will not include any guest appearances from the Tekken Cast.
  • The game will not feature a high/mid/low guard system like Tekken and Soul Calibur. A new mechanic will replace this feature. We are guessing it will be more simple based on the general audience of the franchise.

Taking some of that information into account, we’ve compiled a list of what we think could be a likely roster for the eventual home release on the Wii U. Tekken 6 had a total of 43 characters in its final edition on home consoles, so we are going to limit this roster to 40 spots to give some leeway. Keep in mind this is simply a predicted roster and in no way indicative of the final character list that will be in the game when it releases in 2015. We based the list on diversity, popularity and how well they would fit into a Tekken game as well as Pokemon we just want to see in as playable.

  • 1. Lucario (Confirmed)
  • 2. Machamp (Confirmed)
  • 3. Blaziken (Very likely as was featured in the first image seen of the game back in June)

    Gengar and Heracross are in my top faves pokemon. Love Syther as well but needed Scizor. Hard to explain why you would have one but not the other. Seems to me Pikachu and Ditto (if he needs time to transform) are very undersize and are definitley at the disadvantage.

    • I dont think both Scyther and Scizor will both make it, thats why i went with Scyther for those awesome scythes. Pikachu will probably be in because Pikachu, and Ditto would just transform into a random Pokemon at the start of the match, so would never fight as a Ditto.

    I’d want Seviper over Arbok and Naturally you’d need Zangoose to compliment him.

    Smeargle is my most wanted as the perfect Joke Character
