Croagunk is a poison/fighting-type. He also seems like a rather happy fellow, as he’s chuckling throughout his debut trailer. For his Burst Attack, which starts at the minute mark, Croagunk knocks his opponent down, summons copies of himself, then sends all of them to pile onto his enemy.



Croagunk will join the arcade version of Pokkén Tournament on November 10, 2016. Pokkén Tournament is immediately available in arcades and for the Nintendo Wii U.
