Scizor Is Pokkén Tournament’s Next Competitor


Last week, we learned that the arcade version of Pokkén Tournament would be adding a new Pokémon to its ranks. Today, that Pokémon’s identity has been revealed. Scizor will be added to the game on October 20, 2016.

Pokkén Tournament’s Scizor made his debut during a NicoNico stream earlier today, and the announcement was followed by an official introduction trailer. He’s a Power type and, if you watch the video until the very end, you’ll see him Mega Evolve into Mega Scizor for his Burst Attack.

Pokkén Tournament is available in arcades and on the Nintendo Wii U. There have been no announcements stating if newly added arcade characters like Darkrai and Scizor will come to the console version of the game.
