Pokkén Tournament (Japanese: ポッ拳 POKKÉN TOURNAMENT Pokkén: Pokkén Tournament) is a Pokémon arcade fighting game heavily based on the Tekken series gameplay style. Bandai Namco Entertainment, the owners of the Tekken intellectual property, developed the game under license from The Pokémon Company, and are responsible for distributing arcade cabinets in Japan.

After a limited demo run at a few locations, the full game became widely available at various public arcades in Japan starting from July 16, 2015. On July 22, 2015, a Dave & Buster's representative stated on Reddit that the arcade game would be tested at D&B locations, and became available at the Times Square Dave & Buster's on September 24, 2015 for a limited time.

On August 21, 2015, a Wii U port of Pokkén Tournament was revealed. The Wii U port was released in Japan, North America, and Europe on March 18, 2016 and in Australia on March 19, 2016, and it features Pikachu Libre, Braixen, Garchomp and Mewtwo as playable characters. While the Wii U port works with regular Wii U controllers, the Pokkén Tournament Pro Pad accessory has also been released, as a special controller that is similar to the Pokkén Tournament arcade controller.

On June 6, 2017, an enhanced Nintendo Switch port of Pokkén Tournament, titled Pokkén Tournament DX (Japanese: ポッ拳 POKKÉN TOURNAMENT DX Pokkén: Pokkén Tournament DX) was revealed. It will be released in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and Hong Kong on September 22, 2017.

Gameplay

Taking place in Ferrum, the game combines the gameplay of the Tekken series with Pokémon characters.

Modes

  • Practice (Japanese: チュートリアル) - In Techne City, players can participate in a tutorial on how to play the game and play practice battles using any rules. Players can also access the Action Dojo and the Combo Dojo.
  • Single Battle (Japanese: シングルプレイ) - Tellur Town is the home of single battles. Once the CPU's Pokémon and level are set, battle begins.
  • Local Battle (Japanese: 店内対戦) - Selen Island is where two players playing on the same system go to battle.
  • Online Battle (Japanese: 全国対戦) - Neos City is the portal to battle on the Internet. Players may also check out the global rankings here.
  • Ferrum League - Players battle here to become the Ferrum League Champion. There are four different levels of league play that players can participate in; each league consists of league matches to find the top 8 in the league. Those eight face off in an elimination bracket to determine the league champion. This is a single-player mode.
  • My Town - Old Ferrum Town is the player's hometown and is where players can change settings such as their partner Pokémon and Support Pokémon Set. Players can also see their battle record in this area.

Battles

Battles have two different phases which will often change during battle. Battles begin in Field Phase (Japanese: フィールドフェイズ), where players can move about freely in a circular 3D environment in a 3D battlefield. If either player lands a certain type of move, a Phase Change (Japanese: フェイズチェンジ) occurs, putting the battle into Duel Phase (Japanese: デュエルフェイズ), placing players into a 2D battlefield. Controls also change in this form of play.

Ferrum League

The Ferrum League is the place where trainers go to try to become the champion. The goal is to get into the top eight trainers, as which point players may vie for the championship. There are four modes of play here:

  • League Match - Initially the only mode available, this is where players begin their journey to the top of the league by battling other league participants in a set of five matches. When five matches are completed, players are assigned a new rank based on their performance and returned to the Ferrum League menu.
  • Tournament - When players make it into the top eight, they are allowed to enter the bracketed tournament where the winner becomes Ferrum League Champion. (Locked until a player is in the Top 8.)
  • Promotion Test - Once a player is Champion of a division in the Ferrum League, it's possible to participate in a battle against the league master. Winning this battle gains access to the next league. (Locked until the player becomes Champion of its respective League.)
  • Free Battle - Players may battle in matches against league participants. Battles are against a random member of the respective League.

Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

In the Ferrum region, where competitions known as Ferrum Battles are held, the player takes control of a character who aims to rise to the top of the Ferrum League. After creating the avatar, the player meets Nia, their guide to the Ferrum League. With their partner Pokémon, the player enters the first rank of the Ferrum League and battles their way to the Promotion Test, which allows entry into the next rank. However, the player is ambushed by a mysterious young woman with a strange black Mewtwo, whom they are forced to fight.

Regardless of the outcome of the fight against the black Mewtwo, the player progresses to the next rank. The black Mewtwo and mysterious woman appear again and challenge the player once more. As the player continues to rise in the Ferrum League, other competitors begin gossiping about the Mewtwo—now dubbed Shadow Mewtwo—and a strange phenomenon in which Gaia, the energy that allows Synergy Stones to bond the humans and Pokémon in Ferrum, appears to be draining away.

After the player clears the third rank, the Ferrum League is put on hold as a result of the draining of Gaia energy. The mysterious woman introduces herself as Anne and explains the events that are occurring. Shadow Mewtwo is a normal Mewtwo, corrupted by the Shadow Synergy Stone embedded in its shoulder; when Anne was a child, the Shadow Synergy Stone endangered her, and to protect her from its influence, Mewtwo sacrificed itself to take her place. Mewtwo is now being consumed by the Shadow Synergy Stone, which is forcing it to fight opponents throughout Ferrum to gain greater power. The Shadow Synergy Stone's power is causing Gaia energy to drain as well. Anne hopes to save Mewtwo by purifying the Shadow Synergy Stone using a special brooch containing a Synergy Stone, separating the two so Mewtwo can return to a peaceful existence while Anne returns the purified stone to her people. Anne guides the player and Nia to the Regi Ruins, where she introduces Walter, the elder of her people, who reveals that the brooch is currently lacking the power to purify the Shadow Synergy Stone. This can be repaired by the brooch being exposed to the Synergy Power of high-level battles, so Walter challenges the player, then directs them to fight three others scattered throughout the region. However, after the second fight of the three, Anne realizes time has run out and Shadow Mewtwo must be dealt with immediately.

With support from Nia and Anne, the player ventures deep into the woods of northern Ferrum, where Shadow Mewtwo's hideout is finally located. Though unable to use Synergy Burst due to the severe drainage of Gaia, the player engages in a final battle with Shadow Mewtwo. The Shadow Synergy Stone's power fluctuates throughout the fight, forcing a 1-1 tie between the player and Shadow Mewtwo. For the final round, Anne's prayers manage to focus enough Gaia to allow the player to use a permanent Synergy Burst. Once defeated, Shadow Mewtwo collapses and the Shadow Synergy Stone begins overloading, but Anne's brooch overwhelms and finally purifies it. The stone separates from Shadow Mewtwo, returning it to its normal form. Though saddened by the fact that the brooch broke during use, Anne expresses gratitude for the player saving Mewtwo, whom she asks the player to take care of — unlocking Mewtwo as a playable character — while she returns the purified Shadow Synergy Stone to the safety of her people's care.

With the disaster averted and Gaia restored, the Ferrum League reopens, allowing the player to resume their quest to reach the top by winning the Chroma League. Once the player accomplishes the championship, Shadow Mewtwo is unlocked as a playable character from that point forward. Additionally, a secret Ferrum League rank—the Iron League—becomes accessible, and the player may freely replay a number of the Shadow Mewtwo story events.

amiibo

amiibo are usable within the game to unlock otherwise unobtainable avatar costume items and titles via a "Special Bonus". Sometimes, the reward will simply be in-game currency. Five bonus rewards can be obtained per day. Additionally, any one individual amiibo can only be scanned once per day. Pokémon amiibo are not the only ones that will work with the game; any existing amiibo can be used to receive a reward.

The Shadow Mewtwo promotional card packaged with first-run copies of the game immediately unlocks Shadow Mewtwo for use in the game prior to completing the story, though it will need to be re-scanned each time the game is played. Also, it can not be used as the partner Pokémon (which means it can't be used in the Ferrum League) until unlocked the normal way.

Promotion

A brief snippet of footage from the game featuring Lucario and Blaziken first appeared at the end of a retrospective at the Pokémon Game Show, which was held in Tokyo on August 17 and 18, 2013. Later that month, the game's title was discovered as a trademark registered in Japan and the United States, although the connection between the title and the footage was not confirmed until the game's formal announcement. The game was officially announced on a NicoNico livestream that was held by the The Pokémon Company on August 26, 2014, which showed Lucario (which Mega Evolved into Mega Lucario) fighting Machamp. The English Pokémon site also mentioned the announcement, and uploaded the debuting teaser trailer for the game on their YouTube channel.

Bandai Namco Games, the game's developer, asked for fighter suggestions. Japanese residents could Tweet at @pokken_official with the Pokémon they would like to see using the hashtag #ポッ拳 in order to make a suggestion. Due to having the most requests, Gengar was confirmed as a fighter in April 2015.

Trivia

  • In the trailer announcing the game coming to Wii U in spring of 2016, the scene where Mega Lucario charges up an Aura Sphere could possibly be a reference to the opening of Super Street Fighter II, in which Ryu charges and fires off a Hadouken.
  • This is the only Pokémon game to use its Japanese logo in international releases.
  • The German version of this game is the only one that does not utilize the portmanteau Pokkén, instead opting for a title with the separated terms "Pokémon Tekken".
    • This may be due to the fact that the German word Pocken, meaning smallpox, has a similar pronunciation to the term Pokkén.
  • Although the icon for the face in the shop has a mustache, none of the options have any facial hair at all.
    • However, at least 1 NPC has a beard.
  • None of the playable characters or support Pokémon are Rock-type.
    • Additionally, none of the playable characters are Normal-type.
  • Substitute dolls and Mokujin training dummies can be seen in the background of the Ferrum Dojo stage.
  • A girl with a striking resemblance to the Hex Maniac Trainer Class of X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire can be seen in the background of the Haunted House Stage frantically trying to open a locked door. She notably has no facial features.
