Pokken Tournament

Wii U


Pokémon’s track record for offshoots is muddy. The core games are beloved, but venturing outside of the RPG genre rarely goes well for Pokémon. Pokkén does little to inspire hope for the franchise to successfully branch off in new directions, but does offer some depth during its well-paced matches. For those who want more than the small amount of Pokémon action combat seen in Super Smash Bros. over the years, it can be found here. Pokkén shares its developer with the Tekken series and its title openly expresses those roots, but the combat is split evenly
