Would be cool if they implement some sort of rock paper scissors or kind of elemental affinity system.
This paired with swappable attacks would make for an interesting twist on the fighting genre with the tactics from the Pokemon metagame.
Will we have Gardevoir? I want my sexy Gardevoir.
I expected this.
Gotta have the mascot as a playable, right?
But at least we may get Pokemon like Pinsir and Lopunny. Maybe even Zangoose or Kangaskhan.
>ps4 or xbone
pikachu is a fucking nintendo asset just like mario, is never gonna happen.
also, just check pokemon merchandise, it has the fucking nintendo trademark before gamefreak trademark.
Because Nintendo felt like doing that. Nothing happens with Pokemon without Iwata's personal sign off. It isn't a GameFreak game, it's a Nintendo game. GameFreak owns a minority share and Nintendo owns a majority of GameFreak itself. Pokemon is Nintendo first party. Except for like the 2 percent that Funimation owns. Also, the TCG game has been on PC for many years.
>SmashBros x Pokken will become a thing in your life time
THIS IS IMPORTANT GUYS
CAN I ZONE THE SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE
Point is, GameFreak is a second party, like Rare was. They have to approve stuff like Pokken Fighters and Pokemon X Nobunga. Proof of this is how they have complete say in how Pokemon can be portrayed in Smash(Pikachu's ears). They decide to up and leave Nintendo, Pokemon goes with them along with Creatures.
>bases how good a Pokemon is on height
Someone is an insecure manlet trying to fit in. Besides, they make most of them below 6' because they're around kids. Don't want their trainers to be eaten by their dragon Pokemon in one bite. But the Pokdex is bullshit anyway so if you base anything off of that you're retarded.
Who Meloetta here? Sing it out.
Would have included Scrafty if he was on the roster maker.
It's survival of the fittest on a global scale!
Who will make it out on top!
Not necessarily. Many of the fighting types represent different martial arts styles. So you could make an interesting game with just fighting types.
Not to say I'm not glad we won't have a larger variety, mind you.
No it doesn't, at all. Nintendo owns Majority of Pokemon and GameFreak. Nintendo would have to make the decision to make GameFreak leave Nintendo.
Pokemon is first party, GF is barely second party. It's more like Rare and DK. They worked on the games but they don't fucking own it. They can't up and take it and GF having say in how it's represented is more of a courtesy than a necessity.
Those Elemental punches though
Even then, I don't think Nintendo would try to piss or anger the company responsible for their second best selling series. They also wouldn't want to give them up either. GameFreak has a lot more power and leniency than people think. Iwata let them do Black/White 2 as long as they tried something new with it and they could have just pulled a third game.
Why doesn't it make sense? And even if there aren't status effects in the fighting game, or elemental advantage, the elements could just have different effects. Like fire always attack twice, or electric attacks being easier to combo with.
I wouldn't mind Mewtwo, Gallade and Gardevoir as psychic reps.
It's closer to your traditional fighting game than Smash Bros and is led by the Tekken devs.
They did say that the standard high/mid/low mixup game of most fighters will be replaced, we don't know with what yet.
>Namco Bandai making a Pokemon fighting game.
Now's the time. Get him in there, Harada. Even if he's a guest it'll be what we all wanted as kids.
Nothing really, it's just surprisingly strong with its multi-hit moves and Skill Link, though it is faster than both regular and Mega Chomp. That fanart is meant to seem like it's channeling a bit of that crazy strength Garchomp is known for.
Reminder that the roster isn't finalized and they're taking fan feedback on Twitter for what Pokemon you want to see as playable.
If you've got a Twitter, tweet the Pokemon you wanna see along with "#???". Probably should use its Japanese name too.
>Non fighting type will get in
Shame, if they did the final form of all the fighting types it would be a great roster. Hope they made it in anyways
I suppose they can already use most of the models they already got in Tekken and throw in some Pokemon skins over them. Doing 3D pokemons shouldn't be hard, especially for Bandai Namco since they're doing the models for Smash Bros 4.
They could but I'd prepare for 20 or so characters with more through DLC (it'll be free if Harada has his way).
Tekken has the advantage of being a long running series with established models, mechanics and movesets that only needs to be slightly tweaked with each new entry
Nigga, if we're getting an electric rodent, it's gonna be Pikachu. For every Raichu fan there's 10,000 pikachu fans. Shit ain't happening, sadly
I tried to keep the roster without legendaries, the exception being Mewtwo/Mega Mewtwo as the boss character.
Mite b cool. I'll probably take out Krookodile and put him in.
I'd agree about the legendary thing, but Meloetta has that great form changing lullaby gimmick. I think she's worth making an exception for.
Also Krookodile is better than Sawk.
He could be like the glass cannon character that has slow moves that need to be charged up, but are strong and have good range. Not big range, just medium. Making them too long range would be OP.
Seriously though, Raichu fits so much better. His tail has more range too.
Just please have my 2 favorite Pokemon Pangoro and Kingler in the roster and I'll buy at least 10 copies just to tell them how much I thank them
>For every Raichu fan there's 10,000 pikachu fans.
That and Luchachu REALLY needs to be a thing in Pokken. I mean I'll take Raichu over Pikachu 10 times out of 10, but Luchador Pikachu was created just for this day.
Why do i get the feeling my bro will be left out for faggots like Charizard and Blastoise in a fighting game?
Sheeeeit man, imagine recreating this fight.
So how about that heavily hinted Dragonite and Jynx?
Faggots on /v/ were calling other people retarded faggots for mentioning Pokemon that weren't fighting types in their wish list with the reason "Why would non-fighting type be in a fighting game? Fuck off go die kill self". I wish I were joking or exaggerating
>your favorite pokemon would fit this game really well but most likely won't be on the roster
Feels fucking terrible
Leaving out the original 2 Hitmons in a Pokemon fighting game would be a crime.
>still no Mega Hitmonchan where his gloves come off
PLEASE GIVE ME ELECTRODE
HAVE HIM PLAY AN EXPLOSIVE GUILE OR SOME SHIT
I bet Nintendo wants this to be the fighting game for core players while Smash is the party game.
I mean, Pokken is getting released on arcades first. They wouldn't do that if they weren't being serious.
They have Harada as co-producer, practically the main producer with Game Freak watching over his shoulder every now and again, someone whose actually extremely experienced with fighting games.
Smash has shitty Sakurai and his favoritism.
>mfw my favorite will never, not in a million years be in Pokken
Who knows this feel?
Harada is the big boss when it comes to Tekken, and I have not heard a single thing from him relating Smash, so I doubt many people from his Tekken team are involved in Smash's gameplay
I'll buy it if he's in
So only people that know how to fight are allowed in fighting games? Tell that to Capcom, and Namco. And just in case you're extremely retarded, we have dinosaurs, defense attorneys, creepy fanboy, photographers, clumsy scientist, pandas, and Pac-Man in a robot suit.
>mfw every gen, get stuck with starter main like 50 levels higher than the shit you get as you keep going
>rest of party consists of 2 hm slaves, whatever legendary because it starts high level, and 2 shit off types caught on route 1-5
>say fuck it, im breeding a full team of 6, and trading them to a new gen, the bonus trade xp allowing me to use more pokemon
hitmonchan is my starter, fuck James T. Pig, Smugleaf, and Wotter
>c-can I be in this game guys?...
>y-you didn't forgot I'm actually a Pokémon and that I exist... r-right?...
But that's wrong, you stupid moron.
Go back to elementary school.
>EToP Hitmonchan will never be a thing
No? Talking from a gameplay perspective.
Maybe not Tekken, but I know that there's some GvG and Tales of people working on Smash.
And Harada has made a statement on Smash before.
>According to Harada, Smash Bros should be taken seriously by hardcore fans. "It seems that the motivation behind the players in those core groups is not as different as I initially thought," said the Tekken man.
>"I came to this conclusion after seeing them in tournaments, and also after playing Smash Bros more myself and also looking at YouTube videos - I began to see a lot of similarities. So I think if each community surrounding Tekken, Street Fighter and Smash Bros. could look more open-mindedly at each other's games, you might find that there's a lot more similarities and a lot that you'd enjoy about the game, and that can be said for all sides."
What's that kid? I can't hear you over the sound of me being a better fighting bug than you.
Gud list, though I'd rather Seviper for possible Snake-y rep. Also,
>Mfw Greninja gets two stances: His normal, speedy ninjutsu stance with teleports and all sorts of ninpos and a slower one with his tongue retracted to be used for slapping the shit out of people at long distances
I really want Starmie because it would be easy to model but the attack animations would be fantastic since starmie has such a varied movepool and could be all about spinning fabulously
>Implying a horde of wild Gale Wing Talonflames isn't what Story mode pits you against
Name a better potential fighter. Oh wait, you can't.
Gamefreak swept Raichu under the rug many years ago
>mfw Mega Pikachu happens
The original screenshot with Lucario fighting Blaziken was clearly staged at a tournament for fighting type pokemon.
Banners with the fighting type symbol were all over the area.
>but pokémon is a GameFreak game.
>Tangela gets in
>Broken to fuck
>Infinite long range grapples
Arcade pokemon games are nothing new.
This will get arcade releases before being released on Wii U with more content. Simple.
>Nintendo vs. Capcom
this is long overdue
(and this is a WIP)
I really hope Pikachu isn't in because his hitbox would make him annoying to fight.
For those uninitiated, Tretta is like those CardAss games whose main purpose really is collecting cards and you battle them in the machine, in this case the cards are more like hard plastic pog things.
>tfw no Pokemon RTS where you control different pokemon species fighting for dominance in the wild
Pikachu doesn't know agility anymore. Anime (mostly) follows the 4 moves rule, and Pikachu's are Thunderbolt, Electroball, Iron Tail and Quick Attack.
Anyways Mega Lucario is mega angry which is why
it would be terrible.
no balance at all.
unless you are the type of fag who dismisses competitive game play in a multiplayer game.
then again pokemon has always been unbalanced as all hell(just like any Nintendo competitive game)
everyone in the anime is casual if you are autistic enough to care about competative pokemon.
also in the anime the moves tend to be not as useless.
Leech Seed taking down pokemon on its own.
Tailwhip doing damage
The anime itself is pretty yawnworthy with Serena being a piece of shit who doesn't even have a goal yet (and just now realized it- she's probably going to get into contests since they're back in ORAS)
The Gym Leader fights are almost as good as the opening cinematics.
>mfw Heracross is more or less guaranteed to be in
I mean, how could he not? Perfect bug rep, and he's pretty iconic. For once, my favorite is guaranteed to get in. Every other 'mon is just a bonus with him in.
Poliwrath better be in.
He's my favorite Pokemon and will make a great addition.
Dream Pokemon: go
Gengar, alakazam, scizzor, blaziken, hawlucha, snorlax, tangrowth, shiftry, ludicolo, bisharp, conkeldurr, Lucha libre pikachu, excadrill, wobbufett, hitmontop, magmortar and electivire
>Pokken is real
You know what, After seeing the Trailer and knowing that it could possibily be the MVC fighting style of Pokemon fighting games- I don't give a shit who is in.
Accept Hitmonchan, He's going to be in right?
I don't care what you say, even if it's 100% male, with a dress like that, Hit.mon.chan is predominately female
>this game wont get a US release until probably Q4 2015
>It's going to be japan time all over again
Sorry to break it to you but
you a gay nigga
IMO must haves are Hitmonchan & Lee , Primeape, Hirayama , Hawlucha , Snorlax , and Heracross. Honorable Mentions :Throh and Sawk.
We all know popular like Charizard are probally gonna get in so yeah.
most fighting games have a character that would fight like him.
hell last time a i played a 3D pokemon(Colosseum) Hitmontop had the same fighting stance has one of these type of characters.
hunched over and swinging their arms back n forth. while swaying about
>TFW no drunken fist pokemon because muh chilluns
yes yes autismal prime, but not everyone know that so by pointing to a reference like a character from a well known franchise would be a better tool for someone to understand how it would play without having to look it up.
of course that is moot if the person never played a fighting game before.
hey baby do those legs go all the way up
>tfw african princesses wont' never not look like niggers
It's really just a defense attorney whose shown no fighting skill in his games that hasn't been shown to fight and had to have his ass saved a few times.
At least Frank West covered wars.
Like the Pokenigger can't move his head independently from his body, so he looks like straight at the ground and fucking Luke is jumping over him.
It's just a stupid looking attack, and not even one I can discern as a real move. Dynamic Punch, maybe? Cause of that Dynamic pose?
I wonder what they will do with the type advantages. Will they remove them? Will Fire types have shitty matchups against all Pokes with Water type moves. That wouldn't seem fair unless you are able to tag out.
As long as this nigga is in, I'm happy.
>People getting hung up on what is not on peoples' rosters rather than what is.
This is going to be the worst part of rostering with this game.
THERE ARE LIKE SEVEN HUNDRED POKEMON
YOUR FAVORITE MAY NOT GET IN
So we 500 character roster now?
GOD I WANT SLAKING IN THIS
>6 on 6 tagout mode where elemental types come into play
>where elemental types come into play
Is /v/ seriously going to label everything multiplayer game Nintendo makes as a party game?
I'm honestly tired of seeing this bait
