Pokkén Tournament Pits Players Against Shadow Mewtwo

shadow-mewtwo-pokkenWhat’s better than Shadow Link? Shadow Mewtwo. The Pokémon fighter Pokkén Tournament will be released worldwide in early 2016 for the Nintendo Wii U, which was originally released as an arcade game, and will benefit from some of the post-launch updates made in Japan. Players will be able to face off against a brand new foe, aforementioned Shadow Mewtwo, which can even Mega Evolve. Pikachu Libre is also show off as the newest of the playable battlers in the trailer below.

Some websites misreported this as a “new mega form“, but it seems to be just a cosmetic change with the possibility of Pokkén-exclusive attacks or abilities. I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t introduced into the main series, just as how the original Shadow Pokémon were a Colosseum/XD exclusive (nostalgia). That being said, do YOU want to see Shadow Mewtwo in Pokémon Z?

  1. Shadow Mewtwo is cool and I’d like it in a game, but can we get Shadow Lugia first? Maybe this is a hint towards a “Gale of darkness” remake though.

      1. I never get my hopes up for anything involving Pokemon. I’m still waiting on them to give us Mew but instead they give us BS filler events like Zoroark with Sludge Bomb. Stupid Gamefreak.

  2. I like the idea sounds fun but I’d prefer for it to be in game only and not brought to the anime.

    Speaking of remember when everyone thought this was real ?

  3. Speaking of Shadows
    I came up with a idea for a possible Pokemon title
    Bare with me there is very little they haven’t touched
    Pokemon Dusk and Dawn, something involving a Pokemon that represent the Sun and the Moon…
    otherwise…we got nothing

    1. Original…. This had been a fairly popular fan title for years you do realise . Also Digimon did it.

  4. I like this guy he looks pure evil, most likely this is not going to be in the main game series like most people want cuz the developer of this game is not GF and we all know GF will not tke a risk without deep study.

  5. I like Shadow Mewtwo’s design. The orange and black colours look amazing. I heavily do doubt that this would be in the main games tho. I just can’t wait for 2016, I feel like it’s about to be a good year for gaming! ;D

  6. We’re creeping closer and closer to November 15th, when Masuda appears on that Pokemon talk show in Japan. I feel like everyone has forgotten about that already. I’m still holding out that we’ll get our reveal by then.

    1. Haven’t forgotten just very very tired of waiting and holding onto any hope. If we get near the 15th and nothing’s hinted at being announced in the slightest or at least the 15th comes and goes with nothing announced I don’t want to be tragically defeated. It’s happened b4 and it’ll prolly happen again, but I’m bracing myself for the worst case scenario this time. I guess we’ll just have to wait and c. Only 10 more days to go lol

    2. The new Zygarde formes have been out for almost two months and the damn suspense is just killing me! And not to mention, making me nervous. What if these forms truly are anime-exclusive (10%, Core, and 100%) *shudders*. Just announce the game already! I feel like that November is our last chance this year and if we don’t get it announced this year, the next best chance is during January which will be the 3rd anniversary of X and Y’s announcement to the world by the late Mr. Iwata. May he rest in peace. I still miss him. Nintendo won’t be the same without him.

What if these forms truly are anime-exclusive (10%, Core, and 100%) *shudders* (I’m know as the worrywart in my family. Logically, it’s highly unlikely they’d let the designs go to waste. They’re great designs. Zygarde 10% is based on Fenrir and Zygarde 100% is totally based on Hel and it fits the Norse Mythology scheme). And I watched both XY093 and the Mega Evolution: Act IV Special. I feel like there is more to this. I can’t wait to watch future episodes actually. It was interesting to see Malva by Lysandre’s side most of the time in the Mega Evolution Special and that she has a Mega necklace hidden under her shirt. I swear I get this weird feeling that her and Lysandre are married and the the Key Stone Ring he has is a wedding ring. Lol. Just announce the game already!

She has anime art which is a copy of her Sugimori art and the Hoenn Elite Four had no Key Stones on their person in the Sugimori art yet had them for the post-game. Makes me wonder.
