Empoleon has just been announced as a playable character for Pokkén Tournament! The Water/Steel-type will be available in the arcade version beginning on December 15th. Its existence was first hinted at in datamining leaks during summer, but it will finally make its official debut now six months later.
Still no word if the extra characters, including Darkrai and others, will ever make it to the Wii U console version. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for some official word!
