Pokken Tournament adds Braixen, Mewtwo, and Garchomp

Three new fighters confirmed.

Pokken Tournament

The latest issue of CoroCoro Comic confirms Braixen, Mewtwo, and Garchomp as playable characters in Pokken Tournament for Wii U.

The three characters join the previously announced Blaziken, Charizard, Gardevoir, Gengar, Lucario, Machamp, Pikachu, Pikachu Libre, Sceptile, Shadow Mewtwo, Suicune, and Weavile for a total of 15 playable Pokemon fighters.

A fourth character, teased last week, is expected to be announced on January 15. We know it’s not one of these three characters, as none of these characters’ Japanese names have the character “ラ,” which was part of the teaser.

Pokken Tournament is due out for Wii U on April 28 in Japan and spring 2016 in North America and Europe.
