Pokken Tournament is a fighting video game developed by Bandai Namco Studios and published by The Pokemon Company. The game combines gameplay elements from Bandai Namco’s Tekken series with characters from Nintendo’s Pokemon franchise. It was released for Japanese arcades in July 2015, and worldwide for the Wii U in March 2016. An enhanced port for the Nintendo Switch, titled Pokken Tournament Deluxe, was released in September 2017.
Pokken Tournament is a fighting game in which two fighters battle against each other using various Pokemon, with gameplay shifting between Field Phase where the Pokemon move freely around the arena, and Duel Phase where they move relative to each other similar to the Tekken games. Unlike most arcade fighting games, which use a traditional joystick and buttons, the arcade version is played using console-style controllers, which are designed so that players who are not used to arcade sticks can get into the game more easily.
