Is this game Pokémon X Tekken?

Nintendo has registered the trademarks Pokkén Fighters and Pokkén Tournament in Europe.

Last year the trademarks were registered in North America, alongside a video from the Tokyo Game Show giving us a glimpse of what appeared to be a Wii U Pokémon fighting game at the end. The one shot of this game showed a Mega Blaziken and a Mega Lucario facing off in a city.

Now that the trademarks have appeared again, it's likely we may find out what this is come E3.

If this is a real fighting game with Pokemon I will go ballistic! I hope it's nothing but Fighting Pokemon as well. No Charizard no Pikachu, just Blaziken, Hitmonlee, Primeape and Mewtwo! Well to name a few.

I'd like it to be a little more complex than Smash Bros but simpler than something like Tekken.

Given how tight Bandai Namco are with Nintendo (e.g. Smash 4 & Tekken Tag Tournament Wii U Edition) and that Tekken X Street Fighter seems to have died, a Pokemon-themed fighting game doesn't seem too far-fetched.


I don't know if I was exactly wanting for a Tekken game with Pokemon, but this idea is so bizarre and fun that I'm eager to see it through.
