GameXplain has posted a deep analysis of what we've seen from Pokken Tournament so far, covering many details I haven't seen posted anywhere. Perhaps the niftiest feature is that your fighter Pokemon will grow in different stat areas like Pokemon from the main games, meaning no two Suicune or Pikachu will be exactly alike. It's speculated that maybe in the future Nintendo will release amiibo for each Pokemon to store your fighter's stats too. There are many enlightening observations revealing how this game works, its mechanics, and what's going on, so check out the video!

The Pokken Tournament demos are currently taking place in Japan and our Twitter friend ErikBarkas has taken photos of his gameplay!

Like in Smash Bros., every Pokemon has another "skin" you can use to help differentiate you from the same opponent (such as in 2-player mode). Lucario and Gardevoir are both available in red colors, Suicune in white, and Pikachu is available with blue pants (the red Machamp you see below is not an alternate color - Machamp glows red when it uses its Burst Attack). The Pokemon also have poses you can trigger, again like in Smash Bros..

Gardevoir Burst Attack / Pose / Red Version in 2P Mode / Win (Red Version)

Gardevoir / Technic Fighting Style / A: Psyshock, Forward + A: Assist Power, Back + AX: Calm Mind and Psychic, A in mid-air: Magical Leaf

More Support Pokemon and Stages

Eevee and Froagadier have been confirmed as Support Pokemon. Eevee knows Helping Hand, temporarily increasing your attack damage and restoring some of your health. Frogadier can use Water Pulse. Again, the function of the Support Pokemon are similar to Poke Ball Pokemon in Smash Bros.

An underwater aquarium stage was also confirmed. You can see Lugia and other Water Pokemon behind giant panes of glass in the ocean. Previous stages confirmed are Chrom Town (from the very first trailer) and Phos Volcano (from last week's stream).

And on the same day we post the Flygon-EX Box, we get the card's translation! Thanks goes to Puddizzle for the translation!

Flygon-EX and other Gym Challenge Promos

Flygon-EX - Dragon - HP170
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Sand Song
Once during your turn (before your attack), if this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon, you may have your opponent switch his or her Active Pokemon with 1 of his or her Benched Pokemon.

[G][F][F][C] Spiral Burn: 80+ damage. Flip a coin until you get tails. This attack does 30 more damage for each heads.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fairy (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

As posted previously, those who attend Japan's Gym Challenge tournaments from February to April will receive a booster pack featuring twelve promo cards. In addition to Flygon-EX and Lanturn, the photo above reveals the other promos are Tynamo, Fearow (with an Ancient Trait), Vulpix, Rhydon, Swablu, Acro Bike, Energy Recycle, Fighting Energy, Water Energy, and Grass Energy. The three Basic Energy feature new artwork.

Energy Recycle is a new card, but it may be the spiritual successor to Energy Recycle System. The card is covered up right now, but according to some Twitter folks, it returns 5 basic Energy from your discard pile to your deck (the artwork seems to indicate that too).

Fearow having an Ancient Trait of course indicates that the mechanic will continue in the TCG. The Ancient Trait is new, green, and features what we think is the delta symbol. Considering Emerald Break will feature Rayquaza, the green color and it being delta make sense.

Flygon-EX Box Ad Flygon-EX Promo

A new "Flygon-EX Box" will be released on April 15th. It will feature a holo Flygon-EX promo, a jumbo version, and four booster packs. The Flygon-EX will be released in Japan next month, so we don't know what the card does yet. Looks like they're skipping over Absol-EX and M Absol-EX for now...

VIZ Media has announced that Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction will be released on DVD in North America on February 17th. It will cost $19.97. An accompanying manga adaptation of the film will also be released on February 3rd.

It should be noted that when the Diancie film aired on Cartoon Network, most of the original orchestral music was replaced with the dub's synthesizer music. This is the first Pokemon film since the 3rd movie to feature dub-original music (and under TPCi, the music is poor-quality and lacks any kind of emotion). It will be interesting to see if the DVD keeps the original Japanese music like most previous films or if something changed with Pokemon's music rights or ability to pay for the music. On the other hand, if the DVD keeps the original music, it'll mean something changed with Pokemon's music broadcasting rights for TV, though this possibility is probably the less likely scenario.

Team Magma Great Ball

Well forget what I said about this set possibly being a gimmicky set. We've received a photo of Team Magma Great Ball from last week's CoroCoro Ichiban. Although it is hard to read, it appears to say the following:

Team Magma Great Ball - Trainer
Item

Search your deck for a Basic Pokemon that has Team Magma in its name and a [F] Energy card, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

Team Aqua Great Ball will probably have the same effect, but with Team Aqua Pokemon and Water Energy. Thanks goes to Franco T. for the translation! We should have scans and translations of the set within the next 48 hours, so be sure to check back!
