Darkrai confirmed for Pokken Tournament

No word on Scizor or Empoleon

Bandai Namco has confirmed that Darkrai is the next Pokemon to be added to Pokken Tournament's arcade roster, coming in the July 20 update. Darkrai is a technique based fighter, and is shown using teleports, traps, and buffs in the gameplay footage we've seen so far. Its Burst also looks cool as hell, like the guys at Bandai Namco were fans of Persona.

There was no official announcement for the Wii U, but Darkrai, Scizor, and Empoleon were added to the Wii U version's data files in an earlier update, so it's just a matter of time now. It's unknown whether Scizor or Empoleon will be support Pokemon or playable fighters, but they were noticeably absent from the trailer, and that leaves hope for them to announced as playable down the line.
